When you design your home, you would likely be thinking of the main points: walls, carpeting, ceiling fixtures etc. The last thing people think about is the stuff. The photos, curtains, the lampshades and even the light fittings. Once all the big stuff is done in a newly decorated room, it’s time to sweat the small stuff.
There are many ways you can brighten up a newly decorated space, from the kitchen to the bedroom. Vinyl coverings on the kitchen cupboards can transform a kitchen space, pieces of art from the best online art galleries can give your living room life. Invest in indoor plants to breathe some beauty into your home and choose light shades and lamps to fit the theme and colour palette of your home. If you are lucky enough to have children, they can help too. The crafts that they create are sometimes relocated to the bin, but there are other little gems children create that can make your home feel like it has more than just a uniform look. Quirky hand print paintings, glittery salt dough ornaments and varnished wonky pottery wouldn’t be out of place in a gallery, so they definitely wouldn’t be out of place in the home.
Little touches you give your home give it personality, life and colour. You don’t have to redecorate every time you want to change things around so when you design a room, make the colours basic and changeable. A cream, bright room can have any number of colour splashed through it on a regular basis if change is your thing. You could choose to be seasonal with your colour choices and go for bold yellows and oranges in the summer months, and swap to cosy checked patterns and velvety, plush cushions in the winter months. Christmas themes versus sunshine themes are a no brainer when you can change your décor through the year.
Small rugs that match our colour schemes can also be changed through the year so if you are in the financial position to invest in the right additions to your home you should do so. Pale colours for the spring and summer months add space and creativity to our lives. We love bright and airy for the warm months and dark and cosy for the cold months. You can save so much money just by changing your accessories.
Accessorising your home gives your life clutter – but in a good way. A plain white room can be minimalist and beautiful, but adding things to make your house transform into a home is exactly what everyone needs. We like to be surrounded by beautiful things that add depth to our existence and the accessories we can put into our home, including the smaller furnishings like coffee tables, give us that depth. Your home is your castle and you should accessorise it in the way that reflects you. Without steel knights and swords… castle it may be but go soft with your accessories. Go beautiful.
