Rugs are not uncommon decorative around the world yet are often overlooked when it comes to living room decor. Amp up your living space with handcrafted rugs made of recycled/organic cotton. Let their beautiful, vibrant colours and dramatic, artistic designs add life to your existing decor. Rugs are best used to define areas and work well when you create multiple spaces within the room with rugs. For this, you have to strategically place two or more rugs in a single room to create an illusion of a bigger space.

Houseplants are indeed the best way to add visual breathability and freshen up the room. From succulents to cacti - you will find a variety of indoor plants that don’t need much sunlight and demand little to no maintenance. Small plants are perfect for shelves and succulents survive well even in cold dark corners.

If your furniture is getting old, for instance, add a fresh coat of eco-friendly paint, and you’d be surprised to see how it instantly adds a new life to it. Redecorate your walls by adding frames of your old memories and creating an incredible wall gallery.
Paint the interior walls. You can choose colours that add dynamism, warmth and energy such as gold, cream and red, or those that have a calming effect, such as gray, blue and white.
A conversation on decor ideas mainly revolves around floor, walls, and furniture, but there is more to elevating the aesthetics of living space. Adding sustainably made decor products, like hand-carved oil burners, tealight holder and votives, is a beautiful way to decorate your room and promote ethically styled living.
