WHY THIS WORKS
- Plants. Even if you don't have a green thumb, adding low maintenance plants to a room really adds life to a room, literally. Go to a nursery and tell them what the light is in your space and they can help you. There are many low maintenance house plants available.
- Furniture placement. Is your furniture pushed up against the wall? Bring them into the room to create coziness and conversation areas.
- Texture. Do you have any natural elements in your room? Baskets are a great way to add texture and they can do double duty as storage.
This room is a prime example of looking at a room and taking inspiration from it, even if it's not your own personal style. Personally, I wouldn't put a stuffed goose on my mantel, BUT... I could copy that same arrangement with a mirror plant and another large focal point.
