    Get shelvingIf you’re an avid reader with overflowing bookshelves, you may be unwittingly making your bedroom or living room feel more cluttered or messy than it really is. Give your home library a tidy and ensure all books are standing upright and spines out – it’s even better if the covers make for a complementary colour palette, as these books do.9 ridiculously simple trend updates for your interiors

    5. Show off your personalityWe’re all different – that’s what makes the world so interesting – so why not reflect a little more of your true self around your home? If you secretly still love Lego or toy robots, for example, why hide that passion away? Whatever gives you a little jolt of joy is the thing to put on display – or have each member of the family choose a favourite item to add to a community vignette.

    4. Extra-long sofa Whether it’s a movie night, story time or simply a family gathering in the living room, ample sofa space will come in very handy. A darker colour such as navy or charcoal will stand the test of time, while cushions and throws bring personality and colour.

    2. Express yourself through decorating While there’s nothing wrong with incorporating the latest interior trends into your home, focusing on quality rather than quantity and adding only what you love to your space will make your home feel uniquely yours. Artwork, accent cushions and colours are easy and affordable ways to let your personality shine through.

    3. Just add booksBooks have the magical ability to make any room feel instantly homey. Floor-to-ceiling bookcases are an economical storage solution, while being a natural focal point thanks to the interest they create. Organise your books by topic, author or even colour.Brilliant ideas for bookcases

    Toss on a throw This is the easiest one by far, so I’ve saved it for last. Go mine your bedroom, linen closet or trunk for a blanket you may never have considered for your living room. Instantly update your sofa by draping it over the back, or on the seat the way you see here. TELL USWhat do you do when you get the home decor blahs?

    1. Be purposeful with colour A considered colour palette is a tool that can create a sense of direction in an eclectic home, allowing you to curate your home’s look. You can have a lot or a little colour – the key is to have a plan; otherwise you run the risk of ending up with a mishmash of eccentric pieces that do not harmonise.In the space shown here, pink, purple and blue are repeated in the artwork, pillows, throw and even the spine of a book and the small potted plant on the coffee table, creating an energetic yet collected colour palette.

    This is a favorite because size is similar - also like the neutral tons and pink/blue accents. Less casual art (at least above the fireplace)
