Embellishing is very fashionable at the moment. Cushions, pom poms, sequins and embroidery are all being used to add a certain something to interiors. Liven up cushions with a strip of pom poms; they're easy enough to sew by hand. Embroidery can turn a mundane looking item in to something completely unique.
If the weather is good why not venture out in to the garden this bank holiday? Try planting some aromatic herbs to give your garden a lift. You can save some cash on your favourites like bay and rosemary by growing your own. Try planting the seeds in tins and vintage pots. It's so simple to build your own little herb garden and seeds can be bought from local hardware shops or garden centres.
Why not have a big clean? Buy a re-grouting pen for old tiles, it breathes new life into kitchens and bathrooms. To really freshen things up around the home try mixing a few drops of lemon, lavender or orange to bi-carbonated soda, it works brilliantly as a natural cleaner for carpets. Just sprinkle over and hoover. Your room will smell amazing and be stain free to boot.
Putting up shelves is one of the simplest of DIY tasks. It can also make the biggest impact in terms of storage and space management. Try some staggered shelving, it looks unusual and makes a great focal point with candles and vases.
If DIY isn't your thing you don't need to get out the stepladder and power tools to make a difference. Why not add a few glass drop beads, buttons and trims along the edge of a lampshade for an individual look which you can change according to your latest colour scheme. Old bracelets are a good source of beads and won't cost you a penny.
Upholstered furniture is very trendy at the moment. Try your hand at upholstering a lamp by cutting, gluing and wrapping scraps of material around an old or salvaged lamp base or shade. Then customise with accessories like beads.
Add some colour to your home with some bright vases and flowers. It's a great way to get kids involved too. Why not get them growing cuttings from the garden. Anything can be used from biscuit tins to jam jars.
