Start the New Year Afresh

Jan 22, 2018  ·  3 min read

A new year lies ahead, and what perfect way to begin 2018 than to give your humble abode some serious TLC. Often we find ourselves getting so caught up in the chaos of the daily grind that we rarely stop to appreciate the sanctuary that is the home.

Lucky for you, Canberra’s thriving design scene is the perfect canvas for your new year’s resolutions, and we’re here to help you navigate it. Clear your mind, your senses and get sprucing!

A touch of greenery

You can guess that we were super excited when we heard the latest innovation in greenery goodness hit the capital late last year. Planted allows you to browse a gorgeous selection of indoor plants from $30-$100 online, and have them delivered to your doorstep! These low maintenance beauties are perfect to add liveliness to your home, minus the intensive care routine.

Find your signature scent

The fragrance of your home sets the tone of your space; whether it’s woody and sophisticated or floral and cosy, it’s an affair of the senses that’s important to get juuust right. Perfect Potion are experts in just that, stocking a range of essential oils, diffusers, and indoor sprays waiting to find their perfect match. Smell your way to homely heaven!

A new look

Absolutely nothing beats the feeling of sinking your toes into freshly washed linen. Treating yourself to fresh bedding is a great way to change up your space, without having to make any rash decisions you may regret later on (yes, bright green feature wall, we’re talking to you). Experimenting with colour and texture is a great way to brighten your space and play with colour trends.

The great news is the Canberra Centre’s newest beauty precinct has brought bedroom décor heaven to our doorstep, with Bed Bath and Table, Country Road, and Wheel & Barrow to name just a few of our favourite bedroom interior hotspots.

Stylish accents

Another simple but great way to spice up your space is by updating a few key accent pieces. These ornamental features are a great way to introduce a touch of colour and quirk, and add a hint of style to your abode. Fortunately for you, our very own QTique houses a curated selection of hand-picked pieces to add that je-ne-sais-quoi to your ever so trendy home.

Fresh blooms

It’s no secret that a fresh bunch of blooms aren’t just easy on the eye. Fresh flowers have been proven to stimulate creativity, increase productivity, as well as positively impact mood and energy – not to mention the gorgeous scent it will leave floating around your home.

The lovely babes at Moxom + Whitney will help you find the perfect bunch to give your home a well-deserved refresh. Bloom away!
