Now we’ve settled into the new year, many of us are looking for ways to refresh and renew various aspects of our lives. One exciting and fulfilling way of doing this is by giving your home a makeover. Whether you’ve just moved into a new place or you’re eager to revamp your current abode, decorating and personalising your space can be a rewarding and creative process. In this blog post, we’ll explore ideas and inspiration for transforming your home, covering interior design, organisation, and personalisation, along with some handy DIY tips and tricks!


Adding Elements of You Into Your Interior Design


Start by choosing a colour pallet that reflects your character and preferences. Consider incorporating trendy colours for the year or opt for timeless hues that bring a sense of tranquillity or energy to your space. Examples of some colours you can use like grey, which can be timeless and will complement with so many colours. Or you have green which can instigate creativity and calmness in the space. For a little hack, you can use colour swatches to see what colours inspire you the most!

Experiment with different furniture layouts to maximize both functionality and aesthetics. Create cosy conversation areas, and don’t be afraid to mix and match furniture styles for a personalised touch.


You could even look into investing in a few standout pieces that can become focal points in your rooms. This could be a vibrant rug, a unique piece of art, or a stylish piece of furniture that adds character to the space.


Declutter Your Space, Declutter Your Mind


Think of it as a clean slate, a blank canvas, get rid of items you no longer need and organise your belongings to create a more streamlined and stress-free environment.


Are there any items that have no use to you anymore? You can sort through your belongings and use sites such as ‘Vinted’ or ‘eBay’, where you can sell your items and get some extra money to invest in your home projects!


When you’ve decluttered through your belongings, you could start by looking into investing in stylish storage solutions to keep your space organised. Utilise baskets, shelves, and multi-functional used items within easy reach. This not only adds a personal touch but also promotes an organised and accessible space.


You could even consider incorporating open shelving in your kitchen or living room to showcase your favourite items and keep frequently used items within easy reach. This not only adds a personal touch but also promotes an organised and accessible space.


Personalisation, Make it Yours


It’s your space, so make it how you want it to be! Think of how you want to feel when you enter your home. Create a gallery wall with a mix of framed photos, artwork, and memorabilia. This is a fantastic way to tell your story and infuse your personality into the space. Get experimental with different frame styles and colours. You can even add your works of art to the wall.

This then leads to the next point of DIY projects. Create customised décor pieces like throw pillows, create your own artwork or revamp old furniture with a fresh coat of paint for a unique and bespoke look.


Designate a corner or shelf for displaying sentimental items like travel souvenirs, family heirlooms, or handmade gifts. These personal touches will make your home truly yours.

From choosing the right colour palette to incorporating DIY elements, there are endless possibilities to make your home a reflection of your personality. So, roll up your sleeves, gather inspiration, and let your creativity flow as you transform your living space into a haven of comfort and style. Happy decorating!
