If your style is modern and minimal, spruce up (pun intended) with a few air plants or succulents. If you prefer whimsy and boho elements, pile on the lush cattails and artfully undone greenery.
5.) You Can’t Create a Living Room Decor Plan Without a Statement Piece
Ahh, the statement piece. This is the secret weapon of interior designers and savvy home designers (such as yourself.) the statement piece can truly be anything, but generally, it should be sizable. After all, if you can barely see it, it’s not much of a statement! Stuck on what to use? Accent chairs always add some glam to the room. But it doesn’t stop there: a new ottoman, mini bench, chaise lounge, a love seat, or pouf will not only add more seating but update the layout of your space. A jaw-dropping material, pattern or vibrant color can truly create that statement!
