Ways to brighten up your room!
So here it is again, that time of year when everybody starts to think about what they need to get done for Christmas. You’re sitting there, in your living room, looking round and realising that there’s something missing. Not only have you got to buy presents for every man and their dog, but you’ve also just realised that the place where all the festivities are going to be happening is just not up to scratch! It’s just all a bit dull. But, do not fret! You’ve still time to transform your home without calling an interior designer. How? Well it’s all about adding that little extra something; here are some ideas to get you inspired.
It is without doubt that winter is most certainly here, and the prospect of getting any natural light inside your house seems impossible (especially if you’re still using curtains from the 19th century!) What you need to is move into the future and to invest in some shutters. These would be a great way of bringing a bit of life into your living room, changing it from dark and dismal to bright and cheery. When choosing your shutters it would also be a good idea to look for ones which create an impact. Good examples of these can be found in the Hillarys range of roller blinds, which come in all different kinds of designs and patterns, so there’ll definitely be something for you!

Another good way to spruce your living room up a bit is to choose one wall (usually the centre one) and to concentrate on it. Fashioning a ‘statement wall’ is a great way to establish structure in your room as creates a point of focus for those within it. It adds character to your room, as a bit of personality can shine through the choices you make for your wall. Whether you decide to paint it, wallpaper it or to just stick some photos on it, there is plenty scope for you to get creative! So get thinking now and you’ll have your room ready for Xmas in no time.
This is a clever technique which not only brightens up your room, but it also makes it feel as if the space is bigger. Buying a mirror and putting it in place requires minimal effort, but it could have such a positive effect on the overall look of your room; revealing a certain charm which you never knew existed. So why not try looking for a tasteful mirror to complement the style you’re going for? It could work wonders!
