If you don't like the space you're living in, and want to vamp it up a little, here are (insert number here) easy ways to change up your room and make it a space you're happy to spend time in.

With the global pandemic, a lot of people are feeling more lonely than usual. Not seeing friends or family coupled with never leaving your room can make you feel awful. However, a couple of pictures of family or friends on your wall cuckold subtly help you out. Not only will it remind you that you're not alone, but it'll be a cute decoration that will add a lot to your room or living space.

Flowers (fake or real)

Flowers are a simple elegant way to make the space you're living in more pleasant to look at and exist in. Real or fake flowers would do the trick. With real flowers, you can switch them up every couple of days after they die, or with fake ones, you can have a couple around your room you won't have to worry about. Either way, flowers are an easy way to add a little color and life to your living space.

If you're into music, or just like the aesthetic of records, put a couple of the album covers on your wall! Or, if you don't have your own records, but still love the look of them, go to a thrift store and pick up a couple! They're super cheap and a super easy way to add a personal touch to your room or living space.

Any form of greenery, whether it be vines, house plants or fake plants are sure to add a bit of life to your living space. You can get really cheap hanging vines for your ceiling or wall from amazon, as well as cute fake plants too! But if you're confident in your abilities to keep a real one alive, go for a real houseplant!

If you're looking for something a little more personal than the rest of these, try and find a poster you like! Whether that be of a band, movie, or just a pretty poster, you're sure to find one that will fit with your style and make your living space more you. If you want to spice it up even a little bit more, instead of a poster, try a tapestry!
