After Christmas when all the decorations have been taken down things can look a little dull and a simple way to freshen the home is to change soft furnishings, add ornaments and new artworks. Two or three key pieces can be all it takes to completely change the look of a room. Here are a few of my favourites. 

INSPIRATION: Scandinavian Chic; Mid Century design classics; geometric patterns; clean contemporary and modern  

KEY ELEMENTS: Soft chalky pastels particularly dusty rose, turquoise and soft grey; origami; smokey coloured glass; typeface; copper; black; geometric; marble; wire; felt and blonde wood
