Your home is your sanctuary. It's your one and only place to cry, unwind, and eat a few too many cookies without anyone to talk smack about it. Your home is an extension of you and decorating it can be a delightful creative outlet. Whether you're moving into a new space or simply want to refresh your current one, there are plenty of cute and charming ways to infuse personality and style into your humble abode. In this post, we'll explore some creative home decor ideas to help accessorize your spot. 

Imagine like Pimp My Ride but Pimp My Home. 

1. Create an extra layer of Cozy with a Plush Rug

Nothing transforms a room quite like a soft, plush rug. It not only adds warmth but also acts as a centerpiece for your decor. Try the You Are Beautiful rug for an added flare of uniqueness and positive vibes to your space. Or opt for a more subtle Living Room Area rug to add to the coziness during a late-night movie binge. 

2. Embrace Greenery with Indoor Plants

Plants breathe life into your living spaces, literally! Consider adding some succulents, hanging plants, or a stylish indoor tree to your home. 

Did you know that Snake Plants actually help absorb radiation? Stick it next to your Wi-Fi box for a nice added layer of radiation protection that easily goes unnoticed! 

Once you choose your plants, it's now time for the fun part...the POT. The holder of all green living things. Here's some of my favorites: 

Feminine Butt Planter: because who doesn't love embracing the feminine energy?

Hanging Disco Ball Planter: the plant party never stops 

Baby Pig: need I say more? (':

Spunky Bubbly Planter: for a more neutral, modern look 

Glossy Planters: they kind of resemble a mushroom and gives an elegant, simple vibe. I love it 

3. Illuminate with Elegant Candle Holders

Who doesn't love a good candle? It can really transform the essence of a room's environment. Fall season? Light a cinnamon sugar cookie candle. Winter? Time for a Cedar Leaf.  It's amazing how there's a candle for every occasion. Heck, there's even a candle for nostalgic effects (personally my favorite). It's a nice conversation piece too (:

You can even get really fancy and not even light your candle, instead, opt for a candle warmer light. It adds a level of "sophistication" to a room. A level of "I don't have a lighter, thank you". 

4. Refresh with Throw Pillows

Throw Pillows are one of the easiest ways to upgrade your couch or bed with colorful and unique looks. You can never have enough pillows, I mean look at these cute pastel flower pillows. IT'S SO CUTE, I'M GONNA DIE! Or get a little more personal with the names of your loved ones in full display while watching CNN. 

The options are infinite. 

Here are some of my faves:

Pastel Pumpkins: because its Fall, duh.

Game of Thrones: a great gift for you or fellow GoT fan.

Supaw Bad: Ha, oh come on, do I have to explain?

Knitted Round Throw: Simple, cute and boho chic

Chill Pill: can you think of a better pillow for your bed? All the chill with no side effects.

Red Couple: this is the statement art piece pillow we speak about

Modern Throw Pillow: simple, elegant and chic

just a few ideas to get the mind rolling...

5. Decorate with Wall Art

Bare walls are never fun. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you clearly have never hung up some wall art. Let me help you out. 

It's amazing the difference hanging up paintings can do to add more ✨flare✨.

Picture these (no pun intended)

Love Hearts Graffiti

3 Piece Squiggles

Geometric Color Scultpure

6. Incorporate Floating Shelves

Floating shelves are both practical and aesthetically pleasing.

Use them to display books, plants, awards, or decorative items. Not much else I can say about this other than how nice and put-together your place lookssss.

7. Upgrade Your Furniture

Let's be real, the furniture your mom gave you only works for so long. It's only a matter of time until your "couch" is now your dog's couch and the salsa from Taco Night hasn't faded. It's time to upgrade. Into sectionals? Try out this Cloud Couch Dupe. Plus who doesn't love that first-laying-on-your-new-couch feeling?

You never know how much you need a little book-reading chair until you get a cute book-reading chair. This chair has been so unbelievably comfortable, that I literally side-eye anyone who tries to sit on it.

Once you get that couch, now let's jazz it up. Accompany it with a black accent side table or this gorgeous Mango Wood coffee table! The opportunities are endless. 

8. Layer Your Bed with Luxury Bedding

The average person spends about 26 years of their life sleeping. That's 227,760 hours you spend in your bed, minus trips and sleepovers. The point is, if you spend a good chunk of your life on sheets, wouldn't you like to invest in quality sheets where you'd like to be most comfortable? 

Here's some options to choose from:

Organic Sateen Bed Sheets Set100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton

Minimalist Luxe100% Egyptian Cotton / 1000 Thread Count

or maybe you don't care about the thread count and just want a bed that's comfy and unique to you

Printed Bedding Four-piece Aloe Cotton Bed Sheet

Simple Suite Cotton Bed Sheet

Two-Toned Color Bed

9. Organize with Decorative Storage

This is possibly the most necessary and important tip you can ever hear (or read). Keep your space TIDY and STYLISH with decorative storage solutions. I never understood how my mom kept the place always so clean and put together with all the stuff we had. This. This was her solution. 

Having bins are not cute and having to pay for storage is double not cute. Aside from downsizing and living a minimalistic life, invest in storage organizers that double as furniture. 

Allow for extra seating while having a place to stow your blankets and cushions with this bench. Remotes are useful, when you can find them easily and not between the couch cushions. That's when this coffee table will come in handy. Or better yet, forget about the extra dressers and drawers you'll need! Why not have a bed with secret drawers to store all your essentials? There's more than one to choose from (:

Additional Ideas:

Storage Shelf(with sliding doors to keep things hidden)

Storage Bench (with cubbies)

10. Personalize with Photo Frames

Last but not least, the most essential component of making a house into a home...loved ones. What better way to show off the ones you love than by displaying them across the very place you call home? Place them into frames such as...a simple glass frame, a Fancy Obliquity Picture Frame or a sweet personalized frame.

Either way, it screams I love you, thank you for being a part of my home. 

Happy decorating!
