Candles, books and flowers c/o House Network
I posted recently about interior decor and it's certainly a hot topic on the blogosphere; Pinterest is full of dream home ideas and ways in which you can update your home, whatever your budget.
I thought with this post it would be nice to look at some ways in which you can update your space without busting the budget; a few simple and inexpensive touches can really quickly and easily transform the look of a room. Here are a few of my favourites.
Coffee table books: Nothing makes a room look chic like an artful pile of well chosen books. Coffee table books can be about any topic, but they should be beautiful and interesting, and make you want to pick them up and look at them. Switching up the books you have in your home is an easy and fun way of doing this.
Scented candles: Candles are a lovely way to set a little ambience in your home, and scented candles also release a lovely aroma! These ones are vanilla and they smell delicious. You can add colour with candles too; these neutral ones work perfectly with the colour palette in my living room but you could introduce a splash of colour with a bright candle without too much commitment!
Flowers: Can't afford to spend out on fresh flowers weekly? During the summer months you can grow your own if you have a windowsill spare, or choose fake ones; they're so realistic nowadays and a world away from the plastic 90's styles. They'll brighten up any corner. You can also pick up cacti and succulents fairly cheaply and they are really easy to keep, so these are a good alternative to brighten up your space.
