If your partner asks if you have too many cushions, the answer is simple: no. Think of cushions and throws as the interior design equivalent of accessories: they instantly elevate your look with minimal outlay or effort. Swap breezy linen cushion covers for opulent velvet as the seasons change, and replace lightweight pastel throws with rich jewel tones and cosy fabrics to bring a more wintery mood. Ensure that big-ticket items like your bedhead, wall colour and carpet are in neutral shades so you can mix and match with them multiple times over. See the extensive range at Spotlight for a style to suit you, from breezy bohemian to contemporary chic.
Light up the night
If soft furnishings are the accessories, lighting is your room’s jewellery: your chance to add glittering metallic accents that are as functional as they are fabulous. Bedside table lamps are an obvious choice, but if you can, consider pendants suspended on either side of the bed for a sophisticated look befitting a luxury hotel. No plans to renovate? A string of fairy lights strung above a window, draped romantically across a bedhead or clustered in a mason jar brings a magical mood with the flick of a switch – shop the look at Spotlight.
Ladies, it’s time to go window shopping: for curtains, that is. From billowing sheer linens that softly diffuse sunlight into a space, to luxurious triple-weave drapes that create a beautifully dark bedroom, ready-made curtains are the answer when you’re in the market for a dramatic room makeover. Read Spotlight’s comprehensive curtains buying guide to find the best style for your space.
Nothing spells boring more than bare walls. Bring personality to your bedroom with evocative art that speaks to your style. It doesn’t have to be expensive: think tasseled garlands and macramé wall hangings for a dash of bohemian flair, or etched mirrors and canvas prints to add texture and colour. You can find all of the above at Spotlight, plus simple DIY projects if you’re in the mood for a crafternoon.
