We may be moving slowly towards summer (very slowly here in Britain!) but it is still as important as ever to use warmth in your home. This can be through the use of bright colours, Jon's personal favourite has being Orange for some time. Either go bold with a vibrant feature wall colour or wallpaper, on the other hand accent neutrals with feature items within your home; 2 Orange cushions or a plant pot can really brighten up the place.

If bright colours are a little garish for your taste then warm materials can make all the difference. Using natural materials like wood instead of plastic or metal can really help the character of your home. Jon’s top tip is up-cycling. Finding that perfect piece of furniture is rare, so make something how you want it. Jon bought an IKEA TV unit that was the right size and good storage but a little boring for his taste. So after buying some Ash wood and planking it together Jon cut his own, new doors to bring warmth to his room. Not to fret if you don't have the skills or know-how find a local joiner or woodworking relative to knock something together. Take a look at this before-and-after and see what you think.

Again, changes don't have to be so bold. You can really make a difference with a wooden clock or coat rack. Swapping some of the plain and basic items in your home to warmer materials or colours can really make a difference.
