Sight

When you come in through your front door, you want everything you see to be something that makes you happy. Clear away any clutter and mess (shoes, coats, bags) and replace any junk on your surfaces with family photos and mementos from trips away. 

Decorate your walls with beautiful artwork—this doesn’t have to be expensive; just buy prints and frames separately to save on framing costs.

Assess Your Lighting

Different areas in your home require different lighting. So, don’t make the mistake of the “uniform-lighting” approach, like other homeowners. Prioritising and organising your lighting will allow you to utilise the resources smartly. Focus on the basics – every room should have three lighting layers (accent, task and ambient). Browse Pinterest for creative design ideas and implement the same in your rooms.

Modern Bedroom Inspiration: 5 Ways to Transform Your Space

Thankfully the furniture has been ordered, and the bedding, as well, but NOW it’s the actual decor I’ll be working on. Since I’m transforming MY space, I thought today might be a good day to chat about that!
