Are you looking to update your home on a budget? Tackling DIY projects around your home can not only add value, but can also make the space more livable for you and your family. The good news is there are plenty of easy upgrades you can do yourself without spending a bunch of money.

  1. Do Some Painting

One of the easiest and least expensive ways to update the look of your home  on a budget is to give it a fresh coat of paint. You can tackle the interior or even give your home a new look on the outside. Another easy idea that can change the look outside your home is to use gel stain to paint the front door to your house. You could also paint your garage doors to match, which will add plenty of curb appeal.

  1. Update Your Light Fixtures

You can change the look of any room in your house by investing in new light fixtures. A drop-down chandelier could take your dining room or master bedroom from standard to exceptional. Or you could add dimmer lights to change the look and create ambiance in your living room. Here’s an article from Home Depot about how to use chandeliers in your home: http://www.homedepot.com/c/chandeliers_HT_BG_LF.

  1. Revamp your Master Suite

Your master suite is probably one of the places you spend the most time in at home, even if you spend most of your time sleeping in it. Why not make it a place you can’t wait to escape to? You can completely revamp your master bedroom by investing in a few unique elements. You could purchase some beautiful new bedding complete with fluffy throw pillows. Or you could create your own little reading nook with a cozy chair and lamp. Another idea would be to create an accent wall with faux leather wall panels to add some beauty and elegance to the room. Talissa Decor has a great line of Faux Leather Wall Panels available.

A painting is a very important accessory for your bedroom which must be chosen with much care and attention.

We all love our bedroom don’t we? And more then love we want it to offer us the perfect background for peace and comfort.

We want to beautify the bedroom with interesting accessories that once again reflect our visions and passions. Of course any painting will be chosen regarding your personal taste but I recommend you to also be careful at the colors and the combinations in the bedroom. You have to have in mind the style of the painting, the furniture and all the decorations in the bedroom. A professional decorator will tell you that harmony is the secret of a perfect room.

A professional decorator will tell you that for a calm ambiance the greatest painting will be one with a landscape no matter the style of the technique used. Don’t over exaggerate and search for paintings with nice and fresh colors. If you choose this kind of painting you will automatically feel more relaxed and you will rest better. If you have a bedroom that expresses fun and passion go for a painting with lavish colors, or black and white. These are very fancy and modern.

Avoid paintings that express too dynamic images or events like volcanic eruptions, wild waterfall or severe storms. These are paintings for hallways or living rooms. These kind of paintings do not reflect relaxation or calmness so you won’t have a restful sleep because your subconscious will see these like a threat. You need peaceful landscapes. You’d like a painting with a stream in the wood with water lilies, trees bending, calm rivers. Don’t go for paintings that display stagnation. You need alive paintings that make you feel fresh.

Lighting really makes a difference!

lighting

We already agreed that our home is the greatest place where our mind and body find relaxation and peace and that is why every detail is important no matter how big or small it is.

Lighting is another aspect which must be discussed in order for us to mix everything in a perfect ” smooth” result.

In what concerns me I really prefer natural light because doesn’t affect our eyes and natural light has the properties of relaxing and emanates energy vibrations. But of course natural light doesn’t last all day and because of that we need to take into consideration what kind of lighting is more suitable for our house.

Well we need to choose our lightning in such a manner that it will always give us a good mood and never feel that we are irritated by the light because if this happens that the light we chose is wrong. Let’s take a look at some lighting ideas for your living room.

I would start with light layers which we usually choose because we want to give a little more energy to the room without having corners with no illumination. This layers are a great idea if you have a large living room with many details you want to be noticed.

My favorite lightning remain chandeliers: You can choose a chandelier which will really go perfectly with the furniture, or only with an item from the room, you can choose chandeliers that reflect your personality ( extravagant, eccentric, more classic, simple, jolly). Chandeliers are really a detail that makes an enormous difference. In case you have an Italian design living room, you need to take into consideration that you need a glamorous chandelier not a simple one.

Glamour-Italian-Chandeliers

 

But if you have a fresh living room which reflects energy and nature you can easily chose a chandelier which shows your love for nature and bright colors.

If your lovely living room has a fireplace than you really must lighten it and make it feel loved and appreciated. Choose elegant scones which usually are attached to the wall so the light falls perfectly on the item you want to be lighten. Sconces are often equipped with shades or glass diffusers which can make the light softer. You might take into consideration to install a pair of sconces. The light given by the sconces is a relaxing, often romantic one which really makes you feel safe.

Some people want their rooms to be fully lighten and to assure themselves that they see everything without struggling that is why many people appeal to Recessed Lighting which because to halogen, incandescent or compact florescent bulb the light can be positioned exactly on the spot you want to be lighten.

For those persons who want they entire house to inspire love and romance than they must choose fire lights which resonate perfectly with grace, romance and love. They will lead you to a cozy feeling and they will melt your heard. So arrange some candles on a tray suspended from the ceiling and you made 80% of the romantic atmosphere. This lightning will invite you to nostalgia and to always warm your soul feelings. I would personally choose this type of lightning for a chalet or a beach house where we go in holiday.

101879652.jpg.rendition.largest

These types of lightning are especially created for different types of living rooms. You can inspire yourself with my ideas and create your own special way of lighten your living room. Everything starts with a sparkle!

Autumn is the perfect season for a change.

autumn decorations for living room

Autumn is the perfect season to redecorate your living room. The beauty of this season is that it comes with warm colors and joyful details which you can play with in your living room. You have so many colors from which to pick: yellow, red, brown, ruddy and all of them reflect calmness and transform your house in a cosy place.

Autumn decorations for your living room will definitely give you a reason to come back home full of joy.

Just imagine watching how rain falls on the Earth cleaning its “skin” while you are sitting in your living room where it smells like fresh pears and apples and soft leafs are sitting quietly on your coffee table.

For a more rustic living room, a fireplace can’t miss. Choose to have white soft chairs with golden arms and put them near the fireplace. Enjoy a hot chocolate and a book while you hear the symphony of the rain. You can also pick a white fluffy carpet because white goes perfectly with a brown vintage furniture and offers more luminosity to your living room. If you want your living room more rustic try to transform a wall by making it from wood. It will definitely give a sophisticated tone to your precious room.

autumn-inspiration-for-interior-designs-1

Let’s imagine how an elegant full of autumnal details  room would look like: modern meets Autumn. This is a perfect combination for romantic souls. Don’t be afraid to combine natural colors like the soft cast of an apricot or an orange and a light white. If you have large windows these will allow to beautify them with silk drapes which can only give you a feeling of peace. Try to pick a coach which can go perfectly with the colors you have chosen for your walls or drapes. You can also choose a white sofa and some elegant classy pillows in nuances of apricot. You must have a glass table on which you can put a stylish plate full of tasty fruits and graceful coffee set. Let your imagination run and put a large mirror on the wall and decorate it with a coronal made of leafs. A wood table in the back of your sofa on which your beloved books wait for you until you will explore them again.  All these details will make your living room greater than a spa.

Play with shades: they are full of energy as we all know. Combine white with shades of brown or orange and decorate your fireplace with autumnal flowers in a big simple vase. You can also pick branches or rusty leaves to show your fireplace that it is very important for you. Go simple and leave your walls white for more brightness but you can choose a dark carpet for contrast. You want to find peace in here and serenity. Make yourself comfortable with some reddish soft pillows and a furry blanket. Make yourself a pleasure and enjoy a delicate wine, because we know that Autumn is the season for perfect wines.

fireplace-mantle-ideas-candles

Candles can’t miss from your living room. Chose brown or yellow candles an make a magic corner for them. The light emanated from the candles, relaxes your body. Bring autumn inside and show it that you appreciate it by choosing a dark carpet with leafs details on it, with some shades of brown and gold.
