Know your place & vibes

Focus on channeling the themes like the tropical vibe of a coastal home through fun motifs. Textured wall or wallpaper, antique items. Casual materials or beach theme or vintage house that depends on individual choice. Yet, maintain a look of sophistication through fresh upholstery, beautiful artwork, color schemes, and thoughtful layout.

Let’s get started πŸ‘‰



* Add Something Unexpected πŸͺ‘”Comfy seating”

*To make it more cheerful.

To give you all an idea. Let me tell you, I have a neutral color on the wall. I have a huge window with light blue textured fabric curtains on it. Further, used 3 mattresses to create a lower seating area. To cover the mattress up I shopped online from amazon. A cotton single bedsheet, in color Turquoise blue. I liked the color, I also liked the quality as I used it. I will recommend all to buy.

*Have fun with some cushions, pillows & throw.

I ordered some Cushion (fillers) set of Leo fab Presents Cushion, Set of 5 of Size (16×16). The cushion is good in quality and perfect in size. To add pops of color I got some Multicolor Digital design cushion covers set pack of 5 same sizes of fillers (16×16). Now the plain sheet with jute printed decorative sofa cushion cover gives an amazing look.


We all can look around our house what can be re-used or we can create some best out of waste. Can bring life to that by doing DIY. DIY can turn waste items into a nice, beautiful piece of decor. After doing some DIY activity that gives you a sense of happiness and satisfaction I know it very well. I think you will love the process, after results will bring a smile on your face, which will be worth and don’t forget guest compliments to ” wondering you did this really”

What I did is I had an old small plastic seating stool at home & I was above to throw it. I spray-painted that stool in the color blue. As my color theme was going to curtains blue and bedsheets which I used turquoise blue. I placed one corner of the lower seating area & placed a bunch of artificial flowers. White and baby pink which was available in my house hasn’t used yet the right time to use. In that same corner, I placed a huge teddy bear a soft toy I call “Happy” this was gifted by my hubby on my birthday a few years back. Again baby pink in color complements the bunch of the flower in the same shade. Now with this completes the look of the lower seating area which gives a cozy and comfortable vibe.

*Bring fun to the floor.

When you have a neutral wall & floor. Choose one statement items that bring a surge of colorful energy. It can be anything like art on the wall or wallpaper. I decided to bring a rug for the floor.
