Unique home decor items- how to refresh your living room

Do You spend a huge chunk of your life in your living room? Yes? Me too! And now when we have our little one and his toys are everywhere I need to refresh that room a little bit. I want to still have it as our resting room but also we need there a little corner for our boy.
I know that there is a lot of parents who had the same problem. So I will give you some tips, ideas how you can refresh that place without a big effort. What’s more, I will share with you my favorite online shop where you can find an unusual garden and home decor items.

Change the lighting

We have too many lamps on the floor and tables. It’s not really safe for our boy. If you have the same issue there is a simple solution: shift from lamps to sconces to save some table space. Also, I want to change the standard overhead lighting to a nice and unique chandelier.

Hang something nice

We love pictures and photos. To be honest we have too many of them 😀 That’s why I want to hang them on the walls which will add an instant dose of color to the room.
If we talking about walls there is nothing better than refreshing them with nice vibrant color. Maybe yellow will be good?

Add something unique and trendy

I love everything that is unique. I like to know that I have something you will not find in another house. If you want something unheard in your living room you should click here.  You can find there for e.g funky book ends and book shelves.

Most important furniture

What is a center of your living room? I can guess it’s coffee table. It’s same in our home but now when our son is more mobile we need one without glass. The best will be with softer corners/edges. It will be hard to find one but it’s worth it!

More life in that room!

There is nothing better for that than flowers or some plants. Also, you can prepare some nice vases! Lately, I heard about realistic faux flowers. I think I will give them a try because I’m not good with flowers. They are dying very fast ;/

Maybe new rug?

The colorful and bright rug can change your living room in a second. I’ve already found one for our room. I want one with round shape.

Last but not least

One more element which can help you to refresh your room is a sofa. Place where we can rest, sit or even sleep. Best will be corner sofa with a sleeping option for guests.

A little bit more about UncommonGoods

As I mentioned before I love unique items. Not only clothes but everything that is unusual and interesting. It’s even better if those products are created in harmony with the environment without harm to animals or people. Also, I love handmade items! So if you are looking for something like that go to UncommonGoods Hope you will enjoy shopping there as much as I like it 🙂

    I think a new rug is what our little lounge room needs! And something quirky to put on the walls, we have so many big blank white spaces! Thank-you for sharing your ideas.

    These are all great ideas! Lighting is huge for me! I also use daylight light bulbs to get a night bright light in the house.
