For the past year and a half, I've been on the hunt for ways to spruce up my home.
Along the way, I've realised that almost anything home-related can get pretty damn pricey. But apparently, it doesn't have to be.
Watch: Here's how to make your room look bigger. Post continues after video.
I spoke to Liz Hayward, interior decorator and stylist at Hayward & Co, to quiz her on five ways to make my home look expensive without actually spending that much. Here's what she said.
1. Keep to a maximum of three colours.
Liz explained that one of the easiest tricks to make your home look fancy is to choose a few colours you like and stick to them.
"By refining your colour palette and keeping to a maximum of three colours within any one room, you can easily achieve a space that feels unified," Liz said.
"You can of course still add small accents of colour with personal décor items, but large items should be kept within the chosen palette."
