It's all about showcasing the things you have cleverly, beautifully, and functionally. You can make your books the highlight of your room by creating a clever shelving arrangement in your living room.

2. Create a warm and cozy ambiance

Earthenware and ceramics can give your room an earthy, warm and cosy vibe. Choose textures, colours and shapes that will instantly transform your space with little effort.

3. Grab your paintbrush and paint a wall

The easiest way to transform a space is to paint it, in a contrasting colour to the one there before. The best thing about this is that you can do this yourself. Just choose one wall that you want as the focus in the room and experiment with it.

4. Unconventional materials on the walls

If you're not too invested in painting a wall, don't worry. You can easily create a highlight on a wall by putting up unconventional materials like this corkboard. It is not expensive, looks really cool, and there are tons of mini wall projects that you can display on it.

5. Add a statement piece like this vintage window

Up the aesthetics of your interiors by adding such statement pieces. But remember not to go overboard with this. Concentrate on one or two pieces in a room like these vintage French windows here that basically steal the show here.


6. New furnishing, lovable fabrics

What sort of fabrics would you like in your living room and bedrooms? Go with whatever is your style—cotton, velvet, sustainable fabrics, faux leather, embroidered material. Throw some cushions with cracking new covers, and curtains and see how fresh and new the room feels.



7. Invest in some eclectic furniture

Just change a few pieces of furniture in your dining room and see what difference it makes. You can invest in an eclectic set like these metal chairs in gold and orange. These not only look good but are functional too.

8. Pay attention to corners

We have a tendency to overlook and ignore corners in our homes while looking at the bigger picture. Pick up one such ignored corner at home and curate it with things that are close to your heart, like a painting that you love, your favourite chair to sit and read, houseplants, coffee table books.

9. Light accessories and vintage cupboards

Create minimal decor by adding a beautiful light accessory like this beautiful standing copper lampshade. Vintage almirahs for storage also look charming. You can also create this look by upcycling one of your old cupboards and painting it in neutral or pastel shades. Again, do not go overboard with accessories in one room. Work with two-three different pieces. Remember, less is more.

10. Add a frame

With the addition of just one photograph or painting, you can change the look of your whole rrom. Here is an example.

11. Fun little pieces

Sometimes just adding a few fun pieces in a classic setting turn around the energy of the entire room.

12. Glass doors

Simply change your regular wooden doors with glass and bring the outdoors indoors. This makes your room look bigger and incorporates the outdoor greens right inside the room.
