Spotted for 2018!

New Year Resolutions with Lesser-Spotted

It's hard to believe just how quickly 2017 has come to an end - in fact it seems like it was just yesterday that we were saying a massive good riddance to 2016 and now here we are again - bellies filled with pigs in blankets, chocolate and wine - venturing into the new year as we start to mentally list our goals and resolutions for 2018.

Well, these resolutions start at home... wouldn't you agree?!

The team at Lesser-Spotted have put together their own resolutions for the new year to share with our readers - and some solutions of course!


 

Making an Entrance... into the New Year!

One thing the team at Lesser Spotted plan to do this week is strut into the new year with style by touching up our entrance ways to make a grand first impression on our guests in the New Year! Why not give your space a tidy up with a brand new eye-catching light fixture, a few new decorative items or perhaps a new runner to welcome visitors into your home.

Take a Colour Risk!

It's very easy to get stuck in our ways and play it safe when it comes to colour schemes, but why not liven up your favourite room by taking a risk this year - go on, make it a new year resolution to get the paintbrushes out and dazzle friends and family at your next gathering.

Upgrade on Home Decor!

Be honest, how long have you owned that vase on your window pane? How long has that old painting been hanging there unnoticed?

Time for an upgrade?

Get with the times and treat your home to some original wall art, cushions, a new rug or decorative pieces to spruce the place up a little.

CREATE SOME DRAMA!

We all love a bit of drama and some excitement in our lives, so why not bring it into your home? We have a variety of one-off statement pieces that will make a jaw-dropping first impression to you and your guests. Maybe an elegant chandelier to light up the room, a piece of vintage wall art, or something completely original?

Add Character & History

There's one thing we love most about one-off bespoke pieces that we discover at Lesser-Spotted, and thats the history that comes with every product. From it's age, origin, maker, style etc. - each piece has its own story.

Why not make it a resolution to bring some of that history to your home? Rather than the typical sideboard you'd find in a hallway or entrance way, why not do something original and add character with the furniture in your home - a beautiful antique settle, coffer or marriage bench perhaps? The possibilities are endless, and so are the stories.

Become the Host with the Most

One resolutions I've listed for myself is to spend more time with the family this year. We often get caught up in our busy lives and forget just how special those close to you are - and it's at Christmas time and New Year that we finally get everybody around the table to show our appreciation.

But why can't we do this all year round?

We can.

Put some time aside in 2018 to do some dinner-hosting sessions with family and friends, and become the host with the most with our beautiful range of tableware and accessories.

New Year, New Me, New Look!

Okay, we've all been there at 11.55pm on the 31st Dec thinking, "New Year, New Me" - and very often it refers to our habits, lifestyle or mindset. And hey, what better time is there to start making self improvements than the beginning of the year?

But, have you ever thought about a change of scenery? Why not take this as an opportunity to declutter your life by decluttering your home and giving it a complete makeover, perhaps with a new style? If you're wanting something stylish and edgy, why not opt for an industrial style, or keep things traditional with mid-century modern furnishings? A new look for a new you!

Keep up with 2018's Trends

Here's a goal for Lesser-Spotted, we plan to bring you all this year's new trends as and when they emerge to keep you ahead of the game - as long as you promise to come along for the ride.

According to Swoonworthy, 2018 is already getting creative. GOLD and MIXED-MATERIAL KITCHENS are in! And over at Business Insider, they're talking VINTAGE LIGHTING and FLORAL is back! Plenty to be getting busy with!
