5.Make friends with indoor plants. Fact: they bring on calming vibes (and just look plain awesome).
6.Exposed lightbulbs look great but can be a little bright and rough on the eyes. Invest in a beautiful shade – think equal parts good-looking, practical for reading, and soft for winding down after a long day.

10.Add cushy, inviting textures like velvet or wooly knits via cushions and throws
