How to Luxuriously Upgrade Your Home

*Collaborative post.

Home is where the heart is and everyone dreams about having a luxury home. While an enormous mansion may be out of reach, there are a few upgrades that you can make to your home to bring some luxury into your life and this could make a big difference to your life as well as add a significant amount of value to the property.

Elegant Solutions for When Your Home is Losing the Battle For Space picture

Wine Cellar

A wine cellar is always a great way to impress your guests and a nice addition to the home (especially for wine lovers!). A wine cellar is seen to be a luxury feature of a home but it is actually one of the easiest and affordable upgrades that you can make – often it is the wine which is the real expense! You can, of course, make this a stylish space but the most important is having suitable storage for the wine and ensuring that it is stored at the right temperature.


Walk-In Wardrobe

Having a walk-in wardrobe from somewhere like Hammonds is a stylish upgrade and one which can make a big difference to your life. People often have their clothes crammed into tiny wardrobes and drawers, but having a spacious and open area where you can easily keep all of your clothes will make it much easier to get ready each day, showcase your fashion sense and add some luxury to your home.

Hot Tub

When people think about luxury, they often think about a hot tub so this is a great addition to your home. A hot tub can actually make a big difference to your life as it is good for unwinding and reducing stress, which could have both physical and mental health benefits so it is a smart investment to make, plus they do not require any construction and are easy to obtain.

Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating is a lovely feature to have for the winter months of the year where you no longer have to worry about freezing cold feet when you walk in the bathroom. This can actually make a big difference to your mood and is a great way to add some value to your property.

If you want to bring some luxury into your home and life then these are all good options to consider. You do not necessarily have to have an enormous mansion or a huge amount of money to enjoy the finer things in life and you will find that these are all luxurious upgrades that could also add value to your home.


Grey Interior Decor for Living Rooms

When it comes to interior decor, like most things; I always go for quality over quantity. Clutter makes my head ache, so I like my living spaces with as little furniture as possible. I only go for items that are pretty and useful, and those that would allow me keep the space clutter free. A well decorated living room is always liked and admired by many. There is nothing like entering a living room, and every furniture is in the right place. Attention to detail is everything when it comes to interior decor.

The grey shade is a popular neutral colour for interior decor. It is one of my favourite shades when it comes to balancing our a room with neutral tones. Here are 3 great grey decor items for living rooms –



Grey Cushions

Updating your living room with cushions is cheap and easy. If you are after spicing up with your living room interiors with a small budget, go for updating your cushions in the right colours and design. I currently have my eye on this Grey Velvet Cushion by Baytree Interiors. The cushions come in a good size – 45X45cm, and price – currently on sale for £15.16 at the time of writing.

I love the velvet material, it is so luxurious and looks great for modern or contemporary living rooms. The cushions come in other colours as well – Navy Blue, Pink, Teal, Orange, Mustard, Emerald and Aubergine, if you prefer some brighter colour.

AmazonBasics Heat Insulating Blackout Curtain

I love grey curtains and this AmazonBasics Heat Insulating Blackout curtain is a great decor option. I love the fact that it is blackout. That is great for the current season, as the last thing I need is to wake up when the sun comes out. They are great for bedrooms and living rooms as they help keep the sunlight out.

The shade is perfect if you are after a neutral look, and the price is even more perfect at £27.99 for 168X137. I love it!

Getting your Home Spring Ready

Winter is well and truly behind us now, and it is time to usher in the spring season. Which means it is time to tuck the chunky blankets away and bring on the light and airy decor. I am super excited, spring is such a beautiful season. It usually feels like a breath of fresh air after months of the chilly weather. And our winter this year started off really cold and ended up even colder. Special thanks to the Beast from the East and Storm Emma.

In the spring season, I am usually in the mood to do some decluttering and proper spring cleaning. There is just something about the longer days that makes me feel I can take on a lot more. I have been very busy these last few weeks, thinking of ways to make my home brighter for spring, and I have come up with these ideas.


Move furniture around

Moving furniture around is a quick easy of way of changing the look of a room. Once I spring clean our house, I get rid of anything we won’t be needing. Once that bit is done, I adjust some of the furniture that needs adjusting to suit the season. And it works every time. The room is instantly brightened up once these tasks are completed. You should try it.


Get storage furniture

I am a huge fan of any furniture that stores stuff. They are so handy to have around the house. I wish all furniture could store stuff. It would make my living a lot easier. I recently came across some amazing furniture desks on Lionshome and I wish I could grab them all. Here are 2 furniture desks on Lionshome website I really like.

I love how modern both desks are, especially the Sharpley Ladder Writing Desk. It would look amazing in my living room. And it would store our books neatly too.


Invite Nature In

I love to have flowers around the house especially in the spring/summer months. I suffer from Hayfever in the summer, so I am unable to spend as much time outdoors as I would want to. Having flowers in my living space is my way of inviting nature in and staying safe. Besides, pretty flowers are easy on the eyes and they smell fab.

Get Spring Candles

If you know me well enough, you would know how much I love my candles and diffusers. The smell of sweet-smelling candles and diffusers makes my house feel even more like a home. I have run out of my autumn/winter candles, so I will be stocking up on some spring/summer candles in the next few days. The smell of a fresh scent in my home lifts my mood. I love having different candles in each room, so I can get to sniff in different scents.
