Wall mirror with rope
A mirror on the wall can bring character in a room. Now, to bring a chic twist to the same, hang the mirror using ropes. The sophistication of the mirror balanced with the rustic feel of the rope will definitely give a fresh look to your house.
Embellish your headboard
The same old furniture can start to feel monotonous and although, swapping them for new ones isn’t exactly a good idea, revamping them definitely is. The headboard of your bed can look novel with a few tricks. A piece of fabric, a bedsheet or a patterned scarf can be draped and pinned over it fully or partially to embellish it.
Wall of memories
There’s no better way to add a pinch of change to a home than by adding to it décor that reflects your life. A wall full of your photos, each contained within hand-made frames or pieced together with some artsy hacks would do just that for you.
If your ordinary lamp looks like it needs some refurbishment now, here is a hack. Provided, the lampshade is of a dark hue, you can conjure up a design by poking holes on it. Alternatively, draping another fabric over the old one can be quite appealing too.
