BOOKMARK

Buying a home is a feat, congratulations! Now perhaps the home you bought was a resale property, preloved or even new but with construction that isn’t quite contemporary. If this is so, you might need a few ideas for stylish, in-the-now décor to update and upgrade your new place.

We’ve found five homes that were freshened up with a healthy dose of modern fixings that will just amaze and inspire:

If your living room is fitted with lamps that are held up by super sexy sculptures, you know you have arrived! This home is brimming with signature pieces, from flashy lighting fixtures to a modern, gold-washed lounge chair. When upgrading, it’s all about adding new life and fresh energy; and we can certainly see it here.

For homes with lots of space, don’t be afraid to try out different styles as demonstrated in these rooms. We can see a completely eclectic mix of Asian themes, Scandinavian simplicity and a wee bit of experimental impressions. The overall design keeps with the existing charm of the home and plays it up in selected spaces.

Homes with more open spaces can be updated with a little more freedom, and that seems to be the theme with this design gem. Distinctive room separators; trendy, decorative lighting; and oversized pieces really help to fill expansive spaces. Also, you might notice deeper, stronger colours that are perfectly tinted by incandescent lighting.

Updating a sub-sale home may require greater amounts of creativity as you bring youth into a possibly aged setting. Designer lighting fixtures can help with this; our example here uses various types of highly artistic lighting from ceiling drop lights to reflective wall mounts and even a modular hanging lamp, resembling ultra-trendy Ameba lights.

When dealing with dated architecture that isn’t old enough to be ‘vintage cool’ – you can spice the place up with more kicky themes. In this home, industrial-chic is the modern marvel chosen to take it away from being simply basic. Working with its natural spaciousness, designers used clever carpentry, layered lighting and steel-and smog coloured accents to mod this home perfectly.
