When you imagine the impossibly luxe decor of your dream home, there are no doubt a few brands that spring to mind. We all have our favourites for luxurious linen, sleek furniture and unique artworks for that gallery wall but when you’re on a budget, it’s not always easy to get the look you’re dreaming of…   


We all know that Groupon makes it easy to enjoy huge discounts on activities all over the world, but did you know that Groupon also offers next-level discounts on homewares, furniture and accessories? The perfect brand to shop with if your home improvement fund’s tight, Groupon is our go-to for making a space look high-end on a budget.  

We looked to our panel of experts for four fail-safe tips to help you transform your space and put together a selection of our Editors’ favourite pieces direct from Groupon, perfect for elevating any room in your home.  

Trick of the light

Keep things light and bright to create a greater sense of space. With pale greys and whites in the mix, you’ll have a fresh foundation to build on. Add mirrors to increase the depth of the room and reflect the natural light from your windows.  

Colour theory

Choose a simple palette and stick to it. Like greens or pinks? Go for muted tones and mix them up with your simple white and grey walls and pieces of furniture. Next choose a luxe accent colour like copper or gold and pick out a few accessories in this tone.    

Texture flex

The secret to making a room look more high end is to layer textures while retaining a minimalist look and feel. Do this with textural fabrics, woodgrain, rugs and cushions. You can also opt for tactile bed linens, one-off pieces in rich velvet and smooth metallic surfaces.    

Add greenery

A well-placed plant can make a room and sometimes fresh flowers, a potted houseplant or a tropical tree can really elevate a space. Consider the colour palette in your room and opt for plants that will complement it or act as a neutral component in the room.

Cool, cool electric blue, that’s the colour of my room. Well, it can be if you know how to follow a few simple interior design rules. Blue is a difficult hue because it’s a bold and sometimes brooding tone that has the potential to dominate a space…   


The trick with any shade of blue is to opt for statement blocks of colour rather than small accents – like you might with pinks and metallic tones.   

First, find your preferred shade of blue. Teal is having a moment right now but of blue-green isn’t your thing, consider a luxe navy or a bright electric blue.   

Then consider how you’re going to incorporate a blue block into your space. You can paint an accent wall – this is great to making any room look instantly more high-end but be sure to stick to a single wall as deep blues can make a small space look smaller.  

If you’re not quite ready to crack out the paintbrushes, opt for a swathe of blue by way of a rug, a decadent velvet sofa or a boxy armchair. In the bedroom, blue headboards, throws and curtains are winners too.

The belt bag is one of those trends that shouldn’t work but really does. Those infamous styles by Gucci and Miu Miu dominated Instagram last year and put hands-free accessories back on the map…   


The ‘90s feels quickly took over the street style game with designers including Versace, Pucci, JW Anderson and Marc Jacobs creating iterations of the fanny pack and soon enough, luxe-looking affordable options were out in force too.

We decided to road test both designer and affordable belt bags to find out whether a Gucci bag is really worth the investment, or whether it’s better to save… 

SPEND

Belt bags are not going anywhere so this will be an investment you'll enjoy for many years to come. Whether it's winter, fall or in the middle of summer you know you can wear this bag with anything in closet. The versatility is strong with this one.

Furthermore, an investment piece from the likes of Gucci or Prada is always a good idea because these babies last forever. The quality of a designer handbag is what makes it so timeless.

Our final reason for loving the high-end options? They’re all a little different. A Gucci Marmot is a Gucci Marmot but there so many iterations to choose from. Opt for embellished styles, a touch or velvet or classic quilting to match your wardrobe and your personality. There’s just something so great about feeling original. 

SAVE

No matter how amazing the product is, it’s great to have options. Plus, with this accessory fixed to your waist, other people are far less likely to notice its lack of designer logo. This is an excuse to double up and opt for a few different colors and styles.

Why choose one bag when you can invest in three or four? Go for a heart-shaped version for date night, a boxy style for the weekend and a cool embellished piece for festival season and your summer vacations. 

Sure these pieces might not stand the test of time in the same way as a designer belt bag, but you can be certain you’ll have a style for every occasion and no one will be any the wiser.

There are a few age-old interior design tricks that always work, no matter what your home looks like or how spacious it is – see upping the cosiness factor in winter with twinkly lights or adding a little interest with a gallery wall. Changing up your space to suit a new season is easy, you just have to know a few of the golden rules… 


One of the most important tricks is knowing just how powerful colour can be and knowing how to work a trend to your advantage. This season it’s all about yellow – sunshine tones, mustard hues, deep orangey palettes, yellow home decor is everywhere.  

Now, we’re not saying you should rush in with the Dulux and paint all four walls yellow. On the contrary, if you want to work this bold tone in your space, you’ll need to be careful to balance it with the rest of your décor. The key here is using yellow as an accent colour. You can do this in three ways… 

Opt for bright yellow accessories like candles, cushions and artworks to offset the rest of the room. A pop of colour will lend the space a cheerful, eclectic vibe. 

Invest in a statement piece that will act as the only yellow focal point in the room. A velvet sofa, chair, a pair of yellow curtains or sunflower-toned doors, cabinets and shelves will draw the eye and pep up the room in no time. 

Lastly, for something a little more permanent you can get creative with paint and paper. Invest in a cool roll of printed wallpaper from the likes of Cole & Son, Matthew Williamson or House of Hackney and bring the sunshine in on a feature wall or papered surface – this works especially well in the bedroom or bathroom.

Velvet

For understated glam factor pair a crisp white tee with a velvet swimsuit. Add a pair of slides, cool sunnies and a baseball hat for a sports-luxe twist. 

Prints and patterns 

Channel your inner boho queen by mixing and matching your patterns. Go for a patterned one-piece paired with a white kimono, slides and a straw hat.

Sure dark velvets in luxe, thick textures are the staple of winter months – we see them everywhere, from the runway to our favourite influencer’s homes – but what about styling velvet in summer? Trust us when we say there’s a place for velvet in every home during the sunnier months, but there are a few rules to follow if you want to get it right… 


Go brighter

Opting for blush pinks, muted mustards and pale blues is the way to go. If you can’t quite commit to full drapes or a velvet sofa, mix things up by adding velvet cushions, throws and tonal accents to your existing décor.

Get textural

Full-on velvet can be a bit much for anyone to handle so mix things up for the new season by juxtaposing your velvet pieces with lighter fabrics, like linen and cotton in light tones. Create a tactile feast for the senses with velvet cushions, woven rugs and lightweight throws.

Statement flair

Velvet is by no means the subtlest of materials so incorporating a statement piece for the rest of your interior to play off is always a good idea. Investing in a plush sofa, velvet armchair, pouf or footstool or a statement headboard is a great way to lend your space a little pizazz and get your velvet hit in one fell swoop.

Dakota Johnson belongs to Hollywood royalty but made her own name, starring in Fifty Shades of Grey and later becoming a Gucci muse. Now the actress is set to star in the much-anticipated adaptation of the horror film Suspiria. 


She'll be heading up the cast of the 1977 classic alongside Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia Goth and an unrecognizable Tilda Swinton. The Fifty Shades of Grey star is known for her role choices as well as her understated style. 

For red carpet she opts for long silhouettes,like the white Proenza Schouler number she rocked at a screening of Call Me By Your Name, in New York. Usually you'll find her in Gucci, whether it's the Met Gala, Fashion Week or the Oscars, where she donned a show-stopping gold gown… 

For her off-duty looks you'll find her sporting a simple pair of denim cut-offs with a plain shirt, or slogan tee,  a fedora hat, sunnies and an indie scarf. Her hack for remaining chic at all times is adding designer accessories such as an oversized Gucci tote, a velvet duster coat and Gucci brogues.

A new season means it's time for a little wardrobe update. And what better way to start than by refreshing the shoe section of your closet. A little seasonal cleaning is in order before purchasing any new styles so throw out, donate or hand over anything that hasn't served you well and keep the shoes that you can't wait to wear again.


If you're noticing any significant losses, take your notepad out and describe your needs. You may need to add monochrome options, high-heels or comfy slides to build the perfect SS18 capsule wardrobe. 

Maybe you want to adopt one of the statement trends of the season and choose a style embellished with feathers or sequins? Velvet slippers are in and so are wrap fronts and delicate laces. Whatever your style, don't worry we have you covered. 

Which shoes should I buy this summer? 

We recommend choosing a pair of flat slides that you can dress down with a sexy slip dress. Try an embellished version with feathers or knots and wear them with a pair of straight-leg jeans. 

This is also a great look to pack for festival season and for all those mini summer getaways; perfect or daytime strolls and evening drinks alike. 

A sandal is an obvious investment for summer, but try a twist on the classic. Chunky flatform soles, ankle wraps and block heels are all set to be huge this season, so try something new and elevate your summer line-up to new heights.

Summer is on the horizon and let’s face it, our penchant for palm trees is still going strong. In fact, we’re embracing the tropical trend and going full cabana with rum on the bar cart, tropical tunes in our headphones and warm-weather plants filling up our living rooms. 


But hold on just a second… Lest you want your home to look more like a ‘60s themed hotel suite, there are a few rules to follow when opting for this trend in your home. Our Editors have put together a few simple tips on how to nail the look, whatever your budget and no matter the size of your space.

Unless you love that kitsch, busy look, go for a single print and stick to it. Palm print wallpaper is a great way to channel the tropical trend and some of the world’s coolest designers have created their own signature versions. Keep the rest of your room pared down for a sleek contrast. 

Mix up your textures. Things are going to look a little over the top if all rattan everything is your rule. Instead, mix dark woods and maybe a little velvet for a cool, plush finish. Add a rattan chair or screen for a cool Cuban twist. 

Use accessories to your advantage. Create a sense of sunshine with big, light-reflecting mirrors, metallic accents, cool cushions and cocktail glasses. 

Invest in some house plants to complete the tropical look – don’t worry if you don’t get on with real plants, there are some great faux options available which are much more manageable and look great. 

Create a chic summer look at home and indulge in a little staycation with the picks from our edit below…

It’s been 20 years since Princess Diana's death yet her undisputed elegance and inimitable sense of style still wow the world. Her iconic collection of garments includes Victor Edelstein's unforgettable pink velvet gown, famously worn at the White House when the Princess danced with John Travolta, and that striking wedding dress that will forever go down in history. 


The truly fascinating thing about the Princess' style is that even today you'll find it to be quite relevant. Sure, we may have said goodbye to shoulder pads but mom jeans, polka dot dresses and baseball jackets are very much on trend and are all elements that defined her classic sense of style. 

Check our list of her most iconic looks in the gallery and scroll below to recreate her style for yourself…

Last year brought us the statement sneaker with wrap fronts and knotted laces but 2018 has taken this ultra-cool trend to elegant new heights, with from Jeffrey Campbell to Loeffler Randall offering up knotted mules and pumps.


As we’re partial to a statement shoe, we’ve been crushing on every iteration, from velvet slides to spike-heeled mules. This gorgeous trend is a winner for spring and summer, with knot-front footwear complementing just about every look out there.

Try teaming a pair of knotted flats with your favourite jeans, or for an office-appropriate look, team your block-heeled twist-front mules with a simple midi dress. Browse our gallery above for inspiration and shop our edit of the best below…

Last year we saw an array of jungle and tropical-inspired prints, flamingo hues and metallics in the most photographed homes in the globe. This year, however, designers are opting for a little less frivolity and choosing warm, cosy colours with the power to make a home a true haven. 


Try our pick of the big interiors trends for 2018… 

Rich tones and hues 

Even though grey is still among the designer favourites, colours are richer this year, whether on furniture, walls or bedding. Moody colours – such as violet, navy and emerald green – are taking centre stage. For richness,  opt for velvet accents to show off the hues. 

Dark wood 

Furniture is turning to the dark side this year, stepping away from the pale Scandi-inspired woods of seasons past. The darker shades infuse a space with a sense of vintage glam and work beautifully against metallics. Add a fusion of walnut, gold, brass or marble for the perfect amalgamation of natural materials. 

Wanderlust 

Exotic cities influence interior trends when it comes to carpets and accessories. This season, go for earthy shades of clay, terracotta and ochre and mix your textures. Add a few plants and channel a tropical cabana in your living room. 

Artisanal touches 

Just like fashion, interiors are all about natural textures this season. The handmade feel is gaining ground with materials such as rattan and linen stealing the limelight. Try adding natural and handcrafted pieces to your home for a luxe touch. Are you ready to infuse your tired digs with new life?
