Giving your home a high-end feel can be challenging, especially if you’re on a tight decorating budget. Fortunately, there are simple ways you can achieve that elegant look you’re aiming for. Interior designers at The Linen Duck share some trade secrets on how to stylishly decorate your home without breaking the bank. Take these tips into consideration on your next home makeover session.

Get new window treatments

A space looks unfinished without window treatments to dress it up. It’s one of the easiest ways to add elegance to your home, as well as some much-needed privacy.

Roman shades go well in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry areas, and entryways. Drapery in natural silk, linen, or cotton works effortlessly in living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms. Having said this, you can create an infinite number of looks for your windows by layering different window treatment styles (i.e. blinds, shades, shutters) or by adding various accessories and hardware.

Pro Tip: Be sure to consult with an interior designer before finalizing your fabric, style, and hardware choices. If you’re living in Nashville TN or surrounding cities, The Linen Duck has a complimentary in-store consultation service. Just book a schedule 3 to 5 days in advance.

Style areas you usually overlook

When it comes to home decoration, your foyer, mudroom, laundry room, and hallway are often overlooked; the kitchen and the living areas usually get the most attention. Going the extra mile and sprucing up these “forgotten” spaces in your home shows your attention to detail and creates a luxurious visual experience for your family and guests.

Pro Tip: Create charming vignettes on your shelves using personal artifacts and plants. Aside from being a visual treat, these are no-fail conversation starters.

Dare to mix and match pillows

Accessorizing your sofa need not be boring. Select up to three different throw pillows with contrasting patterns (but similar color palettes) or order custom pillows to get exactly the look your sofa needs.

Pro Tip: Varying the size and shape of your throw pillows is a great way to add interest without being over-the-top.

Lighting matters

From statement lamps to Moroccan-inspired lanterns, antique chandeliers, dramatic wall lights, and sculptural pieces, lighting adds visual impact to any space.

Pro Tip: Layer light sources to create balance and a warm atmosphere. The Linen Duck carries a large selection of lighting and accessories; you are sure to find something beautiful each time you visit.
