New Year, new look for your home

Brighten up your house

THE decorations will be down soon and after the bright lights and colourful baubles adorning our homes of the last few weeks, any room can be left looking a little sombre in comparison.

So to liven up your home and give it a new look for a new year, try these top five little changes:

Accessory accents: these are quick, easy and work in any home. For example adding a new cushion or two to a sofa or chair will give an instant lift and can add colour and depth.

Adding a matching or complementing throw to your sofa will give it a completely new look and is perfect for chilly January nights.

If you don’t have the money, or time to paint a whole room, choose an accent wall to add a splash of colour and to create a feature.

Wallpaper is becoming increasingly available in Spain and opens up a whole new world of options with colours, patterns and textures that just cannot be created with paint. Again, choosing just an accent wall is a cheaper and quicker option than doing a whole room.

Replace your Christmas tree with some more foliage, either of the fresh variety, or silk flower arrangements or plants for a permanent solution.
