The rise of new builds across the country has been great for helping first time buyers get on the housing ladder. The one downside to these estates is that most of the houses tend to be exact copies of each other, lacking the character you would get with an older property. This has seen a trend emerging of creating unique interiors to counteract this. Unique designs, coupled with cherished items will create a room where you can relax and enjoy your own individual style. It’s time to Personalise your home.

Sofas tend not to be extravagantly unique but that doesn’t mean you can’t find one to set you apart. Bold colour choices are easier to work with than you’d think, especially if you’re starting with a blank canvas. Jewel tones like on our Cirrus sofa work fantastically with darker colour schemes, or go with bright pastels for lighter interiors.



Flooring is a great place to add something a little different to your home. Move away from the standard laminate boards and find a pattern that appeals to you. We have some great vinyl floor tiles that allow you to incorporate more interesting styles into your home, or choose an unusual laminate instead.


Everywhere you look, there are fabulous, unique wallpapers to be had. Wave goodbye to magnolia walls and invest in wallpaper that fits your personality perfectly.  A statement feature wall is an absolute must when creating something that little bit different. There are endless styles available that would work fantastically for this trend so have fun choosing. We’re loving the Urban Funky range from Today Interiors for feature walls with a twist.

Outline Lamp

Accessorising is the easiest way to set your home apart. Mix favourite older possessions with new one off or unique pieces, like our Outline statement table lamp. This is your chance to create rooms full of intimacy and happiness; make your possessions the star of the room, rather than allowing them to fade into the background.

Clement Browne Tracked Window Shutters (2)

Curtains are so last season! Shutters offer a much more distinctive style and are available in a huge variety of colours so you’re sure to find something complimentary. We offer a range of Clement Browne made to measure shutters so you can be sure to get exactly what you want! They’re also more effective at blocking out light than you may think, especially if paired with curtains or blinds too.
