Decor can carry a room – and when it comes to living in Sydney, chic and timeless statement pieces are almost a requirement. If you’re looking to spruce your space up a little, look no further than these stylish gems, essential items and finishing touches.
Rustle up a cozy reading spot
If you’re a bookworm without a designated cute and cozy reading space, what on earth are you doing? Keep it cozy, light-filled and useful too – there’s no such thing as wasted space! Granted, you might not have the space to dedicate to your bibliophilic habits, but you can always design your living room as a reading nook. Spruce it up with a chic armchair, day bed or vintage rug.
Add a stool to your bathroom
Love a good film in the bath? Save the splashes and invest in a funky bathroom stool. Not only will it make your bathroom feel more lux and lovely, it’s also a great addition to surface space and makes a home for that half-read book.
Install a bed canopy
One of the simplest ways to add a little oomph to your bedroom is to install a bed canopy. You can pick and choose your trimmings, but a plain and light white gauze will never go astray.
Hang some statement art
Nothing is bolder than a beautiful big piece of statement art. Choose a blank and simple wall to fill with a large piece by your favourite artist, or create a montage wall filled to the brim with tinier pieces. If you don’t know where to begin looking, check out how to choose the perfect piece of wall art here.
Add a vibrant wall clock
Take it back it time and install a colourful wall clock to spruce up your living room. Not only is it a handy addition for time-keeping, it’s also guaranteed to add a pop of colour and excitement to any room.
Place a large, bold lamp in a corner
If you’re after some zing for your inner-city sanctuary, opt for a bold floor lamp. A timeless and classic floor lamp adds luxe and architectural oomph, and would make the perfect partner for your cozy reading nook.
Add some colour to your lights
After a saucy atmosphere? Trade in one (or more) a classic light bulb for a colourful one instead. Best suited to hallways or entryways, a pop of colour is guaranteed to spruce your living situation up.
Invest in sweet floor cushions
For a grounding and cozy after-dinner nook, add some stylish floor cushions to the mix. Because what’s better than sitting on your couch? Sitting on a cloud of comfortable floor cushions, that’s what!
Take the legs off your marble coffee table
If you’re dedicated to the chic life and own a marble or glass topped table, rip the legs off and prop it up with some antique books or other items. If it feels inconvenient, it’s a sign you’re ready to invest in some otherworldly floor cushions.
