In the last year alone we’ve spent more time cooped up in our houses than we’ve ever done before, and naturally, it’s becoming a bit dreary. Your humble abode has lost its allure, not because you haven’t cleaned, but because it’s just all becoming a bit too familiar and – quite frankly – drab. Fret not, however, as we’ve put together a little list of pick-me-ups that’ll add some colour, shine, fun, and scent to your home to make it feel fresh and new. Read on to start building your shopping list!
