Having a home decor style or theme that you really enjoy is key to relaxing and loving your home environment. This is all down to personal preference, so doing what you truly love rather than just going for what’s ‘in style’ at the time is important. However, here are some fun ideas to try if you want some inspiration to get started!
Creating Your Very Own Feature Wall
Having a feature wall in the home is a must if you want to add some character and personality. The good news is, you don’t need a professional painter/decorator to do this for you. There are so many ways you can do it all on your own. You could simply use a bold color that stands out against everything else, or a roll of nice patterned paper. However, you can be as creative as you like. Some people choose to paint their own mural or put up some artwork.
The key to creating a feature wall is to make sure you choose the right wall. It should be a plain wall, with nothing distracting on it, such as a window or door. It should also draw the eye nicely when a person enters the room. Having one or two of these in the home can be a great way to make it your own.
Making Your Front Door More Attractive
What good is making the inside of your home look great, if you’re not going to make the outside look great too? Your curb appeal matters, and gives off the first impression of your home! If you’ve recently moved in, make sure you hire a locksmith before you do anything. Then you can get to work painting your door to make it look more welcoming and attractive. How about a bright red door, or something in royal blue? Make it stand out! Don’t forget a nice new welcome mat either.
Using Accessories The Right Way
You need to make sure you’re using accessories the right way in your home decor. You don’t want your home to look visually cluttered up, so don’t use too many little figurines and things. Choose wisely. You can even choose something larger, to replace many small accessories. This will give a cleaner look while still adding to the overall feel of a room. There are certain accessories you can layer, however, such as your pillows and throws. This way, you can make sure you’re incorporating lots of texture which will stop your home from looking dull.
Coming Up With Your Color Scheme
Coming up with your color scheme can be hard work. You want something that will last for years, and you don’t want to get bored. If you’re going for brighter colors, you can use a color wheel to figure out what colors are complementary, and what colors contrast best. Contrasting colors in a room can look incredible, such as teal and orange!
Having fun with your home decor will ensure you enjoy your home for years to come!
