5 of the Best... Items to Add to Your Home Now

A new year brings the opportunity for a fresh start, both personally and in your home.
It's easy to change the look and feel of your home by adding one or two items from new collections that compliment and update your existing decor.

Here's my list of 5 of the best items to add to your decorative home right now....

1. Wooden Elements

Plants are obviously a layer to add to your home that bring life and clean, fresh air (as well as colour).  To show off your plants, place them in a Wooden Pot from Zakkia and create a natural, fresh and vibrant addition to your home.

2. Time
A simple and fresh take on a classic design, the addition of a clean faced clock is a must for any decorative home. A large black and white face, reminiscent of a railway platform clock from Country Road is the perfect choice.

3. Dark Undertones
The clever accompaniment to most colour schemes is a pop of dark, grounding colour. The Washed Linen Cushion Cover from H&M Home is a perfect mix of light and heavy. It's made from Linen which gives it a soft overall look whilst providing a strong sense of drama thanks to its denim colour.

4. Green, Green, Green!
I have a weird philosophy, 'you can never have too many tea towels'.  Certainly not a philosophy that's going to change the world but one i'm quite happy with. Pantone's colour of 2017 is 'Greenery' and although the colour itself is one particular shade, the name suggests to add pops of Green in any way you can. The Rare Garden Green tea towel from Bonnie and Neil is a great example of simple, clean Green.

5. Fresh Wall Art
Moody Blues and pale Pinks are a certain favourite of mine. Surprisingly, this combination works with numerous colour schemes but is incredibly effective when surrounded by neutral, muted tones. The Blacklist X Wall Print from Freedom would make a wonderful addition to a Seaside/Beachy design or even a Hamptons style retreat.
