#Furniture With Character
Matching ugly furniture sets are a thing of the past (as they should be). Don’t fall into the trap of buying a whole set of matching pieces for the whole room. In order to create balance, a room needs a mix and match of old and new. Invest in pieces with history, who have character, texture, and something interesting about them. Choose pieces that have a polished, sophisticated and fun look. Also look for something that has a slight color variations form all the other pieces you have.

#No Wires Hanging
This is a super easy rule to remember. Wires everywhere makes your home look cheap. While we live in a highly technological world and our homes are filled with appliances that have a ton of wires, it’s important to keep them hidden. Having wires sticking out from every corner will bring down an elegant room and creates the feeling of clutter. Tuck the wires behind the appliances or go for wireless devices. You can also get creative and create DIY spaces to hide them behind.

A rug can really tie a room together, if chosen the right way. Find a beautiful, big rug that can hold all the furniture of the space (for example the sofa and coffee table area) without any pieces hanging out of the corners. This is very important as an ill-fitting rug can make your home go from rich to cheap in seconds. Also make sure to go for a durable, stain-resistant rug that still has a luxury feel to it.

Details are everything. It’s those finishing touches that really help the home have that expensive feel to it. We are talking about the door handles, the light switches, the sockets, the curtain rods and so on. The things that are often overlooked, but that can pull the room together.

Textures are another great way to give a home some character. Adding different textures, for example a mix of bed pillows, that still go with the general aesthetic and the color scheme are a great way to bring in some life to the space. Don’t be afraid to experiment, just make sure the items you are bringing into the room are cohesive with the vibe.
