Be the host with the most with these beaut buys

1 SWEPT AWAY

Great curtains will go a long way to making a room look put together. These Velvet Metallic Geo Eyelet Curtains, from €66, from Next.ie, are a lovely luxury pick. Hang them from a 35mm Hampton curtain pole in Antique Brass, €45.99, from Harrycorry.com, for added vintage glam

 

2 TAP INTO TEXTILES

Spare bedrooms can feel a little forgotten. Adding throws and cushions make them feel cosier and loved. Pick some luxe fabric cushions - like sequins or velvet, and some thick cosy blankets will immediately stitch up the vibe

 

3 STORE MORE

No room for a bed? The Betsey bed-in-a-box, from €550, from Arloandjacob.com is ideal. A compact bed-in-a-box, it folds right away when not in use. A Scandi style clothes rail offers enough space for weekend guests. Add a chaise lounge or bench at the end of the bed so guests have somewhere to use as a dressing area.

 

 

4 PICTURE THIS

Adding affordable artwork to walls creates instant oomph. You can get prints at very affordable prices from places like Desenio.com while simple, effective and cheap frames that still have style can easily be picked up at Penneys and H&M Home.

 

5 LIGHT UP

No to naked bulbs! Shade a central light with this cool Ero drum lampshade, £55, from Oliverbonas.com and add mood lighting on a bedside table with a beautiful table lamp. Some simple accessories like a stylish vase will finish the space.
