- Colour Pops
I love bright colours and usually have something cheerful as a focus point in each room. Think shutters or blinds, a quirky piece of furniture or a feature wall. If there’s a dress colour you love, why not take it along to a DIY store and get some colour matched paint? If you already own a fabulous, bright lamp shade, start there! Why not use design bundles craft patterns to upcycle things you already own, colour pops don’t have to be expensive.
- Gallery Walls.
How many of us spend our days taking photos of our children, families and the world around us, only to leave them trapped in our laptops? Or perhaps you’ve had professional photos taken, but don’t have them on display yet. I love seeing photos of our adventures wherever I am in the house and it’s so lovely to have reminders of how tiny the kids were! Frames can be identical or you could use frames of different colours and sizes that you may have lying around the house already, it’s what’s inside the frames that counts.
- Typography Prints
Prints can make the world of difference to a room. Using Design Bundles tattoo lettering font, you can create your own, bespoke inspirational quotes, type up your favourite song lyrics and design name prints or birth announcements for your little one’s bedroom. Our favourite of the fonts is ‘The Bearded Sailor’, you even get the option to preview your text.
- Wall and Window Stickers
This is an inexpensive way to brighten up any room, without committing to a whole new colour scheme. Stickers can easily be added to existing decor and changed as your child grows or when you want to change the theme of your room. Window stickers offer even more flexibility, as they can be removed and reused easily, so they can be changed each season or in line with special occasions such as Christmas, Easter and even birthdays!
- Fun and Functional
Have fun decorating and furnishing your home, but make it functional. Think about who will be living in and using the rooms in your home and take it from there. Why not create a breakfast/snack station in your home so that the children can be independent at mealtimes and help themselves to snacks at agreed times. You could even label the shelves or boxes using the design bundles fonts, to help everyone find their way around. Choosing your favourite or really interesting pieces for your most used rooms is a great way to ensure that you get to enjoy them often.
Think about how you can set out your furniture so it can be accessed and used as intended. Set up inviting areas for reading, a book nook can offer a much appreciated sanctuary in a children’s playroom and a reading chair can do the same in an older child’s or adult’s bedroom. There are some beautiful reading inspired quotes you could add too. Make children’s areas engaging and be sure to set things up at an appropriate height.
