From Old to New

Utilizing your own furnishings can be one of the most affordable ways to improve the style,feel and value of your home. You can save time and money by following our very own Refresh, Revamp & Restyle method to make a real difference to each room. You can transform the old to new in as little as 15 minutes or complete in a weekend. Refresh the room by starting with the very basics.

  1. Minimalise, Clean and Declutter- Pack it, sell it or donate it if you haven’t used an item in a year. Complete a spring clean to emphasise key features and introduce freshness into your space. Use stylish storage for items you use regularly like woven baskets or trendy boxes as it declutters and adds character.
  2. Introduce Crispness, Warmth and Relaxation – Add some beautifully potted green plants to purify and bring the outdoors in. Add furniture covers, patterned rugs, soft pillows and delicate throws in neutral tones or with splashes of a complimentary colour. Create a relaxing mood by layering light with candles, lamps and update to a more modern option.Pick up a paintbrush to create lasting, cool and natural surrounds.
  3. Make an Entrance – Reconfigure the layout of the furniture ensuring there is some distance from walls and take advantage of any views outside. Streamline how you can move through the room.Install a mirror to reflect light and give the illusion of a larger space. Use your favourite scent in a diffuser or candle to provide a warm and welcoming tone from the minute you walk into the room.

Many of these elements and accessories can be purchased at your own local affordable homeware stores such as Kmart, Amart Furniture, TKMax, Beach Warehouse or Target. After some smart styling you can now sit back, relax and enjoy your own escape to paradise.
