Feeling creative - and handy with a needle and thread? These two ideas are a breeze for even novices to sewing especially since we’ll provide the upholstered footstool (http://bit.ly/1GzTKkn) or headboard (http://bit.ly/1Jfc607) in our fabric or your own, and you can simply sew on ready-made flourishes.

Got some spare time coming up? Why not try these quick and simple transformations to turn your home from so-so to sensational?
1 Give painted furniture (http://bit.ly/1Iecnv8) a touch of glamour by cutting a piece of wallpaper or beautiful wrapping paper out to fit the top. You can paste it in place and varnish it to protect it – or have a piece of glass cut.
2 Want to update your bathroom? Here’s a clever idea – and it needn’t take more than an hour to do if you’re handy with a paint brush. Use a stencil for a fail-safe approach.
3 Got the paintbrush out? You can order our furniture ready painted, then simply add your own artistic flourish to create a vintage country look. Pasted and varnished wallpaper (think decoupage) would work here, too.

Did you know that The Dormy House was started by John Valenzia who made furniture in his garage, which he sold to local customers. The instant table was John's first big hit. Did you have one? We'd love to know...

PS The Dormy House is proud to still be a family company, 30+ years on!

Give your home a beside-the-sea feel with these simple strategies.
1 Paint shelving http://bit.ly/1NCvNyx in nautical blue.
2 Choose tongue and groove panelling or a wallpaper that fakes the weathered wood look.
3 Give a staircase a makeover in blue and white.
4 Opt for fabrics in sand and sea colours http://bit.ly/1HBzkhK. This cotton stripe works for upholstery and soft furnishings. 
Thanks, housetohome.co.uk for pics 1 and 2; and Pinterest for pic 3.

Fan of French style? Take a look at these ways to give your rooms Gallic gorgeousness:
1 Try a Louis style armchair http://bit.ly/1UcNqcG. Not only is it beautiful, but it can help your living room look more spacious as you can see the floor beneath.
2 Smarten up round the dining table with ornate upholstered chairs http://bit.ly/1f5o5S6.
3 Indulge in kitchen shelves filled with shapely tableware and glasses. (Thanks, Pinterest)
4 A classic French design http://bit.ly/1LX6vdf is the perfect sofa for a bedroom with its elegant outline. (Inspiration from housetohome.co.uk)

Want to make your home office feel more like a comfortable, pretty room than a work space? Here’s how to do it The Dormy House way:
1 Choose a desk that looks like it could double up as a dressing table and get it painted in a soft, country-style shade (http://bit.ly/1Jt42tu).
2 Add cushions to your seating – bolster cushions are really useful for supporting tired backs (http://bit.ly/1CErYm5).
3 Choose a desk lamp that’s pretty to look at and functional, too – our shades can be made in your fabric or from our own fabrics (http://bit.ly/1Nq3288).
4 Keep the room neat with a decorative noticeboard – painted and upholstered to suit your scheme (http://bit.ly/1dsD9Ys).
5 Filing ruining the look of the room? Invest in some pretty box files and hide it all away. Even a pile of them on your desk will look pretty (http://bit.ly/1C1HygS).

Love a pastel or pale room scheme but want to pack a punch? We love these simple schemes. Here’s why they work:

1 The dining room has a painted circle on the wall in one shade darker that draws the eye and creates interest without dominating the space.
2 The home office has a graduated colour scheme, with the darker shades in the lower part of the room and the lighter ones towards the ceiling. It’s a great way to create a lofty feel in a low-ceilinged room, too.
3 Alcoves in a slightly darker shade than the chimney breast makes the central part of the wall shine – a great way to create a feature wall subtly.
4 Pale blue upholstery against a white and mauve background? ALWAYS a winner for a modern country feel – we love it.

Spending some of the school holidays revamping your child's room for the school year ahead? Here are just some of our clever studying-friendly ideas:

1 Shelves to go over a pedestal desk - they'll make the desk tidier, give your child somewhere to display and store their work - and they can be painted to suit your scheme (http://bit.ly/1HR1Pln)
2 A desk gallery - perfect for stashing away pens/rubbers/sharpeners/you name it, it simply sits on the back of your child's desk (http://bit.ly/1LlY1hB)
3 A hideaway study cupboard: doors open, it's all to hand; doors shut, the room stays neat (http://bit.ly/1LlYhwO)
4 A modular desk - ours can be built into numerous configuration to suit your space and needs (http://bit.ly/1CJhK9q)

We love, love, love anything that helps cut down on household clutter – especially with the school holidays coming up. What do you think of these ideas?
1 Make more of wall space with a peg shelf http://bit.ly/1H4lelr above a bed or desk in a child’s room. They’re ideal for the hallway, too.
2 Create a utility area with a tall, narrow cupboard http://bit.ly/1NC51GD for the ironing board, broom and more, and a peg rail http://bit.ly/1JBRsIC to hang dusters etc. Pic via housetohome.co.uk
3 With plenty of stash space inside, a bench seat http://bit.ly/1C59u3e makes a speedy tidy up possible.
4 Stop the spread of stuff in the bathroom with a hideaway cupboard http://bit.ly/1LM1irK that’ll conceal towels, shampoo, soap, bath and bodycare buys, make-up…

Like the idea of giving rooms a pretty traditional twist with just one change? Try these tips:
1 Swap out a plain headboard for one in a cute floral print http://bit.ly/1CN4U4v
2 Go for a gingham cloth for the dining table.
3 Create a plate display on the wall. They needn’t match; a colour theme will mean they work together.
4 Choose an eiderdown to dress a bed http://bit.ly/1GQFBjQ

Thanks Pinterest pinners for images 2 and 3.

Want a new look for your #bathroom? Here are a few of our favourite ways to give your bathroom a quick update:

1 Use a pretty wallpaper to turn yours from plain to pretty - and if you've got a rolltop, paint the underside to co-ordinate.
2 Hang a pair of vintage mirrors instead of one large one to add character.
3 Decorate a screen and use it to hide the laundry basket or to give the bath extra privacy.
4 Use fabric to hide the bottom of the basin - you can hide bathroom clutter behind it, too!

Find wallpaper, mirrors, screens and fabrics on our website: www.thedormyhouse.com. Thx to housetohome.co.uk for the pix
