4 tips to choose the adornment for your home
The style must be described because of your personality
It is true: the house talks for ourselves and sometimes we have been so worried about the impression our house will make among our guests that we ignore that, before anything, it is our home, our most private space.
Because of this, looking for accessories for our home, we end buying things that we do not use. My first advice is to encourage you to find your own style. Do not get confused: you don't have to follow a craze because it appears in decor newspapers. To begin with, you have to love and recognize yourself and how do you live. You have to think about your home as a place which demonstrates your visual identity: a reflection of yourself, your personality and the consequence of your daily habits.
Often I question about which would be my interior design style. I wish to see pictures of little properties, but I also get excited about spaces or flats. What it holds true is that, actually, I wouldn't prefer to live in any of these houses since it wouldn't be comfortable to reside in my everyday activities.
What I've done? I'm not getting frustrated ever again intending that my home follows a tendency or another and I've accepted that my home is similar to me. Sometimes, just a little crazy: I like to have family or my kids photos at eyesight and being ornamented by handmade things that I've found in stores, in second-hand markets or online. For me, this details are the ones that make my home cozy. Vegetation are also a essential necessity in my home.
To sum up: if your house is in line with your personality, you would be also more happy and would enjoy more every little second there.
Look for items that give you this feeling
Let yourself be led from your instinct. There are objects that immediately get you and say something to you, awakening emotions inside of us. Personally, i feel that being transported along because of this feeling is not risky.
For example: I wish to discover these little brands from creative people; I'm delicate to the delicacy of the imperfection and, because of that, their masterpieces are unique and ideal for me. I prefer them rather than commercial products from big brands and stores and I believe they make my house a captivating home.
Also, if you get objects that have this emotional connection with you, this feeling will be moved into the home: positive thoughts that would encircle you a major part of the day and would give you peace of mind, making your home your shelter.
Keep Coloring at heart
What color is the furniture in the area? How about the wall? How about accent pillows? All these things subject and the fine art (and framing) should match the colouring of the area around it. While this is difficult, the results will be much better when everything is coordinated. Not matchy-matchy always, but of the same color family and feel.
In my bedroom, for example, I select three floral images with softer hues that are brought out by the Wythe Blue of the wall, while the frames are dark real wood, matching the color of the headboard and lampshades.
The floral images are of the same color family as the wall structure and quilt, while the casings match the wood of the headboard.
Don't Forget the Frame
If you opt to hang a graphic, the structure should complement both d?cor of the area and the coloring and design of the piece itself. You can also need to choose if you need matting or not - while matting can boost the wall size of a smaller piece, be skeptical of allowing a print to drown in its boundary. Generally speaking, smaller bits with large matting only do well if the image is very simple and visible from afar. If someone needs to peer up close at a piece to understand it, considerable matting is a no-no.
As for the frame materials, there are many choices. A wood frame with a carved design can have a nice shabby-chic feel, especially if it's been decorated. For a in a straight line vintage look, plain dark wood structures work great. If you want a modernist or modern-day vibe, metallic or black frames are the strategy to use.
Also, if you like vivid d?cor, you shouldn't be scared to go with a bright-colored body, particularly if the space requires a pop and your color choice matches another accent in the space.
LOWER COSTS Where You Can
If you're choosing a print, framing can be costly. Keep costs down by only using prints that easily fit into standard-sized frames, that happen to be significantly cheaper than custom frames. You can also look for vintage frames at garage and estate sales and then work backward, completing the photo once you've the frame.
Or, one of the features of a wall-mounted shelf or other unorthodox decoration is the lack of structure - that can often be a big cost benefits. There tend to be creative workarounds. The company Wellmade offers Gallery STiiCKs that can body any poster on two sides for a small fraction of what traditional framing costs - that's what I decided to go with for my three images above the foundation.
There's also companies that print out photos onto canvas or wood - which don't need a frame in any way. If you are a shutterbug and also have some great pictures you would like to hang, this may be your chance. Shutterfly offers this service, for example, and you can often find half-off bargains.
For my dining area (pictured above), which also has high ceilings and blends directly into the living room, I needed two designs made and opt for custom size for each that fit the wall-space perfectly. Because I'm a deal-hunter, the mixed pair cost less than $100 - about the price of getting one large-ish poster custom framed.
Choosing the right art for a large space isn't easy - but it can be done if you take the time to really plan out the thing you need. Think through the scale, type, colouring, framing and cost of what you would like. And get motivation from the web and beyond - sites like Houzz can provide you great ideas, as can home d?cor mags, or even just shopping at home goods stores and discovering that they have their showrooms setup.
The key is visualizing the thing you need before you own it and then patiently working toward discovering the right artwork at the right cost for your space. Don't dash things - Rome wasn't built-in a day, and your home will not be decorated per day. But when your property is fully decorated, it will look fabulous!
