5. Plants

Foliage not only adds beauty, but it can help improve your home’s air quality.

Have a brown thumb?

You can still enjoy the benefit of greenery without worrying that you’ll kill a living thing.

You can find many different styles of faux greenery, either on sale at one of the craft stores or the dollar store.

Most thrift stores carry fake greenery. If you don’t like the looks of the container your plants are in you can redo them with spray paint, stickers or contact paper to create the look you want.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match different plants until you get the look you want.

Add ribbons, flowers, glass beads, or whatever elements you might be able to find that will help to create a unique potted plant.

6. Shop the sales

Set up an alert so the next time your favorite store has something on sale that you’ve been dying to buy you’ll know.

7. Install wall sconces
