How to Spruce Up Plain Interiors
Home Upgrade Guide
If you feel like sprucing up your interiors consier the most important soft furnishings – your rugs, carpets, curtains, bed sheets or cushions. Fixing these might be cheaper than a new sofa or a kitchen makeover! Do you want to have a plain white or vibrant colors? Do colors have to match or contrast?
Choosing Colors for your Home
Think of what colors you like, but realistically consider what furniture you already have. There are a few tricks, but a well-placed large mirror and mostly light-colored surfaces can make a space feel larger.
Bringing Life to an Interior
Of course the best way to do this is have a good basic design, ideally by an architect if new-build. But the next thing is to make it real, a lived-in warm-hearted space will work better than some cold staged interior. Use a generous amount of plants and flowers, and add warmth via simple decoration whether it be paintings on the wall or carefully selected objects, from sculptures to momentoes.

The houses, with their barrel-vaulted profile, are semi-submerged in order to mitigate visual impact. On the East side, where the boundary is closest to the existing terrace of houses, the first floor is also set back, creating an extensive sedum roof, which provides additional light and an attractive outlook between the two structures.
