News/Blog Photo


After a few years of being homebound, it’s only natural to feel the need to refresh your décor. Even if your budget is tight, there are lots of simple and creative ways to update and improve the layout to work better for your lifestyle. Check out our best tips for modernizing your living space below.

Repaint It

It’s inexpensive, easy to DIY and it can transform your living space instantly. For these reasons, repainting your living space is one of the biggest go-to strategies for refreshing interiors, but instead of sticking with the same old neutrals, be bold with colour. Different colours evoke different emotions and adding a splash of something different to the walls is a guaranteed way to modernize and rejuvenate your interior. So, consider what type of vibe you want to convey in your space and in case you’re wondering which colours are ‘in’ right now, it’s all about nature-inspiring greens and dark, moody shades.

Refresh with Bold Accents

Even something simple like switching up your accenting colours can have a dramatic impact if you’re looking to change things up. For those who don’t want to take such a bold leap with statement walls, updating minor features with a pop of colour like throw pillows, cushions, rugs, and accessories can be just as refreshing.

Get Rid of Clutter

These days, modernizing your space doesn’t really require you to add anything. In fact, it’s all about subtracting to hone in on those minimalistic vibes. By eliminating excess clutter, you can make your interior look larger, more inviting and airy. Plus, it will be much easier to keep tidy and organized.

Add Greenery

Since nature has been such a source of comfort lately, it makes sense to use it as our muse and bring more of it indoors. So, if you’ve been waiting to jump on the plant craze train, now is the best time. Plants will elevate your entire space, especially oversized ones. Just place them on a windowsill or bare corner as a natural showpiece or go all in and create a green corner. No matter how you place them, plants are an easy way to spruce up your living space and breathe fresh air into it – literally.

Get New Furniture

Bold and curvaceous furniture is another hot trend right now. If you have the budget for it, updating your couch or living room chairs could be an excellent way to modernize your home – especially if they are starting to show signs of wear and tear. When it’s time to replace them, choose something that reflects your personal style. Luxe velvet and sumptuous colours like burgundy, blue, and mustard yellow are all the trends right now.

Add Art

If the walls have been feeling bare, adding art is a simple solution to help brighten up your space, plus there’s no better time to help support local artists than now. Scour your online marketplace or local coffee shops for creative pieces that speak to you and will look stunning alongside your colour scheme and décor style.
