Throw in some colors

Decor tips
Use bright colors to liven up a room.
Liven up a space by adding some happy colors. Opt for bright-colored cushion covers and throws or experiment with bold prints. Swap your grays, blues, and dark hues for pinks or bright colors such as tangerine.

Let there be light

5 home decorating tips  to beat the rainy day blues
Experiment with various lighting. 
Light plays a very important role in the interiors of a home and its décor as it can make a room bigger and more refreshing. But on days when natural light is sparse, experiment with mood lights, scented candles, and even chandeliers to make the house look and feel cozy and inviting. Place floor lamps in corners to eliminate shadows and offer a peripheral illumination that brightens up the entire room.

Aesthetics with a purpose

Make sure a décor also has a function.
Who says that umbrella stands can’t make nice entrance statements? Use a sleek vase or a unique-looking basket at the front door as an umbrella stand which can also serve as entrance décor at the same time. Similarly, use a non-boring coat hanger to wow guests. 

Blooming beauties

Fresh (or even plastic) flowers are a lovely addition to any room.
Fill vases and empty wine bottles with vibrant blooms like sunflowers, rain lilies, or orchids. There is nothing like a house filled with lovely flowers!

Listen to the chimes

The soothing sound of wind chimes lifts moods.
During breezy days, wind chimes give a sweet and pleasant sound. A soothing music can surely lift anyone’s spirit.
