Between work, meals, and exercise, it can be tough to find the time to perfect your home’s overall look. But you don’t have to spend a lot of time to make your home more attractive – inside and out. Give these 5 quick decorating ideas a try to help elevate your home décor.

Add Mirrors

Mirrors can make rooms appear bigger by reflecting light from the brightest light source in the room onto various surfaces around the room. Place mirrors in a places where light remains constant — such as above your mantlepiece, near the front door, in narrow entryways and hallways, and above or directly across from the bed in bedrooms.

Follow the Rule of Three

Décor is more pleasing to the eye when displayed in odd-numbered groupings. To bring a bit of the outdoors in, we recommend hanging wall art that features botanical designs or birds—or placing similar figurines in groups of three on your mantle or coffee table.

Make Your Front Door Pop

A fresh coat of paint may brighten your front entrance, but a welcoming or whimsical door hanging really makes it stand out. The best thing about door decorations is you can switch them out seasonally to stay in tune with the time of year.

Placing decorative garden art (like yard stakes or Art Poles) in flower beds along your front walk—or on either side of your front door—can help to maintain splashes of color between bloom times.

Don’t Forget Your Floors

A colorful rug strategically placed to anchor furniture legs—or a durable, flat, vinyl rug serving as a standing mat in the kitchen—can add visual interest while protecting your floors. A great rug can also act as an anchor for a room’s color palette, giving you a base off which to select additional furnishings and décor.

The soft tinkle of bells adds a note of grace to a corner by a window, or out on the porch when they catch a fresh breeze.
