When they say, "home is where the heart is," they don't really lie. Nothing beats the wonderful feeling of coming home to your wonderful little pad and unwinding with a cup of tea in hand. And when you look around, surveying your kingdom of luxury, every little corner, every curio becomes a reflection of your personality. So why not shake things up a bit and make your home look truly interesting. Sometimes, even a change as seemingly small as changing the hue of your lights can bring about a wonderful change in the ambience and inadvertently, your health.
So, here are 8 nifty decor ideas that will transform your apartment into a classy pad with ease.
1. A fancy looking mirror can make rooms come alive.
Mirrors are ideally, the most understated of all home decor pieces. And when they're versatile enough to transform the look of the room, it doesn't make sense to invest in a simple bevelled mirror. Thrift shops and antique stores host a number of refurbished gems that with a little upkeep can make your room look regal. Or you can add a mirror to a vintage frame and put it on display.
2. Colourful accent pieces can add that playful touch to your boring decor.
If you've always had those basic sofas and upholsteries, you can always switch this up by adding a slight pop of colour to tie the room together. A colourful rug or a bright cushion can serve as a wonderful accent piece. A pretty looking lamp, a futuristic art print on a wall and even a fun coloured seating cushion can turn the look of the room around.
3. A dedicated home lighting system to add that panache.
Nothing will turn the ambience of your home sweet home around better than a smart lighting system and that too from Philips Lighting no less. Simply replace your bulbs with the ones from the Hue range and experience mood lighting like no other. Their lighting range enhances everyday moments and just simply adds to the ambience with their different hues. You can choose from wake up, energize, relax and sleep modes. Their Starter kit comprising 3 bulbs and a bridge connector will ensure that you have mood lighting that doesn't break the bank. Visit the Philips Hue website to know more about them.
4. Add a fancy lamp for that touch of old-world glamour.
A simple looking lamp is enough to bring an elegant appeal to your home. And when you pick something as classy as the Dew floor and table lamps from Philips Lighting, you're bound to receive compliments for your interior decor skills. Pick their suave table top lamp for the corner table or the floor lamp for a corner that spells comfort and decadence. Know more about their range of products here.
