There are decorating magazines and then there is real life. When we compare the two, we tend to place ourselves on the side of the unfortunate. Why is my house not so beautiful? Why did not I find a style for my home? In short, what have others at home that I do not have? In reality, your home has everything you need to be pretty, just know how to sublimate it. And the good news is that it can not take more than ten minutes to convince you. Here is a proposal to convince you: follow the steps detailed below in your living room. Take pictures before / after, you will be surprised.
First, unclutter. Because there is life, passages and obligations, the living room fills up very quickly and it accumulates objects that are often useless. This infernal spiral of congestion must be broken regularly to find a little freedom in his living room.Take the example of a library: by removing books you do not care, you ventilate its shelves, creating lighter areas. A cluttered room visually sends too much information. We can then pass by the real beautiful objects, which nevertheless deserve to be highlighted.
Here is a step that may look like decluttering but is based on redistribution. Take the concrete case of a piece of furniture such as a couch side table. In your living room, this table is used only occasionally but it has a strong impact on the decoration of your living room. It occupies an important space and it is perhaps at the origin of a specific direction of circulation. On the other hand, you have a bedside table that you do not really like. Why not replace your bedside table with your side table? By moving your furniture, you reinvent a new space and put in lights furniture whose beauty you may have forgotten.
Add flowers and plants
And if the problem in your living room is that it just lacks a little life? To remedy this problem, the solution is very simple. Just invest the space with green plants and flowers. Precisely you just declutter and you have new virgin areas to exploit. Obviously it is not a question of putting back the bazaar but of adding small touches colors which, in addition, bring freshness and good humor. Choose your plants according to their decorative quality but also their ease of maintenance and their ideal location. Bouquets of flowers are also small miracles to make a piece more beautiful. Put a nice bouquet of tulips on your coffee table and discover the immediate effect, it works every time!
Replace your cushion covers
If your couch looks gray, you may think that replacing it would be the best option. Before arriving at this definitive act, it is possible to prolong its life by investing in some cushion covers.This object that does not cost much and can be replaced very easily can transform the living room. Again, we inject a few touches of color and it changes everything. Depending on his mood, we choose message covers, graphic or exotic. A way of letting go on the grounds without being afraid of getting tired.
Take things out of the closet
There are so many things in our closets that deserve dusting. Between decorative candles, extra lamps, wedding tableware and party tablecloth, we sometimes have a real store in our drawers. And the worst ? These objects often end up being forgotten by not being in front of our eyes. Bringing out your beautiful dishes means making an ordinary day an extraordinary day and it works just as well for the grandmother’s vase as for the old jewelry box.Do not limit the use of table linen on special occasions, we must make every day a party.
Bring the (beautiful) light
To beautify your interior, your rooms must look as if they are flooded with sunlight. There are many ways to brighten your home. The simplest is to clean your windows. It sounds stupid and yet clean windows let better pass the external light. Then remove all the curtains and curtains too dark and those who do not have the vocation to protect you from the vis-à-vis. Finally, we can also use artificial light to beautify the interior. We multiply the lighting points with lamps which brings a more cozy atmosphere and we choose connected bulbs to always have the most flattering lights.
Finally, we clean up.A clean and orderly house is always prettier!
