Big Difference

Making small changes to your home can make a big difference. That’s why we’ve teamed up with interior designer Julia Kendell to show you how you can transform your home in under 2 hours for less than £100.

Transform your study for less than £100


We all have rooms with multiple functions, by clearly zoning each area and creating lots of storage Julia transformed a cluttered and chaotic room into a bright and coordinated study and playroom space for the whole family to enjoy.

Transform your bedroom in under 2 hours


The bedroom in this Victorian terrace was neutral and plain. By upcycling the furniture to create storage and adding bespoke accents and carefully chosen accessories, Julia has created a cosy and private sanctuary with deep colours and feature lighting.

Transform a child's bedroom for less


Making the step from nursery to toddler’s bedroom is a great opportunity to be playful and creative with design. In this room Julia themes a little boy’s bedroom around his favourite elephant picture, cars and burst of sunshine yellow. These small changes can make a big difference.
