As much as we would love to spend majority of our days improving our home, real life will always get in the way—after all, work and responsibilities are inevitable. To make room in our busy schedules, what we need are decor ideas that call for little time and a big imagination. Check out these fresh tips that will instantly amp up the style of your space:

Simply trading in your old drapes for a new set can brighten up your space! Consider going for sheer ones to let more sunshine into your home.
