Bring in a Photo Wall 

Converting a bare wall into a personal masterpiece with unframed memories from a bygone holiday or abstract images can help you set up a collage on the wall to complement the rest of your living room decor. Framing pictures is pocket-friendly and lends a personalized expression to the wall. Select a style that reflects your taste.

“In these times where homes look ‘fancy’ and replicas of one another, we wanted to create a space that is personal and warm. We spent an entire afternoon going through pictures/ objects spanning four generations. Then we carefully choose the right size of rose gold brass frames to tightly snug each of the cherished moments,” says Chhabra.

Price alert: Framing a photograph can cost as less as Rs. 150 per piece.

Funk Up the Lighting 

Lighting can make your living room seem luxurious and elegant, or it can make it look dull. One may presume that lighting fixtures cost a lot, but there’s a world of purse-friendly options out there. To provide a designer vibe, you can pep up your interiors with a smattering of bright details, such as the table, lamp and ceiling light.

For this apartment, the designers opted for a blend of chandeliers and floor lamps along with plenty of natural light. A floor lamp is intentionally placed next to oval-shaped wall mirrors to create an interesting interplay of light and reflection. The ceiling is ornate with an industrial-inspired chandelier and Edison bulb.
