If your home is feeling a little ‘blah’, here are five easy ways to update your interiors from the comfort of your couch
When a home looks tired, it can be pretty uninspiring. It may start to feel like a place that no longer reflects your personality and makes you feel like you don’t want to spend much time there.
While painting the walls and ripping up the carpet is no doubt an effective way to change up the look of your place, you don’t need to go to such lengths – especially if your budget doesn’t allow it. All you need to do in order to transform the look and feel of your home is to update existing features and add a few brand new ones into the mix. Right now Temple & Webster are offering all first-time shoppers a $15 credit. To take advantage of the offer you just need to sign up here!
Check out five of our favourite picks for the home:
A touch of leather
Nothing gives your décor an edge like the addition of leather accents. Cool and chic, tan-coloured leather manages to provide a warm touch that looks stylish and sophisticated. The Tan Leather Cushion Cover from Temple & Webster will complement any existing furnishings and ‘toughen up’ even the softest of sofas.
Got a few modern items in your home? Why not mix things up with a side table in a different finish? The Kiss Cuddle Side Table from Temple & Webster is a 100 per cent handmade wooden table that’s perfect to add to any living space, whether you’ve chosen to decorate with sleek metals or earthy woods. The practical side table is strong and durable, with a crisscross stand and smooth finish.
Something pretty for your guests
Everything old is new again – at least that’s what your guests will think if your home features charming items that looks as though they’ve been passed down through generations. The quaint Sugar Bowl and Spoon Sets from Temple & Webster feature imprints of ferns, grasses, leaves, and flowers on delicate hand-pressed dishes and are the perfect, charming additions to any home.
Looking to inject some fresh colour into your lounge room? Interesting cushions are just the way to go, and we don’t just mean interesting in colour. The Blue Waves Cushion from Temple & Webster is 100 per cent handmade with a mix of merino wool, mulberry silk, flax, mohair and alpaca. It’s just about the coolest (and most comfortable) cushion you could ever hope to own and will instantly update any room.
An earthy feel
Bring your home closer to nature with interesting touches that will set your décor apart from your friends’ homes. Made entirely of llama fibre, these beautiful llama vessels from Temple & Webster have a natural look and are ideal for housing plants, flowers, shells, or anything else from the earth. Hand-felted, each llama vessel is one of a kind and will be thicker and thinner in places, adding to its earthy, rustic charm.
