With this, you can also change or add carpet to your living room which will only enhance the look.
Use those extra utensils:
Another twist to your usual decor can be brought with utensils that are kept at home but are not being used. If you have those big copper or brass urns (handa), put them in a corner of your living area. They look classy and give a bit of a vintage feel. Ceramic urns also come handy for the decor.
