INJECT SOME FUN INTO YOUR DECOR We tend to take decorating our homes pretty seriously. And why shouldn’t we? Our homes are our sanctuaries and a reflection of our personalities. But that doesn’t mean we also can’t have a little fun. Some of today’s current trends are centered on a sense of whimsy. Take retro lamps for example. Whether bright red, turquoise blue or apple green – a vintage lamp throws back to the good ol’ days and injects some colour into any space. Or what about an unusually shaped chair? Not only can a seat with a curvaceous backrest be a comfortable place to sit, but it can also act as a piece of art. Especially if it’s covered in a bold print. A sculptural chandelier is another way to make a statement. Think oversized or uniquely shaped. Lastly, vintage and antique furniture and accessories can add a hit of quirkiness – especially if they’re from eras such as the 1960s or 70s.
