Interior inspiration: Decorating a big house
Moving house is always a challenge, especially if you’re upsizing from a smaller home.
If the house you’re moving to is especially big – with larger spaces and more bedrooms – how should you tackle the task of decorating?
If you’re unsure exactly where to start, here’s a plan of action especially for you.
Tackle your decorating project room by room
Only when it’s a usable, comfortable room should you move on to the next, so the project is broken down into smaller, more manageable chunks.
Create room divisions and embrace quirky layouts
Incorporate warmer colours
If you’re not a fan of in-your-face colours, you can incorporate a splash of bright hues with scatter cushions, curtains and ornaments.
Go two tone on your walls
White and slate grey work well together, while other great colour pairings include white and pastel green, and two shades of contrasting blue.
Hang plenty of pictures on the walls
Mismatch your frames for a vintage feel, or go ultra-modern with matching black or white frames.
