It isn’t always about the budget or the amount that you spend to make your rooms look prettier; it’s also the creative side of your brain that works the little magic. The slight alterations can do it all. Beautiful things don’t have to be expensive, do try and hunt around in the local market and exhibitions for spectacular finds. A little effort behind the hunt will be worth it and you can unearth real treasures. Develop a keen sense of style by observation and of course, scouring the World Wide Web for design inspiration.
Imagine coming back home after a long day, and the minute you enter your living space the positive vibrations from all the prettiness in your home can be absolutely magical. Home should be a sanctuary from the stress and strain of life and one has to take care to make and keep it special.

Art that you are planning to hang on your wall plays a big role . Choosing the right one before you invest is obvious and important. Some art may be too complicated to understand and some will strike the right note in you.Go with the good vibe that certain art gives you and invest in it. After all “a thing of beauty is a joy forever”.And if you are decorating your room on a budget, then work with something made by you or your family. Framing up pictures drawn by children, memorabilia collected on vacations or over the years can all constitute art albeit on a very personal and meaningful note.
2.Simplify your styling methods
A cluttered, overly accessorized living room can look untidy and disorganized, rather than chic and stylish. Pare down your collection, and retain pieces that are truly meaningful or evoke strong memories. A simplified space will enable the remaining elements to really shine.

7.Lead kindly Light !
Lighting can absolutely make or break a space. Nothing can be worse and more depressing than cold white tube lights throughout the home. It’s your home not an office ! By all means have brighter lighting as task lights, but once done switch them off and turn on the warm atmospheric mood lighting and create a beautiful haven.
