1. Posters

First, we should explore posters; they're all the rage now for giving your space that extra flair. They add style and can even fix some imperfections, like hiding wonky walls or making the room feel more spacious. Check your local thrift stores for large frames, or, just flip through some old magazines, find pictures you like, throw them in frames, and voila! If you have a larger frame, consider a collage anchored with washi tape onto inexpensive poster board from the dollar store.

2. A Hammock

Let's get trendy with just one cool detail: a hammock! It can transform any living room, and if you're on a budget, think about a hammock chair. And why leave your walls around the door or window sills bare? You can spice them up with mirrors, tiles, or natural stones.

3. Eco-Style

Now, let's talk about eco-style. Such designs are always on point, and you don't have to spend a fortune on them. Think wooden cubes instead of pricey coffee tables, natural linoleum instead of synthetic rugs, mix and match dressers and end tables, and cool woven baskets for storage. Plus, you can get your hands dirty and make your own décor like privacy panels, lampshades, stacked crates for bookshelves and storage systems, and more.

4. Walls

If your walls are feeling a bit bare, think about creating a cool wall panel. You don't need to break the bank. Get creative with ideas like floral bas-relief, a funky pattern with colored threads, a vintage rub, collages, dried flowers, shells, or bottle corks. The possibilities are endless!

5. Upcycle

Who said old things couldn't have a second life? Upcycling is the way to go! Give a fresh look to your old furniture with a splash of paint, peel and stick wallpaper, a change of hardware, or some stencils. Revive worn-out baskets with a touch of textile and twine. It's stylish, budget-friendly, and adds a personal touch to your space.

6. Souvenirs

What about all those souvenirs and trinkets scattered around? Don't let them create chaos on your shelves. Pick your favorites, toss the rest into the garage without a second thought, and give the chosen ones a special spot — maybe on a simple ledge shelf that you can easily make yourself. You can even use seashells from a recent vacation to create a beautiful lazy Susan focal point like this simple seashell centerpiece.

7. Homemade

This trendy interior design move not only solves your 'too much fabric' problem but also adds a unique touch. Use those textile pieces to whip up some awesome chair cushions, throw pillows, or a stylish headboard for your bed.
