The apartment comprises of two spacious bedrooms, one double and one single, both with original floorboards and large windows that let light flood in. They also benefit from electric heaters to keep the rooms nice and warm in the winter months!

Decor tips

  • Make bare floorboards cosy with lots of rugs
  • Old buildings can get a little chilly, so invest in some draught excluders
  • Instead of turning the heating on when it gets cooler, throw on loads of blankets!
  • To keep a clutter free home and make more space, opt for multi-purpose and fold away furniture
  • Most people would kill for stunning exposed brick features, make the most of these with cool vintage decor to match
  • Make the exposed brick wall a feature of the room and don’t over decorate itlounge5

Autumn Home Decor on a Budget!

Autumn Home Decor on a Budget!

Summer is officially over and the weather is getting cooler; time to make your home warm and cosy for the autumn/winter months ahead. But what if you don’t have loads of money to spare for a revamp? Don’t despair, as our cheap tips and tricks to make your home a cosy haven won’t break your budget!

#1 Key colours

autumn16

Warm hues are perfect for Autumn – pumpkin, maple, espresso, mustard, terracotta, chocolate, wine red, burnt orange, cinnamon and amber. A neutral backdrop is the perfect setting for these rich colours, ideal for rented homes you can’t paint!

#2 Get cosy

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Adorn your home with an array of blankets, cushions and rugs to keep you and your home warm whilst you wait until the last possible minute to turn your heating on! They’re not only practical, they look pretty too! Purchase soft and fluffy ones for extra comfort, there’s loads available for great prices on the high street! And make sure you swap to a thicker duvet too.

#3 Fall in love with nature

autumn7

Autumn calls for natural details; trying adding a few wooden pieces to your home, turn crisp autumn leaves that have fallen into pretty decorations, and add some branches or even have a small tree in your living area. Also organised your belongings with wicker baskets as a perfect symbol for the harvest.

#4 Be creative

autumn11

Create your own centre piece or vase decoration using acorns, pinecones, branches and ornamental pumpkins decorated with glitter, metallic paint or pretty patterns. Also introduce rustic details, vintage pieces and distressed textures.

#5 Mood lighting

autumn10

As the days get darker, invest in some lamps to create more light; ones with a dimmer switch and warmer lighting are perfect to create a cosy mood, as are pretty fairy lights for a romantic feel.

#6 Autumnal scents

autumn2

As well as the visual aspects, create an autumn smell within your home. You can do this with scented candles, incense, oil diffusers, scent sticks and potpourri. You could even try a simmer pot of hot water filled with cinnamon, orange peel, cloves and bay leaves.

#7 Snuggle up

autumn15

Create a simple but cosy nook in your home – it doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, just a little corner where you can snuggle up away from the cold. For even more cosiness, create a canopy bed; it’ll keep out the chill while you sleep and make you feel like you’re in your own cosy cocoon.

#8 Prepare your pumpkins

autumn12

Fake ornamental pumpkins are perfect to last all autumn. But if you want real ones, there are a few things you can do to preserve them: once carved, rinse out, add 3 teaspoons of bleach to 3 gallons of water, then dunk the pumpkin in for 2 minutes, and let air dry outside. You can also use special pumpkin spray, or petroleum jelly/vegetable oil to keep them moist.

 

Decorating on a budget!

Decorating on a budget!

Decorating your home is one of those tasks that often gets left behind and forgotten due to other priorities demanding your attention, and money! But it IS possible to decorate your home on a budget, just read our list of tips!Decor4

You don’t have to buy all the most expensive decorations; look through second-hand shops, vintage stores and independent boutiques for cheaper and unique items. High street budget stores have also started to do much more stylish and better quality home decor, such as Primark, Wilko and Home Bargains. You can also find new furniture cheap at scrapyards and give them a makeover, or even auction houses.

If you’re just wanting to give your home an upgrade, there’s no need to be buying big, expensive pieces of furniture. Update your home with accessories such as cushions, throws and rugs which are much cheaper. And if you’re furniture is in a good condition but you’re just a little bored of it, give it a revamp with some paint or new upholsteryDecor5! Upcycling old items and repurposing furniture is a great way to make use of something old to decorate your home.

Some decorating can even be done for free! Take a look at what you already have and see if anything can be changed around; simply rearranging things in a room can give it a new lease of life! Also try going through all your old stuff, you never know what you might find in the depths of your storage that can be brought back out. And instead of keeping your belongings hidden behind cupboards, have them out on display as decorations; you could do this with mugs, books or pretty perfume bottles.

Decor3Getting creative can also be a great way to decorate your home on a budget. Instead of buying pictures or artwork to hang up, cut eye-catching pictures out of magazines and put them up using colour Washi tape (a great idea for not leaving marks in a rental home). Personal touches in your home are the best kind; print a load of photos of family and friends and create a collage with them. Use your imagination and pretty much anything can be turned into decor; used jam jars, cereal boxes, wooden crates, the list is endless! Try using nature as well; we’re not saying go steal flowers from someones garden, but pick up things such as shells from the beach, fallen leaves and branches, flowers, acorns and pine cones, which can make great decorations for your home.

If you do have a bit of money to spend, there are budget-friendly items you can buy to decorate your home. Mirrors create dimension in your home as well as acting as a decoration and making your space look even bigger. Big, patterned wall canvases are a great affordable way to brighten up your walls, especially living in a rented home. Try switching out your lamp shade Decor2covers to something a little brighter, and hang up strings of fairy lights for a warmer, more romantic feel. Buying potted plants for your home is also a great idea as they are cheap, add life to your home, and are even good for your health as they purify the air and make us feel happier!
