Plain to Perfect!

Ever felt like an area in your home needed a little sprucing up but you're not quite sure what it needs? Look no further! Sometimes all your home needs is a little bit of color and a little bit of lovin! Taking your space from plain to perfect is an easy thing to do and can be done for not that much dough. 

Here's what you need: 

A small accent table: 
Can be found at a home goods store or even a vintage shop. 

A few fashion or art books displayed: 
If you have any books lying around the house that have colorful covers or any type of fashion or art book will do the job. I personally love the look of fashion books displayed on a table so I went with that. 

A lamp: 
A lamp that is not your ordinary lamp can take your space from boring to fabulous in seconds. I love the idea of a patterned lamp base. It brightens the space and adds a visually interesting layer to the area. I have found some seriously cool lamp bases at Target and other online sites. Grab a lampshade that you already own and turn your old lampshade into an awesome piece that's easy on the wallet. 

Colorful artwork: 
Since I love art (it was my major in college!), I created the painting behind the accent table to add some major color to the space, but you don't have to be an artist to get a cool look. You can find inexpensive paintings at low prices pretty much anywhere. Adding artwork behind the accent table will instantly add color and warmth to the space. 

An accent chair: 
I decided to add a patterned accent chair to anchor the space and liked the idea of having a place to sit. If you have room for it, it's another way to create a small seating area to read a book or have a spot of tea. 

A few accessories: 
I completed the look with a mirrored candle to add some bling as well as a couple of my grandfather's scotch glasses to add some gold glam and richness to the table. I grabbed some faux roses in a vase for a dash of elegance. Lastly, I added a pink bottle underneath the table and voilĂ  , the area was complete!

All in all, this is a great and aesthetically pleasing way to make your space more colorful and charming. You'll love it! Enjoy! 

Ciao for now!
