7 Items That Will Give Your Home an Instant Makeover
1. 100% Linen Bedding in Peach and Lilac
New bed linen is one decor update that will pay for itself in the long run. If you’ve already got beige or white linen, now is the time to choose a more vibrant combination.
Although you might consider yourself a maximalist when it comes to bright colours, welcoming brighter hues into your sleep sanctuary could be the mood-booster you never knew you needed. Look no further than our Peach and Lilac combination, which is like a sophisticated breathe of fresh air. The two pastel colours are delicate and delightful, and can subtly brighten up your room in an oh-so-chic way.
Check out Josh and Jenna Densten’s The Makers home tour to see what the colour combination looks like in a well-styled room.

2. 100% Linen Scalloped Napkins in Pink Clay and Turmeric
We all know the '80s wave is the biggest interior trend of 2021, so what better way to jump on this trend while injecting personality and freshening up your dining room than with our Scalloped Napkins? The beauty of our Our Pink Clay and Turmeric colourway is that you don’t need to put in the extra effort of purchasing other bright table items - simply pair it with a white linen tablecloth, white dinnerware and a few citrus fruits scattered around the table. Voila!

3. 100% Linen Waffle Bath Towel in Sage
Worn out, stained (hello, fake tan) or damp towels can make your bathroom look and feel old, plus, they don’t make the best impression on guests. Invest in lush styles like our ultra-plush 100% linen waffle bath towels to add a touch of luxury to the space.
We’ve obsessed with the waffle bath towel in Sage. This colourway is calming and elevating, and a neutral hue that will never go out of style, so rest assured you can keep it out year-round. Plus, it looks even better when paired with some plants and its matching hand towels.

4. Amber Kingi x Bed Threads ‘Juliette’ Print
Ahhh, art - it instantly elevates a space and injects a major dose of personality into an otherwise underwhelming room. Plus, it’s a landlord-friendly way to update your place, without having to renovate.
While we’ve previously rounded up eight of the best emerging Australian artists whose work you can still pick up for less than $1000, we absolutely love the work of self-taught artist Amber Kingi. Her exclusive Bed Threads ‘Juliette’ Print is thoughtful and considered, cast in earthy shades of rust and terracotta. The beauty of this print is in its simplicity: clean lines, harmonious colours and a woman pictured content with herself on her own. It works well as part of a gallery wall, or framed on its own and propped up on a sideboard or desk. Best of all, it’s budget-friendly.

5. Iggy and Lou Lou Amphora Vase in White Sand
You only need to scroll through Instagram or flip through interior magazines to see ceramics are becoming increasingly popular. Placed on a buffet table or by the bed on a nightstand, they make for the ideal focal point to any shared living space or the perfect accompaniment to your sleep sanctuary. And just like wall art, it’s a landlord-approved way to update a room because all it requires is a flat surface.
The only downside is show-stopping ceramics can leave a heavy dent in your wallet, which is why we love sharing the affordable work of incredible Australian ceramicists on our Shop. Just take Iggy and Lou Lou’s Amphora Vase as an example. Handcrafted in Australia from local clay, this piece features a slim neck with a small opening at the top, which curves into a rounded body before tapering back to a flat base. This piece can hold tall flowers but makes just as much of a statement on its own. You can shop the entire Iggy and Lou Lou range here.

6. Assouline's Miami Beach by Horacio Silva
If you’re looking for the perfect coffee table book, look no further than Assouline’s Miami Beach by Horacio Silva. The bright yellow, pink and aqua cover is enough to instantly update any room, but it’s also what’s inside that counts. The 304-page tome is full of travel inspiration and packed with stunning images of white-sand beaches, palm trees and orange canopies. Really, it’s like a trip to Miami - without the price tag.

7. 100% Linen Throw in Rust
On the bed as an extra layer of warmth, draped over the living room couch as an accessory or wrapped around you like a cosy blanket, there’s no denying the fact that a throw is a home essential.
We can’t get over our Rust Throw, which feeds warmth and energy into any setting to create a cosy, homely environment. Reminiscent of balmy summer nights or wintry evenings spent fireside, this colourway will please year-round.
