4 tips to choose the decor for your home
The style must be described by your personality
It really is true: the house speaks for ourselves and sometimes we have been so worried about the impression our house is going to make among our guests that we forget that, before anything, it is our home, our most private space.
For this reason, looking for accessories for our home, we end buying things that people do not use. My first advice is to encourage you to find your own style. Do not get confused: you don't need to follow a pattern because it appears in decor publications. First of all, you have to love and accept yourself and how do you live. You must think about your home as a location which reflects your visual identification: a representation of yourself, your personality and the consequence of your daily behaviors.
Often I question about which would be my interior design style. I want to see pictures of little homes, but I also get worked up about spaces or flats. What it holds true is the fact that, actually, I wouldn't like to live in any of these houses because it wouldn't be comfortable to live a life my everyday routine.
What I've done? I'm not getting frustrated any more intending that my house follows a tendency or another and I've accepted that my home is like me. Sometimes, a little crazy: I want to have family or my kids photos at perception and being ornamented by handmade objects that There is to get, in second-hand marketplaces or online. For me personally, this details will be the ones that produce my home cozy. Vegetation are also a essential necessity in my home.
To sum up: if your home is in line with your personality, you would be also more pleased and would enjoy more every little moment in time there.
Look for items that give you this feeling
Let yourself be guided from your instinct. A couple of items that immediately get you and say something for you, awakening emotions inside of us. I personally feel that being carried along because of this feeling is not dangerous.
For example: I want to discover these little brands from creative people; I'm sensitive to the delicacy of the imperfection and, because of this, their creations are unique and perfect for me. I prefer them rather than commercial products from big brands and stores and I really believe they make my home a captivating home.
Also, if you buy objects which may have this emotional connection with you, this sentiment will be moved into your home: positive emotions that would encircle you a huge area of the day and would offer you peace of mind, making your home your shelter.
Keep Coloring in Mind
What color is the furniture in the area? How about the wall? Think about accent pillows? All these things matter and the skill (and framing) should match the coloring of the area around it. While this is tricky, the results will be far better when everything is coordinated. Not matchy-matchy always, but of the same color family and feel.
In my own bedroom, for example, I decided to go with three floral images with softer hues that are presented by the Wythe Blue of the wall membrane, while the casings are dark timber, matching the color of the headboard and lampshades.
The floral images are of the same color family as the wall and quilt, as the frames match the lumber of the headboard.
REMEMBER the Frame
If you opt to hang a graphic, the framework should complement both the d?cor of the area and the coloring and design of the piece itself. You will also need to decide if you would like matting or not - while matting can increase the wall membrane size of an inferior piece, be wary of allowing a printing to drown in its border. Generally speaking, smaller portions with large matting only be successful if the image is simple and visible from afar. If someone needs to peer up close at a piece to understand it, comprehensive matting is a no-no.
For the frame material, there are many choices. A wood frame with a carved design can have a good shabby-chic feel, particularly if it's been coated. For a straight vintage look, simply dark wood structures work great. If you want a modernist or modern-day vibe, steel or black structures are the strategy to use.
Also, if you like vibrant d?cor, don't be reluctant to go with a bright-colored frame, particularly if the space requires a pop as well as your color choice fits another highlight in the space.
Keep Costs Down WHERE YOU ARE ABLE TO
If you're going with a print out, framing can be costly. Lower costs by only using prints that easily fit into standard-sized frames, which are significantly cheaper than custom structures. You can even look for antique frames at garage area and real estate sales and then work backward, filling in the photo once you've the frame.
Or, one of the features of a wall-mounted shelf or other unorthodox decor is having less framework - that can often be a big cost savings. There are often creative workarounds. The business Wellmade offers Gallery STiiCKs that can body any poster on two factors for a fraction of what traditional framing costs - that's what I chose for my three prints above the bed.
There are also companies that printing images onto canvas or lumber - which don't need a frame by any means. If you're a shutterbug and also have some great pictures you'd like to hang, this may be your chance. Shutterfly offers this service, for example, and you will often find half-off offers.
For my dining room (pictured above), which also offers high ceilings and mixes directly into the living room, I had developed two images made and opt for custom size for each and every that fit the wall-space flawlessly. Because I'm a deal-hunter, the combined pair cost less than $100 - about the price tag on getting one large-ish poster custom framed.
Choosing the right art for a sizable space isn't easy - but it can be done if you take the time to essentially plan out the thing you need. Think through the size, type, colouring, framing and cost of what you want. And get ideas from the web and beyond - sites like Houzz can provide you great ideas, as can home d?cor newspapers, or even just shopping at home goods stores and finding how they have their showrooms create.
The key is visualizing what you need before you have it and then patiently working toward discovering the right fine art at the right cost for your space. Don't rush things - Rome wasn't built in a day, and your home won't be decorated per day. But when your home is fully decorated, it will look fabulous!
