Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Recover just the seat if it can be removed, or add a fun pattern to the back of a chair. I love adding a pattern to only a part of a chair. The pattern adds a cool vibe without being overwhelming.
Work with three different scaled fabrics.Find one large pattern, one medium, and one small patterned fabric. If you were to use the same sized patterns throughout your bedding set, it would look way too busy. Consider scale and size of your textile designs and vary them to create visual interest. In this picture, the large zebra print on the euro shams contrast well with the circle patterns on the duvet cover.

There is a lot going on, but it doesn't feel overwhelming because the palette is quiet and calm, and the furnishings are a good mix of interesting, flashy and low-key.
It makes the most sense to add built-ins when you own a place, but you can still do it as a renter on a budget with simple materials and a little elbow grease. Carving out a little work niche between the closet and window was a great use of space. Painting the shelves the same color as the wall, but having the desk top match the wicker on the closet ties the whole room together.
Rather than buying several storage pieces, put your money into a well-designed built-in for the best use of storage space. Custom closet storage is also better than cramming several dressers in a room.

A garden. An interior space can feel like a sunny backyard with the addition of lavishly healthy hanging plants. Shabby chic furnishings bring a lounge-in-the-sun attitude indoors.
