DIY Artwork

A great way to spruce up your space without the spend is by creating your own bespoke artwork.

Recreating your favourite paintings or putting together a crafty collage can be a great way to spend time with the family whilst also creating something unique for your home.

Using comic books to create a canvas – or if you’re feeling adventurous, using them for wallpaper – makes a cool addition to a kid’s bedroom or a statement piece for your home Batcave.

Upcycle Some Vintage Beauties

With 1000s of items for everyone at auction, you’re bound to find some great vintage pieces that just need a little TLC to bring them back to life.

Bring a 1960s dresser into the 21st century by sanding it down and adding brightly coloured paint, and statement handles. Add a quirky touch to your dining room by re-upholstering chairs with modern fabric and chic paint or varnish. Statement accents, pops of colour, and tightening up some loose screws here and there will bring your vintage pieces into the modern era and set your home apart from the rest on the street.

Create a Focal Point

A great way to spice up your interior is to create a focal point with statement furniture, artwork, rugs, or a light feature. The impact of a unique piece that suits your personality will bring together the room and help to build accent pieces and accessories that complement your chosen feature.

For film fanatics, sports fans, and lovers of memorabilia – find an amazing range of exclusive pieces from sporting, film, and music history at auction. They’re the perfect way to make a statement and build a unique theme for your room.

Accessories are the exclamation points of an outfit – why should dressing your home be any different to dressing yourself? Pieces like lamps, photo frames, candles, and rugs can change the feel of a room and incorporate your personality.

A mirror is a great way to open your room up and make it seem bigger, and if strategically positioned can reflect your statement pieces and maximise their impact. Cushions are brilliant to spruce up your sofa and can be switched around to complement the seasons; check our handy article on the best way to style your sofa here for more ideas.
