Plants G(r)o(w) a Long Way

GreeneryGreenery, especially greenery that is relatively self-sufficient, is not only a budget friendly decoration, but lasts all year round, looks beautiful, and can be grouped together for a large unique and varied work of art. Personalize the planters and pots by painting them different colors, or using unconventional containers.

The Walls Have Decor

Yes, art is awesome. It makes a statement and collecting art can become a passion. But. Art can be expensive. And that’s not what we’re talking about today. Let’s discuss ‘art’ that is priceless. Collect photographs and personal memorabilia in order to create your own mural. Frame them for a streamlined look in the living room but for a more casual, fun look use colorful washi tape which peels off easily, in an office, kitchen, or a kid’s bedroom.

Candle Charm

It may not seem like much when they’re in your own home, but think about how you feel in Soft Lighta room with candles as the primary source of light. The impact is huge which, in turn, makes the ambiance cozy and intimate. Purchase candles of different colors, heights, and widths for a cool candle jumble, or stay effortlessly neutral with all white candles.

Reflected and Twinkly Light

Want a room to feel bigger and brighter? Want to reflect the gorgeous view outside of your living room window? Add a mirror! The great thing about mirror is that they can be found anywhere and then upgraded with a little DIY love.

Add warmth and festiveness to your living room with twinkling lights strung along the bookshelf. Just like candles, small white lights give off a glow that is inviting and fun!
