Dress those windows!

ABOUT a decade ago, the interior-design fashion was to match everything in the bedroom, to make it look very “designed”. This included the bedspreads, curtains, and, quite often, a set of toning plastic flowers, as well. Apologies to anyone who still has these items still in their property!

Let someone else lend you a hand!

SOMETIMES, buying an apartment at a cheaper price, because it needs work doing, can be a great investment.

Time for a make-over

THE word make-over was initially meant to describe a radical change in a person’s appearance. However, it’s not just one’s own physique that can get a makeover, your interior can, too! The famous phrase “five-minute make-over” might be slightly too optimistic to expect for your interior, although, with the right help and preparations,  massive changes […]

Filling wall space…

THIS part of decorating can be tricky, but there are plenty of options available. Whatever you choose, whether it’s something very personal, telling your life story, or selected because it looks good and goes with the décor, it has to be something you love looking at, day in, day out. With so many available types […]
