Entering into a brand new spanking decade, I’d say it’s time to refresh our body and mind and also our homes. 

You don’t need to take all the below suggestions into serious action, they’re ideas, some inspiration for the upcoming 12 months if you’re renovating or keen to update your space, so please take from this what  you will.
