Tired of that same old look of your living room? Well, it is always a great idea to make a couple changes every now and then so as to present a fresher feel. All you will need to do is make sure this is done correctly — otherwise, you may end up getting unexpected results. Now I want to share with you 10 easy methods to bring some freshness to your interior decoration using simple yet highly effective strategies.

1. Transform your windows into a center of attraction
Rather than keeping the seats facing the table (as is tradition), you can do things the Parisian way and have them angled out toward the window. This gives you a chance to enjoy the outdoor scenery from the comfort of your living space.
2. Add a bit of colour to your cabinets
A wonderful paint job in the interior of your closet can bring some brightness and warmth to an otherwise light and dull room. A popular color choice to go for in that situation is pink — famous for its merry look and feel.

3. Less clutter, better appearance
A simple yet effective way to earn your living space seem new again is by decluttering it. Keep the toaster, mixer, microwave, juicer and coffee maker away, magazines, bags etc. off, and your home will seem all fresh.
4. Refashion your chairs with cushions
Pillows offer an inexpensive way to change the outlook of an area by introducing a little bit of colour and diversity. Large pillows have a tendency to do this task better than small ones.
5. Change your drawer knobs and pulls
Have a trip to your nearest hardware and request heavy-duty, expensive-looking knobs. You can find ones with a golden or silvery finish and bring them onboard to bring the special look you would like.
6. Insert a floral touch
Put a few flowers around the home to bring a fresh source of fresh air in the room. Otherwise, go for potted ferns, potpourri or wreaths.
7. Warm things up a bit with a fireplace
Nothing beats a faux fireplace in adding ambiance to unexpected places. You can find a ready-made unit or build your own mantle with a pleasant looking collection of candlesticks.

8. Settle for a motif in children’ chambers
You do not need to be too serious when it comes to decorating your kids’ rooms or toilet. Just choose a theme and go with it.
9. Rely on folding screen to deliver a striking accent
Whether made of bamboo, wood or paper, decorative screens are flexible, odd and are certain to bring a touch of Zen to any living area.

10.Change the light
Replace your normal lighting fittings with designer ones for a more elegant appearance. Consider going for floor lamps and table lamps to raise the elegant feel around your dwelling. I like the Jonathan Adler Gold bamboo chandelier on the photograph above.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of things you can do to improve the appearance and feel of your living room.
