these items to your space will inject some affordable personality and colour into your space, without the stress of potentially damaging your property.
Display photos and souvenirs.
Do you have some family photos orsouvenirsfrom your travelsthat you’dlike to display around your home? Put your favourite photos in frames and display them on surfaces like your coffee table, a desk, or on the wallsif there are pre- existing hooksavailable.
Add some art
Check the walls in your property for any pre-existing hooks where you could add a piece of artwork. With many stores like Kmart and Officeworks selling canvas and
framed artworks at affordable prices, you can add some colour to your walls without breaking the bank or your lease!
Change your lighting
Changing the wattage of your light globes or adding some fun lamps to a space can completely transform the environment you create. Try using light globes that produce
soft light in bedrooms and relaxing living areas to create a sense of tranquility. If there’s a corner of your home that feels dark or empty, try adding a stylish floor lamp to brighten up your space.
