Season's living room decor on budget

Schools are now closed and holiday plans are underway. At home, we are all preparing our spaces to catch the holiday mood.

Christmas is around the corner and before the guests start streaming in, one key area that needs to be in check is the living room.

Living room decor can be expensive and getting that dream living room decor can actually cost a lot.

Here are a few ideas on how you can actually do some living room decor yourself and save some money.


Flowers bring life into the living room, but buying ready flowers and vessels can be expensive.

Instead, you can buy flowers cheaply from the market and mix them to your taste.

Google how you can put together flower decor for the living room and add that essential design flair yourself.

You can also do a simple basket art and, instead of doing paintings on the wall, opt for wall hangings that help create a hue and rhythm for the living room.


You don't have to buy new pillowcases every holiday season. You can purchase different textile materials and make the pillows yourself from home. You can also buy the material, think through the design and use your tailor to work the sewing for you. This will cost much less than buying dozens of pillowcases from the shop.

And it is even better when you use different shades to create magic in your living room. Pillows also go well with indoor plants, making the living room look spacious and lively.

Complete the magic with light fittings with an interchangeable mix; including overhead, accent and task lights.
