There’s no better time than the present to make your home exactly what you want. Turn your space into a beautiful, personal representation of you and your family. There are many ways you can accomplish this. Here are a few ideas to help get you started!
A Reflection of You
What’s your favorite color? Do you like stripes, plaid, polka dots, or abstract art? Do you like a minimalistic feel to your space or do you like maximal design? Paint or wallpaper? What about furniture? There’s a lot to consider. Take note of all your preferences in order to create a space that reflects you perfectly. If you need help deciding, pickwickandelm.com has an article that walks you through the process of choosing the perfect wallpaper. The information in the article can be applied to many aspects of design. Use it to help you determine your style and preferences.
Visual appeal is just a fancy way of saying, ‘make it beautiful’. Go with moody vibes, make it light and bright, add color, or make it neutral. No matter what, just make sure it’s a space that you love to look at. You’re much more likely to spend time in a place that makes you feel happy while there.
Some people like perfectly curated, matching pieces throughout their entire home. However, the best décor involves incorporating meaningful items. Find pieces that represent you, your likes, hobbies, family, passions, etc. The goal is for someone to see your space and possibly learn something new about you. Lisa Batson Goldberg, a writer for forbes.com elaborates by saying, “Using items that have significance to you is a simple way to customize your living space. Maybe you bought a Buddha statue on your trip to Thailand or have a funky piece of pottery that your mother made in school. Maybe you have some awesome books you’d like to showcase, or your Grandma’s gorgeous quilt you can hang on a big, empty wall. Incorporating items that make you feel warm and fuzzy into your decor will help you feel that way more often.” It’s about feeling connected to your home. Personal touches make that possible.
One of the most important aspects of any space is lighting. It can make or break a room. Great lighting often requires you to think outside the box. Consider adding elements like twinkle lights, neon signs, sconces, or an interesting lamp. Excellent lighting will help set the mood of your space.
To finish personalizing your home, add some plants. The type of plant you choose can say a lot about you. Whether you choose big or small, high or low maintenance, real or fake, this element will breathe life into your space. Plants are another tool to help you form a connection with your home.
