Whether you’ve been living in the property for five minutes or five decades, every home needs an upgrade from time to time. For most homeowners, the consumption of time and money makes this a far less attractive prospect. It needn’t fill you with horror, though, not when there are so many quick and easy projects to consider.
If you’ve ever watched a sitcom where the backdrop is NYC (and, let’s be honest, of course you have), then you’ll have noticed a trend: every single one of them features roommates. It’s part and parcel of big city life because, whether you call the Big Apple home or any other city, sharing a space is pretty much the only way you can afford the rent.
We spend a lot of time making sure that our homes “look the part.” We spend many hours deciding what colours to paint the walls, figuring out the right style, and making sure it has everything it needs to be a functional property. Yet while functionality is important, there’s something else that your home needs to be, too: fun! After all, the novelty of how your home looks will wear off pretty quickly, but the fun? That’ll last forever! Below, we take a look at five ways you can up the fun factor in your house.
Ironically, considering the number of times you look out of them (and your nosey neighbours look in), the windows are the most overlooked aspects of the home. While many people focus on the latest trends in home decor, little thought is put into the practicality and aesthetics of the window. Not only do they supply natural light and warmth into the home, but they also increase kerb appeal and can complement the interior design of each room in the house. So, we are here to shed a little light of our own, with a few handy pointers in how to pick the perfect windows.

We’ve all heard of florals for spring, right? Well, I’m coining the term ‘Foliage for Fall’ as we talk about the ways to introduce this year’s hottest interiors trend for botanical prints into your homes. It’s certainly a bold look, but don’t panic, there’s a way for everyone to incorporate this trend into their schemes.
Our friends and family are scattered all over the world and as such we have visitors staying at our house quite often. We love having houseguests and as much as it can get a little bit hectic sometimes the amount of fun we have completely makes up for it.
