5 THRIFTY FIXES
HL Decor Editor Leana Schoeman’s five smart tips to transform your space using items you already own. It won’t cost you a cent!
Rearrange your art, playing with height and perspective. Running out of room on the walls? Utilise the floor space for a fresh visual impact.
Turn a plain hallway into a grand entrance by bringing together complementary collectables in Instagram-worthy eye-catching displays.
You’ll add more texture when you layer throws, linens and fabrics, not only in the bedroom but throughout the house. ‘Break the rules,’ says Leana. ‘Tap into your inner creative and showcase furnishings you’ve grown tired of in new and unexpected ways.’
A touch of green can liven up the home, and it’s easy to do when you’ve got a garden – move bigger planters inside to create a verdant corner or place a delicate branch in a large vase.
Dust off the antiques you inherited from gran, paint them in a vibrant colour and juxtapose with modern pieces for a vintage-chic effect.
