Whether you live in a tiny (or as the Realtors call it – “cozy”) 1-bedroom apartment, or a house with an abundance of space, nothing makes a house a home like the right finishing touches. A framed photo over here, a beloved treasure over there – these are the things that can instantly incorporate your personality and individual style into your home.
3 Inspiring Ideas for Making Your Home Prettier
While we might dream of having a Pinterest-worthy abode, the first step in that direction is to incorporate pieces into your space that make your home prettier. To help you update the look of your home, today’s home decor guide features 3 inspiring ideas (that don’t cost a fortune) to make your home prettier.
1. Add Fresh Flowers & Live Plants
One of the simplest ways to make your home prettier is to add fresh flowers and live plants. From easy-to-care-for succulents (that don’t require a green-thumb) to vases overflowing with gorgeous, colorful blooms, not only do fresh flowers and live plants bring life to a room, they also add color and make the space feel homier.
2. Make Your Home Office Fun & Functional
People who are successful in their careers live by the motto: “Love what you do, and do what you love“. To help inspire you to dream big and work hard, it behooves you to make your workspace a beautiful place to get the job done.
Whether it’s a small desk in the corner of your guest bedroom or it’s a designated home office, an easy way to make your home prettier (and more functional) is to have beautiful stationary and office supplies. From fancy notepads to cute sticky notes and even glam gold desk accessories, adding pretty pieces into your workspace will instantly put you in the mood to get things done.
3. Add Bold Prints & Colors with Accessories
Without making a major commitment to a bold print or color (on your bedding or area rug), opt for accessories (like decorative throw pillows) that add a ‘wow’ factor without going over-board on your budget. Not only can you change these pieces out seasonally (like going tropical for Summer or plaid for Fall), but accessories instantly add an eye-catching element to any space. From daring colors to dramatic patterns (like exotic animal prints), fun accessories can easily make your home prettier.
