Trending on Remodelista: How to Add Character to Your Home

February 21, 2020

The key to a home that’s well-designed but not overly decorated? Prioritizing personality over perfection. Here, some fine examples from Remodelista this week:

1. Prop up an oversized mirror in the kitchen.

2. Use a throwbed on the sofa.

Take a page from the French and cover the seat of your sofa with a characterful throwbed. See 7 Favorites: Soft, Stylish Throwbeds (Starting at \$50).

4. Decorate the commode.
