1. Get Reflective
One of the quickest ways to update your home is by introducing a new mirror.

Hang wall mirrors above fireplaces, console tables or sideboards to fill up empty wall spaces. While larger, full length mirrors look fabulous leant against walls in a bedroom or dressing room and will instantly make a space look far larger.
The mirror you choose will ultimately depend on your personal style and chosen interior theme. Browse Melody Maison’s full range for all options.
2. A Fresh Lick
A fresh coat of paint is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to spruce up any space! It will instantly reinvigorate bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms—you name it!

A quick way to update your home are with wall accessories, they quickly fill up space and will instantly entertain the eye. Items like wall clocks, framed prints and wall sconces will add a unique touch to your wall space and quickly fill up that empty space.

4. Go Green
Plants are an inexpensive way to bring life into any room. Not only do they purify air naturally, but they also give off calming vibes while adding colour and texture throughout the space.
