Home decor items are not just a way to beautify your abode. They also help to assess your age. Before you touch 30, it will be wise to keep a couch, candles that you burn and much more in your house.

Here are a few items that should be placed in your nest by the time you are 30, reports huffingtonpost.com:

* A real couch: A couch is the hub of your social life, where friends gather to talk and hangout. It’s where you spend most of your alone time when you are awake. Buying a real couch is an investment and one that shouldn’t be rushed into lightly. Couches should be stain-resistant, and must fit the space. Couches shouldn’t dominate but need to reflect your personality.

* Candles that you actually burn: Many people like to keep candles for years to decorate house. And even when they got covered with dust you didn’t burn them. It’s time to burn them. The thing about candles is you can replace them with other candles and they are cheap too.

* Fresh flowers: They not only make your house beautiful, but if you buy flowers your friends will assume someone brought them to you.

* Matching towels: The thing about towels is that we only tend to replace them when we move. A new colour scheme requires a couple of new towels. So, by the time you are 30, chances are you have two tan towels, two brown towels, two towels in four shades of green — none of them match and all of them have some life left in them. It’s best to get rid of them. (Bollywood Country)

Do you want your home decor to resonate with the chic interiors of a hotel? Well, it is possible to create that vibe in your home with minimal effort. Rajiv Rajgopal, Managing Director at AkzoNobel India, and Parul Mittal, Director, Greenlam Industries Ltd, share how one can combine hotel chic with the real house warmth.

* One of the quickest ways to give home a hotel inspired make-over is opting for accent walls. Hotels use accent walls to create a focal point by use of a colour that stands out.

* To bring in the whimsical vibe of hotel décor, choose a palette which is elegant but relaxed, with whimsical and playful touches. For example, a gently muted mix of romantic powder pinks (super candy) and blues create (satin blue) calm, with spiced honey bringing depth and sophistication to the look. Plain, pale wood, simple hand-made vessels and pretty fabrics add to the contemplative, centred feel of this home.

* Real wood flooring is one element that is timeless and is always incorporated in hotel rooms. Premium engineered wood floors are perfect to add an elegant touch that gives your home an ultra-modern vibe.

* Bring in a vivid combination through a stunning white couch with a combination of emerald green and black and white chevron patterned cushions. Add side tables in light tanned laminates to balance the look of the room.

* Layering textures is another element that is excessively used in hotels. Textures have a tactile element to them and never fail to create an authentic and rich look to your interiors. Bring in a variety of layers through throw blankets, cushions and faux rugs along with textured laminates which look breath-taking without being heavy on your pockets. (IANS)
