The company is renowned for brilliant life hacks and fun, to the point content, which is vigorously shared across the social media landscape.
This time around, we are presenting decoration hacks, or should we say a decor guide, that can be used for tricking your guests into thinking that you invested much time decorating. Go ahead and give your home a makeover using simple steps, and treat yourself with an interior that is infused with some personality and effortless style.
So fresh, so clean
The first thing to do is to introduce a breath of fresh air with potted plants. Do not worry, some vegetation like Aloe Vera is not only used in alternative medicine and cosmetics, it is quite sturdy. Watering it only once in a while will do the trick, provided that there is sufficient sunlight too. If the air still does not feel clean, do away with unpleasant smells around the apartment by setting scented candles around it.
Now, it is time to utilize all those jars collecting dust around the home. Just put random stuff like salt, sugar or rice in them and display it somewhere. Next, those expecting a party soon, should get their hands on a bar cart and get the liquor out of the freezer. To fill in the shelves, put some herbs in jars with water besides those bottles. Finally, round up the arrangement with a bowl of citrus fruit. There goes a nice focal point and a demonstration of décor skills.
Let us get together
A living room is a hub of domestic life, and also the best place for social gatherings. This means that the couch could finally use a facelift. Use some throw pillows to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. It does not matter how cheap they are, as long as the colors match. It is also a good idea to turn off that overhead fluorescent light, and use lamps and LED strips instead to shed some light. A more intimate ambience is often what it takes to grease the wheels of conversation indeed.
Now, let us turn attention to those blank walls. Even worse, some people tend to keep old movie posters for a lifetime. Pictures from life are always a safe bet, serving as a talking point too, however annoying that can sometimes be. There are many other wall decoration possibilities that will add life to the rooms, so get the creative juices flowing. Feeling better about themselves and impressing the visitors, life hackers can kill two birds with the one stone.
