Plants – The lush vibrancy of plants add a breath of fresh air into the room. They are also effective air filters that clear up indoor pollutants. Aside from that, plants make great décor items and add elegance to your living room.

Personal items – To provide an identity to your living room as well as make it feel homely, you should include a few personal items into the décor. These could be in the shape of family photos, special mementos or even some prized collections.
