Decorating Ideas

Some people enjoy a simple home, others prefer the popular rustic design, while the third go all in and just love to be trendy, glamorous and picture-perfect. That’s why every inch of their home is spotless and elegant, but achieving this level of perfection is never easy. You have to put in a lot of time and effort into it, and also know how to make your home glamorous, yet still useful. If you too want to achieve such an effect, here are a few ideas that could turn your home from simple to glamorous in a matter of hours.

Glamorous colours in the dining room

This might seem like the simplest idea in the world, but you wouldn’t believe how effective it really is. Giving your indoor space a new look by changing the colour of the walls is an easy and elegant trick that requires very little work and investment, while the outcome is more than amazing.

Start with just one room – the dining room could be quite perfect, for instance – and discover the effect of these vibrant colours, and you’ll see how much they can change your perception of your indoor space and the way you experience it on a daily basis. Once you start noticing the positive effects of vibrant colours on your dining room walls, you’re going to want to repaint every room in your home right away!


Glamorous décor in the living room

This is another simple solution that goes a long way: introducing new décor into your living room won’t just elevate the level of glam in your home, but also show your guests how much attention you pay to your interior design. And that’s the effect we’re all going for.

Picking unusual décor is a cool idea to explore, and if you love travelling, don’t be afraid to incorporate some of the things you brought back from your trips into your living space. Unusual decorations from all over the world can work well with your personal style and are instantly going to take your home’s appeal to a whole new level.


Glamorous innovations in the backyard

If you’re lucky enough to live in a house with a huge backyard, making the most out of it is the only way to maximize the glamour of your home and make it more appealing than ever. Designing a porch, a patio or a deck is a simple project that will give you lots of possibilities and allow you to spend more time in the open, enjoying the fresh air and the natural sunlight.

Another idea you should explore is creating a relaxation area on your porch. You don’t have to do a lot, but installing an elegant and luxury spa will do the trick and give your home all the glamour it needs. Moreover, it’s going to give you your own personal corner, where you’ll be able to relax and take your mind off everyday things, and that’s something we all need from time to time.


Glamorous plants in the bedroom

Most people don’t realize this, but adding plants to your living space comes with a number of health benefits – from purifying your air and lifting your spirits to clearing toxins and preventing schizophrenia and depression. Plants will do you well on more levels than one, and incorporating them into your bedroom might be one of the best things you’ve done in your life.

Plants also serve as an amazing décor element and complement all the colour choices you’ve made in your bedroom. They work well with various wall colours and furniture pieces, and if you put your mind to it, you’ll certainly find ways to add as many plants into your bedroom as possible – but make sure you don’t forget about leaving enough manoeuvring space in there!


As you can see, raising the level of elegance and chic in your home isn’t as hard as it seems and all you have to do approach this idea calmly and practically. Try not to overdo it because you’ll just end up living in a tacky space nobody is going to appreciate and, instead, go step by step and pump up the glamour gradually until you’ve reached the effect you were going for.
