WHEN you live with the same furniture, wallpaper or décor for a long time, you eventually stop seeing it, and the space around you begins to feel dull and boring.

To fall in love with your home (or office) again you can easily and inexpensively maximise everything you already have.

We found the coolest and simplest ways to turn your house into a sanctuary again.

• Design your own gallery.

You probably already have a wall full of family photos or certificates, but have you ever thought about sprucing it up by creating your own gallery or filling an entire wall with some of your favourite quotes, mirrors, statement or sentimental t-shirts or anything that makes you feel good? • Create a “novelty wall” with various kinds of wall sconces - no matter how random they are. Just keep the rest of the room toned down.

Extra tip: If you’ve travelled a lot or have lots of souvenirs, use them to create a memory wall with photos and knick knacks. It will be attractive to guests and it makes for a great conversation starter.

• Reuse holiday décor. Strings lights are a holiday favourite, but they can be used for a lot more. So if you have string lights tucked away in a box of Christmas decorations, take them out immediately. Fairy lights and/or string lights are great for creating a soft and magical space.
