(Photo Credit: Banarsi Designs)

Imagine your favorite shirt or dress. What makes it your favorite? Is it the fabric, cut, or texture? Or is it the fact that that particular article of clothing is versatile enough to be dressed up or down for different occasions? You may find yourself wanting to agree to all the questions posed, which is completely fine! Likewise, when it comes to decorative table linens, you want to be able to use them in a variety of ways that will compliment virtually any occasion that you can dream up. Table runners don’t have to be limited to just your dining room table. So today, we want to inspire you to start thinking of some new and out-of-the-box ways to use table runners!

Housewarming Gifts

Finding out that your friends have just purchased a new home or became new homeowners is most certainly something to celebrate. If you find that you have been invited to their housewarming but not quite sure what would be a purposeful gift, an elegant hand-painted table runner would be the perfect touch. For housewarming gifts, it’s best to give items that will be beneficial to the general upkeep of the house, but we also believe that it’s even more beneficial to include gifts that will spruce up the decorative aspects of their home as well. After all, everyone secretly wants their home to resemble a page out of Better Homes and Gardens!

Make Your Dining Room Table Jealous

There are other furniture items in house that may need a little extra loving. Sometimes you need to take a quick survey of what other décor could be boosted throughout your lovely abode. Maybe you have some furniture that seems a little bland but you decided to look past that because you know you won’t be able to find a piece like that anywhere else. Or perhaps that bland furniture fits perfectly with the layout of your room and switching it out for something else may completely kill the flow. Whatever the case may be within your reasoning of keeping plain furniture, you can always keep it right where it is and add a little something to it that will transform the entire room or area! Livening up your living room or even bedroom with luxurious table runners for dressers, bookcases, coffee tables and the like will create great contrast with an exciting burst of culture!

Out with the Old, In with the New..DIY!

Are you itching to take matters into your own hands? If you have some cool fabric and other random décor items laying around your house that could serve a much better purpose in your home, why not start brainstorming ideas to craft together your very own designer table runner? Not only will you be creating your own custom design straight from your own creative prowess that can potentially turn into designs used for social events, but you will also be reducing the amount of dust accumulation in your home from unused (and sometimes forgotten) knick-knacks. How’s that for a good spring cleaning?

Whichever directions you are thinking about going in, remember to always find keep it fresh and interesting!

Home Décor Gift Ideas for Any Occasion!


(Photo Credit: Oprah

Just like events, gift-giving is a very abundant part of life that will never fade. As a matter of fact, they go hand in hand! Picking out a gift for someone and sharing it with them is the best symbol of your token of appreciation. You may have probably figured out by now that gift-giving can be quite the skill to attain if you find yourself invited to many events and milestones. It’s not as simple as you may think! Big chain businesses make a ton of money on mass producing typical gifts that they expect consumers to buy for numerous occasions, which results in gift-giving becoming a little generic. Why not focus on beautifying their home for a change? After all, home is where the heart is. Today, we want to give you some gift ideas that will set you apart from the rest!

Company Parties

If you are in the corporate world, you are aware that you spend most of your day with your coworkers and colleagues. Add that up and you’re spending a significant amount of hours per week with them throughout the entire year. When you’ve been at a job for a good amount of time, it’s only natural that you become comfortable and form relationships with the team you got hired into. A good job usually has corporate events that are designed to strengthen the relationships between workers in order to accomplish the common goal. Events like Employee Appreciation Day, award ceremonies, and holiday parties are among the most popular. If you’re tired of the meager selections you‘re forced to choose from at regular stores, try checking out some hand-painted placemat sets! People generally enjoy gifts that will provide great function, multiple uses and long-lasting protection against wear and tear. Giving your fellow colleague the gift of a deluxe placemat set will make them cherish it even more!

Anniversaries

Admit it. The celebration of the day you officially united with your significant other is just as important as the actual day! If this wasn’t the case, you wouldn’t find yourself sweating and making sure you remember to get something extra special to commemorate. As the years that you’ve been together start accumulating, you want to make sure that you keep things fresh and lively. Husbands, the regular flower arrangement gift may be getting a little stale. Wives, his watch collection is probably overflowing by now. Try surprising each other with something different by considering an embroidered 7-piece duvet cover set with a matching 5-piece placemat set to accompany it. These sets are sure to add some much needed zest into your bedroom!

Birthday Parties

We saved the best for last! Birthday parties provide the ultimate opportunity for unique gift-giving. You are helping to ring in another year of life with your loved ones. With all that goes on in the world, this is definitely something to celebrate! Birthday parties are one of the most popular events known to be completely customizable according to the individual’s creativity. That means that they can go all out! You can go all out with your gifts as will, but again, you want to think about functionality when it comes to giving something of value. No one wants a ton of stuff that they really have no purpose for but to collect dust and take up space. The simplest things can really help transform even the smallest of spaces. Initially, it may sound crazy to give your tissue box a makeover, but you’d be surprised in what can create eyesores in the overall look of a room. Choosing a decorative tissue box cover as a gift to give is a great way to show genuine care for the décor of their home.

Gift giving really doesn’t have to be all that difficult. Putting a little more thought into what you give really makes a difference in the way your gift is cherished. Before you go, here’s a little insider. If you’re looking for more gift idea examples, click here!

Do You Know How to Make Up Your Bed?

(Photo Credit: Banarsi Designs)

That may sound like an elementary question but what makes up a great bedroom space is its main feature: the bed. At the very beginning of the day, you are probably used to jumping out of bed and throwing a waterfall of clothes and other trinkets on it as you rush around to get ready for work. There’s a good possibility that you didn’t think to make up your bed and probably didn’t have time to think ahead to the end of the day where you become a bit irritated with what resembles a tornado. All you wanted to do was collapse and melt into your bed after a grueling day of work, right? Now if you’re a person who had very anal parents that were adamant about an immaculate bed, this one is for you. Do you have times where you do make up your bed often, but you still feel like something is missing to complete the daily experience? Do you constantly walk into your room not feeling the way you should feel when rest is needed? You may want to go with your gut feeling on this one, then. If you’re tired of not getting the best comfort and relaxation from your bed, it may be due to the fact that you aren’t utilizing its features to its greatest potential. Let us help you remedy that!

Where Is Your Bed?

Remember that little thing called Feng Shui that we talked about in an earlier post? Yes, the concept has come back to visit us once again! One of the reasons why you may not feel particularly comfortable in your own bed is because the placement of it may be slightly off. The art of Feng Shui basically teaches us that every part of a room should flow seamlessly with the natural life force energy that is around us day in and day out. Any disruption in that natural flow will result in a blockage that can affect you in different ways. Now who finds joy in having a bedroom but not being able to sleep in it properly because it’s not aligned right? Yea, we don’t know of anyone either.

Pillow Placement

Pillows will always be near and dear to our hearts. However, too much of anything can turn into a bad thing really quickly! The amount of pillows on your bed can affect your feelings of comfort big time! If you have too little, you’re not really getting the support you need for those nights that you unconsciously find yourself sprawled out like a frog. Too many pillows can make your bed feel a lot smaller and confined. And bland, lifeless pillows might as well not even be there. Arranging your pillows the right way, which usually encourages lining up pillows from biggest to smallest, not only maximizes space on your bed, but it also allows for all your decorative pillow designs to be seen. Speaking of pillows, it’s always good to have ones that make a statement. Our accent pillow cover selection is extensive enough for you to play around with different colors and textures.

Attack of the Comforter!

Another reason why you may not be feeling comfy in your bedroom may be due to the fact that your bed is a little too comfy. Your comforter or duvet may be made of some of the plushiest fabrics on the planet, but you may find yourself getting swallowed up by it more times than you care to admit. Not to mention, you have probably pressed the snooze button and been late to work more times than you can count. It shouldn’t feel like quicksand every time you fall into (or out) of your bed and you shouldn’t feel like you’re wrestling Sasquatch trying to tame it when needed. Ditch the bulky fabric and opt for something a little lighter. Our 7-piece duvet cover sets allow for you to completely revamp your bed and start from scratch. Aren’t you lucky you found us?

Of all the rooms in your home, you should feel the most peaceful in your own bedroom. All stress should left at the door. You can now say with confidence that all your bed-making woes are no more! With just a few adjustments, you’re well on your way to an oasis of pure slumber!

Event Decor

Home décor is always taken to the next level when there are guests involved! Designing décor that suits your own personal style is from the perspective of mainly you. However, designing your décor in order to accommodate and suit other people with different tastes and styles can be a little more challenging. If you are the type of person who loves to host numerous social gatherings at your home, I’m pretty sure this is like music to your ears! With event décor, you are going for a more overall approach with the way you present your home to your guests. Today, we’re going to highlight a few ideas for the most common events that you may find yourself preparing for.

Precious Moments: Baby Showers


(Photo Credits: The Ladybugs Picnic & Banarsi Designs)

There’s no doubt about it. New bundles of joy are always coming into the world! Baby showers give family and friends the opportunity to celebrate the arrival of a little bun in the oven. It’s also a way to help support the parents-to-be as they prepare for one of the most important days of their lives. Creating an atmosphere of love and support really helps to amplify the good vibes and wishes needed. And as the host of this beautiful event, it’s important that you can deliver that. Tablecloths have a knack for not only setting the tone of the décor, but also keeping the balance between all the other elements. Choosing tablecloths that feature beautiful and subtle designs will really add onto the youthful bliss circulating in the room. Whether it be for boy or girl, our embroidered tablecloths in Pink and Blue will really add a chic element to the next baby shower you are honored to host.

An Exquisite Evening for Cocktails!

Cocktail Party

Let’s switch it up and get a little grown and sexy for a minute! The summertime is perfect for those nights where you want to throw a little get-together for your closest friends to celebrate relocating, new jobs, a visit into town or just as a well overdue pick-me-up from a rough week. Whatever the case may be, a cocktail party will never be an outdated venture. One way to make your cocktail parties more engaging is to have a wine glass painting session prior to the delicious concoctions you have planned to serve. This would promote great bonding with your friends while also providing a timeless keepsake as a reminder of great memories and laughter. With newly painted wine glasses, why not already have a placemat set in place to complement those newfound art skills? Our hand-painted placemat sets in various colors would definitely complete the classy look you’re going for.

New Beginnings: Housewarming

Home Sweet Home

Are you hosting an event that is also honoring your accomplishments as well? Housewarmings are a way to reconnect with family and loved ones while you embark on the journey of being a first-time homeowner. This is also a milestone in life that is well worth the celebration! Being that this kind of gathering will be one you host and participate in, you have a little more autonomy over how you prefer the style of the event décor. Additionally, a housewarming event includes a little tour of the new home. While your guests are admiring your many rooms, why not give them a little something to remember? Incorporating our hand-painted and hand-embroidered accent pillow covers would be a great addition to your living room, guest rooms and bedrooms.

Although there are a plethora of events to explore, we thought to leave you with this teaser in order to really get your creative juices flowing. If you don’t see any of your exact events listed, you can always use this as inspiration to build off of to save you a little time!

How to Pull Together the Perfect Look for Your Wedding Reception


(Photo Credit: Banarsi Designs)

Getting married is one of the most exciting and overwhelming times of your life. And rightfully so! You are about to join your life to another in holy matrimony. We’d say that’s pretty life-changing. Planning a wedding can be just as nerve-wracking, as every little detail counts. This isn’t even counting the planning time needed to make sure your reception looks and goes smoothly. If you are looking for some refuge in your time of preparing for your big day, take a breather and let us help you out! When it comes to putting together the perfect look for your wedding reception, there are a few things you want to focus on. You will find that focusing on a few main elements will help to streamline your ideas and prevent your brain from doing any more scrambling.

Centerpieces


(Photo Credit: Wedding Décor Ideas)

A wedding reception just wouldn’t be a wedding reception without adding centerpieces to the mix! The centerpieces serve as a major focal point to the overall look and feel of your reception. They also help pull in all the colors chosen for your wedding décor, which balances out the entire room. You can get really creative with deciding how to display your color theme, as this will really add some dimension to the room. Depending on the style that you’re going for and the shape of your tables, centerpieces can be tall, short or in between. You can add accents to the base or its surrounding areas to really catch the eye. You can guarantee that your guests will also be quite entertained with a lovely arrangement to look at while they celebrate your day with you. Getting clear about what to pick as a centerpiece is a great starting point.

Table Runners

If you’re not really into eye-catching centerpieces, you can always opt for beautiful Indian table runners. They will still give you the focal point needed but from a different angle and perspective. The best part about incorporating table runners into your wedding reception décor is that they will bring an interesting element of texture to your tables. The different designs featured can bring out different details highlighted in your décor. Another great benefit to using table runners is that you still have the option to add simpler and smaller centerpieces if you so desire! However, be mindful that they don’t take away from the overall design of the table runners. If you’re looking for some visual inspiration to get you started, check out our ornamental blossom, hand painted, and hand embroidered table runners that are available in a great variety of colors!

Chairs

To complete the look of your wedding reception décor, a nice finishing piece would be in the way you dress your chairs. If your chairs are pretty simple compared to your centerpieces and/or table runners, they will stick out like a sore thumb. Adding a little pizazz to the backs of the chairs will help tie in all the elements, as well as make your guests look a little more uniform in the pictures taken. You don’t have to go big and flashy if you don’t want to. Just adding a little hint of coordinating color and texture will complete the look.

With just these three starter points, you already have enough inspiration to really start putting together the décor for your lovely wedding reception! Because this is your special day, there are no rules for you to follow when it comes to how you choose to decorate. We’re excited to see what you come up with!

What You Need to Know About Table Linens (And Why You Can’t Live Without Them)


(Photo Credit: Banarsi Designs

When it comes to your dining experience, you deserve the best. This also goes for your family and other guests you may invite over. Walking into your dining room should be an exclusive experience that gives a great presentation of what coming together and enjoying a delicious meal should feel like. Having a bare wood table just won’t cut it and is not really attractive in the overall décor of your home. And throwing a plastic or vinyl tablecloth on your beautiful table just for the time being is just plain wrong! Forget what you were previously told about table linens. We’re here to let you know why table linens are an essential part of your home décor.

Tablecloths: It’s Ok to Add A Little Color

Most people like to play it safe with neutral colors that won’t cause any trouble. Although you can never go wrong with a neutral palette, why not switch it up to make things interesting from time to time? Adding a vibrant color like our beautiful tablecloths in Golden Orange will really make a bold statement! If you are going for a more elusive and sultry feel, our Midnight Black would be perfect for a late night rendezvous by candlelight. Incorporating a lively element within your linens will automatically transform your dining room into a place that promotes stimulating conversation and empty plates.

You Can Go Against The Grain! (..or Fabric For That Matter)

All tablecloths are not created equal! You do not have to settle for the uniform fabric that most stores will try to sell to you. Using a tablecloth that is made from great quality ensures longevity of use. In the grand scheme of things, choosing a machine-wash version will only disappoint you because of the fading and possible snags that may happen. There’s nothing worse than looking at the after effects of a tablecloth that used to be in its full glory not too long before you washed it a few times. Additionally, you want to go with something that will flow better as well. Another factor to consider is the actual design of the tablecloth. What is really going to grab  attention and pull together the whole look after choosing a great color? We’re glad you asked! Choosing one of our hand-painted or hand-embroidered tablecloth selections with fabrics ranging from Organza to Dupioni satin will really seal the deal!

You Can Switch Them Out For Placemats & Table Runners

If you are looking for a change of pace or even a slightly toned down style, you can always switch out your lovely tablecloths for an even more elegant look. A beautiful Indian table runner creates a line of focus and a subtle signal to the person walking in, which results in your loved ones making a bee line for the dining room at dinner time. Likewise, a luxurious hand-painted placemat set, such as our Plum Purple featured above, would really catch some eyes!

You can’t go wrong with quality table linens and gorgeous designs that will never go out of style. Having a dining room that is timeless with every meal and gathering would add immensely to the enjoyment of your home!

The Home Décor Cheat Sheet: Accent Pillows, For the Win!


(Photo Credit: Banarsi Designs)

Pillows! What would we do without them? Our beds wouldn’t feel complete without a soft cushion to lay our heads on for the night. Our rainy nights on the couch with a cup of tea and a good book just wouldn’t have the same feeling without a pillow to support our back or legs on. And tending to an injury that needs constant elevation would certainly not have the same benefit without a pillow to assist in healing. As you can see, pillows are pretty vital to the comfort we feel in our home life. But they also possess another hidden superpower that you may not have been privy to before. They are the perfect way to update your décor whenever you need it! The benefits and many ways to style them up could be endless, so we’re going to give you just a few pointers to get you started.

They Can Become Your Focal Point of Inspiration

With accent pillows, you don’t have to go through the painstaking process of flipping through tons of magazines and designating marathon nights for an endless amount of HGTV shows. We completely understand if you like doing those things. No judgment here. But if you are looking for a more direct and in-your-face inspirational spark, then look no further than your local home décor stores! Simply taking a trip to the store and spotting the perfect pillow patterns and designs that suit your fancy could be exactly what you need to start designing the rest of your room of choice.

They Can Make Cool Words

So maybe you’ve already drafted out how you want your décor to look. But as you take a step back to admire your hard work, you still don’t feel satisfied. You’re looking for a certain element that will bring more life into the vision you executed. Perhaps it just needs a little character! Who said that pillows are only for show and not for play? For the fun-lovers out there, here’s your answer to décor that doesn’t take life seriously all the time. Incorporating pillows that make an irresistible statement will not only catch the eyes of your guests at any given moment but also makes for a great interactional ice breaker when needed the most.

They Are Completely Customizable

Didn’t find exactly what you were looking for in the stores? Did you have to resort to the tons of magazine research and HGTV show marathons? Tsk, tsk. The beauty within the world of accent pillows is that you can make your own! You have full autonomy over the fabric, material and design you want. You even have control over how many you want to make without worrying about royally breaking the bank. Never again will you have to look in horror at another person picking the same accent pillows as you.

Why Your Dining Room Doesn’t Feel Inviting Anymore

Throughout homes of all shapes and sizes, the dining room is considered one of the places in a house where the family is able to come together and open up about their lives. If you think back to the variety of family TV shows you’ve watched over the course of your life, I’m pretty sure that you will start to remember scenes where the mother sets the table and joins the father and children with either playful banter or serious life lessons.

However, in today’s society, we are constantly on the go and out the door. Because of the “microwave” culture we live in, it’s becoming increasingly rare for a family to come together at the dining room at one time and experience the bonding needed for a strong unit. When was the last time you and your family took the time to sit down and enjoy each other’s company? Do you find yourself making your meal and plopping down in front of the TV? Is your dining room just a room decorated for appearance sake or a dumping ground for your mail? Today, we are going get to the root of why your dining room isn’t being utilized to its highest potential.

Feng Shui? What’s That?


(Photo Credit: Feng Shui Tips)

You might have heard of those two words before but wasn’t exactly sure what it meant. That’s okay; after reading you’ll leave this blog post with new knowledge. In the home décor world, learning something new each day can really broaden your horizons!

Feng Shui is essentially the ancient Chinese concept of complimenting the natural flow of energy, or “life force”, with focus on the spatial arrangement of furniture and color in any room of your home. The concept of Feng Shui goes a little deeper down the rabbit hole and can most certainly extend to your workplace and beyond. For now we’re going to focus on Feng Shui as it relates to the home, where we feel the most rooted.

Your Furniture is Blocking the Flow

Have you taken into consideration how your furniture is laid out in your dining room? It may not seem like a big deal, but when it comes to improving the quality of your home life, it’s more vital than you may originally think. Because the dining room is the place where you engage in nourishing your body, you want to make sure that it’s not laid out in a way that may cause indigestion problems. Yes, you read right! If your dining room is confined in any way, it can negatively affect your digestion. And we all enjoy savoring our food with no interruptions, right? When it comes to the shape of your dining table, you want to go for more rounded options. An octagon table, which is highly suggested, provides overall togetherness and interaction with your loved ones. A square table, which is a close runner up, provides grounding and balance. Speaking of grounding, picking out a sturdy wooden table would greatly contribute to the flow of the room as well. However, be aware of the size of the wooden table, as one that is too bulky would be counterproductive. Another benefit to creating good Feng Shui in your living room is that also attracts wealth! Increasing your abundance for you and your family is always something to strive for!

You’ve Picked the Wrong Colors

As stated earlier, Feng Shui also involves the use of the right colors to further increase good flow in your dining room. Being that this particular room in the house deals more with the earthy aspect of ourselves, it’s best to go with more earth-tone or soft colors. To make this easier, think about the kinds of foods you and your family like to eat. We guarantee that you will find inspiration from the colors of foods like salmon, peaches or even honey! As long as your color choices are not too bright and bold, you are off to a good start.

So by now, you have a great head-start to revamping your dining room. Your tables will be positioned properly and the color of your walls will be quite delectable. To finalize the look, we suggest investing in some of our hand embroidered and hand painted deluxe placemat sets. With many beautiful colors and Indian designs in stock, you will never want to eat away from the table again!

The Top 5 Colors You Should Have in Your Bedroom Right Now


(Photo Credit:
HGTV Remodels)

What would the world be without colors? We are quite lucky to be able to experience their immense varieties from one spectrum to the other! I bet that you didn’t know that colors are very important to us in many ways that far exceed just something amazing to admire. There is a whole psychology to how color affects our moods, mentality and well-being. Have you ever walked into a room and immediately felt calm and relaxed. How about a time where you were at a friend’s house and started to feel closed in or maybe even disgruntled? Most people are not fully aware that the colors they choose taps into their conscious and subconscious in ways they may not be knowledgeable of yet. By finding your way to this blog post, you have instantly been granted exclusive access into the world of colors and how to use them effectively to improve your home décor. Today, we are going to focus on the best colors for one of everyone’s favorite place to be: the bedroom!

Blue Dreamscapes

Color Speaks, Banarsi Designs)

Blue doesn’t always have to represent feeling “blue”. In fact, this color promotes the complete opposite! This primary hue is quite vital to the foundation of colors and affects us in a more mental way. With blue, you can expect to have wonderful feelings of tranquility that can instantly eliminate any stress or anxiety you may have had prior. It is also a very trusting color that will make you feel secure. Sounds pretty essential for those days where you have the urge to completely collapse into your bed after a hard day’s work, right? If you’re more drawn to a richer shade of blue, you will have the added benefit of having clarity of your thoughts. If a softer blue is more your speed, you will feel calmer, be more concentrated (on sleeping), and feel freer in general. Check out our divinely hand-painted 7-piece duvet cover set in Ocean Blue, which would serve perfectly.  Another added bonus about the color blue is that it energetically corresponds to the throat chakra, or energy center, in our body that represents communication. Pillow talk with your significant other will never be the same again!

Passionate Red Nights

Let’s spice things up a little, shall we? Being the complete opposite of blue, this sultry hue definitely knows how to heat things up! The color red deals more with the physical aspect of our being and is known for creating a bit of excitement wherever it chooses to be. Energetically speaking, it corresponds with our root chakras, which represent vitality and strength. Quite naturally, this color is also associated with love, intimacy and sensuality. Having this color in your bedroom would guarantee deep romantic feelings that I’m certain would eventually lead to great sleep afterwards! With this color, you want to make sure that you pick the right hue. Picking a bright red hue, for example, would be counterproductive as it would be overstimulating while you’re trying to wind down and in some cases could cause feelings of hostility and irritability. To avoid making that mistake, go for a more burgundy hue that we provide with our beautifully hand-painted 7-piece duvet cover set in Saffron Red. If you’ve been looking to add some spark in the bedroom, here’s your chance!

Purple Reigns

Who wouldn’t want to feel like a queen or king atop their cherished throne while preparing for sleep? With a beautiful color like this, we wouldn’t blame you! This color is a byproduct of blue and red, instantly reminding us of a richer way of being. From another, this color is associated with the imagination and the grounding of emotions. Have you ever felt incredibly calm after sitting in a room filled with purple accents? Did you find that your nerves immediately relaxed after taking a nice sniff of fresh lavender? Having the color purple to blanket yourself in during your slumber would really help you get some quality rest. If you’re looking for the perfect way to add this color to your wardrobe, check out our intricately hand-painted 7-piece Indian bedding designs in Plum Purple. Go on and indulge in this luxury!

Golden Beacons

Home Furnishings, Banarsi Designs)

Channel the warmth of the sun with the source of its color! Throughout the world, it is symbolic of incredible weath and prestige. A derivative of yellow, this golden hue is still radiant enough to illuminate everything around it in a very positive way. Ever wonder why medals are always made in gold? It’s because it represents success! Not to mention it promotes wisdom. You certainly can’t go wrong with this color in your bedroom. Lucky for you, we have strikingly hand-painted 7-piece bedding sets available in Dark Gold ready to be claimed. Immerse yourself in energizing triumph!

Grounding Brown

Ok, so maybe you’re wanting to tone it down a bit in the bedroom. Are you wanting more of a neutral color that will still make an impact on your overall bedroom décor? That’s an easy one!

How to Re-Vamp Your Living Room

At one time or another, we’ve all gotten the itch you can’t ignore – the itch to do something different with your home, to redecorate and to re-vamp your living space. Short of doing an entire room makeover though, it can be tough knowing how you can freshen up your living room without breaking the bank or worse – committing to weeks of work. Here are some cool, easy ways to re-vamp your living room that you can do today!

Create A Low Key Sitting Area

Who needs chairs? This super simple set up certainly doesn’t. You can easily create a modern, relaxed sitting area in your home with big, thick pillows or odd couch cushions, a rug and a small table, tray or magazine rack. You and your guests can kick off your shoes, cozy up with a cup of tea and lose yourself in a good book.

Punch Up Your Colors

Maybe the idea of actually having to rearrange the furniture makes you cringe, but you’re still craving a boost to your living area. It’s easy to get bored of the same colors day in and day out, and by simply swapping out a few pillows, rugs and throws, you can make your space feel new again without any effort at all. Our accent pillow covers come in a variety of colors and zipping them up over your current pillows is a great way to instantly add a punch of color to your living room in no time.

Sticker Shock

No time to paint? No problem! Custom wall decals are a super fun and easy way to give your living room a new look and feel without breaking out the paint buckets. Whether you go with ornate visuals or words of inspiration, wall decals add personality to drab, blank walls. Many decals can be removed and reapplied, giving you the option to change things up whenever you feel like it.

There are tons of fun ways to give your living room a new look and feel without spending thousands of dollars on new furniture or committing to a huge remodel. You can cure the itch to do something different with the most used room in your home with any of these fun ideas, and since they’re not expensive or time and effort intensive, it’s no big deal when you decide it’s time to change things up again!
