Décor Tips for a More Sophisticated Look
So, you bought a beautiful home – you have the space, but now it’s time to decorate.
You want sophistication, but don’t want to blow your budget. Well, here are a few tips to help add that extra hint of elegance without breaking the bank.
LARGE CANVAS PRINTS
Add interest to an otherwise neutral space by featuring large, colorful abstract prints.
LESS IS MORE
Reducing the amount of items you have out on display can make your home look more fresh and sleek. A few large pieces of art presents much better than multiple small pieces, because they can seem like clutter.
MIX VINTAGE WITH MODERN
Refurbishing antiques can add life and modernity to a dated piece of furniture.
PAINT THE CABINETS
If it’s not in your budget to completely redo the whole kitchen, perhaps all it needs is a fresh coat of paint.
As opposed to dishing out quite a bit of money on real fur or leather accents, you can find some amazing faux items without sacrificing on look or price.
Mirrors can both add a little class AND make a room feel larger than it is. They can be a life saver!
GO FOR BRASS
If this classic finish works with your design, switching out standard hardware for brass is a great way to add a luxury feeling to a home almost overnight, and depending on the brand you choose, it won’t break the budget.
Changing out the standard light fixtures for something more tailored to your taste can dramatically change the look of your home.
Whether you have a taste for florals or an elegant jacquard, a unique fabric out there can really make a room much more sophisticated looking.
