White walls, generic rugs, this could could use a over haul. If you ever thought like this, but don;t want to spend a lot of money, you may want to try something as siimple as candles. 

A simple home accessory like candles can bring warmth and  light to any homespace offering not only a warmth and obviously a glow but the light candels offer can chage the mood and character of any living space, from the harsh high tempteratie of a flurescent to a natural flicker of a candle can make a difference in relaxation.

In addition to candels a difuser, which can add character and atmosphere to a room, by gently adding a scent to a room over time, can accentuate a studio apartment or large liing space. 

A suggestion can be placing the diffuser on a flat surface with a clean white or designed plate, with a candle and maybe a plat can add as an inexpensive accessory to any room. Onviously use candles safely.
