Take a few minutes to put clothes away instead of leaving them on the floor or on your clothes pile chair; wipe off countertops each time they get disgusting, not after, like, the 10th time; and clear up the clutter whenever it starts to build. You might not notice the impact it makes on your life on a daily basis, but it will be much less of a pain in the long run. Bring in a plant.
Houseplants are good for you. They relax you and remove toxins from the air, and that's just the beginning. The smallest little bit of green life in your room can also make the overall aesthetic vibe a lot nicer too. And having to care for it helps make you a more responsible human, so overall, plants are wonderful! Add a mirror.
24 Mini Makeovers You Can Do To Your Home This Weekend
With a mirror, not only will you have a way to look at yourself other than by turning your phone camera on, but you'll get more light bouncing around in the room, and a mirror can make a room look bigger. Hang some wall art. A bare wall can be nice for people who have an ultra minimal design sense, but mostly, bare walls in otherwise full rooms can be really sad.
Hang one big piece, or put up something small in an interesting way, or go all out and make a gallery wall. If framing artwork is out of your budget, you can get creative with washi tape and DIY printouts of pictures you grab from the internet. Change up your lighting scheme. Overhead lighting is fine, but if it's your only light source, you could be doing better. Get a table lamp or a floor lamp to get light coming from different heights around your room.
Candles are great not only for romantic mood lighting but if they're scented, they can make your room less stinky, which is always a good thing. Rearrange your furniture layout. I've been doing this since I was in elementary school. Whenever I get bored with a room but don't have any extra funds to buy new furniture, I move everything around. And while certain rooms only work with furniture organized one specific way, many can handle a radically different arrangement — or even a few different ones.
So try moving stuff around and see your room in a whole new way. Put down a rug. Wherever you do it, a rug gives structure to a space. In addition to softening footfall and adding warmth and texture to the floor, an area rug helps contain a room and the furniture in it otherwise all your stuff is just sort of floating. Even a small rug in your kitchen or in your entryway can be a gamechanger. Or you can layer multiple rugs in one space for added pattern and visual interest. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

As long as an object fulfills its purpose, I'm a happy girl. However, lately I've been trying to add some more flair to my surroundings - I turned my balcony into a jungle, I painted my walls and even added a few framed pictures here and there.
I browsed Pinterest in search of a few decoration ideas and even tried a few of those things, most of which I failed at miserably. So of course I jumped at the chance to have a look at an entire co I've always been more of a pragmatist than the artsy type. So of course I jumped at the chance to have a look at an entire collection of ideas how to visually improve my apartment and maybe even optimize my organization in the process. However, the majority of the projects depicted in this book are rather girly and gaudy, and while I would have loved them ten to fifteen years ago, I feel like I'm too old now to appreciate those things.
Still, I think that Wutschke did a bang-up job of gathering cute and easily realizable DIY ideas that you may or may not have already come across on Pinterest to decorate your living space. The book has a cute style, the instructions are clear and comprehensible, and she even gives advice on how to tidy out and organize.

These projects are easy enough that these could be done by ages and up; some might need more supervision than others. While this appears to be aimed more toward girls,!!

The Most Popular DIY Project of All Time: Tiny Doors!
Included are steps to make a mock-up of the room, using paper for pieces of furniture and place them, rearranging them, to find the best arrangement for the space. And more. What every parent hopes will come out of this: their child to have a sense of what is theirs, to have pride in it and want to keep it looking nice and new. And every child, excuse me, almost teenager wants is a room that represents them, that says this is who I am, what I love.
Essentially: This is Me. To have that sense of ownership that helps to keep them organized; wanting things to look the way they designed them to look. View all 25 comments. I am always looking for ways to improve the spaces in my house, and Room Love has quite a few inexpensive little ideas that are fun DIY projects. Many of the ideas are geared towards tweens, however there are some great organizational tips that can be useful to anyone.

I have recently begun to organize my bookshelves and I was really inspired by the washi tape embellishment idea in Room Love. What is so great about washi tape is its versatility and the ability to remove it easily if needed. I never considered using it in my decorating before, and it is such a fun idea!
The layout of this DIY book is so pretty and has lots of pictures with step-by-step directions that can be followed with ease. It is one that will appeal to pre-teens that are wanting to jazz up their space a little bit without having to purchase expensive supplies. It is a definite gift for the tween DIYers on your list!

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review! I just love DIY, I love making my space even more pretty than it already is.
These days it is much less since I got a whole apartment, but back when I had just one room I loved making it even more beautiful and more fun to be in. There are some projects that I would love to do, and probably will be doing. Like the covering of a closet door, my closet is white, plus has some dents and bumps, so I would like to cover those. Or dres I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review! Or dressing up my cabinets with washi tape everyone seems to be hyped about that stuff.
Also the stencilling of my dressers or doors. Not all projects were to my liking, and some just seemed to be the same project only then used for something different. Like the nail polish, the calendar, the sunglasses projects. Plus I had a little snicker when I saw those fairy lights and that they formed a word. It reminded me of a scene or two in Stranger Things.
Most of the projects are fairly easy to do, and you can easily find the stuff needed for them. The photographs are clear and sharp, and the instructions are easy to follow and explain everything clearly. Apr 09, Grapeseed22 rated it it was amazing.

May 21, Samantha added it Shelves: non-fiction , received-for-review , Included with the crystal clear photographs for each project are a comprehensive list of materials needed and step by step guides to accomplish each project. This book is a great addition to the library of a budding crafty person and hobbiest, however, I do believe it should be aimed at older teens and the like.
I jumped at the chance to hopefully get a review copy. So, while she is a year or two too young for the targeted age group for Room Love which is 9 - 13 , I thought maybe I could rehash some ideas for her. The only one I could probably do with her is the Treasure Box one, which is pretty simple. Get a large shoe box or any type of box really , decorate it how you want, and ta-da, a treasure box for all her birthday cards, rocks, or whatever she'd like.
Also, the pretty charging station looks like a great gift idea to make for her mom or grandma or whoever. One thing I didn't like or really found fault with was the inclusion of a dream catcher "craft".

Dream catchers are cultural items that aren't necessarily easy or even okay to commercialize and "do-it-yourself". Overall, I liked Room Love. The layout is clean, simple, and yet offers enough colors and patterns to inspire the crafter within me. I also appreciate the "get parental approval first" labels on some projects don't want those budding crafters going off with the glue-gun quite yet.
Room Love would be a great addition to any crafter's and inspiring crafter's library, even more so if the dream catcher craft was removed from the book. Jun 15, j e w e l s rated it it was amazing. A great step-by-step guide aimed at teens and tweens who would like to personalize their bedroom. Yes, the book is meant for older kids, but it is so full of modern and gorgeous color schemes that people of all ages will be inspired to tackle their boring walls and windows.
It is a perfect book for younger somethings, living on a shoestring budget, yet still desiring a little panache in their space.
