Top 5 2020 interior tips

  1. Turn corners into nature statements with a ceiling-high potted leafy plant in an egg-shell rustic pot. Against a light green or white wall, this look is particularly refreshing and relaxed.
  2. Use pallets to make an inside wall feature with potted creeper plants either artfully placed within added shelves or creatively tied to the pallet itself. You can further intersperse small candles or fairy lights to great effect.
  3. Make your bedroom a cathartic haven. The modern, clean and fastidiously tidy bedroom is now thing of the past. Instead soft linens, timber, throws and pallet bed frames next to a rustic wall feature filled with plants, lanterns, books and maps is dominating bedroom Pinterest boards across the planet. Consider the use of fairy lights on furniture and relaxing earthy colours (with a major pop of sage).
  4. Spruce up your bathroom with contrasting colours (throw in a black showerhead and some timber cabinetry) for a relaxed yet chic look and use framed mirrors as practical yet attractive pieces of art. You can set the mood with soft amber lights.
