TikTok user Anthony, who operates the Immediato Interiors channel, shared his top three tips to spruce up your home.

“You need to stop buying all your furniture and decorations in one place,” advised the interior expert.

He explained, “By doing this you take the individuality out of your space, it won’t feel organized or personalized.”

Anthony also emphasized the importance of prioritizing your originality when it comes to artwork.

“You also have to buy mass-produced art. I know we’ve all seen some version of this cow print in Target, Ikea, HomeGoods,” he said.

Anthony added: “Again it comes down to individuality and a more polished look, anyone can have that in their home.”

“And finally, you need to stop compromising and rushing your home project,” the expert told his followers.

He explained: “Your house is not going to look [finished] overnight. Don’t just settle for furniture, because it’s readily available.”

“If this doesn’t work for you or you think it doesn’t fit your vision, wait for something better to come along,” the TikToker concluded.

Anthony’s followers took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the design tips.

“A few months ago I blamed myself for not having matching furniture. Now I’m adopting it because of TikToks like this!” a viewer wrote.

The TikToker advised its followers to avoid mass-produced artwork, such as the cow print

Another user said, “I have 100% of my stuff off the market or vintage. I have ‘new’ furniture in my whole apartment.”

“Things I rushed to buy and ended up hating for decades! Better wait for the right part,” a third person said.

Anthony told his followers to take their time when it comes to decorating and not compromise their vision
