If you think your windows are only good for the view, you're seriously mistaken. Along with drapes, shades, and other window treatments, your windows—particularly the sills—are the perfect place to style a handful of books, candles, and houseplants, just like we saw on Coco Lapine Design.

Believe it or not, your books and bookshelves are ripe with design opportunity. Whether you organize your books by spine color or simply turn them around for a streamlined display (like we saw on Made by Katy), a well-styled bookshelf can transform your collections into an interior work of art in a matter of minutes.

3. Side table surfaces.
A good side table will take your living room setup to the next level, but a well-styled side table surface is a game-changer. Do yourself a solid and stage your nearest side table with an interesting table lamp, art object, or coffee table book to create a stylish scene that speaks to your unique style, just like we saw on The Every Girl.

5. Wall art.
Why stop at a single piece of wall art when you can have a whole gallery wall? Instead of sprinkling a couple of pieces of art throughout your home, consider forging a salon-style display in your living room with an eclectic mix of photos, paintings, and other images to make a bolder statement, like we saw on Style Me Pretty.
