    54 Ways To Decorate Your Home Like A Bonafide Adult

    This *may* be the easiest part of being a grown-up.

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. Bring in more light to any space, especially with something like this leather table lamp, to warm it up and make it feel way cozier.

    4. 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!

    5. You could also hang a macrame wall mirror to bring in a bohemian flair and double as a great touch-up spot.

    6. And while you're at it, lend your space an inviting, bohemian feel with a detailed macrame tapestry.

    7. Place an embossed faux-alligator decorative tray on your coffee table or ottoman to have a spot to hold all your little treasures.

    8. Try a luxe microfiber quilt set complete with a quilt and two pillow shams for everything you need to make your bed the most inviting place in town. ::wink:: ::wink::

    11. Let there be light...on your kitchen cabinets with a set of Alexa and Google Home voice-controlled LED Lights that are easily applied under and above your cabinets and that can shine in up to 16 million color options. MILLION.

    12. Freshen up the air with a set of the prettiest pink peony reed diffusers — they're made of a super porous sola material that will absorb the scent and colors of your favorite oil fragrances. It'll basically be like having perfect flowers that never die and always smell delightful.

    16. 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.

    17. 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.

    18. 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.

    20. Use large pieces of furniture to bring luxurious pops of color into your space.

    22. Don't invest your whole budget on carpet, 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!

    23. And bring the inside out with an outdoor area rug that'll make nights in your yard a little cozier.

    25. 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.

    26. 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.

    27. 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.

    28. 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.

    29. 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!!).

    30. 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.

    31. 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.

    33. 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).

    35. Or you could learn to DIY your hand-me-down/Ikea/garage sale finds like a Pinterest star.

    36. 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.

    37. 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.

    38. Invest in unique and unexpected materials — like concrete — to give your space an elevated (and expensive) look.

    39. 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.

    40. 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.

    41. You can also get rid of all the clutter with some splurge-worthy and very awesome statement pieces that double as interesting conversation starters.

    42. Use a chunky, handmade merino wool knit blanket to make all your guests think a giant made it just for you but also make your space super cozy.

    43. 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.

    44. 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.

    45. Bring fresh flowers into a room to add a pop of color and show the world you're together enough to own a vase.

    46. Oh and don't forget about your bathroom! Make sure your bathroom has hand towels, hand soap, a bath mat, and that it's always clean.

    47. You can also update your bathroom with a resin-coated fabric shower curtain designed with dangling tassels so you can make your bathroom look like a bohemian dream.

    48. Get gorgeous storage containers to organize the things you need on the regular but you shouldn't have laying around — like ones for cotton swabs, makeup wipes, extra toilet paper!

    49. And maybe get a little cheekier with a handmade wooden box for all your cotton swabs.

    50. Consider a five-step decorative ladder to store and display your throw blankets, bath towels, or scarves.

    51. Bring the outside in with an LED sunset lamp projector designed with a 180-degree rotation to help shine just enough color onto whatever wall you want.

    52. Add some delicate touches with a set of petite glass bud vases for that elegant flare.

    53. Install a set of invisible bookshelves so you can neatly store your entire literary collection without any bulky furniture — look ma, no hands!

    Now your house will feel like home — until, of course, you can finally move into Hogwarts.
