4 tips to choose the decor for your home
The style must be defined from your personality
It is true: the house talks for ourselves and sometimes we are so worried about the impression our house will 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 have to follow a craze because it looks in decor magazines. To begin with, you have to love and allow yourself and how do you live. You have to consider your home as a place which displays your visual identity: a representation of yourself, your personality and the result of your daily practices.
Often I think about about which would be my interior design style. I love to see pictures of little houses, but I also get excited about spaces or apartments. What it holds true is the fact that, actually, I wouldn't prefer to live in these houses since it wouldn't be comfortable to live on my everyday living.
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, a little crazy: I love to have family or my kids photographs at vision and being surrounded by handmade items that I've found in stores, in second-hand markets or online. For me, this details will be the ones that produce my home cozy. Plants are also a vital necessity in my own home.
Last but not least: if your home is in line with your personality, you would be also more happy and would enjoy more every little minute there.
Look for things that give you this feeling
Let yourself be guided by your instinct. You will find objects that immediately get you and say something to you, awakening emotions inside of us. Personally, i think that being transported along for this feelings is not risky.
For example: I love 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 perfect for me. I prefer them somewhat than commercial products from big brands and stores and I believe they make my house a wonderful home.
Also, if you buy objects which may have this emotional connection with you, this feelings will be moved into the home: positive feelings that would encompass you a big part of the day and would give you satisfaction, making your home your shelter.
When using a collection of different colored and textured structures, choose dark-colored and white images to keep them from looking cluttered. Black color & white images can also give the display a more unified look. I needed my friend Kristen from Studio room7 HOME DESIGN help me choose attractive frames & art work for a little gallery wall in my entry.
This was a wall that could normally go un-noticed. I needed to carefully turn it into a center point. I placed all my images in dark-colored & white except the family photography in the center. The goal was to bring the eye there first, then to the dark-colored & white images in the exterior frames. In the same way as effective would be to choose multi-colored images for stable black casings or solid white framessuch as this wall membrane, also created by my pal Kristen.
Choose larger sized prints and canvases for areas where you can view them across the room. What's the point in printing small 4x6's and 5x7's if you can't see them unless you walk up to them?
The images on my mantel would have to be big (at least 16x20) in order to take pleasure from them from over the room. The top an example may be a 22x27 in . size. I actually would have vanished bigger for the space available, but I didn't want to protect the ornamental trim-work of the complete mantel. So, certainly, consider the space you are filling up when deciding what size you can go.
I also opt for more timeless, artistic image of my family walking, rather an enormous portrait of our faces. This was a personal decision as I was taking a more artistic believe that gone with the style and colors of the room. Even though our faces remain unseen, we are very well symbolized by the structure in the image as well as in the close up of the youngsters in the image next to it.
Way too many portraits all over your home? Try switching a few of your images into artwork using the Waterlogue app! This is a sensible way to use your images, but give them another look. My home design friend recommends exhibiting skill or still life/food in your kitchen, alternatively than portraits. An image altered through this software might be considered a good option. Here's a good example of an image turned into skill using the Waterlogue app. (Image by Liz Behm)
Choose photos to show that were taken in that one room of your home. For instance, food photography in the kitchen, lifestyle images in the family room, bath images of your children in the tub viewed in the bathroom, and even more personal images in the bed room.
Last week I made the decision I needed to fill the area above a doorway in my kitchen with some food images.
Considerations I made before I had taken the images:
Just how much space I needed to fill and how many images.
Appropriate size to the space.
The style/colors that could go well in my own kitchen.
How those images would look from across the room.
Because I couldn't go bigger than a 10x10, I thought we would use my macro lens and tried to capture close-up textures of the berry vs. a more styled shot with atmosphere that might be harder to see from over the room.
Edit your photographs to match the design of the space it'll be in. For instance, light and airy, abundant with color & contrast, dark & white, etc. Also, if you are displaying images collectively, edit them side by side in your editing and enhancing program to ensure they combine well and the color is steady from image to image.
I did so this with my berries images. I changed them around in Photoshop to help me visualize how they might look hung. I separated the blueberry image (largely blue) and the grapefruit (blue history) with the yellow pineapple in the middle so each image would stand out and look balanced next to each other.
