Decorating can be fun. But it can also be expensive. As much as we all wish it didn’t, decorating a magazine-worthy home costs a lot of money. But if you were to focus on the essentials without having to splurge for a still luxurious change, read our guide on 5 ways to glam your space this season!
1) Mirror Shine
Mirrors have the ability to elevate a certain surrounding be it a room space or a bedroom to give us an illusion of enlarged space. While you’re at it picking a mirror, pay attention to the details and your motive to add a mirror to your space. For example, a mirror with a metallic surfaces helps add a luxe look to any room. For an even more glamorous look, add a thin and refined gilded mirror in between artworks.
2) Light up Your House
Lights to light up the mood in the room! One can instantly feel a change by introducing an ornamental or sculptural lamp for a masculine or classy take on glam. Your guest will be impressed over an unusual lighting fixture hanging over your dining table; acting as a focal point while adding a level of artistic flair. From geometric shapes to glass bell pendants, the possibilities are endless when it comes to selecting your lighting.
3) Add Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers can instantly lift the mood of a room; the bigger the bouquet, the more luxurious the look. That’s not to say you need a huge ostentatious display on every surface, but make sure any bouquets you display are not sparse, but rather full and lush. A big, bountiful bouquet of flowers on a coffee table adds instant class. Flimsy displays make it look like you cheaped out.
4) Instead of Many Pieces,Add One Piece
Nothing gives a room a sense of wisdom and history more so than a lovely antique. You don’t need to spend a fortune, just find something that looks like you might have picked it up at a Paris flea market. Large-scale accessories like lamps, mirrors, and pieces of furniture are great, but small accessories can also do the trick. Antique boxes, sculptural wall sconces, or even antique picture frames can give your room a certain je ne sais quoi that makes it look like you spent more than you really did.
5) Simplicity Is the Key
Because you’re looking to update rather than completely make over your house, accentuate what’s already great about the space. There’s a common misconception that adding things to a room makes it look more chic and expensive. In order to create a sophisticated-looking space, simplify your styling and pare things down. Giving items space to breathe means they can really stand out and shine.
