July 9, 2021

Are you bored with the current theme of your house or have you outgrown some of the decor design in your home? Then this article has got you covered. You will find simple decor ideas that you can take on in a day to give you the magical results of a professional interior designer. From throw pillows to accent walls, mason jars, and candles, your home will feel fresh and on-trend once more.

First Things First: Declutter

When planning to improve your space, this is the perfect time to declutter. Start by evaluating each room. Then, take anything you do not need out of that space or into another area in your house where they might be more useful. From this point on, any time you bring something new into the home, ask yourself if it will work in its current location or if it would be better off somewhere else.

Throw In Some Throw Pillows

Patterend throw pillows are the simplest way to spruce up your living room or bedroom. The right fabric and color can turn a plain space into an inviting retreat for you and your guests. Choose one that matches the look of the other decor in your home with colors from muted pastels to deep jewel tones.

Accent Walls

For accent walls, paint your wall with a color that complements the other colors in your home. For example, if you are leaning towards lighter shades, such as white or pale blue, include dark black and deep red accents to bring out the contrast. The size of your accent wall should be no more than one-third of any given room’s total surface area for maximum effect without feeling too overwhelming.

Mason Jars and Candles

For a touch of romance, wrap candles or light bulbs in mason jars with decorative cloths inside to create soft flickering lights that cast shadows on the walls. The ambient glow will make your space feel intimate and inviting for those late-night conversations about life’s big questions.

House Plants And Succulents

Add some greenery to your home and make it feel more alive. House plants are easy to maintain, they do not require much light, and they smell great. Succulents also look good in any room in the house — on shelves or as table decorations.

Flower Vases And Decorative Wall Hooks

Flower vases are a great way to add color and life to any room of your home. Group them on shelves or hang them from the ceiling for an eye-catching focal point in your living area. You can use traditional flower vases, add some creativity, or contemporary vases. For example, moscow mule copper mugs act as great contemporary vases and provide an authentic vintage look to your space.

A decorative wall hook is another easy way to display art, pictures, and flowers without nails or tacks.


Mirrors have an effect that makes any space feel bigger and brighter. Hang one over the mantel or above a dining table to reflect natural light, which can help brighten up dark areas such as hallways and living rooms. If you have lots of fabric in your space, hang a mirror on an adjacent wall so that the reflection creates more of a sense of depth.

New Paint

If you are looking to change the color palette or design style in your home, opt for a modern and minimalist look that’s simple but understated with metallic finishes on furniture like tables and chairs. This will give your space an airy feel without hindering movement around your room.

Throw Rugs

Throw rugs can help refresh the look of any room and create an inviting ambiance. Choose one with a pattern or color that coordinates with your current decor to bring out the best in your space.

Anchor rugs are an easy way to add a pop of color and pattern. If you want something bold, use this technique in your living room or dining area for maximum effect.

Paintings And Artwork

For a gallery-like look in your home, hang paintings and artwork on the wall. Group them with similar styles or colors for an eclectic but cohesive feel. Paintings will show off your personality as well as any blank walls you may have around your house.

Better Lighting

Light is the key to making any room feel inviting and homey. A dimming overhead light will create a more intimate atmosphere that is perfect for date nights or cozy evenings reading by yourself at home with your pets.

If you want something softer, try installing lamps around your house in corners or behind furniture so that they cast soft pools of light where they’re needed most.

Change The Curtains

A fresh set of curtains is a great way to spruce up any room. Whether you want something more traditional, like lace or striped fabric or geometric prints that bring out the color palette in your space — there is no wrong answer when it comes to curtains.

There Is Nothing Like Too Many Storage Units

Storage units are a great way to make the most of any unused space in your home. There is always a need for storage units. Whether you want an extra closet or dresser, shelving for your living room, or countertop storage that will help keep all those messy surfaces under control.

To Wrap It All Up

Sprucing up your space does not need to be expensive and time-consuming. Well, as they say, the devil is in the details. So, make sure you add your personality to the decor you choose, and it is sure going to be nothing short of magical.
