1) Look at the positioning of your furniture

“Can you move it around, rotate things, make more of a window or a view? Most people position their furniture around the edges of a room, but by bringing it ‘into the round’ you can actually create a more sociable space.”

2) Add character with cushions

“One of the most affordable off-the-shelf updates is to introduce some new scatter cushions to your bed or sofa. Whether you go for a beautiful, soft colour palette or something more striking it’s a chance to instantly add more personality.”

3) Go green with plants

“Fresh flowers are of course fabulous, but while they’re in shorter supply, artificial can work just as well, or pick some seasonal foliage or flowers from your garden and bring them inside. Having greenery in your home is a great way of capturing the mindful benefits of being outdoors.”

4) Dining in is the new eating out

“Make meals at home a bit more special by putting extra oomph into your table settings. A metre or two of lovely fabric ordered online can become a tablecloth, drag out your best china from the cupboards and get creative by accessorising the table with unusual and unexpected objects from around your home.”

5) Rearrange your shelves

“Organise the things you already have to make for a more interesting display on your walls. Books can be sorted into colour tones or by size; prop up pieces of art or prints and team together gathered objects from nature to create a sense of layering.”
