Sometimes, and it is only natural, that we tire of looking at the same space over and over. Humans are an inquisitive race by nature, and becomed bored when our scenery becomes too familiar. Changing any of the spaces in your home doesn't have to be an arduous task, in fact, you can make seemingly big changes just by adding a few new details or decorations. In this article, we aim to show you how you can make minor, and hopefully inexpensive changes to your home, whilst achieving maximum impact to your space.

Whether you are following current home decorating trends, or following your own style, you can let your creative side run wild and add quirky little elements to completely change the look and feel of a space. From living rooms to bedrooms, the simple addition of a candle, rug, or wall hanging can freshen and add life to any space. So, without further ado, take a look at some great home decorating ideas from our homify India experts.

Fresh ambience

Is your couch or bed in need of a bit of colour and vitality? Then, the easiest and simplest way to add both of those effects is with throw cushions! You are really at liberty to choose whatever pattern or texture that catches your eye. However, we do recommend you try to match the rest of the space as much as possible. If you are fortunate enough to be working with a relatively blank canvas, you can let your creative license be the decider! We absolutely love the choices available from Fatfatiya Design. These are the perfect element to add a bit of fun and excitement to any room!

Paper heroes

On a slightly larger scale, you can completely transform a room by putting up some wallpaper! Nowadays, contrary to the tedious task it was once was, putting up wallpaper has become far easier, and is a far less permanent solution than it was once upon a time. Glue is now water soluble, so, when the time has come that you are tired of the print, you can hire a steam cleaner, and quickly and easily remove the existing paper. The selection these days is amazing too! Let your walls be a permanent art installation, and wow your guests and family when they visit. Of course, before you make any drastic wallpaper changes, check that it suits the existing furniture in your room. 

Rugged up

Not only do they add warmth, and evoke feelings of cosiness, rugs are a great and relatively cost effective decorating solution. Suitable for every room in the house, you can add colour, texture and pattern through your floors. The available choice of size and shapes has skyrocketed in recent years, as with the range. From budget through to high-end, you can find a rug that will suit your needs and bank balance. The beauty of a rug is that it is not a fixed object; perhaps use it in the living room one week, and the bedroom the next? The possibilities are endless. 

Mirror, mirror

Decorative mirrors, just like art, hang on your walls and give a room personality and character. This wonderful example by Studio Interiors Infra Height has a beautiful and intricate gemstone pattern, which radiates in an almost sun like fashion. The colour and pattern complements the intricate wallpaper the mirror is placed against, and further adds charm and elegance to the wall. A simple spotlight has been placed above the mirror to focus on its details—this is a great idea if you have sentimental or important pieces hanging on your walls. The other beneficial factor of using mirrors is that they add extra space, so if you are looking to decorate a small hallway or entrance, you can create a wonderful optical illusion of additional room with such a simple element!

Green & gold

Adding a touch of greenery to your home, whether artificial or real, adds life and harmony to any space. If you believe in Feng Shui, greenery is a fundamental and essential decorative element. It is nice to be reminded that despite the fact we are indoors, inside a man-made structure, that we can feel as though (even just a little!) like we are outside. We forget, with all the advances in modern technology, that it is only a natural yearning for human beings to be close to nature. This beautiful shrine also reminds us of our spiritual nature, and that even in our homes and within our busy lifestyles, that we have time to reflect and speak to our inner psyche.
