Pops of colour

Add a splash of your favourite colour to each room to express your uniqueness and bring a smile to your face every time you step inside. Whether you decide to go all out and paint a whole feature wall, make a statement through a colourful piece of furniture, or simply add colour (and texture) through soft home furnishings such as pillows and throws – it’s totally up to you. Another benefit of adding pops of your favourite colour in every room is that it will tie your interior style together nicely.

Eclectic artwork

Pick out artwork that you truly love and that captures your imagination. If you aren’t sure where to start, you could try hunting down prints of holiday destinations you’ve visited, looking for motivational quotes that mean something to you, or even simply selecting colours that you like. There really are no limitations when it comes to artwork as there is only one opinion that matters; yours! I always choose affordable artwork and then I tend to swap prints around depending on the season and my mood. In my opinion there is nothing more personal than a constantly evolving gallery wall.

Theme of you

Rather than picking an ‘on trend’ style for a particular room, why not let the theme be ‘you’? For example, if you love the industrial Scandi vibe but also want to feel cosy, there’s no reason why you can’t combine the two looks together. Instead of clashing they will blend well together because they represent the true you. Merge styles and let the inner self take control during the decorating process.

Add memorabilia

Display sentimental items on shelves and side tables. Mix and match your favourite books, personal photographs and ornaments with plants, candles and vases for a curated look. When you go on holiday why not buy a piece of traditional crockery from every destination to add some individuality to your kitchen cupboards? These are always great conversation starters when guests come round because you will be able to talk about your experience in that country.

Beautiful botanicals

Whether blooming bouquets or green plants are your style, they are an easy way to stamp your personality into your home. How you display your botanicals is just as important and personal as the plant itself. Try creating a mini terrarium or crafting your own hanging basket to have your own handiwork on show.

Upcycle furniture

Upcycling furniture is an ideal way of working individuality into your home as it means there will be nothing else like it. You could reupholster an old family armchair with a statement print to jazz up a room or add bespoke handles to your drawers and wardrobe for a truly individual look.
