Adding a Personal Touch to Your New Home


Lighting plays a crucial role in establishing a home's ambience. Modern new build homes are all about creating bright, airy and inviting living areas, but there are other ways you can add additional depth to your home with the use of lighting:

  • Layer your lighting: Combine overhead lights with table and floor lamps to create different zones in a room.
  • Task lighting: Highlight specific areas like kitchen worktops or reading corners with focused task lighting.
  • Warm it up: opt for warm white bulbs over cool white ones for a cosier feel.


Adding plants to your home
Houseplants are not just attractive to look at, but they're also proven to improve air quality and boost your mood. Here's how to integrate greenery:

  • Choose the right plant for the right spot: Consider sunlight and watering needs when selecting plants.
  • Variety is key: Mix and match different shapes, sizes,and textures of plants for visual interest. Hanging plants can also help maximise space.
  • Statement pieces: A large fiddle leaf fig in the corner or a cascading spider plant on a bookshelf can add depth.


Scent can be a powerful tool for creating a welcoming atmosphere:

  • Essential oil diffusers: Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to a diffuser for a subtle, natural fragrance.
  • Scented candles: Use candles sparingly andopt for natural soy waxes and essential oil blends for a more luxurious aroma.
  • Potpourri bowls: Strategically placed potpourri bowls can add a touch of fragrance and visual interest. Choose natural ingredients and refresh them regularly.

Colour Schemes

Colour has a profound impact on how we feel in a space. Here's how to choose the right colours:

  • Consider the room's function: Warm colours like red and orange are energising, while cool colours like blue and green promote relaxation.
  • The rule of three: Limit yourself to three main colours - a dominant colour, a secondary colour, and an accent colour - for a cohesive look
  • Don't be afraid to experiment: Use paint samples and mood boards to find a colour scheme that speaks to you.


Artwork is a fantastic way to showcase your personality and add conversation starters:

  • Go beyond the canvas: Explore framed photographs, tapestries, sculptures, or even vintage finds for a unique touch.
  • Reflect your interests: Choose artwork that represents your hobbies, travel experiences or favourite artists.
  • Gallery walls: Create a curated gallery wall by grouping smaller pieces together.
