Easy Ways to Make a Plain Room Look Nice with Joss & Main

I love watching people remodel their spaces, but often I don't have the time or the budget for a huge remodel. Over time, I've learned that you can make a plain room look nice by making smart decorating decisions. For instance, rearranging a room is a simple way to improve its function and change things up without power tools. Luckily retailers like Joss & Main make it easy to feel inspired and up-to-date with trends with their seasonal edits! Here are some other ways to use decorative items to make a plain room look nice and drastically improve a space:

How to Decorate a Plain Room

Use bold colors- bold, high energy hues are trending and using them in strategic places is a great way to accentuate features...or hide them. Choose a colorful pair of lamps or even a bold wall color like in our primary bedroom.

Use natural materials- bringing nature in instantly adds life to any room and sometimes that's just what a boring space needs! A simple white room with lots of woven accessories or plants stops me in my scroll every time!

Don't forget about art- No fancy millwork? No problem! Add art to immediately add interest to a wall. Keep it eclectic by using a combination of small art, oversized art, textile art, and gallery walls. Surrealism is trending and Joss & Main has plenty of options to choose from. I adore this textile art and bonus- it would fill a lot of wall space!

Use expressive and interesting shapes and silhouettes. One of my favorite things to do when designing a room is to add a bold 'moment'- an interesting mirror rather than a simple round one made such a difference. This is especially important for 'plain' rooms without a lot of architectural interest. This rattan mirror is a perfect example of a statement piece that catches your eye (and detracts from a basic dresser). Unexpected and whimsical furniture pieces infuse new life into a plain room.

Textiles are your friend- think pillows, throw blankets, rugs (yes, even over carpet- see above!). A thoughtfully chosen rug accomplishes something that even the most beautiful flooring does not. Textiles warm up a space and add interest and livability. 

Here are some of my favorite finds from the edit.
