Decorative pillows can introduce colors, shapes and patterns

A great way to tie a room together, look carefully for decorative pillows that coordinate with your furniture, interior design style and the ambiance you want to create in the room.

Decorative pillows can add a touch of your accent colors and a surprise pattern or shape. You can even change up your pillows by season--add fun flowered and striped pillows in the spring, and more earthy, textured pillows in the fall.

Showcase your creativity with decorative pillows!


Candles provide ambiance

Decorating your living room can be lots of fun when adding candles, and they are definitely on our list of cheap decorating ideas!

When I moved into my loft recently, I wanted a fresh look to my home decor. I purchased 7 red circular candles in varying heights and widths to place on my mantel. I made sure they were all the same color red--it was the variety of sizes alone that made for interesting visual appeal.

The candles truly added warmth to the living room (and a bit of romance), and they look beautiful when lit in the evening.


Cool picture frames of treasured photos add life

When decorating on a budget, photos are great to use as a decorating element. Photos help showcase who we are, including what we like to do and who we like to spend time with!

Be sure to pick out picture frames that coordinate well with your interior design elements and/or accent colors. I found 9 picture frames in varying sizes that all have a brushed aluminum look, but have different engravings of geomentric shapes--some circular, some square and some with rectangles.

Plus, if you watch the sales at your favorites stores, you can always find picture frames on sale. In fact, don't buy them if they are not on sale!

Spend time searching for these important home decor items. They make a big impact on the overall design of the room and when they coordinate well, they are the icing on the cake!

We hope you've found a few cheap decorating ideas you can use in your own home. Decorating on a budget can truly be fun!
