There’s no doubt we’re living through strange times.
Embarking on the morning coffee run. Popping to the shops for a good mooch. Seeing out a long week in your favourite haunt, surrounded by all your besties.
Everything we knew has been flipped. And for so many of us, adjusting to our new isolated lives has been difficult. It’s a struggle that’s particularly magnified here on our beloved Island, where our sense of community means so much to us.
Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone? (Thank you, Joni Mitchell!)
Though we’re more physically apart than ever, we’ve all been brought together in our efforts to protect society’s most vulnerable. We share a single powerful purpose: wash your hands, stay indoors and save lives.
While we’re all getting used to the new normal, we’ve temporarily shut our showroom’s doors here at Lifestyle Furniture. However, our wonderful team is still on hand to help you source the perfect piece for your home. It just might take a little longer than usual…!
And while you’re safe indoors, we also want to inspire you.
Is there any sweeter feeling than pulling back the curtains first thing, fully expecting another cold and murky morning, only to be met with warming rays of Manx sunshine?
Spring is in full bloom. And yes, it’s not quite the season we were all expecting. Luckily, there’s still so much you can do to let the light in!
Here are five top tips to refresh your home’s look this spring, creating a bright and breezy vibrant space ready for the sunnier months.
Grab a cuppa, snuggle up, and let your creativity flow.
1. Shelf Life
Subtle and elegant. Weird and wonderful.
Whatever your style, a new eye-catching object or ornament can liven up the most barren of bookcases, mantelpieces and coffee tables.
Lovely to look at—and wonderful conversation starters!
2. Flower Power
The easiest way to freshen up a room? Bring the blossoming outdoors in.
There’s nothing like the natural beauty of flowers and plants to add that spring fresh feel, with vivid colours and scents flowing into every corner of your home.
3. Revivify with Rugs
Think of a rug as the final ingredient that brings a room together.
Be bold. Be brilliant. Experiment with zesty colours and striking patterns for vibrant bursts of indoor sunshine.
4. Sofa? So Good!
Has your couch seen better days? Perhaps it’s time for an upgrade.
‘Chunky’ furniture is particularly trendy in 2020, making deep, super-cosy, sink-in sofas a homely and stylish choice.

5. New Bed Time
What could be more refreshing than a good night’s sleep? A solid 7-8 hours can boost your mood, keep your heart healthy, and help you deal with the stresses of everyday life.
And studies show you can get up to 42 minutes extra sleep in a brand new bed. So, when you choose a comfy new bed and mattress it isn’t just a luxury—it’s an investment in your health and wellbeing!
