No. 1.

Bring the outdoors in...open the window.

Any others?

Want your mantlepiece to look quirky?

Pin up some roadkill.

Antlers are so 2012

Don't fuck with the curtains open

Particularly if you're in fancy dress or wearing in a new gimp mask

Twigs are called twiggy shit for a reason

The reason is they are shit

Sex dungeons don't need 'brightening up'

Interesting Namechange, but I am afraid that doesn't quite meet my rigourous standards for actual design tips....

Keep the leftover Clementines from Christmas in the fruit bowl. Soon they will naturally get a white snow effect dusting

foslady, that is so of the moment. Repurposing dead fruit!

Want to brighten a dark room?

Turn the lights on!

Want a minimalist house? Hire a skip and chuck out 75% of what you own

Oh I like the lights one.

And a skip. Who knew MN could be so creative?

Did you mean to sound so gauchely creepy, Namechange?

Throws. Lots of throws. They needn't be confined to chairs and couches; there's a pile of crap on the landing that has been artfully transformed into a Mysterious Pile Of Crap by the addition of a throw.

Mysterious piles of Crap!

Genius.

Make your home feel by opening your home to all of the local children.

Am intrigued as to what your home might be feeling once opened to all the feral randoms delightful local urchins?

Love these, like the viz tips

A Labrador.

They can look really sweet draped over soft furnishings and cover multiple Slack Alice housekeeping failings.

I have a Labrador <insouciant shrug>

would a Persian cat do the same thing, Beers?

You'd need two or three to cover the same area, but yes, it could work.

Want to make a room appear larger?

hallucinogenic drugs will do the trick.

Turn you bath into a jacuzzi by eating a copious amount of baked beans half an hour before running a bath.

Or just pop the labrador in before you?

Cute instagram opportunity?

fox, oh yes. marvellous! I did actually LOL.

The pile of ironing is actually modern art in the corner. It cost alot of money.

Yup. It says something very meaningful about contemporary overuse of scarce resources, exploitation of cotton workers and existential ennui at the exigencies of modern life.

You can't say room now it's a "space"

A cooking space, a resting space and a relaxation space.

I don't want to hear what you do with your spaces namechange.
