Light up the Space

Natural lighting is certainly ideal for photography. But sometimes natural lighting just isn’t an option. If your home has minimal natural lighting, don’t fret! Instead, see this as an opportunity to add some flair to your space. Pick a fun lighting fixture to make a bold statement. Your space would be such that you could even post it on Instagram and give your followers exceptional decorating ideas.

House Plants

Liven up your space by adding some house plants. Not only do that add an additional texture, but they also brighten the mood, especially if you live in a city. Please note, if you have pets or children be sure to double check if your plants are non toxic if ingested.

Make it Cozy

Make your space look extra inviting by adding a knit blanket and lighting a candle. Perhaps leave out a steaming mug of coffee on the coffee table and coax your cat to lay down on the couch to make your space appear even more cozy when photographed.

Less is More

Take a less is more approach. Minimalism is sweeping the nation and for good reason. Keeping clutter out also does wonders for your mental health.

Shelving not only allows you to utilize your space more efficiently, but it also provides excellent styling opportunities. Swap out focal points and change things up based on the season or to suit your mood.

Keep it Lived in

Last but certainly not least, it’s important to remember this is the space you live in. Keep it functional, keep it personal. Instagram photos where the space appears lived in (i.e. coffee cup on the table, book open on the couch) look so much more personal and attainable.
