Just ask Dorothy, "There’s no place like home", why not make home the most exquisite yet cozy space possible? Let’s dive into some techniques that can help you showcase the best features of every room in your house. With just a touch of color, a hint of texture, and lots of personality you can transform your home into something spectacular. Here’s a few tips that aren’t a lot of hassle:
ADD SOME COLOR
Neutral schemes are always a safe go to, but if you’re feeling like your room is blah, don’t be afraid to go with a bold color. Do an accent wall that compliments the current color scheme or use furniture or accent pieces to bring a touch of color. Color doesn’t have to mean clutter, you can keep the rest of the room simple and clean but still add the dramatic touch with a few elements.
USE SOME MIRRORS
By adding some mirrors you can bring the light into your space. Stagers often use mirrors to help the room look like it’s much bigger than it is it. Add a few accent mirrors, preferably right across the room from a window, to brighten up your space and keep it from feeling too closed in and choppy.
PLAY WITH ACCESSORIES
We get it, furniture can get expensive, but there is so much you can do with a room just getting creative with accessories. Get some unique decorative pieces and let your room tell a story around them. Hop down to your closest antique store and grab some pieces that are bold. Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx, and Home Goods are my go to spots for unique decorative pieces that are incredibly affordable.
ADD SOME GREEN
Nothing gives a space some life like some life, literally. Add some plants to your rooms, lots of green ones that are easy to keep alive, to add a unique touch to the room. If you are like me and have yet to find that plant that is easy to keep alive you can find faux plants that will do the same trick. Ikea has an awesome assortment some as low as $5! You’d be shocked at how much a room looks “finished” when you add a beautiful plant or hanging basket of succulents to the corner of a room.
EMBRACE THE LIGHT
The natural light, we mean. Don’t block out your windows with heavy drapes or hide them behind furniture. Decorate around your room in a way that compliments the windows and brings the natural light in.
Use fur throws or pillows, use patterns in your fabrics, etc. Don’t be afraid to add unique textures throughout the home. It gives your eyes something to land on as it’s looking around the room. You can even use metallic and yes go ahead and mix them. Don’t over-do it, because then it can get overwhelming. Just get a few textures that compliment each other and put them in clever places around your room.
A tip you’ll hear often, nothing brings the best out in a room then getting rid of all the clutter and junk. If you have a hard time walking around your room or finding things, it may be time to get a few boxes and start cleaning out the things that don’t really belong.
