Have you ever looked at a space in your home and thought: Everything in here is great, but this room still seems a little... blah? If so, consider adding one of these five things.
It's not just brides who need something old and something new. Mixing up pieces from different eras will give a room an interesting, textured look you just can't get with furniture that's all brand new. (And if you skew more towards antique pieces, try adding one thing that's super modern.)
There's nothing like a little bit of shine — be it silver, gold, brass, what have you — to add a little zing to a room. Just keep in mind that a little goes a long way.
Texture gives rooms richness and depth. Things like warm woods and natural fibers are interesting to touch and interesting to look at, too. Here are six different ways to add texture to a room.
Something you can't buy at a store.
Whether it's a vintage painting you got at a garage sale or a rug you got at a souk in Morocco or a blanket that your grandma made for you, a unique, one-off piece is guaranteed to give any room a little extra pizzazz.
Don't be afraid to add something you love that's just a little weird. It might make you do a double take — but it'll also make you love your home that much more.
