Wallpaper Inspiration

Wallpaper is great for adding personality, texture and colour to your home. It can make big spaces seem cosy and inviting and small spaces seem airy and light. You can make a real style statement using just one wall and it’s one of my favourite ways to update a home.

The beauty of wallpaper is it’s ideal if you’re not too confident about making a huge statement. Covering one wall in a bright and stylish wallpaper can transform a whole room. I’ve selected some of my favourite wallpaper designs which are suitable for those who want to make a big statement and those who want to be slightly more subtle.

10 Space-Saving Tips For Your Home

If you’re struggling for space at home fear not, I have compiled my top 10 savvy space-saving tips to help you maximise storage and space.

1. Ditch your bedside table for a shelf

Make effective use of your bedroom wall. Pop a shelf on there and you have a bedside table that saves a ton of space.

2. Pop your TV on the wall

Another space-saving tip involving your walls. Mount your TV to free up space on your dressing table.

3. Add a bookshelf 

If you need to create the illusion of taller ceilings invest in a vertical book shelf. It’s a great storage piece and will draw the eye upwards.

4. Built-in bench

This works great in a kitchen, lounge or dining room. Opt for a bench with a hollow bottom and it can also double up as extra storage.

5. Stick to white

Not only do white walls give a fresh and clean feel, they help to make a room look bigger than it actually is. You can add flashes of colour with cushions, prints and throws.

6. Keep window ledges clear

We all have photo’s, nice cards, flowers, random objects from your holiday in Spain, but refrain from putting them all on your window ledge. A simple vase with flowers or a set of candles is quite enough.

7. Floor space

Use the space under your bed effectively. Buy some storage boxes if they will fit or use flat pack bags to store clothing.

8. Towel storage

Add a rail to your sink to hang hand towels. Roll larger towels and store in drawers or on bathroom shelving.

9. Use your ceiling 

Buy a pan rack to store pots, pans and other kitchen utensils on. These items take up space in cupboards that you don’t necessarily have. Hang them on a rack and create a country feel and stylish kitchen.

10. Clutter free

Clear your worktops of anything that you don’t use daily, use cupboards and drawers to store all the bits and pieces that don’t need to be out all the time. You’ll be amazed at the difference this makes and the extra space you will create.
