New Year, New Look

Fantastic Furniture have come up with a few ways to give your home a new lease on life at a totally affordable price. As we slowly emerge from all the celebrations and festive cheer of the holiday season, 2018 has well and truly started. Embrace the arrival of the New Year with a blank canvas and refreshed attitude; who knows where your imagination will take you.

January Rejig
The simplest and most cost-effective way to freshen up your home is by working with what you already have. Donate or recycle unused items to give your living space some room to breathe. Then, it’s time to get a little adventurous with how you arrange your furnishings and d├ęcor. The easiest way to do this is to reposition your focal point (typically the TV) and you’ll quickly gather an idea of where your lounges, art pieces and other homewares could live.

Colours of the New Year
One of our favourite ways to inject a little inspiration into a room is to add a splash of on-trend colour. The hero of 2017, millennial pink, is still ‘in’ for 2018 but we recommend limiting this to smaller items that can easily be swapped out, such as cushions and linen. If you really want to keep up with the trendsetters, opt for warm, earthy tones and rich retro colours – think avo greens and harvest golds. And we’re calling it now, floral is making a comeback in 2018, so roll out the flowery goodness.

All about the brass
Last year, the big hit in interior styling was copper homewares. In 2018, brass is the new copper. Try weaving touches of brass into your home style alongside natural, wooden colours and indoor plants for a soothing fusion of earthy elements. An easy way to get started is by pairing brass homewares such as desk lamps, vases and other trinkets with items like timber coffee tables, side tables and photo frames.

Welcome a new addition
If you want to go all out, and create impact, consider updating one key piece of furniture. Swap out that tired lounge for the Jazz 3 Seater Chaise. Made in Australia with over 100 fabrics to choose from, the Jazz is sure to inject some personality into your space. Complete the look with velvet accessories, set to make an appearance in homes of those with their fingers on the interior style pulse this year.
