1. Perk up with pink

The time has come to think pink – or to rethink pink, anyway. Once the preserve of girls’ bedrooms, pink is now the colours du jour for any room, especially on statement chairs. Use the right shade and it will make any room look fresh, modern and very grown-up.

2. Work in a wall mural

A wall should never be void of personality.For colour, detail and sheer character, large scale wall murals are always a good choice. More refined than a wallpaper and definitely more interesting than a coat of paint, adorning a wall with an oversize flower or a work of art is a shortcut to making a room something to marvel at.

3. Curate a cosy corner

If old boy’s clubs are your thing, then go for something old-school like the this snug corner. A selection of treasured artwork and interesting curios will give a small space plenty of character and personality, while good ambient and task lighting will ensure you can read a book in comfort, and style.

4. Juxtapose the old with the new

This expertly curated space cleverly mixes classic decor with contemporary. Reflective surfaces can often look cheap and tacky, but when used sparingly, they can bring a sparkle to and otherwise chaotic space. We particularly like the use of straight lines and curvaceous shapes to add dimension and interest.

5. Wow with a wall of art

There is no better way to add personality to a space.Feature walls are a simple yet high impact way to transform any room in your home.Invest wisely in something you love to bring pleasure and potential returns.
