Read on to find out more about how to get the look and how to shop for homewares on a budget.

Bold Prints

The great thing about a newbuild home is that most of the time you are getting a totally blank canvas which you can style to make your own. Using bold prints, whether that be on a cushion, in a frame or a statement wallpaper, can be an excellent way of adding some excitement to your space.

In the one-bedroom show home at L&Q at Huntley Wharf, Haus sourced a rust-coloured beaded geometric shape wallpaper from John Lewis which makes a bold feature wall in the open-plan living space as a clever way of distinguishing between relaxing and dining. Bespoke cushions continue the look to the sofa area.

Recreate the look with some bold, cushion covers from H&M Home – guaranteed to add a pop of colour to any space.

Statement headboard

Using large styling items can make a space feel bigger. Opt for a statement headboard and maximise the vertical space in your bedroom.

At L&Q at Huntley Wharf, potential buyers can view this interiors technique in action, as implemented by Haus.

The bespoke, oversized headboard in the one-bedroom show home gives a sense of height to the area above the bed. Sink into slumber in stylish and sumptuous surroundings.

Dunelm has a number of sleek headboards to choose from, which is are a cost-effective way of adding a touch of glamour and opulence to a bedroom.

Bathroom Styling

Often fitted with functional fixtures, fittings and appliances, styling your bathroom to keep it feeling fresh and elegant is all the more important.

Here, practicality is key. Pick a theme or colour palette to run throughout the space, which can be weaved in across the decorative items.

In this bathroom, Haus have cleverly used a framed print as an anchor for the room’s colour scheme, which is then echoed in the colours of the towels and patterned vase on a shelf. Adding some faux plants can be a great way of adding a pop of green to a bathroom.
