The beginning of the year is a great time to give your home a brand new look, so why not shake off the January blues with an interior makeover? Here, we give you some top tips on how you can bring your décor fully up-to-date. Make 2014 your most stylish year yet!
We all know that beige is the most practical and versatile colour to use in interior décor, but it has to be said that it isn't the most exciting colour. Why not cheer up your neutral-coloured décor with some bright accessories? Adding in some colourful print cushions is a good way of giving your home a makeover on a budget, and it also means that when you get bored of the look, you can easily swap for some different accessories.
We've already seen shades of navy reigning supreme on the catwalk this year, and according to House Beautiful we can expect to see a variety of blue shades making their way into our interior décor, too. From soft duck-egg blue to cobalt, peacock and royal blue, you're sure to find a shade to suit you, so why not invest in some blue soft furnishings, or even go for a blue accent wall?
Buying good quality furniture is an investment for life, so why not bring some classic pieces into your home for the New Year? Solid wood furniture is always more likely to last than cheaper pieces, but don't worry that you'll have to break the bank; second-hand shops are known to have lots of high-quality pieces that you can get for a snip.
Now that you've given your home a beautiful new makeover, it's more important than ever to make sure your new things are protected from damage or theft. Insuring both your building and its contents is a great way to make sure that if the worst should happen, you'll be protected. Read more about the kinds of insurance you can get from InsureMe-on-Line.
