9 Surprising Ways to Make Your Place More Stylish Right Now
If you’re feeling like your space could use an update but aren’t willing or able to go through the expense or trouble of a full redesign, try one of the below ideas to instantly add a unique sense of style and sophistication to your home.
Pull your favorite tomes out from your bookshelves and stack them on a console table, bench, ottoman, or dining table to add style and interest to your space. Stacked books are a way to convey your interests, add color and texture to your space, and create a layered look, all with items you already own.
We love the way a large-scale, imperfect arrangement of branches brings color and a dose of nature into a home. Create contrast in more polished places and inject a sense of casual elegance by placing a wild arrangement in areas like bathrooms and dining rooms.
You may think it is a mistake to place a table right next to a fireplace or float a sofa in the middle of a room, but placing your furniture in an unexpected arrangement can bring a sophisticated spin to your space. Break the “rules” and experiment with an unconventional layout to bring interest and individuality to your home.
Look at small, easily overlooked areas as opportunities to create a styled vignette. The tops of tall armoires, deep windowsills, and side cabinets are all perfect places to create additional interest with a styled vignette.
We love the casual yet polished vibe of this bedroom, especially its off-kilter arrangement of art. The imperfect spacing and layout creates an unusual, intriguing composition that feels effortlessly chic.
Create an enveloping vibe in areas with a bold paint color by continuing the treatment onto doors, trim, and molding. Swathing the entire room in your moody or saturated paint color will create a cocoon-like feeling and is a wonderful way to create ambiance.
Roll up your sleeves and break out your DIY gold leaf instructions to add some shimmery glamour to your space. Whether it’s your staircase’s balusters, the knobs on a cabinet, the vintage light fixture you scored on Craigslist, or an inexpensive mirror you want to make more polished, adding a gold detail to your design helps your place look luxe and polished.
We love the unexpected, thoughtful component these angled rugs bring to this casual and collected living space. The unconventional placement works well with the somewhat unusual furniture plan and adds a fun, unique element to the otherwise classic space.
Deep purple flowers and vibrant fruit bring color and life to this simple kitchen table. Look around your home to see what colors your space is lacking and introduce those contrasting hues into your rooms through bold flowers and accessories.
