In interior design, few things are more satisfying than a fantastic before-and-after shot. It’s time! We have waited so long to share this post with you, but it’s finally here!

For many interior designers and DIY experts, renovations take months to complete and require extensive preparation and execution. The whole process is an arduous and expensive undertaking.

However, there are more budget-friendly makeover ideas you (and your space) need. As we all know, a makeover can drastically change the look of any room - it doesn’t always require a high investment either. It is possible to create your dream space without renewing everything. 

You can reutilise some of your existing furniture as we did in this recent property styling project - where we achieved amazing transformations with just strategic rug placement and small decor accents that help tie the space together. 

Our team used their creative magic to add style and value to this home- transformed in a flash thanks to clever budget-friendly ideas and an eye for reinvention. Seeing this blank canvas come to life is incredibly inspiring – a compelling reason to reconsider the hidden potential waiting to be uncovered within your own four walls. 

Home styling will set your property apart from the rest. With clever thinking and a good sense of space planning, any room can be converted into an improved space with stunning results.

BEFORE & AFTER

There's little that excites us more than taking an undecorated, characterless space and using all the styling expertise we have built up over the years to transform it into a room that oozes personality. Before styling this space, it looked stark and lacked personality.

When starting from scratch, the puzzle is how to add character. With perfect rug placement, a little greenery, plush soft furnishings, and glassware, the result after styling is a refreshing and tranquil oasis. 

As you can see, from making a statement to defining a zone, a rug is the ultimate style tool. Rugs anchor a room and infuse it with personality, style, and warmth. 

They can be one of the more expensive pieces you buy for your home, so it's crucial to make sure you choose the right one and know how to position it. Here is our guide on rug placement in different rooms in the home. 

We love the colour, texture and feel that a Persian or Oriental rug brings to a room - it’s the key piece and one of the main building blocks to creating a cohesive space.

The rug featured in the location shoot is a gorgeous Persian Sultanabad - 522x400cm with beautiful muted earth tones and intricate abstract graphics. Click the link below to view the product page.
