MEASURE UP Check how much space a piece of furniture will take up before buying with our Measuring Up Guide. Simply take a piece of newspaper and make a template of the item. Place the paper on floor to see if the dimensions work with your existing furniture.
RUGS Define areas in your room with rugs. Large-open plan rooms benefit being separated into smaller more intimate areas. But remember, since they are in the same room they need to complement each other in style and colour.
ACCESSORIES Updating cushions, throws, rugs and candles is a quick and inexpensive way of refreshing your scheme. You can use them to introduce a new accent colour to an existing neutral scheme and even change them to compliment the seasons.
