Everybody has probably all been tempted to rent a large dumpster and chuck all their home decor out the window, especially after scrolling through social media. But hold up, I’m sure you’ve got a good base going! You just need a few key pieces to make your home a bit more Instagrammable. We’ll help guide you to where you can find them locally, too!
One easy way to incorporate wicker into your living room decor is by swapping out those hideous, plastic mini trash cans with a more natural-looking. It’s a subtle upgrade but nevertheless important because now, your guests’ eyes won’t be drawn to the one thing you don’t want them to see: your garbage.

2. Large wall art:
Ditch the gallery wall and find three of your favorite large wall pieces to eliminate busyness. Be sure to arrange them in a triangle shape to naturally draw your eyes upwards, making your ceiling appear higher.

3. Oversized plants:
Baby succulents are always welcomed, but if you want your greenery to be a part of your living room landscape, it’s gotta exceed two inches in height. I recommend Monstera Deliciosa (Split Leaf Philodendron) for their trendiness, low mainten-ance, and their ability to set a tropical vibe wherever they live!

5. Woven baskets:
Baskets are the perfect way to disguise an ugly plant pot, collect toys, or show off your cute blankets while also adding a point of interest to ground-level. These are a simple way to add maturity and intention to your place.
