If you are struggling to arrange things in your house, grab a magazine to get some ideas of how to do it.  Hide the clutter in bowls or in baskets. Use shelves to display antique items.

Luxury houses have chandeliers, moonlights, wall sconces and side lamps. Who says you can’t have these in your home? Proper lighting in your house can transform the whole look and feel of your house. Start by changing your lighting. Is it too dull? Do you have modern lights? Go for pendant lights which are affordable and bring out a luxury effect in a home.

Next, add side lamps on your tables, preferably ones that have a gold lining. They will instantaneously add glamour to a room. If you want even more lighting, think of putting long windows that run from the floor to the ceiling.
