Give your home (and your mood) a new-season boost with our pick of quick updates that make a real difference to your decor
Make yourself comfortable
Cushions are one of the easiest ways to change up your interiors without having a whole-room revamp. For maximum impact, choose an eye-catching colour or pattern to shake up your scheme: try bold shades or geometric prints that pop out and add instant interest to your living space. Fresh blues and greens will give your home a spring-like feel – just the thing to lighten your spirits on dark winter days.
Add a touch of glass
Use a standout vase to create a versatile, eye-catching display that will transform a windowsill or table top. Coloured glass and sculptural shapes will draw the eye and make your vase a feature in its own right and a focal point for your room. Switch things up any time you like by adding flowers or foliage in different heights and shades.
Achieve bedroom bliss
New bed linen can change the look and colour scheme of your whole room, no redecorating needed. Try one of our striking prints for a quick update that'll help to give you a fresh-start feel in the mornings.
Make drinks a special occasion
Smarten up evening drinks with great-looking glassware. Be the host with the most and invite friends round for G&Ts served in this stylish set of gin glasses, or enjoy a refreshing pre-dinner cocktail (or mocktail) in an elegant martini glass.
Mix up mealtimes
Set the scene for memorable meals with a new take on tableware – simply choose one or two new pieces to mix in with what you currently have. Adding texture and colour to a plain crockery set with new side plates or serveware can have real impact. Choose pieces you love and keep them on show – stacked or propped on open shelves – for an update that's practical and looks great too.
