Room Decorating Ideas
It’s often the little things in life that make the biggest differences and the same holds true when it comes to home decorating. Don’t let yourself get stuck in a rut because you think that it takes a lot of time, money and big changes to make an impact in a room makeover. Instead, focus on changing up key accent pieces to breathe new life into your room and keep your décor fresh and welcoming.
Frame Your View
Whether casual or formal, a window treatment can effortlessly change the entire look of your room. Choose an easy-to hang panel window curtain in an airy botanical print to easily invite spring into your decorating.
Make It Shine
Add a decorative table lamp to shine light on an otherwise dark area of your room, but the real trick here is to pick a lamp that has its own distinctive look. Choose a glass one that reflects the light or one made of mercury glass for a gorgeous antique feel without feeling old fashioned.
Of course it’s always nice to have a mirror around to check as you walk out the door, but more important, a decorative mirror provides a beautiful accent to your room. Choose one with an elaborate, interesting frame. Think circles of vintage-inspired lace, intricate layers of vines or an interesting mix of colors. Don’t forget to consider an unexpected shape.
Toss on the Texture
Texture and color always add interest and dimension to your room. And thanks to decorative pillows and throws, it makes for a quick and easy way to change things up. Try grouping patterned or pleated pillows in an inviting, touchable fabric. Drape a luxurious throw over the edge of your sofa to take the chill off.
Accent pieces highlight the personality of your room, so consider ones that capture the right mood that you’re trying to achieve. Large vases fit beautifully into décor and can hold fresh bouquets, stems of lighted willows or decorative bunches of lavender or fragrant eucalyptus.
