South African Garden and Home - - Inspiratio­ns -

Start by bring­ing in ac­ces­sories with dif­fer­ent tex­tures such as scat­ters, throws and rugs. This is an easy way to up­date a room every sea­son and it adds per­son­al­ity as well.

Rich colours in fab­rics such as vel­vets and che­nilles also help to up the tem­per­a­ture, fig­u­ra­tively speak­ing. A vel­vet ot­toman with but­toned uphol­stery is an ex­cel­lent ex­am­ple.

Look for items with in­tri­cate de­tails such as an or­nate mir­ror or a dec­o­ra­tive lamp to in­tro­duce a luxe fac­tor with­out clut­ter­ing the room.

Don’t over­look the power of wood. It has a nat­u­ral warmth and the dif­fer­ent grains and shades can be used to bring a bland scheme to life.
