I’m happy to have my designer friend Fiona here on the blog to share simple ways to brighten up a room coming into the winter months.

By using one element, for example: pom poms, you can change the look of a room which can be fun for a change.
A Rainbow Room
Gather 3 or 4 bright items you already own — a gorgeous dress, stripey socks, a toy, box, blanket; ribbons plaited or wooden toys stacked — and feature around the room.
Use a pom pom garland to make letters (I used this gorgeous cashmere garland from flowerchild.com.au or you can make your own). Shape the garland into letters and take quick shots on your phone or camera. It doesn’t have to be a name; WELCOME or HAPPY work just as well. lf your little one wants to help, you could get really keen and do the entire alphabet.
Print your pictures of the coloured lettering onto photo cards, or enlarge on A4 photo paper.
Either frame or simply stick up your art like I did using washi tape in bright spots.
