Are you selling your home or just wishing it was more like your dream Pinterest home?They say the devil is in the details — and when it comes to interior decorating, nothing could be more true. If you flip through your favorite design magazines, you’ll notice a few consistent tricks that each room includes that take it from “nice enough” to omg.i.need.to.live.there.immediately. I’m spilling all the behind-the-scenes secrets today for you! We’re about to completely transform your home.
Accessorize your accent tables
Styling the surface of your accent tables is one of the easiest ways to make your home look like a professionally designed space. Use trays to corral accent pieces, candles, your favorite coffee table books, coasters, and personal mementos.
Fresh Flowers & Plants
Plants add texture, colour, and literally breathe life into any space, so while it may seem like a senseless purchase, just imagine that dreamy room that you have saved as inspiration on Pinterest without those perfect flowers on the coffee table, and you’ll realize just how big of an impact they make.
Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
Ever notice how magazine or Pinterest kitchens always have a bowl of fruit or vegetables elegantly displayed on a cutting board? It makes a huge difference! While chopping up fruit just for show isn’t exactly practical, keeping your lemons, apples, etc, in a bowl to display on your counter top or kitchen island is the perfect way to add a pop of colour and some extra visual interest.
Pillows and Throw Blankets
These are the details that make or break a space. You know that feeling when you enter a room and you just want to stay in it forever? That’s brought to you by layers of textiles and cozy accessories. For throw pillows, I like to style with the rule of five: three pillows on one side and two on the other. Make sure your pillows and throws all have varied textures to add extra interest and dimension.
