Do you ever look around your rooms and wonder what in the world they are missing? Curtains, check. Lamps, check. But, it still seems too plain, unfinished, or simply not put together? Wish you knew some easy-to-implement home decorating hacks? My sister shared this list with me when I was redecorating our Master Bedroom. Honestly, it made all the difference because I was finally able to identify what I was missing.
This list doesn’t tell you that you need lamps or pillows or curtains. You all are too smart for that! This list is more about the touches that finish off a room and really make it pop. This easy list will help you make each room in your house feel special and complete.
FIVE THINGS EVERY ROOM SHOULD HAVE:
1. something SHINY – i.e. lamps, floors, lacquered tabletop, mirrors.
2. a mixture of TEXTURE – i.e. nubby throw, velvet pillows, sleek floors
3. PATTERN – doesn’t have to be all over, but if everything is plain, everything is plain. 🙂
4. METAL – shiny or crusty, doesn’t matter!
5. WOOD – I love salvaged wood but a glorious wooden dresser would also be fantastic.
So, let me show you what I added to our master and what it added to the room.
I tend to buy cozy things. But, I needed some “heavy metal.” I needed the contrast of sharp floors with soft linens. Do you find yourself buying the same types of things over and over? Me, too! That is why my house was looking blah and these tips totally helped me. I hope they help you, too.
Do you always buy the same nail polish or the same color purse, or have a hundred white button-ups? Shout it out in the comments, I hope I’m not the only one with a pink nail polish fetish. 😉
