Colour drench with your favourite shade
Found a shade that you totally adore? Well, don’t just use it subtly - go all out with colour-drenched decor.
From the walls and ceiling to the fireplace and furniture, colour drenching means using various shades of the same colour in all areas of the room to create a characterful and cosy feel.

Fill your shelves with beautiful items
When storage space isn’t at a premium, you can afford to use your shelving space to curate a beautiful collection of visually attractive items.
Whether it’s vases you’ve collected from your travels or things that have been handed down from past generations, take your time to create a shelving display that captures your imagination.

Give your room life with plants
Household greenery adds a wholesome aesthetic to any room - from the kitchen to the bedroom. Place plants on shelves, coffee tables, bedside tables and window boxes to add a visual connection to nature.
Not only are plants visually pleasing, but they are also extremely beneficial in boosting your mood and oxygen levels too!

Create a gallery wall
A gallery wall is one of the most personal ways to finish off your aesthetic room design.
Whether you use photos, framed prints or sculptures - or a mix of all three - be sure to think about the colours, sizing and spacing of the items to ensure they are balanced and harmonious together on the wall space.

Play with shape
Rooms don’t always have to be angular. Curved lines tend to soften the appearance of a room, as well as creating visual interest and charm.
The circular paintwork in this living room not only frames the sofa area neatly, but it also adds character and depth to the overall aesthetic of the space.

Bring your travels home
Artworks, soft furnishings and room accessories are great items to pick up on your travels and return home with you.
Not only do they provide you with oodles of memories of amazing times, but they also add individuality and bohemian vibes to a room's interior.

Embrace your home’s quirky features
Your aesthetic room decor should always work around the natural features of your home’s build and layout.
Be creative with sloping walls, curved doorways and different floor heights to create quirky and interesting spaces instead of trying to hide them.
Accent with rattan
Rattan offers a wonderful, rustic aesthetic within a nature-inspired home. It blends beautifully with shades of green and blue, and neutral palettes too.
Select rattan framed wall mirrors, bedhead headboards and storage baskets to accessorise your bedroom or living area.

Get creative with wall art
Feeling extra creative? If so, painted wall art is a great way to showcase self-expression in your home as well as inject life and colour into otherwise neutral colour palettes.
Use a stencil to apply painted shapes to walls or ceilings, or try something freehand for a totally bespoke and unique statement!
