Today – Jazz up a Room on a Budget
There are a few key, simple things you can do to really jazz up a room in your home without spending a fortune.
I am a big lover of clocks, I have my grandfather’s old British rail clock for all his long years of service. In my kitchen I have a clock from Wilkinsons that I like very much. It has a vintage French feel to it and sets the tone for the whole room. For just £12 this little clock had a big impact.
Over at funky flash sales site Hush Hush I found this gorgeous green clock which is such a wonderful colour and iconic design it would really light up a room. I think this would be a great clock for a playroom with its bold lettering and brightness. It costs £31
Art came be very samey samey or it can be striking, personal, meaningful and that can make all the difference. Good art can change a whole room and by good I don’t mean it has to be a Van Gogh or expensive I mean good as in something you have really thought about and really adore. I love this metal picture of a red beetle and think it would wow above the red sofas in my lounge and add a really fun quirky touch. It costs £39 and is also available from Hush Hush
This gorgeous beach hut canvas from Next would look amazing in a bathroom and at only £20 would be a great feature. It reminds me of Paignton in Devon
A grea tlight is a fabulous feature that can really tranform a room . This is seriously funky! HushHush £25
or how about this for an elegant look . £20 from Habitat.
The above items are all statement pieces that add a definite feel to a room and would really impact it.
It doesn’t have to be expensive to to jazz up a room you just have to really take a good luck around and find out what works for you (and maybe be a little bit brave?)
