FRESHENING UP THE HOME – Part 4

LIGHTING

Possibly one of the more overlooked but seriously important parts of your house. Good lighting will make such a huge difference to your living space.

Check all your lights and make sure the bulbs are working. Carefully wipe exposed lighting with a damp cloth.

Parchment lamp shades can be wiped with a damp cloth and fabric shades can be vacuumed.

Don’t just think about the practical side of lighting. Well thought out lighting is another way to completely change the look and feel of a room. Bad lighting is not only bad for your eyes, it’s bad for your soul! Use lighting to brighten a dark corner or to highlight a favourite artwork or piece of furniture. It’s easy to make a unique style statement by simply moving your lamps, shooting light up a dark corner or softly illuminating a quiet area.

MAGAZINES

I know, this is a tough one, but it needs to be done… sort through your magazines and turf out the ones you don’t need. Reverse Garbage in Sydney will take old magazines, you can just drop them off.

So, now that you’ve done all the work early in the season, it’s time to sit back and enjoy the season in your renewed living space!
