If you’re like me, you may have to use a room for a few different purposes, maybe you have an open plan kitchen and living room or a living-dining room and are not sure how you can split up the space. Fear not as I have compiled a list of the most inventive ways to create your own room dividers and you may already own the items you need to do it!
Apologies for the lack of posts over the last couple of weeks, there has been a lot going on and I’ve only just had the mental capacity to sit down at my laptop and start writing properly again. Luckily, I have had the most wonderfully relaxing week off from the day-job after a particularly stressful month and I feel like my brain has been rewired and I finally have a sense of calm, which I assume will last for precisely the next two days before I return to the rat-race ;).
If you’re anything like me you’re constantly asking for the ‘big light’ to be turned off in the evenings – there’s something about the warm glow of a softly lit room that makes you feel so cosy! It can be hard to find affordable lamps that don’t scream out the price tag but I’ve filtered through the cheap tat to find some pieces you’ll be proud to light up – and they’re all under £20!
So, I got a bit over excited over the weekend and have already started buying a few bits like these wonderful curtains I found at IKEA. I really feel like they are going to make a HUGE impact on the room, so am very eager to get those up. I’ve also ordered some little teal accent pieces and some more greenery and I think that’s going to be it until payday this month.
Fed up of being constantly told about the perks of minimalism? Me too. I like stuff, I like living in a home that looks lived in so I am DOWN for this trend. It started gaining popularity at the end of last year as an antidote to Marie Kondo’s ‘less is more’ ethos and is based on the idea of creating your own unique space by injecting your personality and interests into a room.
I really do value my time off, so as much as I love a good project, if something that I could buy for £20 is going to take me hours and hours to DIY, let’s be real – I’m just going to buy it. However, there are some really simple, easy & CHEAP ways to spruce up your home and here are some of my favourites!
If you’ve ever used them you’ll completely understand my love/hate relationship with command hooks. They really are amazing when you can’t drill holes in your walls but also have a penchant for falling down.
Who doesn’t love a good coffee table book and interior design books always look stunning – I could spend hours leafing through the beautiful rooms contained in these pages.
If there’s one thing I’m good at it’s filling up a space on a minimal budget and a huge part of that is knowing where to shop. There’s bargains on every highstreet and all over the internet, sometimes it just take a little hunting.
I’m slowly falling in love with teal, it’s such a decadent yet modern colour and really brings life into a room. This is definitely going to be the colour I start injecting into my living room.
