Pick your accents wisely.


This blogger knows the power of throw pillows and picks them out based on the vibe she's trying to create. For instance, these accessories are a vibrant way to welcome summer.

Keep DIYs simple.


When this Paris native moved back to her hometown to raise her baby, she updated her existing coffee table with glue and imitation leather, and that's it. Proving style doesn't have to be complicated.

Know where to invest.


Since this homeowner had a strict budget when renovating her Paris apartment, she had to pick and choose where she invested. She splurged on marble countertops, which she says makes her kitchen feel more modern and fresh.

Show off items you love.


Even if that means shoes. If you're proud of your heels, sweaters or jewelry, why not turn it into art that you can stare at all day long? We're especially in love with this ladder solution by IKEA.

Take your time.


The secret behind this bohemian home in Hossegor, France? The homeowner didn't rush buying decor. Instead, she collected items bit by bit. That way, her house is filled only with items she cherishes.

Pick a statement color.


If you want to make a small space feel bigger, unite everything with a simple color scheme that features a splash of brightness. Here, yellow pops against the rest of the white and gray decor.

Add color with rugs.


This homeowner layers colorful rugs on top of wood floors to add vibrancy and dimension to the space. The key to not letting this get out of hand is keeping the walls and furniture neutral.

Use color to create a vibe.


Even though this homeowner's home is tiny, she makes the most of it with strategic paint. In her alcove of a bedroom, she used plum to create a cozy nook and hung a curtain around the side for privacy.

Make a statement.


Mirrors help make a room feel bigger because reflect light. And when you pair them with a glitzy gold frame, you have a focal point that has a touch of glamor.

Lean art against the wall.


Some homeowners rest their pictures against the wall because they can't decide where to hang it. Why not make it a permanent solution? Not hanging paintings and framed pictures keeps the room from feeling too formal.
