Spend on standout piecesWhen it comes to one-off items or vintage gems, don’t be afraid to blow the budget on furniture you may not have the opportunity to purchase again.Assuming it’s true love rather than a passing fad, filling your house with treasured belongings is the best way to create an environment with personality and character. Of course, this is assuming the money earmarked for that must-have midcentury lamp wasn’t meant for something non-negotiable, such as a mortgage payment!Get inspiration on upcycling second-hand finds, another good tip for first homes
Laura Wheat added this to Architecture: 10 Ways to Style a Period Fireplace
Try a twosome When it comes to fireplaces, symmetrical styling works a treat. Building matching cabinets in the alcoves means focus stays on the fire. This stylish living room lends further emphasis to the central space with a swish, oversized ottoman.Browse more ideas for your chimney breast alcoves
Cheryl Freedman added this to 10 Ways to Make the Most of the Extra Day This Leap Year
Rearrange your furnitureBored with your sofa by the window? How about moving your dining room chairs into the lounging area? Or what about changing your cushions around? Leap Day is the perfect time to rethink the furniture arrangements in your home and decide if they might work far better in a completely different permutation. It can make a dramatic difference and, of course, costs nothing.
Feioi added this to 14 Essential Things to Consider When Painting a Room
Focus on the detailsOnce you’ve decided on the walls and ceiling, think about the other painted details, such as woodwork and mouldings. These can include skirting boards, architraves, doors, windows, cornicing, fireplace surrounds, radiators, picture rails and dado rails. Again, like ceilings, the traditional approach would be to paint them white. However, as with ceilings, brilliant white can be discordant with other colours. Usually, an off-white or a couple of shades lighter is a more flattering and harmonious way to achieve the same look.Alternatively, if these details are to be admired, consider contrasting them, or going darker, as here. This works well in both contemporary and traditional settings, and there’s the added practical benefit that darker paint will withstand grubby fingermarks and shoe scuffs.
Laura Wheat added this to 9 Ways to Complement the Character of Your Victorian Living Room
Pay attention to upholsteryDetails such as rolled arms, wing backs and turned wooden legs will give your seating a subtle Victorian vibe. Aim to include one or two of these characteristics across all of your upholstered pieces, without going overboard. This living space achieves a brilliant balance: vintage safari chairs, a buttoned ottoman and an elegant, plain sofa make for an inviting ensemble.
Laura Wheat added this to Why Your Home Needs a Pair of Vintage Armchairs
Feature a desert favouriteThese handsome Danish Safari chairs were designed by Kaare Klint in the 1930s, but they could easily be contemporary. Looking to bring in a laid-back, organic element to prevent a room from feeling too ‘done’? This type of chair is a top choice.
