Keep reading for our best tips to update and refresh your space for the New Year…


Add a New Pattern or Texture 

One of the simplest ways to revitalise a room is by introducing new patterns or textures. This can be easily achieved with items like pillows, throws, or area rugs. By choosing patterns that complement your existing decor, you can add a dynamic element to your room without overwhelming it. Textures also play a crucial role in creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere. Consider new fabrics for pillows and throws to add a touch of comfort and warmth to your living space.

The Unboxed Jute Rug by Double is the perfect way to execute this, showcasing a beautiful interplay between geometry and symmetry with its contrasting striped design. Durable and versatile, its woven jute texture offers another element of interest that is both stain-resistant and elegant.


Update Your Artworks

Art has the power to transform a room, acting as a focal point or a subtle enhancement to your existing decor. The new year is the perfect time to update the art in your home. Simply rearranging your current artwork or framing new prints will have a significant on the ambience of your space. Consider the themes and colours that resonate with your personal style and choose art that reflects the mood you want to cultivate.

Contemporary by design, the Red Chair Print is a statement piece that will make a strong design impact in any space. The red-striped motif will bring an energetic vibe to any home, with organic line patterns flowing throughout the design to create artistic interest and visual intrigue.



Change Your Lighting

Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the mood of a room. As we step into the new year, consider changing your lighting to create a more relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Mood lighting, such as soft lampshades, dimmer switches, and strategically placed floor lamps, can significantly enhance the ambience of a room. Avoid relying solely on overhead lights; they often create a harsh and unflattering environment. Instead, use multiple light sources to create a warm, inviting glow.

Introduce a New Accent Piece

Adding a new accent piece can dramatically change the look and feel of a room. This could be a statement chair in your living room, a unique ottoman, or a striking mirror in the hallway. These pieces not only serve a functional purpose but also add a new dimension to your room's aesthetic. When selecting an accent piece, consider how it complements your current furnishings and whether it ties in with the overall theme of your room.
