Before starting to decorate a room, we always have to make sure that we’ve got covered all the basic elements starting with the furniture such as couches and coffee tables, and ending with the smaller items such as candles or plants. But what about that something extra, which makes a room special?
Maybe you’re a bit conservative when it comes to decorating your home, but the thing is that all-white or all-beige rooms can feel a little lifeless and sterile. Why not, besides the monochromatic schemes, opt for injecting a little energy by adding some splashes of color on accessories or a piece of painted furniture?
Something that Adds Life to the Space
Believe it or not, houseplants always work their magic when placed in the right spot. Our suggestion for you? Try out some succulents because there are very easy-to-grow houseplants. The alternative? Give faux houseplants a chance because they can also look very realistic.
Fresh-cut flowers can also do the work and they can even last up to two weeks if you take care of them properly. Make your place feel homier with a small vase of flowers on the kitchen counter, or a houseplant by a sunny window.
A Touch of Black
Do you have the feeling that something’s missing in your room? Well, try adding something black. Whether you opt for a lampshade, a piece of furniture or a set of picture frames, you’ll see how your room totally transforms in an instant. You might be surprised to see that black brings order to disparate pieces and gives a touch of sophistication to the space.
Add Some Texture
Maybe you’re wondering how can you add texture for that cozy feeling you need. You can bring in texture through rugs, throws, and baskets. It’s really that simple! A throw can really make a difference when put on the sofa or placed on the end of the bed.
Use the woven baskets to store firewood, toys, extra pillows or books and restore the order to a cluttered room.
No Room Without Books
You have your cookbooks in the kitchen, children’s books in the family room or coffee table tomes in the living room. It would be hard to imagine your rooms without your books, right? Books practically complement a space since they can successfully be used as beautiful objects in a display and add height to other objects you might want to showcase.
Personality is a Must
Every room in your home must be a reflection of yourself. So, how can you do that? Simply highlight your family’s interests, hobbies or travels by adding some accessories that tell those stories. Photographs are only one way to do it.
