Your home should reflect your personality through color, design and overall vibe.
When designing your living room, mixing and matching is great way to combine objects you’ve collected over the years with modern elements to bring it all together.
Commit to a color scheme, then go wild! It’s easy to end up with a room that looks like a color explosion, but if you limit your color palette to a few key hues, it’s easy to add as few or as many accents as you like.
Get creative! Use a service like Shutterfly to turn your photos and digital designs into custom pillows, coasters and blankets that coordinate. It’s amazing what a little planning can do to elevate your space.
Potted plants are a must. These will add life and color to your room without needing to be refreshed every week. Succulents and cacti tend to be the heartiest and most colorful.
Turn one wall of your living room into a rotating art gallery. Fill it with a mix of photographs printed on wood or canvas made on Shutterfly, prints or artwork found at flea markets and art fairs, and a few pinned-up postcards. Change things out a few times a year to keep it fresh.
Your home is all about you, so don’t stress too much about the design. Make it a space that you’re happy to come home to, and proud to show off to your friends and family.
