1.Treat the mass market with caution

The mass market is convenient because of its predictable quality, reasonable prices, and expected assortment. However, if you want a one-of-a-kind interior, not all products from hypermarkets for the home will work for you.

IKEA and other similar stores should not be used to purchase expressive furniture and decor with a recognizable, catchy design. However, simple, concise background furnishings are possible.

2.Avoid using sets and kits.

Try not to buy ready-made sets and sets of furniture, towels, vases, caskets, and figurines: they scream strain and replication from a mile away. Make your own stylish expositions by combining furniture and decor.

3.Include vintage decoration

Retro interior design elements are now popular, and they help to create a special, genuine, and one-of-a-kind atmosphere.

4. Produce

Make your own furniture, decor, and accessories: such items are, by definition, one-of-a-kind. They also store the warmth of your hands.

5. Make modifications

Are you not prepared for pure creativity? Refine the mass market by changing the handles, removing shelves, tightening the wheels, adding lighting, painting (in whole or in part), and aging. Even the replicated object will become something unique as a result of such manipulations.

6. Combine styles

Avoid the temptation to copy popular stylistic and color schemes. Mix styles, or at the very least incorporate small elements of other styles into the main one.

7. Value manual labor

Handmade items guarantee that no one else will have a similar one. There are numerous Russian and international websites where master craftsmen sell their wares: take a closer look at them to make your interior even more unique.

8. Make your hobbies visible in your surroundings.

Personalization of the interior is a sure way to set it apart from the crowd. Try to incorporate objects that reflect your hobbies into the environment: display mini-collections, awards and diplomas, a selection of music records, books, magazines, and so on.

9. Put items to other uses

You add zest to the space by using objects that are not intended for their intended purpose. A kettle in place of planters, suitcases in place of storage boxes, a bench in place of a banquette, wall shelves in place of bedside tables — if a functional solution appears unexpected and non-obvious, it only plays into the hands of your interior designer.

10. Bring home souvenirs from your travels

Bring decorative trinkets, textiles, and accessories from your foreign travels to make the situation more interesting and unique. It will also serve as a visual reminder of the vacation, eliciting pleasant memories.

11. Consult with kids

In some cases, the youngest members of the family understand much better than adults. At the very least, their perspective on interior design is not clouded by conventions and is not constrained by frames.

12. Don't overlook the holiday decorations.

Decorate for the season and holidays: this is a quick and low-cost way to diversify the interior, please the household, and transform even a neutral environment.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
