Lockdown gave many of us the opportunity to spend more time making our homes a little more comfortable, many spent the time decorating or revamping the garden. Some people didn’t get the chance, due to being a frontline worker or having other commitments, so in order to avoid feeling like your home is so 2019 here are 8 great ways to add a little style to your home this Autumn.

Layer Carpets & Rugs

Rugs are a great way to liven up a room or cover a patch of tired carpet. A rug placed beneath a dining table can make even the most mundane table a focal point of your room. A long rug is also a great way to bring some colour to any wooden floors you may have, they also give a little warmth underfoot which is great as the weather begins to get a little cooler.

Display Books In Alternating Ways

Got loads of books you no longer read? These literary masterpieces can also be used as a decoration for your shelves. Neat and organised doesn’t quite bring the style we want, so stacking in unconventional ways is guaranteed to catch the eye.

Use A Conversation Piece

You don’t need to revamp a room to add some style, simply adding in a conversation piece can take your room from the run of the mill to style superstar. Your conversation piece can be anything, from work or art to a statement of your passion or hobbies. There is plenty of statement piece inspiration to get you in the mood or inspire you to try something a little different!
