Spring is just around the corner and the perfect time to spruce up your home, so to help inspire your creative flair I’ve put together a neutral look based on my last blog all for under £500.
The look I’ve put together below is based on fresh neutral hues co-ordinated with foliage wallpaper and natural beech wood. A neutral colour palette of white, creams and soft greys works beautifully with splashes of blacks or browns. A simple and inexpensive scheme like this is perfect base for adding bolder pieces of furniture or colour at a later date.
When creating your own look for around £500 think carefully about the end result you want for your room, creating a moodboard helps to visualise the overall look before you buy, so can stop you from making any expensive mistakes.
Choosing paint over wallpaper is a more cost effective solution, however if you do fall in fall in love with a particular design, try to keep to one wall or alcoves as any more and the look may be too overpowering and also costly.
You can also save money by upcycling, which has become immensely popular as people do not want to spend hundreds on vintage or one of pieces so take to creating their own. If you have a worn out piece of furniture that you can’t bear to part with you find tutorials on upcycling such as sites like Youtube.
If you don’t have the time to update your furniture then buying new pieces isn’t always a costly solution. It’s a lot easier to find exciting and stylish pieces today on the high street and in the style of expensive designer ones.
