How to Make a Room Look Instantly Better

Pretty fancy, huh?
Pretty fancy, huh?

I’m crap at interior design, but sometimes – by accident – something just works. I got this vase for my birthday and I’ve been wanting to use it ever since. Yesterday, driving through Franschoek, these amazing arum lilies were everywhere. I got out the car and picked a whole bunch (you’re allowed to, they belong to the president), and put two of the longest in this vase (which, if I’m not mistaken, is from the Home Store). It was too big for the table so I plonked it down here and have been immensely pleased with myself ever since. Sometimes it takes a very small detail to make a room look fab.
