Books as decor!
Books can personalise a space like nothing can. They also make living rooms interactive, where visitors can reach out and immerse themselves while you fix a great Sunday meal.
Tip: Set them in unexpected places: a windowsill, a side table, in the loo!

Create ambience with light
Playing with light and shadow is a surefire way to create mood and atmosphere, no matter how small the space. Pick an element that you would like to highlight – a side table, a sofa, an armchair – and then look for a lighting fixture that complements it.
Tip: If you’re going for a fun, quirky feel, get yourself a lava lamp to give your space a groovy ‘70’s feel. Fairy lights lighten up a tight space, while a compact table lamp adds warmth to a bare area.

Jazz up that couch
Can’t afford to ditch your old couch? There’s still a way to make it look new by throwing in some statement cushions to lift the vibe. They may be a little pricier than your ordinary cushions, but they’re worth it for the personality they add to a space.
Tip: To give a themed feel to the area, add some coasters or an ashtray that match your cushions in either style or colour.
