After watching Sex And The City and all the expensive interiors, heres some of my ideas for the not so expensive, YET, expensive looking interiors, (does that make sense).
Some very inexpensive ideas, sometimes just simple adjustments to our interiors changes the whole outlook.
I do love the tray coffee table in Carries new apartment, here is something you can do to dress or make your own coffee table look interesting. Stack books or whatever you like to collect, some of your favourite accessories that reflect your own personal interests on to a tray on the coffee table. Picture by interior designer James Michael Howard.
Pictures and lots of them, they are a great way of adding character to an otherwise dull wall, you will also find people or friends visiting your home will love looking at them.
They can add so much colour to white walls, vibrant colours will bring the walls to life.
Wall stickers are a great idea for kids rooms or the play room and very inexpensive, Ikea.
Bookshelves, your own personal library goes very well in a living room, Shelves and library ladder from Ikea.
Go quirky with your bookshelves, don’t be afraid to experiment and don’t just put books on them, mix it up with some of your personal accessories.
Even better, why not wallpaper the back of the bookshelves or paint them a different colour, picture from Country Living.
Add the cosy factor, The Rug, it can totally change the look of any room, just a simple rug.
You can also make an impact with a rug, imagine this room without the floral rug, it is the key to the rooms design, picture from Channel 4.
Another idea that will cost you nothing, change your furniture around, I think interior designer James Michael Howard has a great eye for placing furniture in any room.
I really like the layout of this room, the glass desk turned out towards the centre of the room instead of placing it against the wall, it makes the room more interesting, check out his website lots of lovely interior pictures and great ideas.
I drive my partner mad, each time he comes home the sofa is in a different place, told him if he keeps complaining it will be out in the yard next time with him on it, Ha.
