New Year’s is rife with inspiration for fresh fixes and stylish updates for the home. It is the perfect time to look back in gratitude, and to set goals for moving forward. The simple act of streamlining your space by elevating it with clever touches promises to leave you feeling refreshed and inspired. Here are my favourite ways to channel a confident new vibe now.
Focus on what works, and lose what doesn’t. I am a strong proponent of a biannual cleanse. Every few months I set aside time to edit my studio and home, discarding anything that is not absolutely essential. Organisation is the key to success. Extraneous items that do not add value or have a clear purpose must go. A well-curated abode is a stress-free zone.
If there is something you use every day, splurging on a super-luxe version feels decadent and special. Look to chic barware, elevated china patterns or ultra-plush towels to give your home that extra boost of luxury and refinement.
Go big with statement wallpaper or curtains, or focus on small embellishments in the way of pillows and decorative throws. Switching up an existing pattern with a bold new colour way, or mixing in additional, harmonious prints evokes a spirited sense of eclecticism. To ensure cohesiveness, choose complementary colours and be mindful of the dialogue between patterns.
An iconic coffee table book, bauble box, or cool vintage find adds drama and allure. Seek out pieces that feel personal and soulful. Special touches that resonate with your unique aesthetic bring life and vibrancy to a home. Guests will enjoy thoughtful flourishes—from a new fragrance to a bold decorative bowl—and these additions offer chic panache and up-to-the-minute style.
