4 tips to find the Best Decoration for your home
The style must be defined because of your personality
It really is true: our house talks for ourselves and sometimes our company is so worried about the impression the house will make among our guests that we ignore 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 development because it looks in decor magazines. First of all, you have to love and admit yourself and how will you live. You must consider your home as a location which shows your visual personality: a reflection of yourself, your personality and the result of your daily practices.
Often I question about which would be my interior design style. I want to see pictures of nominal homes, but I also get excited about spaces or apartments. What it is true is that, actually, I wouldn't prefer to live in these houses since it wouldn't be comfortable to live on my everyday activities.
What I've done? I'm not getting frustrated any more intending that my home follows a trend or another and I've accepted that my home is similar to me. Sometimes, a little crazy: I like to have family or my kids photographs at perception and being surrounded by handmade objects that I've found to get, in second-hand markets or online. For me personally, this details are the ones that produce my home cozy. Crops are also a essential necessity in my own home.
To sum up: if your house 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 provide you this feeling
Let yourself be led because of your instinct. A couple of objects that immediately get you and say something for you, awakening emotions inside of us. Personally, i feel that being carried along for this feeling is not risky.
For instance: I want to discover these little brands from creative people; I'm hypersensitive to the delicacy of the imperfection and, because of this, their masterpieces are unique and ideal for me. I favor them alternatively than commercial products from big brands and stores and I really believe they make my home a charming home.
Also, if you buy objects that contain this emotional connection with you, this sentiment will be transferred into the home: positive emotions that would surround you a major area of the day and would give you peace of mind, making your home your shelter.
When by using a assortment of different coloured and textured structures, choose dark and white images to keep them from looking cluttered. Dark & white images can also give the display a more unified look. I needed my pal Kristen from Studio7 HOME DESIGN help me choose decorative frames & fine art for a small gallery wall in my entry.
This is a wall that could normally go un-noticed. I needed to turn it into a center point. I held all my images in black & white except the family picture in the guts. The goal was to sketch the eye there first, then to the dark-colored & white images in the outside frames. In the same way as effective would be to choose multi-colored images for sturdy black frames or stable white framessuch as this wall membrane, also created by my friend Kristen.
Choose larger measured prints and canvases for areas where you can view them across the room. What's the point in producing small 4x6's and 5x7's if you cannot see them unless you walk up to them?
The prints on my mantel needed to be big (at least 16x20) in order to enjoy them from over the room. The big you are a 22x27 inch size. I actually may have vanished bigger for the space available, but I didn't want to hide the attractive trim-work of the entire mantel. So, naturally, consider the area you are filling when deciding how big you can go.
I also opt for more timeless, creative image of my family walking, rather an enormous portrait of our faces. This was an individual decision as I was taking a more artistic believe that went with the style and colors of the area. Even though our faces remain unseen, we are extremely well represented by the composition in the image as well as in the close up of the youngsters in the image next to it.
Too many portraits around your home? Try changing some of your images into artwork using the Waterlogue app! That is a good way to use your images, but provide them with a new look. My home design friend recommends displaying fine art or still life/food in your kitchen, somewhat than portraits. An image turned through this software might be a good solution. Here's an example of an image turned into art work using the Waterlogue app. (Image by Liz Behm)
Choose photos to show that were used that particular room of your home. For example, food picture taking in the kitchen, lifestyle images in the family room, bath images of your children in the tub shown in the toilet, and much more personal images in the bed room.
The other day I decided I had a need to fill the area above a doorway in my own kitchen with some food images.
Considerations I created before I got the images:
How much space I had a need to fill and how many images.
Appropriate size with 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 when compared to a 10x10, I thought we would use my macro zoom lens and tried to capture close-up textures of the berries vs. a more styled shot with atmosphere that could be harder to see from over the room.
Edit your photos to complement the design of the space it will be in. For instance, light and airy, abundant with color & distinction, black & white, etc. Also, if you are showing images alongside one another, edit them hand and hand in your editing and enhancing program to ensure they combine well and the colour is regular from image to image.
I did this with my berries images. I migrated them around in Photoshop to help me imagine how they might look hung. I segregated the blueberry image (typically blue) and the grapefruit (blue qualifications) with the yellowish pineapple in the centre so each image would stick out and look well balanced next to one another.
