It’s September and the children are finally back at school, which not only means a little peace and quiet, but some time to make your house look less like a chaotic clutter and more like a home again. Well…until the weekend that is. So have a read of our IWOOT blog and find out how to piece your home back together again and get house proud!
Soft blankets and cushions can only mean one thing – cosy movie nights in with the family, especially as winter approaches. Fleecy blankets, throws and sophisticated cushions can also add style to your home. And… it’s a proven, scientific fact that you can never have too many! The more cushions you have either in your living room or bedroom, the cosier the home. So, soften up and cosy up in time for cooler nights.
There are two options when it comes to wall art. 1. Hang small, delicate touches on shelves and walls. 2. Add big, colourful, outrageous pieces. Now if we’re honest here at IWOOT, we like both options. Depending on the room and the family, your taste in wall art will inevitably change. In fact, different members of the family will have different opinions about wall art. Try picture frames, filled with loving (and funny) photos together, or a funky new canvas to brighten up a bedroom wall. If you want to make the most of a feature wall, you could try adding an impressive mural that will undoubtedly transform the atmosphere of the room.
Walking on tiles early in the morning or late at night can really make a bathroom seem like an igloo. Add towels, baskets and colourful home storage to make it more inviting. If you have a bath, adding candles and delicate touches can make the bathroom a place to relax, rather than a busy hub as everyone gets ready for the day ahead.
Make your house less chaotic by adding clocks to each room. At IWOOT.com you can find clocks for any style; shabby chic, modern or one of those messy-teenage-bedroom looks that every house seems to have. As an added bonus, children will learn to be more responsible for themselves and their schedule, so not only will your house look organised but the people inside will be too!
