Don’t think that you need to use large and loud accessories to enhance your home; small details can make all the difference. A simple crystal vase with fresh flowers is more than enough; add a few other pieces and you’re all set to go.
Make smaller rooms appear larger.
The darker your room colour, the smaller your room will feel. Don’t be afraid to do-it-yourself, try painting your room with lighter colours and see how it can open up your space.
Mirrors are not only great for being used in lieu of art to fill up empty wall spaces, but for adding light and making a room feel larger as well. This is just a part of basic home decorating.
Patterns and Textures.
Mixing up patterns and textures creates a warm and rich environment and brings sophistication to a space. Don’t be afraid to mix and match.
Try using three colours or shades, preferably ones that speak to you. One colour should be used for the wall, one colour should be used for the larger accents in the space and the last colour should be used for smaller accessories. Remember that colour is influenced by great lighting.
Try to find one large statement piece of furniture. According to interior designers, a mixture of big and small is the key to successful design. Create a balanced space by mixing and matching furniture sizes and styles.
So simple, right?
Flowers and plants can really just add that final touch to your space. Remember that we don’t mean fake flowers, those absolutely do not count.
Mix old and new.
Enhancing your home doesn’t mean you have to go out and spend a fortune on new items, you can still create an inviting space by mixing your current furniture and decor with pieces that you already have. Through doing this, your space will feel much more rejuvenated and diverse.
Use what you already have to decorate.
You don’t need expensive art or decorative items to decorate your walls or enhance your home. You will be amazed with what you can do with what you already have.
Not only can a rug add functionality to your space, but it can also bring texture, colour and personality as well.
These 10 tips work together to create a welcoming, enhanced and well designed home. At the end of the day, don’t forget about what you want as you’re the one that’s going to see it and live in it every day. Create something that you love and that showcases who you are as an individual. Good luck!
