Keep that Aussie sunshine shining all day long, even when you’re indoors. Everyone needs – no, everyone deserves an interior that’ll spark some excitement into your life, even on dark, dreary, rainy summer days. And no, we aren’t talking about busting out your retirement savings for a massive home renovation project. Instead, we’re talking about using accent décor to revitalize your space – on a budget. And you guessed it! The Source Homewares has it all. Here are some of our favourite ways to revamp a space with vibrant vibes without breaking the bank.
Out with the Old
Old can be very good for your interior; it can tell a story and emit an ambiance that you simply can’t buy in a store. However, old can also be exhausting for your interior. There’s a fine line between good old and wow-that’s-so-old. So, take a look around your home and replace anything that has truly seen better days in your home. Something as simple as adding a new accent jug into your home can instantly revitalize the entire space.
Switch out the Standards
Standard vases; standard bowls; standard cutlery; standard – everything. Homes today are often filled with so many typical items. Plates are white, cupboards are white, kitchen containers are clear glass – and where’s the fun in that?
For a splash of vibrancy, switch out the “standard” or “typical” home décor items for fun and exciting alternatives. For example, trade in your glass cups for Clio glassware and even your cupboards will appear revitalized…. And they’re cupboards!
Add in Some Creative Shapes
Round vases, square frames, oval platers, oh my. Forget about adding standard shapes into your interior. While there’s nothing wrong with these items – we love them too – they can make a winter-worn interior seem basic, boring and dried up.
Opting for creative shapes in an excellent way to add dimension and individuality in your home. Vases, such as our Petite Vases, bring a bit of personality, elegance and vibrancy that is certain to push out the winter blues, especially if you fill them with fresh flowers.
Favour Fresh Flowers
The easiest way to liven up your home for summer is to fill it with the fresh aromas of the season. Flowers are not only an aesthetic addition to your home but they also smell good! And who doesn’t love a home some fresh Flannel flower?
But here’s the thing… If you’re going to be putting fresh flowers in your home this summer, you need some unique vases that are just as beautiful. There’s nothing worse than lovely petals losing their beautiful because of the vase they’re in.
Accentuate Simple Spaces
The fifth best way to liven up your home without breaking the bank is to accentuate the simple spaces within your interior. Think tabletops, dusty corners, unused spaces, staircase landings, etc. Adding something as little as an accent jug on the odd ins and outs of your interior can instantly transform that space into a revitalized area infused with summer vibes. So, if nothing else, stock up on accent jugs and put them in areas that are missing a little something-something or in places of the home you’ve never spent more than a couple of seconds looking at.
Now, all that’s left for you to do is head on over to The Source Homewares and get your summer shopping on! We offer creative aesthetics for your home at a price you won’t cringe at because, as we said, everyone deserves to have an interior that sparks some excitement!
