"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
William Morris, 19th century designer
Small urban patio
Declutter and tidy the smallest outside areas to create more space and make it usable and more enjoyable to be in. Treat it like another room.
Bedroom soft furnishings
Add textures and colour to bedroom soft furnishings.
It is the outside not just the inside which matters. The front of your property will be the first and last impression of your home. Make it as inviting as possible.
Contemporary v Traditional
Contemporary and traditional can work well together.
A favourite chair or a family heirloom can be given a new lease of life with re-upholstery.
From office to living area
Preparing a house for rental or sale - the main living area needs to reflect its purpose, not a massive office!
Ready for sale
After a declutter, staged for Estate Agent photos.
Small cloakrooms can be maximised with the right proportioned basin for the space.
Textures and colour
Textures and thread detail on cushions add interest to a plain sofa or armchair.
From printer to oven!
A kitchen needs an oven not a printer!
Decluttering is about keeping what you love and enjoying what you surround yourself with.
The perils of Man Caves
Although it can be useful to live with someone who is a carpenter, a plumber, a painter and all-round odd-job man, it doesn't have to look like this! Total chaos can become a very useful, organised area where you can find what you need.
Bathroom ready for rental
A few small changes to the bathroom to prepare the house for rent.
Attics should ideally be used for Christmas decorations and a limited amount of memorabilia.
Privacy film is a great alternative to net or voile curtains, even for the lower half of a window. Light can still get in and it gives a tidier, sharper look.
Decluttering gives tenants or buyers (or yourself) a sense of space to use the room for whatever is needed. A bedroom, a nursery, an office or a playroom?
No longer needed
One man's rubbish, is another man's treasure. If you no longer need it, use it or love it, someone else will - give it to Charity.
What was once a chaotic, under-used conservatory, is now an ordered, relaxing space to be enjoyed and used to its full potential.
