The living room is considered for many people the sanctuary of the house, this place is where we spend most of the time since it is usually close to the other relevant spaces of the house such as the kitchen. The living room is also where we tend to focus the most on interior renovation or decoration due to all the uses and elements that it requires, however, it is not necessary to break the bank to create a beautiful, quiet and optimal space. The trick to creating a design with these characteristics when you have a small budget is to get cheaper alternatives such as purchasing replicas of modern sofas, flea market pieces, decorative accessories, among other things. Today we have compiled great ideas to decorate your home in an economical and optimal way. Swipe down and start saving your favorite ideas!

Consider the replica market

The replica market is probably a bit undervalued since when we read the word replica we might believe that it isn’t made of good quality or the pieces are going to deteriorate quickly and this is not the case! Within the category of replicas there are high-end products that offer materials similar to the original but with the same structural design.

So in case you are looking for a modern sofa you can search through high-end replicas websites like Manhattan Home Design. An example of high-quality modern piece is our Togo sofa, which perfectly follows the original design created by the renowned Michel Ducaroy. This modern sofa comes in two presentations like the original; the fabric and leather.

Add artwork

Art is one of the most authentic ways to beautify a living room or any space. Through art it is possible to add focal points and also implement a bit of your character reflecting it in the types of styles you choose. The good thing about artwork is that you don’t have to necessarily buy them, you can use what you have available! For example, if you have a family member or you enjoy painting, you can add your framed work.

Find treasures in the flea market

Even professional interior designers suggest opting for the flea market, because you may be surprised with the number of pieces and variety it has. For example, if you are looking for an heirloom, a vintage mirror or even pieces of art, this is a very good option.

According to Jaime Rummerfield, co-founder of Woodson & Rummerfield's House of Design in Los Angeles, she frequently combines flea-market items with high-quality furniture to decorate the homes of her celebrity clients.

"The beauty of flea markets," she says, "is you never know what you will find. There's nothing like being outdoors or in a place off the beaten path rummaging through old treasures."

Add an organic touch

Organic touches always bring some peace to the home, as well as looking visually beautiful. These can be added to your modern sofa, on a shelf, next to a TV, etc.
