10 Fabulous Decor Tricks You've Never Thought Of
Turns out there's more than one way to revamp your place in a pinch. One example? Easy switch-ups, like swapping out your flowers or spray-painting your frames. The other? Tricks that are totally unexpected but worth the payoff in every way. It's time to put on your magician hat, because we're breaking down all the tips you haven't thought of before.
Leave Some Things Unfinished
As with painting half a room or using just an ottoman without the matching chair, some things are better left unfinished. In this case, bold stripes are eye-catching enough that not all of them have to wrap around the wall.
Fake It Till You Make It
No one likes an obvious knockoff, but sometimes the fake product is better than the original. Case in point: this genius DIY that uses wallpaper to create the look of a marble table top. (The best part is there's more where that came from.)
Style Books Horizontally
We're all about finding creative ways to organize books, and this is one of the simplest: arranging them horizontally. It's incredibly easy, free, and playfully unexpected.
Create an Off-Center Gallery Wall
The secret to the perfect gallery wall? There isn't one! Instead of the traditional framed-photo look, consider alternatives and style them in a pattern (vertical, circular, etc.) that adds personality.
Hang Artwork Using Cables
Hanging your art from up top will draw even more attention to your favorite pieces. Plus, it's a great illusion that'll instantly make your room feel lighter.
Edit Down Your Pillows
Sure, we love pillows as much as the next person (sometimes too much). But using one long one or styling two pillows on a side is a refreshing change that works, especially if the prints are bright and bold.
We're just going to say it: it's OK to block beautiful windows out of convenience or style. Just be sure you use pieces that won’t totally cover the views. For instance, small desks and consoles or ottomans will still let light and air pass through.
Mix Furniture Types
Depending on how big your space is, you've probably heard different things when it comes to buying furniture with or without legs. Why not mix them? A sofa that hits the ground will complement another sofa or set of chairs that's raised — all while giving off an eclectic vibe.
Think Outside the Headboard Box
The headboard is one of the most classic elements of any home. But get creative and try one of these incredible headboard alternatives. How unexpected but fabulous do these arched windows look?
