Few things are as fun as decorating your home, but creating a beautiful space full of your personality is harder than it sounds! Luckily, that’s where we come in. Here are a few ways to ensure your abode is brimming with all things that are perfectly you.
Never Underestimate the Power of Curb Appeal
Put as much effort into your entryway as you do inside your house. After all, it is the first impression people get of your home. Consider painting your front door, hanging a wreath, adding plants, or even updating your address numbers to completely transform the curb appeal.
Make It Personal
Set aside time to go through your belongings and decide which items are most important to you – and how to incorporate them into your decor. It doesn’t matter whether they are souvenirs, works of art, maps, photographs, or classic movie posters; if they mean something, you should display them!
Mix and Match
We would guess that your fashion sense can’t be defined in just a word, so why try to make your home fit that mold? Instead, feel free to mix and match to your heart’s content! Your home is a reflection of your style, and if that means you have a shabby-chic rug and an art-deco coffee table, so be it.
Judge a Book by Its Cover
Coffee table books are game-changers. Not only are they art, but they also reflect your hobbies and interests. So whether you’re passionate about the lost art of letter writing or vintage fashion, accumulate books on these topics and keep them out on display.
Functional, but Make It Fashion
Those of us living in smaller spaces have the added challenge of finding pieces that say who we are while serving a purpose. So as you’re shopping for home decor, ask yourself how you plan on using an item and not just whether you like it.
Add Some Greenery
Plants, both real and fake, can add so much depth, color, and texture to a room – and it doesn’t matter what style you’re going for or your plant-parenting abilities. If you’re bookish, consider a drooping vine or small succulents that you can work into your bookshelves. If you’re more of a minimalist, placing small plants in a neutral planter can add just enough color to a wicker side table.
Drawing a Blank? Get Basic
If decorating feels overwhelming, we recommend starting with all things neutral. The amazing thing about neutral colors like black, white, or beige is that you can easily build on them with colorful pillows, blankets, rugs, and other accent pieces. If your space feels cluttered, donate items that no longer serve you.
