It’s a new year and most of us are trying to follow the trend of a “new year, new me” so what better way to start the year than to change up the house a little by using everything that is already at your disposal. (with possibly adding some minor things here and there which you can get from a Mr Price home)
Start February #Afresh
It takes just a few simple steps to bring life and fresh energy into your so be ready for a little transformation.
Add some fruit to your decoration
It seems a bit weird, but this adds such a visual and textural element to a space. Place a collection of citrus fruits in large glass jars, vases or bowls for instant and natural colour. Not only will it give an area some ‘life” but this will also remind you to stay and eat healthier – so now you can work on your new year’s resolution and add some nutrients to your diet.
Remember: As the seasons change, swap the citrus out for apples and pumpkins too. Mr Price always has inexpensive yet simple and classy Jars, vases & bowls – just don’t get carried away with all that they have to offer.
Nature is beautiful and creates a tranquil atmosphere
Bring the outside in with freshly cut flowers, branches, river rocks, pinecones and whatever natural, organic ingredients you can find. You can add these to jars, tall glasses and even platters. This gives you and the family some time to be creative – you can even spray paint some of the harder elements and start a new colour theme. Not only does it bring in better energy, but it gives your home an edge with class.
Add some personality with Personal Memories
We live in an age where pictures are constantly being taken, from selfies, to family events – even our furry babies! You could dust off those old photographs and display them proudly. Hang them on your prominent walls – in living rooms, bedrooms and hallways.
Or you could create your own gallery with some of your funniest and most favourite memories from your phone. This may also help remind you of how blessed you are to have such loving people in your life.
Bring out the Tupperware, containers and collections
Whether you’re an avid collector or simply have lovely and unique items, it makes no sense to keep them tucked away. Bring out the decorative dishes, bowls, pitchers, the muffin tins and rolling pins (whatever it is that you collect). Hang them together or group them up too.
i.e Instead of having candle holders scattered, place them together on a table – this may also help you find it all much easier when load shedding hits or you could go have some fun shopping for some new decorations.
Rearrange your furniture
This is one is the most simple and effective ways to feel like a brand-new person in a brand new home.
You’ll be amazed at how different your space looks by simply moving a couch, a table, dresser or your bed. Your room may even end up feeling a little larger. It will certainly feel fresher and newer. Once that’s done, get yourself a game of 30 seconds, order some pizza and spend some time with your loved ones.
Remember, we always have your back, from advice to taking care of your property.
