Five Home Accessories You Need in 2019

I'm always looking for cute and quirky ways to update my home and a new year is the perfect excuse to do so. Fancy a home update in 2019? I thought I would share a few tips on how to freshen up your home on a budget.


Colour change

Colour change

One of the easiest ways to transform your home is a change of colour scheme. This doesn't always have to mean slathering the walls in paint and getting new carpets. Cushions are a great way to change a colour scheme on a budget. If you want to go one step further why not switch it up with a new rug or throw too.

Adding Greenery... and maintaining it!

Houseplants are the perfect way to fill your home with life and vibrancy. The fab thing about houseplants is you can choose ones which suit you. If you're on a budget try something smaller such as cacti or a succulent . Perhaps you want a low-maintenance plant like a Spider Plant (don't be put off by the name!). Have a little look around, you're bound to find something you love.

A Little bit of Light

Lighting doesn't always have to be boring. Fairy lights are a versatile way to make your home cosy, well-lit and unique . Not only this, they are a great way to get creative and can be used in so many ways. If you have a blank area try making a fairy light curtain wall or re-creating one of the D.I.Ys in the video above. There are so many fun options with fairy lights.

Time for a change

When you think of clocks you may automatically think about simple wall clocks just plonked as a space filler. If chosen correctly, clocks can be used as art. Unusual clocks can be a statement piece in a home. A time-telling talking point to update your home in the new year.

Get Arty

Art is a great way to make your home personal to you. A gallery wall is an amazing way to fill space and add personality to a room. Mix it up with the other tips too, why not add a clock and some fairy lights to create cosy character. The great thing about art is that there's something for everyone. Like quirky and fun pieces? Why not go for a colourful Andy Warhol print? Have more abstract tastes? Go for a joyful Henry Matisse collage. Have a play around and see what you can come up with!
