Redecorating Ideas Please

Ask a Question

I work from home, I need my hall looks nice for my kids and work. I painted the walls with white paint which looks good for a office but too bad for a living room :/ walls, ceiling, windows, doors everything is just bright white.

Please give me some ideas to make it a little interesting and pretty. I have wooden affect laminated sheets on the floor.

I mostly work online and make vedio calls but now when lockdown is over I would have homecoming clients as well.

You don't necessarily need to paint if you're walls are white, you could add lots of accessories (mirrors/pictures/plants etc) to make it look good too

I really like pastel colours for walls, I find them a lot less harsh than brighter colours. A pastel green would look nice and it would go with the laminate flooring.

Pinterest is great for inspiration too.

Our living room was magnolia and I just added accessories to add colour to it. I had throws on the sofa, cushions, rug light shade, storage boxes etc in chocolate brown and cream. I think as long as your house is clean and tidy your clients won't care how it's decorated.

WindowShopper we used to use our rug as a playmat for our son when younger as it meant he felt like he had his own space.

We don't have a lot of stuff in our house, I had a clock and 2 pictures on our living room walls and that was it, I can't deal with having too much clutter.

MrsCraig same here I like space, especially, when I don't have a garden I need to give kids somewhere to play.
