Colors to choose:
Paint / color are the most decorative tool that adds most of the essence of beauty to your home. For a light and pleasant look choose lighter shades. For striking look, choose dark colors.

Curtains and Fabrics:
While choosing fabrics for curtains, floor covering, pillows, and sofa sheets or like spread sheets go for the patterns like stripes, floral print, check which are most popular which add elegance to your home.
Generally single pair of pillows are used for sofas, but go for two pair or multiple pair of pillows, with one pair contrast with other pair. Choose the pillows contrast in pattern color, this looks rocking especially for your sofa in living room.
Plants add a different beauty that the others can’t add. They add a natural beauty. A potted plant at some corner of house or at the entrance of the house adds natural beauty, nothing can add as much as beauty more than this to your home
