Transforming any space into a chic spot you want to spend time in doesn’t have to be an overwhelming endeavour. Whether you’re a free-spirited bohemian at heart or just looking to add a touch of personality to your home, we’ve partnered with Carpet Court to give you some simple tips that will have you well on your way to living your design dream!

Who doesn’t want their home to feel like a beautiful island villa or have that chic 70s Palm Springs energy we saw in Daisy Jones & the Six? While overhauling your entire home might feel like a mission, there are several easy things you can do to turn any space into a calm, cool oasis and start bringing the good vibes in. 

  1. Let the Light in

Natural light can make a world of difference in any living space. Letting the sun flood in can really brighten up a room and make it feel bigger, and there are plenty of ways to do it no matter what’s hiding outside your window. 

Sheer curtains are a great option for when you need privacy but don’t want to lose the light, plus they provide a beautiful, soft, focal point. Carpet Court has an incredible range of sheers to match any room and they’ll let that lovely light in. Highlight it further with strategically placed mirrors to bounce the light around the room and you’ll feel like you’re on holiday 24/7.

  1. Bring the Jungle to You

Now that you’ve got a lovely bright space, you can make it feel even more tranquil and chic with the introduction of indoor plants. There is such a wide range of plants on the market, even those among us who aren’t blessed with a green thumb can find something that suits our lifestyle. Plants bring different colours and textures and will play beautifully with your new chic sheer curtains. Have we just booked a trip to Bali? No, we’re just in your living room. Bliss. 

  1. Play With Textures

Remember how our plants and our sheer curtains are elevating the space with lovely colours and textures? Now it’s time to ramp that up with even more texture. If you’re going for that boho chic energy in your space, leaning towards natural textures and colours will keep the design grounded. Think lovely wicker furniture, wooden shelving, jewel-toned velvet accent cushions. 

If you’re working on a budget, spend your money wisely. Purchase accent pieces to upcycle your current furniture, like cushions and throws, and pieces that transform a room like sheer linen look curtains and rugs, to get the most bang for your buck.

  1. Curate a Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are a fantastic way to showcase your personal style and interests. Whether it’s a collection of art prints, photographs, or even vinyl records, curating a gallery wall adds visual interest and personality to your home. Play with different frame styles, sizes, and arrangements to create a captivating display that reflects your unique taste.

Gallery walls are a great option for those on a budget or renters – you don’t need to spend a bomb on high-end artwork to get the impact you want. Collecting postcards, scouring second hand stores and even taking pages from magazines are all easy ways to start your art collection. Pair them with a pack of easy to remove sticky strips and you’re well on your way. 

  1. Bigger Isn’t Always Better

We haven’t all been blessed with cathedral ceilings and cavernous rooms, but some smart design can make your home feel like that. Be smart about how you use colour, through accent pieces, rather than overwhelming the space with a lot of different colours that confuse the eye. When you’re picking core pieces for your small space, go neutral. Soft neutral Carpet Court sheers won’t close off a window or door, and the way they let light into your space will make it instantly feel bigger. Matching them to your walls and bigger furniture pieces will help the room feel big and airy, and you can make it your own through statement pieces like artwork, furnishings and vases. 

  1. Make It Yours 

We’ve gone through a lot of classic design tips, but the most important one is to make a space yours! If you’re left scratching your head when you think about what design you like, seek some inspo. There are so many Instagram accounts dedicated to design inspo, there’s Pinterest, or look at how the brands you like display their own furnishings. What makes a space really special is what you bring to it, and it’s what will set your space apart. 

Whether it’s through the artwork you choose, the colours you use or just the energy you bring to the space, you want a room to make you feel comfortable at the end of the day. 

By incorporating these interior design tips, you can elevate the look and feel of your home, creating a space that is both visually stunning and reflective of your personal style.

So go ahead, let your creativity flow and give these tips a try. Your space will thank you for it!
