external2-edit

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
