Fun Ways To Spruce Up Your Home Decor

Fun Ways To Spruce Up Your Home Decor

***Collaborative post***

Looking to make a few changes to your home this summer? Summer is the ideal time to refresh your home – and with the warm weather and longer days comes the perfect opportunity to spruce up your living space. 

Today we want to talk about some super simple ways that you can spruce up your home decor and put those much-needed finishing touches onto your home interiors this week. 

Buy items from a set theme 

When you want to make a positive change to your home and its style, the easiest thing you can do is buy some items from the same style collection. For example, head to Target this week and look at the homeware section and pick out items that follow the same theme, color scheme, and design. By bringing multiple items of the same theme into your home you will encompass the room and elevate your design to the next level. This is such an easy way to make your home look more put together and styled without spending too much time. 

Try metal art prints 

One way to elevate your home decor this month is by bringing some brand new art to the home. But instead of going for the classic frames or canvases – why not try Chromaluxe metal prints? Metal prints are a type of artwork that can be classy and fun, and they are hung on magnets meaning less mess for you when putting them up. You can find metal prints in all sorts of styles and you can even get your own photos printed on these too. 

Paint your own picture frames 

If you want to quickly spruce up your home decor and don’t have a lot of money to work with try repainting your photo frames. Do you have a lot of wooden and plastic frames around the house that look dull and boring? No more! Order some small sample pots of paint in bright colours, and use these to brighten up your photo frames and give them a whole new lease of life. This won’t cost much at all and it will instantly lift your wall art, mantelpiece, or bookcase.

Invest in 3D wall art 

One thing you can consider if you have a home that is large in size is a 3D piece of wall art such as a metal or wooden display. There are some stunning 3D pieces out there to choose from and you can create a fun and unique feature in your home in no time at all. It will be a good way to fill a blank wall space and bring some much-needed colour and texture to your home. 

Go bigger 

Go big or go home. Do you have a lot of small ornaments and features on your shelves right now? Get rid of them. Smaller items can clog up a space and make it look cluttered. Instead, choose 3-5 bigger ornaments or features and fill your shelves with these instead. It will not only look more clean and put together but it will be much easier to clean!

Our Bucket List For 2016

As we have now waved goodbye to 2015 and have already welcomed 2016, our plans for 2016 have already started to be made. We have some exciting times ahead and thought we’d make a bucket list and see how we do. Here is our bucket list for 2016.

Fingers crossed we manage to complete it.

  • Bedroom makeovers are desperately needed.
  • Plan lots of fun camping trips in the UK.
  • Hopefully buy our house…..fingers crossed, exciting times.
  • Start my Massage training now I finally have the all clear from my shoulder damage caused by my car accident. I hope to start my mobile  massage business asap now I’ve been given the all clear…..eeek exciting!
  • Grow our social media.
  • Attend blog conferences and meet other bloggers.
  • Enjoy a nice spa day and just relax for a day….bliss!
  • Celebrate Lee’s 16th birthday in Lee style.
  • Visit Barcelona football stadium. This is a wish Lee has had for a while now and we hope to make it happen this year for him.
  • Save really hard for a more relaxed Christmas. We will be making Christmas easier by following our money-saving plan the best we can.
