Mix up your textiles
Whether you own a sofa, throw pillows, or drapes, if they are all made of the same fabric then they will likely make your home feel flat and one-dimensional.

You can think about summer or autumnal colors that carry over.
Make the most of your curtains

However, you don’t need to have the largest room or house to do the same. You can fool the eyes by hanging your drapes and curtains as high as possible against the window frame and up to the ceiling. It automatically draws the eye up and gives the impression that the space is larger than it is. You can even use sheer curtains to soften any light that comes in and make the room feel warm and cozy.
Artwork is something that many people accumulate over the years but don’t know what to do with it. You can try and hang up the pieces that you like and try and change the ones that don’t fit your style by using craft supplies.

You will find that adding a rug on top of carpeting will help define different areas in the room and can add that sense of sophistication.
