Many of you may not be certified interior designers, but would like to give a room in your home a bit more life. Well, I am here to give you a few simple decorations that can liven up that plain room.
Books and magazines:
Many of us have piles of books and magazines, and good news is they don’t have to go to waste. Here are some simple ways you can use them to decorate your rooms:
· A library of your favorite books, or a couple of magazines on a coffee table or night stand are a key to décor while keeping your periodicals organized.
· Installing floating shelves is another way to organize your books and add some flare to a room.
· Bookends can be placed alongside shelves to hold books. According to a New York Times article, Brooklyn-based interior designer Billy Cotton says, “You have to look at bookend as you would a small object or sculpture.” Don’t have a Michelangelo sculpture handy? No problem! Bookends will do the job! Isn’t that interesting?
Art work, Mirrors and Frames:
Remember that old art you have stored away? Did you find a piece of art at a thrift shop or garage sale, but don’t know where to put it? It’s time to make use of them! But how….?
