Hints and tips from one of the UKs top Interior Stylists on how to transform your living space


We all enjoy creating a beautiful home, but with trends forever changing there are simpler ways to transform a living space without having to re-plaster your walls or shell out for a new carpet.


When it comes to design it is all about the finishing touches which can complete a room and pull features together. Through a few simple steps, you can bring out your own individual style, by refreshing a room with small touches of luxury.


No one knows this more than Interior Stylist Maxine Brady, who with her handy guide will share with you a few tips for refreshing the rooms in your home. Through quality touches, sumptuous natural fabrics and looking out for the COTTON USA trademark, you can transform your living space in to a stylish haven.


Maxines top tips:


Try mixing and matching layers of bed linens in gorgeous soft pastel shades. Not only is the look bang on trend but it makes your room really cosy and youll want nothing more than to snuggle up in a comfy room.


Natural fabrics are a must have for the bedroom. This room is a luxurious area - you spend a lot of time in there so you want it to be a fabulous, sumptuous space to be in.


Scented candles are brilliant for adding beautiful warm fragrances to your rooms but they can also help you unwind and even when unlit they help decorate a room.


Dont fret if your home has small rooms! You can buy large mirrors and carefully place them so they reflect the space and make a small room look bigger. Mirrors are a low-cost way of making a big difference to a room.


Invest in a towel radiator, not only will it keep your bathroom warm, but you can also use it to show off your towels. There are stylish and trendy towel radiators on the market and they can also help you save space in your bathroom.


Who says flowers should only be in the kitchen and living room? Try placing fragrant flowers like hyacinths in your bathroom; they help give your bathroom a pretty natural smell and bring gorgeous vibrant colours to a small space.
