Being a certified interior decorator has taught us many things. One of them is that there are a few key touches that can elevate your home to look classy and stylish. This does not mean you have to spend a lot of money. Incorporate some of the touches listed below into your decor and you’ll be sure to wow! anyone who enters your home with your good taste.
1. Floor Length Curtains
Installing floor length curtains will make windows look larger and the drapery will immediately soften the look and fell of the room. If you currently have 84″ length drapes you can increase these to 96″ or 108″ length drapes and raise your curtain rods to accommodate these lengths. Your room will immediately view higher.
2. Large Vases
Purchase a large vase and add artificial greenery to create a tall stunning arrangement. Place this in your home entry-way or in an area that you wish to use a s a focal point. Over-sized vases have a presence and they do not go out of style.
3. Side Tables
Add an interesting side table to a seating area to bring visual appeal to this space. By interesting we mean a side table that is different than your existing furniture. The table must compliment the existing furniture and if properly done it will anchor the room nicely. Don’t forget nesting tables. They are functional and come in handy when entertaining.
4. Lighting Pendants
We all know lighting is a great way to dress up a room and make it inviting. You can style your space with hanging pendants. These three bell shaped glass shades are suspended in various lengths to create dimension and enhance the room. With stylish curves and a silver finish, this pendant light brings a unique look to any decor.
5. Plants & Greenery
Incorporating tall interesting plants and a variety of greenery in a room is a sure way to catch someone’s attention. It is also a conversation starter for anyone visiting your home. These accessories can help make a room come together. Place appropriately around the room for visual effects.
6. Luxurious Towels/Linens
Replacing outdated or worn towels with fresh white or colorful fluffy towels, especially in guest bathrooms will elevate the space. Add a matching bath mat for a finishing touch. With linens a new set of sheets in the room will go a long way to making you or your guest feel welcome.
7. Global Accents
Consider displaying accessories you may have bought on your travels, or purchase an accent from us from around the world. This item should be proudly displayed. It is also interesting to others to hear about the travel story that accompanies these pieces, or the history of a particular piece.
8. Coffee Table Books
Placing a book or two on display can highlight your interests and inspire great conversation over coffee. Consider displaying books in a decorative way to add additional visual effect to the area.
While we live in a digital world and may not need an old-fashioned physical clock, having one prominently displayed is great from an interior design perspective and can be used for a focal point. The choice of a clock can be a way to express your personality. If you don’t want to add an additional piece to your walls then place a decorative clock on a table.
