1.Add some peel-and-stick wallpaper to freshen up your space and give it some dimension and texture — it's also easily removable for when you're ready to change things up or move out.
2.Also, if you're a renter, or just not ready to invest in a whole new backsplash, try a temporary peel-and-stick tile backsplash to upgrade your kitchen without breaking the bank.
3.Keep your memories alive and give your home some personalization with a set of multiple frames you can use to create your very own gallery wall.
4.Give any room in your home a glamorous touch with room-darkening velvet curtains that'll help in your quest to sleep in a little later.
5.You don't need to break the bank to get a beautiful area rug, this medallion area rug comes in a variety of colors and sizes to fit your decor style, plus its refined loom makes it great for anyone with pets!
7.Add a bold and beautiful houseplant to help bring any room to life — just make sure you follow the provided tips to keep it alive.
8.Speaking of keeping things alive, nothing says "I'm an adult" more than keeping a houseplant alive, which this handy guide might help you accomplish.
9.Create your own art and have something unique to cover your walls in with blank wooden skateboard — okay, hear me out. Skateboard art is all the rage, bright beautifully decorated boards which, with a small piece of fishing wire wrapped through the holes, hang perfectly on your wall but they're also SUPER expensive (like hundreds of dollars, see example below). So, what if you bought a board and painted/decorated it yourself? You could create one really intricate board that hangs perfectly on a pillar or small corner or an epic collage with a few!
10.Learn how to layer all your accessories to construct a visually appealing shelf, coffee table, or sofa.
11.While we're on the topic, invest some time in keeping your bookshelves and coffee tables well-organized and artfully curated.
12.One way to do that is by filling your shelves with perfectly coordinated books sets that'll help make your shelves look like they belong in the pages of an interior design magazine.
13.But don't think your books need to live on bookshelves. Placing a uniquely curated set of books on an entry table or desk can be the perfect piece of decor. You can lay them down or try a unique and fun set of cactus bookends to securely keep your books in place while giving a little personality.
14.Get an actual sofa — not a futon, not a curbside find, but a real, adult-looking sofa to complete your living room.
15.If you're not ready to throw down serious cash on a new sofa, splurge on some luxurious throw blankets (like the one pictured here).
16.Or throw a set of gorgeously lush velvet pillow covers on your favorite pillows to give some new life to your old but still reliable sofa.
17.Make your tiny space seem a little bigger with perfectly placed mirrors, which will also help in your quest to capture the perfect OOTD pic for Insta.
18.You could also hang a macrame wall mirror to bring in a bohemian flair and double as a great touch-up spot.
19.Let there be light! Find a sophisticated floor lamp that'll not only add a gorgeous piece of decor to a room, but also just make your home feel really cozy.
20.It may seem obvious, but make sure you have clean sheets and pillows — this one is really important. When I first met my now-husband in college, he would use T-shirts as his pillowcases and I don't think they were always clean T-shirts. I still make fun of him for that 'til this very day. Especially when he gets on my case for having too many throw pillows (which is impossible!!).
21.And on that note, invest in a comfy (and not previously owned) mattress so you can get a good night's sleep and be a functioning human in the morning.
22.Like I was saying, make your bed as plush as the ones you dream of sleeping in when you're shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond with this handy guide about how to lay out all your pillows.
23.Also, buy an actual bed frame! Like, with a headboard and maybe a platform. (I know, I know, I'm asking a lot here.)
24.Update your light fixtures — it's an easy way to upgrade your home without breaking the bank (while still making it look like you did).
25.If you're looking to make a bit of an investment, go for high-quality materials like brass, marble, and heavy fabrics for your decor and accent furniture.
26.Or you could learn to DIY your hand-me-down/Ikea/garage sale finds like a Pinterest star.
27.One way is to give your old and tattered hand-me-down furniture a fun and unique coat of chalked paint — it'll provide all your pieces a soft matte, cozy look.
28.You can also upgrade your old counters or tabletops with vinyl wrap film — a temporary solution that'll last a long time and won't cost a small fortune.
29.Invest in unique and unexpected materials — like concrete — to give your space an elevated (and expensive) look.
30.Don't underestimate the power of a beautiful statement chair — which is not only practical, but can also provide a stunning way to make your space pop.
31.And if we are going ahead and buying pieces of decor and furniture — get some that double as storage so you can hide all the little things you don't need access to all the time.
32.You can also get rid of all the clutter with some splurge-worthy and very awesome statement pieces that double as interesting conversation starters.
33.Keep your closets organized in order to make the most out of your storage space, because it's not cute to have your clothes piled on a chair anymore.
34.Really, really clean your home — including sanitizing and organizing the things that need to be, rather than just throwing all your stuff in the closet.
35.Bring fresh flowers into a room to add a pop of color and show the world you're together enough to own a vase.
36.Or if you're tired of spending countless dollars on flowers that just die on you, try a bundle of faux jasmine flowers that'll add a delicate statement to any room — without the need to replace them every week.
