4. Add Colour to Your Room

Gone are the days of color coordinating everything from the walls, rugs, furniture to the bed covers and curtains. Bringing in a contrasting pop of color here and there will give the room an energetic vibe. If your room is decorated in cool tones, bringing in a warm tone will give life to the room.

5. Window Dress to Impress

Window dressing is not only used to block the sunlight in the room but the curtains used thoughtfully would create an element of interest. Light colored curtains could be used to make the room look more spacious, while darker ones would give an illusion of elegance. Either way, how your window is dressed has a great impact on the overall look.
