    Bring the outdoors in

    The British weather is renowned for its unpredictability, even our treasured August bank holiday can sometimes let us down. So instead of spending time in your garden, why not bring your garden indoors – this modern console is made all the more eye-catching by a little green fingered goodness, bringing life into a potentially sparse corridor!

    Get creative with your artwork

    Sometimes even the best artwork can benefit from a spontaneous revamp. Get the paints out and start experimenting, who knows you might even create a masterpiece!

    Strip those walls!

    Although a relatively big job, you’ll feel on top of the world on Monday evening having diligently spent your bank holiday wallpapering. Plus if you pick a design out of your comfort zone, you’ll feel like you’ve achieved even more with your brand new, chic look.

    Dig out your paintbrush

    There’s nothing more fun on a bank holiday than watching paint dry, right? Well, turns out there isn’t, especially when you’ve just spent your day revamping your home – invest in new colours and take a risk with shapes and patterns, not only will it be more fun than painting that infamous magnolia wall, it will end up looking fantastic!

    Make yourself a craft corner

    The plain lamp that’s been sat on the end of your hallway console for years is in need of a change! But you don’t need to splash out on a fancy shade when you can get fake flowers in your local craft store and spend a few hours being a creative genius.
