Updating your interior style doesn't have to come with a high price tag. Just a few small but clever improvements can make your space feel renewed with very little impact to your pocketbook. Here are three ideas to get you on your way to maximising, adorning, or adding dimension to your space - or all three!
Add a mirror
It’s a tried and true interior decorator's trick to add wall mirrors to a small room to reflect light as well as the surrounding walls. The effect creates a visual illusion that makes the space feel brighter and much larger than it actually is, as the boundaries are no longer realistically defined. You can go frameless, or if you have a little bit of a budget to splash out, putting money into the frame is a great way to make a statement, whether your style is traditional, modern or eclectic.
Here's a twist: rather than adding, try removing pieces to freshen things up. Less can be more. If you've accumulated decorative items and your shelves and tables have become overrun with trinkets that aren't doing much more than collecting dust, edit your decor to the most significant pieces and let them stand out. If you can part with the rejects, sell them online or have a garage sale. If they still mean something to you, store them away and rotate in new pieces every couple of months to create your own mini collections to suit your current mood.
Give your '5th wall' a voice
A bare ceiling is an opportunity to give your space a unique look and feel. Adding a splash of overhead color creates a new dimension in the room. The colour you choose could be a tonal variation of your wall colour, or to create an effect that's bold, playful or dramatic, try a complementary shade to make the room pop. Want a look that screams modern? White walls with a black ceiling is super chic.
Take some quiet time for inspiration
Hanging out on the couch with a loved one on a regular basis is a great way to relax and reset, and that loved one might well be your beloved dog. Having that calming space away from your stresses will allow ideas to flow, and if you're conjuring up some good ones be sure to write them down. If you have settled in with your furry friend, you may want to take notice of their general health. Supplementation for dogs can be beneficial, just like it is with us in some cases. The Canna-Pet supplement has been used by dog owners for a few years now, often seeing improvement in health conditions that didn’t improve with traditional prescribed medicine.
The best interior decor ideas are the ones that speak to you and reflect your individual personality. Go for what you connect with, and is exciting and comforting to you. That's a nice combination to live with.
