5 Tweaks To Elevate Your Interior & Exterior Design

The time is right for you to revamp the look of your home and add a new shine to it with a simple redecoration project. By incorporating the latest design trends and your personal touch, you can enhance your interior and make your house the talk of the town.

With the aim of helping you achieve this in no time, we have singled out our top easy-to-follow tips and tricks. Let’s take a look and get inspired.


1. Relaxed Patio chill zone

First things first, begin by investing in a complete makeover of your patio. The best thing about this part of the house is that you can use it as an amazing seating area. Make sure to opt for quality flooring such as flagstone or coloured brick which will inspire a very classy effect. You can further enhance the look by bringing out cushy rattan or teak armchairs. Additionally, with wrought iron and eucalyptus wood furniture you can make the space look even more luxurious. One other option you could go for would be to construct a patio bar where you can mix your guests’ drinks on the spot. Finally, feel free to build a fire pit so that you and your friends can stay warm in the evening while sharing your stories.


2. Eclectic living room design

When it comes to the living room, you should strive for an eclectic look and combine traditional and modern elements for a unique design. For instance, start by inviting in an industrial style by opting for a bare brick accent wall. If you like this idea, you can complement this arrangement with a stylish wooden console table and evoke a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

However, don’t hesitate to break the monotony of this minimalistic concept by hanging abstract paintings without frames for a gorgeous artistic touch that will rejuvenate your interior.

As far as traditional elements are concerned, be sure to go for statement light pieces such as rustic flush fixtures or an over-the-top chandelier. You should match this idea with a lovely retro birch wood loveseat and cosy cushions for an elegant living room décor.

3. New age bathroom décor

This season, it’s also important to spruce up your bathroom and enhance your wellness experience. For example, a simple way to start off would be to add more depth by installing geometric tiles which will easily open up the space. These tiles come in a variety of colour and style making them a great customization feature. Most importantly, if you truly want to express your bold side, make sure to go for impressive decorative concrete for your floors and walls. This material is not only popular for being extremely durable, but it will add a raw beauty to this area in your home as well. Lastly, you can brighten up the room with chic wall sconces and a mirror wall for a timeless look.

4. Bedroom colour scheme

Another important step would be to change your bedroom colour scheme so as to add more fervour to the décor. For instance, you can go for a tone-on-tone approach by blending in similar shades such as Salmon for the walls and Persian red for the carpet. Also, you should focus on combining these features with Terra cotta throw pillows and blankets along with crimson bedding for a passionate arrangement that will surely spice things up. On the other hand, if you want to achieve a more calming look, try applying neutral pastel tones instead. A perfect example of this would be to opt for a mixture of earthy-toned accessories like pastel beige curtains, small dishes and trays in a harvest gold nuance and a bedroom Barcelona chair with ochre upholstery.

5. Bring in a new life with greenery

Last but not least, don’t forget to bring your interior to life with rejuvenating plants and flowers. These will not only add a lot of charm to your living space, but can effectively cleanse the air of pollutants and restore balance to the energy of the interior. This can be achieved with Spider plants in hanging pots that can grow cute little blossoms which evoke an exotic feel in any room of the house. Similarly, Golden mums serve well as formaldehyde and ammonia eliminators. Keep in mind, plants could also help improve your wellbeing. Great examples for this are Lavender, Valerian and Peace Lilies which possess soothing healing capabilities that will allow you to have uninterrupted and relaxing sleep. You can get the similar effect with mint, Aloe Vera and chamomile wreaths or garlands.

As you can see, it doesn’t take much effort to turn a mundane interior into a stunning oasis of peace and glamour. All you need to do is incorporate the latest trends, experiment with colours and styles and add your personal touch for a one-of-a-kind design that will sweep everyone off their feet. Good luck on your remodelling project.
