Black Friday deals for home styling
Chances are you have been spending more time at home than usual this year and found the need for a few changes.
With so many lifestyle product bargains on offer in these Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, property stylist and interior design specialist Deb Lindner, the Mink Home founder and director, says it is the perfect opportunity to think about creating the living space you want.
"Beautiful interiors instantly inspire us and definitely lift our mood, so by surrounding ourselves with lovely furniture, artwork and homewares we can easily transform our daily lives.

"We often talk about upgrading our home but don't always get around to it. Black Friday is the ideal opportunity to make it happen and enjoy the result. Imagine the difference waking up to a fresh, inspiring space every day makes to your mood and outlook for the day."
Lindner says the first thing to do is prioritise.
"Before spending, think carefully about what will make the biggest impact on your everyday life at home.
"Secondly, set a budget. Decide how much you can afford to spend and stick to it. And thirdly, don't forget to measure your spaces carefully before purchasing."
And when it comes to creating a beautiful home, it doesn't mean blowing the bank. "Creating a beautiful space doesn't need to be expensive. Often it's the small things in a home that give us an uplift and brighten our environment," says Lindner.
"Layering in some fresh, new accessories - luxurious scented candles and soaps, coloured vessels, fresh scatter cushions or even a stack of coffee-table books in the right spot can really transform how your room feels.
"If you are in a position to splurge, it might be an opportunity to upgrade your living room seating; the Black Friday sales are the perfect opportunity to find your dream sofa."
Lindner says move away from greys and blacks in favour of brightness, colour and more warmth. "We are seeing the return of softness in our room. Fresh, white interiors are always extremely popular as they really lift our mood but now we are also seeing rich colours both in furniture and accessories - rattan, natural timbers, organic linen, and softer, more handcrafted pieces, curves are everywhere."

"Write yourself a list of all the things you need and make sure to stick to it."
