This morning’s post is about making small changes to your space without blowing your budget – whether it’s a lick of paint, a vinyl sticker or two, a doable DIY project or using wallpaper to make a difference.
Hit your local junk shop or raid your parent’s cupboards in search for something that’s gaudy-beautiful. Maybe it needs a lick of paint or maybe it’s already a beautiful colour (like this so-hideous-its-fabulous fish vase) and give it pride of place in your home. A talking point and visual focus.
A pop of unexpected colour can transform a space. Renting an apartment and loathe to make too much of a change to things? Paint the back of your front door and enjoy the shot of colour every time you close the door behind you.
Make something out of nothing. How cool is this shelf unit made entirely out of crates? I absolutely love it. If you’re worried about a wall of crates toppling over – secure them to each other using cable ties. And for an even slicker look, paint them a uniform colour.
Make tiles and wallpaper your friends. You don’t need to blow your budget on decorative tiles or fancy wallpaper – just a splashback or papered corner wall can make a huge difference.
Curate your memories. The good old gallery wall is such a great way to show off your interests and personality.
Floating shelves are inexpensive, are super practical and can be an opportunity to bring pretty into your home.
Think of cheaper alternatives. Can’t afford to paper an entire wall? Order a series of vinyl stickers and ‘paper’ your wall with them – aren’t these triangles great? This bed is also placed on a platform made using cheap and cheerful wood palettes – clever!
