1. Add Greenery
Greenery in any form adds life—literally—to your room. And we welcome all kinds, from succulents and flowers to larger plants like a fiddle fig tree. No worries if you don’t have a green thumb, because there are plenty of low-maintenance faux options that look just as good as the real deal. Whatever you choose, greenery adds instant warmth, plus it goes with everything.
2. Dress Your Walls and Floors
This tip will give you the most bang for your buck, as nothing makes the room feel more plain than empty walls and floors. Just a simple area rug and wall art will pull the whole look together, and you can take the room in so many directions. You’ll want to make sure they complement one another, so keep everything in the same style and color family.
3. Add Lighting
The right lighting sets the mood, so even if you have an overhead ceiling light, incorporate a table or floor lamp into the space. We love a statement chandelier in the dining room, or a stylish floor lamp in the living room—just think of it as the jewelry to your décor.
4. Pile On The Pillows
Don’t just stick to a single pillow in each corner of the sofa or sectional. Instead, layer up with various sizes and shapes, and don’t be afraid to mix up your colors and patterns. The more you do, the more personality it will bring to your living room.
Finally, it’s all about the right accessories. Add texture by draping a throw over the sofa, or adding a basket to the floor. Create visual interest by placing decorative objects and vases on empty shelves and tabletops. These little add-ons will go a long way in making the room feel polished.
It’s that easy to make your room feel brand new! And of course, you can turn to our design experts for even more free ideas.
