Living room makeover on a budget

A quick living room makeover for you today with Next. The more I browse on their website the more surprised I am about their product range. From fashion to home they are definitely keeping on trends. But beware in the home section you have to be very careful and not to get strapped into this matchy-matchy look. They give you suggestion what goes with what but in the end you would end up with their catalogue staged interior.

Which obviously is no good. No personality whatsoever. And who would want their home to look like that? So I came up with some key pieces which you can use in your home to quickly refresh your living room.

Next living room makeover

From the top: rug / mirror / table lamp / blue candles / sideboard / sofa / champagne cushion / green cushion / vase / coffee table

I have to show you these in more detail starting with the coffee table which is just bang on trend! Mirrored top and antique brass. Now that’s a marriage made in heaven.

 Next is this gorgeous sideboard..


And the mirror. Its’ absolutely timeless.


 Don’t be afraid of mixing metals as well as patterns, textures and colours. Give your home eclectic feel, show your personality and make your space welcoming and unique. The devil is in the details, as they say. Like this candle with very subtle but geometric pattern..


When you’re choosing cushions and you rather go for plain colour, look at the texture of the material. Look for textures that are different from what you already have – smooth, rough, heavy, light. And no silk or satin ones! They look too cheap.


So what do you think? Let me know. Are you planning to give your living room a quick makeover? If you’re stuck and don’t know where to start give me a call or drop me an email. I’m happy to help.
