Home Decor Ideas From HGTV
Get Creative With Firewood
If there’s anything we’ve learned from Chip and Jo Gaines, it’s that firewood can be used for so much more than making a fire. If creatively placed, firewood can add a decorative touch to your living room. Stack wood in your built-in bookcases or even in your fireplace if you don’t use it regularly. Firewood can be stored in beautiful baskets, in wine racks, or in just about anything for a little craftsman appeal.
Just Add House Plants
The easiest way to add life and color to your living spaces is to add house plants. Palms are especially en vogue at the moment. With large leaves that absorb the sunlight warm up your living room corners, these beautiful plants give you a taste of the tropics every day of the year. For smaller spaces, succulents can provide a pop of color and even health benefits—if you decide to put some aloe vera in your bathroom.
Choose a Fun Backsplash
A little tile work is an easy way to add a fun pattern to any wall or surface—especially if it’s in the kitchen or bathroom. Use ceramic pieces you find at a garage sale or purchase tiles from a home goods store and install them on the surface of your choice. Many homes rely on neutral color palettes or solid design, so tilework is often a fun way to add a little pattern to your life.
Shop the Garage Sales
Open shelving has become all the rage. But what should you put on them? Really anything that you can find at a garage sale. Place old books on bookshelves with the pages facing out for a uniform look and feel. Try using glass ashtrays to store car keys or jewelry. Use clocks, cameras, or other electronic items that no longer work as bookends or decor. Use ceramic vases or bowls for potted plants. The possibilities are endless!
