6 Simple Ways To Add Style To Your Home

Making your home look stylish can be a big task that often seems confusing. Between feature walls, bench tops, new furniture, and a whole heap of décor, how do you make your humble abode resemble the ones you see in the magazines? Luckily, there are some easy ways that you can refresh your space without breaking the bank. Here are some simple tips inspired by professional interior designers for adding style to your home.

New Linen

New linen can instantly add style to your home, particularly in the bedroom and lounge. For a quick update, all you have to do is pop some colourful pillows on the couch or lay a throw on the bed. But if you’re after something more permanent, invest in new linen for your bed – think bambusa bamboo sheet sets, bold quilt covers and decorative pillows in fresh colours and patterns. Whether it’s monochrome, floral, animal print or stripes, popular retailers such as Yo Home offer boundless ideas and inspiration.

Add Some Décor

Little bits and pieces can add a whole lot of style and personality to your home, so don't underestimate the power of a few trinkets here and there. Think a gorgeous vase, statement coasters, a feature clock or some cute knick-knacks, these can all work to give your interior a cohesive look. Be inspired by the latest trends and incorporate marble, rose gold, bold prints, interesting typography or a pineapple (for good measure) to achieve that that stylish edge. Whatever way you choose to go, stick to the one colour palette and don't go over the top with the décor items.

Fabulous Artwork

A great piece of art is perfect for your lounge, living room, kitchen or hallway as it can create a stylish feature wall without committing to a new coat of paint. Depending on your home and personal style, opt for something that makes a statement but also complements the rest of your interior.

Indoor Plants

Have you seen the gorgeous succulents and terrariums around at the moment? They're the perfect addition to your home because they add a wave of colour and are an interesting feature on your coffee table or windowsill. If you want to take the indoor plants theme to the next level, consider installing a vertical herb garden on a kitchen or patio wall.

Add Texture

You can also demonstrate style through size and texture, which is great if you love a monochrome look. Add interest in your living spaces with shaggy rugs, cashmere throws, marble bench tops, tiled splash backs or wooden accents. The contrasting textures will provide depth and stop a minimal palette from being boring.

A Splash of Copper

Copper and rose gold are really trending in homewares right now, and there's good reason for it – they’re so stylish! Add a splash of copper to your home with updated hardware or a piece of décor, such as a lamp or fruit bowl.

Adding style to your home doesn't have to be a big, expensive project. If you use these tips and add a couple of things to each room, you'll instantly update the style of your home and give it a fresh new look. How do you keep your home stylish? Tell us in the comments below!
