Standing lamps are perfect for throwing light into dark corners of your home. The light itself can become a statement piece in its own right. I loved this standing lamp from BHS (£135), it has that movie light feel about it and would look great in my own house actually…
You might be renting somewhere that comes furnished or you might have bought a plain sofa for your house that needs an added bit of colour. This yellow cushion from Next (£16) would be a welcome addition to any living room. Adding a little bit of colour through some bright cushions is a great way to add some personality to your room, without having to commit to a brightly coloured wall.
Ever find yourself with a blank wall and unsure what to do with it? You might not want to add something too fussy as this can make the room look smaller. Adding a mirror can actually make the room look bigger, reflecting light and giving the illusion of space. I thought this hanging mirror from Sainsbury’s (£24) was the perfect mix of retro and modern, I couldn’t believe the price either!
When you decorate a room plants are often an after thought but they do bring the room together. Buying real plants can become extremely expensive, so you maybe would only buy a couple. Luckily there are some great fake alternatives. I loved this little pot of succulents from Homesense (£3.99). As they are so inexpensive you could purchase a fair few and add them to a floating shelf for an instant focal point.
