There are some of us out there that decide the week before Christmas is the perfect time to re-decorate the entire house (yep, a few hands have gone up in our office!) Whilst we certainly agree that installing new roller blinds, sheer curtains and plantation shutters really make a massive difference, do we really need to buy a bunch of new accessories? Or with the current popularity of re-use and re-cycle, can we make do with our trusty old pieces and just give them a clean and a bit of a spruce up? We've made a quick little list of styling tips for you, and our friend and customer Claire @thekmartlover pitches in with her favourites too.
