5 Easy Home Decor Ideas That Will Transform Your Space
If your home is due for a design update but you have a limited budget and even less time, you're in the right place. We thought of 5 home décor ideas to help you start. With something as simple as an accent wall, colorful light bulb, or new throw pillow, your entire space can feel fresh, on-trend but timeless, and refine. You can tackle each of these decorating ideas in one day, even though the results will look like it took way longer to pull off.
1.Set Up a Cozy Reading Spot
No designated reading nook? No problem. If your home doesn't have any leftover real estate to convert into a reading nook, design your formal living room to serve double duty as a cozy lounge area. Here, Heidi Caillier strategically chose furniture with fabrics and shapes that are both sophisticated and homey, perfect for entertaining or unwinding alone.
2. Don't Be Afraid of Black Paint
The soft black paint color in this bedroom makes it feel special and intimate in ways you'd never be able to achieve with a lighter hue (this specific shade is Farrow & Ball Railings). The eclectic furniture lends itself nicely to the darkness, too, adding a more lived in and homey vibe.
3. Style an Empty Fireplace
Rethink how you style an empty fireplace. In this texture-rich environment, interior designer Leanne Ford turned an empty fireplace into a little gallery to display pottery and artwork.
4. Treat Your Windows
Adding the right window treatment can make all the difference. We're especially into Roman shades with a fun pattern. "It goes against decorating 101, but using small patterns together can be easier on the eye," says interior decorator Kristin Panitch, who designed this dreamy pink cloud of a bedroom.
5. Re-Style a Bookshelf
From the inky stained wood to the modern side chair and clean-lined ladder, this home library designed by Fiona Lynch is a gorgeous contemporary take on traditional design. You could fill it with books—or you could add in decor accents and accessories like vases and sculptures to break up the monotony of a wall of books. Or, color-coordinate your books. Not only will it feel more cohesive, but if you've got a lot of bright colors in your collection, they'll stand out even more.
