2. Showcase a Collection

The fireplace can be a superb display area for any type of collection. When the fireplace is not in use during summer, you can arrange a collection of colored ceramic vases of different shapes, heights and sizes to become the centerpiece of your home decor.

3. Use Rope

Take a piece of rope and wrap it around a flower vase. Use glue to hold the rope in place and paint over it to improve its aesthetic appeal. You can do the same thing to lamp shades to ensure every object in the living room has an aesthetic value.
