Oak furniture fits into a wide range of aesthetic designs, which also makes it incredibly versatile.

A really easy way to instantly update your house is to change your window treatments. Curtains take a lot of beating and wear and tear so revive your house with new ones. If you want to create a modern and seamless feel in your property you may actually want to choose plantation shutter instead. These have become increasingly popular in recent years and look super luxe. If you do decide to go for curtains, though, think carefully about the fabric. Natural linens, silk and cotton look plush in an array of opulent colours. And always make sure they are lined for extra quality.
