With winter now behind us and warmer days ahead (we hope!), refreshing your home can be a great way to welcome in the new seasons. Brighter colours open up our homes, as well as re-energising the space. Choosing the right homewares can bring a whole new look to your home without having to do much work.

Choosing Balmain homewares

Quality homewares are a key part of any home, and choosing the right pieces can make all the difference. Here are a few tips for finding the perfect pieces for your home:

1. Think about your style. What kind of atmosphere do you want to create? Traditional or modern? Eclectic or classic? There are endless options when it comes to choosing homewares, so find what suits you and your lifestyle best.

2. Consider your budget. Not everything has to be expensive, and there are plenty of affordable options out there if you’re looking for something specific.

3. Consider your needs. What specific amenities do you need in your home? Think about what features are important to you and choose items accordingly.

With warmer tones making way for fresh blues, greens, yellows, oranges and sharp whites, it’s the right time to think about a mini spring/summer makeover in the Inner West.
