Add glamour to wallpaper with rhinestones, a touch of sparkle can uplift and give a traditional design modern allure. How to: Use a good-quality, all-purpose clear glue with a fine nozzle to stick rhinestones in place. Work in small areas and use sparingly for a subtle effect.
Hand-paint a lampshade, the painterly trend is easy to achieve – a few brush strokes and no artistic skill required. Why not have a go at updating your lampshade? Mark out your pattern in pencil before you begin, but ensure your fabric paint is undiluted so the marks don’t show through. Use a good-quality flat brush to create strokes on the lampshade. Allow it to dry before switching on the light.
Make use of an awkward space, in a small living room, every piece of furniture has to earn its keep so it’s a great excuse to make a bold statement with striking modern chairs. These acid yellow beauties don’t overwhelm the space due to their fine steel frames, which allow you to see underneath and through them to make the room feel bigger. Continue the graphic theme with a round black table, monochrome rug and minimal floor lamp.
