If it were up to us, we’d spend ALL of our money on interior stuff. Bedside tables, wall art, silk bedding… we want it all! But sadly as things stand, we have to pay for stuff like, y’know, food, clothes and rent.
Which is why we’re keen to get all the expert advice about the small ways to make your home feel expensive and grown up, without having to spend a bomb. Whether it’s clearing the clutter or using symmetry in your home – now an interior designer has revealed the one thing you could introduce to make your space more ‘adult’.

Speaking to MailOnline, Rebecca Snowden, interior style advisor at Furniture Choice, explains that bare walls and floors can make a space feel way less homely, and take away any character you might be trying to create.
Obviously when you rent, changing the wall colour isn’t always a possibility – but introducing a rug definitely is. “To completely transform your home from generic to grown up, introduce colour by painting over plain walls or adding a feature rug to your living area,” she explained
“There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to choosing colours, but try to work around any pieces of furniture you plan to hold onto for a while.”
