Style is a matter of putting together a number of touches and elements that make a visually appealing statement without compromising on functionality or comfort. This can be achieved for your home one small touch at a time. From colorful furnishing to indoor plants, aromatic candles, beautiful crockery and even vibrant towels, there is a whole host of aesthetic inputs which can turn a house into a home. 

Do not underestimate the power of small things when it comes to making a big style splash. Have a look at this list to get inspired! We are certain that you will adopt some of these, we love idea number 3!

1. Pair vibrant cushions with a neutral sofa.

Colorful cushions will help you in dressing up a neutral living room and giving it some much needed personality. Place lamps nearby for a luminescent effect as shown in this one designed by the architects at Reis London Ltd.!

Say it with flowers! Adding a floral delight or two makes for a fresh and airy style statement like none other—so add such touches liberally! Having fresh flowers around the home brings nature indoors, and keeps the energy positive!

3. Fresh indoor green.

Add greenery in small doses with such a terrarium which is easy to create and maintain. Let this sit in a corner for a green effect. Indoor plants also cleanse the air around the home.
