Written by: /Friday, Aug 07, 2015 07:35 AM

You don’t have to do major renovations on your living room to make it more beautiful. A little goes a long way - make small but wise changes to simple pieces for maximum results.


Don’t just go for generic frames. Picks ones with vibrant colors, interesting details, and unique textures. And don’t limit yourself to just photos; you can place sayings or quotes inside the frames, or pick ones with a chalkboard that you can doodle on.

Throw Pillows

Accessorize your living room with throw pillows and give it a pop of color. Just be sure to pick out accent pillows that go well with your drapes, walls, or area rugs.


Be adventurous in picking out your chairs. While comfort is still of utmost importance, it doesn’t hurt to look for standout pieces that will give your space more personality.


Light up your living room with a unique fixture or a sleek desk/floor lamp that complements your room’s color scheme.


As rugs tend to be high-maintenance, requiring more frequent cleaning than other items, be careful of where you place it. Aside from style and design, take note of foot traffic in the area and your purpose for placing it there.


Make your space look more relaxed and inviting with potted plants or flower arrangements. Place them by the windowsill or near a blank corner to give that area more life. (For more tips, read our article on indoor gardening).
