|Keeping the family home and happy and creative place|
It can keep be hard enough keeping the home ship-shape without worrying about whether it's fashionable enough. However, there are a few things that you can do to avoid looking like you live in a relic from a bygone era.
In other words, chuck out the chintz. Many people are going for the classy Scandinavian look as featured by the wonderfully chic Nordic Design blog where minimalism is the order of the day.

With clean white walls, a predominance of warming wood tones, and a sense of sleek functionality, it's a great and cost-effective way to give your family home a makeover. Storage spaces can be easily created and modified through some cheap and adaptable storage blocks. And if you're feeling it's a touch sterile, add a bit of natural flora to bring a bit of life into your interior.
Bedrooms can also be one of the areas that can suffer in family spaces as they tend to become cramped with leftover artefacts and possessions. So why not indulge in a bunkbed with extra cupboard spaces for the kids, or maybe splash out on a divan base bed with a lovely custom made mattress for yourself to open up further storage areas.
