Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - LUXE FOR LESS -

1 Have plenty of plants!

‘You can never have enough plants in your home. Plants will not only trans­form your home but can also change its vi­bra­tion. I love De­li­cious Mon­sters and bam­boo palms.’

2 Make soft fur­nish­ings work for you

‘In­vest in beau­ti­ful and goodqual­ity cur­tains – they can make or break a room. And re­mem­ber, beau­ti­ful scat­ter cush­ions will take your or­di­nary couches and chairs and make them look ex­tra­or­di­nary!’

3 Work from a neu­tral base

‘Keep the dom­i­nant pieces in your home neu­tral shades, then add colour­ful ac­ces­sories like vases, throws, mir­rors, scat­ter cush­ions and lamp­shades.’

4 Play with mir­rors

‘Mir­rors are great for mak­ing smaller rooms ap­pear larger. I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate unique-look­ing mir­rors.’

5 Hunt for trea­sures

‘I love vin­tage pieces of fur­ni­ture. One of my favourite pas­times is vis­it­ing an­tique stores and look­ing for beau­ti­ful and time­less finds.’
