While basic must-haves and simple accessories are enough to turn a condo unit into a home, keep in mind that you can always add a little flair to your décor. Luxurious seating pieces, fluffy pillows, and pretty baskets can improve the overall look of your space while making it extra comfortable. Check out the following must-haves the next time you step out of your space to shop:

Settle on a color palette showcasing warm tones and neutrals. Dulux Paint has a wide array of options you can choose from like Hazelnut Truffle, Potters Clay 1, Vintage Smoke, Crispy Crumble, and Blue View. Pick your accessories according to these colors or use them on your walls to set the tone of your space.


1. Anchor the space with an area rug that’s simple yet adds a sophisticated touch. Muted greens and neutrals are your best bets.

2. Use a luxe bowl as catchall in the foyer. Place your keys, loose change, and other small knickknacks here so you can easily grab what you need before you leave.

3. Instead of ordinary baskets, choose pretty picks that you can use as planters, hampers, or simply as storage for magazines and extra pillows. These can even serve as extra accents.

4. Touches of gray can instantly give your home an elegant yet cozy upgrade. Pick a gray sofa to serve as focal point in the living area.
