When you add a mirror, to a room, you’re instantly creating the illusion of depth. We love large mirrors placed anywhere in a room – Even when placed leaning against a wall, a mirror makes any room in the home more interesting.

Create separate spaces with an area rug.

Area rugs are simple ways to amp up the style in any room. The magic of an area rug is it can create distinction between room or bring a room together. Not to mention, adding a rug to a room also contains sound – which means your nosy neighbor will know less of what’s going on in your home.

Invest in some unique wall art.

Wall art is personal, we get it. But instead of opting for simple paintings or photos for your walls, go for something more haute. We love artwork that is floor to ceiling or decorative tapestries that add culture.
