4 tips to find the design for your home
The style must be defined because of your personality
It really is true: the house speaks for ourselves and sometimes we have been so concerned about the impression the 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 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 looks in decor publications. To begin with, you have to love and admit yourself and how will you live. You must think about your home as a place which shows your visual personal information: a representation of yourself, your personality and the result of your daily habits.
Often I question about which would be my interior decor style. I wish to see pictures of nominal properties, but I also get excited about spaces or flats. What it holds true is the fact that, actually, I wouldn't prefer to live in any of these houses because it wouldn't be comfortable to live on 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 like me. Sometimes, a little crazy: I like to have family or my kids photos at perception and being surrounded by handmade things that There is to get, in second-hand markets or online. For me personally, this details are the ones that make my home cozy. Crops are also a essential necessity in my own home.
Last but not least: if your home is consistent with your personality, you would be also more content and would enjoy more every little moment there.
Look for objects that give you this feeling
Let yourself be led because of your instinct. You will find items that immediately get you and say something for you, awakening emotions within us. Personally, i feel that being taken along because of this sentiment is not high-risk.
For example: I like to discover these little brands from creative people; I'm very sensitive to the delicacy of the imperfection and, because of this, their creations are unique and exquisite for me. I prefer them somewhat than commercial products from big brands and stores and I really believe they make my home a alluring 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 large part of the day and would give you peace of mind, making your home your shelter.
When utilizing a assortment of different colored and textured casings, choose black and white images to keep them from looking cluttered. African american & white images can also give the display a more unified look. I had my friend Kristen from Studio7 Interior Design help me choose decorative frames & art for a small gallery wall in my entry.
This was a wall that would normally go un-noticed. I wanted to carefully turn it into a focal point. I held all my images in dark-colored & white except the family picture in the guts. The target was to bring the attention there first, then to the black & white images in the exterior frames. Similarly as effective would be to choose bright colored images for solid black structures or stable white framessuch as this wall, also designed by my friend Kristen.
Choose larger sized prints and canvases for areas where you can see them over the room. What's the idea in printing small 4x6's and 5x7's if you cannot see them unless you walk up to them?
The prints on my mantel would have to be big (at least 16x20) to be able to enjoy them from over the room. The top the first is a 22x27 inch size. I actually can have ended up bigger for the area available, but I didn't want to pay the ornamental trim-work of the complete mantel. So, definitely, take into consideration the space you are filling when deciding what size you can go.
I also chose a more timeless, creative image of my children walking, rather a huge portrait of your faces. This was a personal decision when i was going for a more artistic believe that travelled with the style and colors of the area. Despite the fact that our faces remain unseen, we are very well displayed by the composition in the image as well as in the up close of the kids in the image next to it.
Way too many portraits around your home? Try converting a few of your images into art work using the Waterlogue app! This is a good way to use your images, but give them an alternative look. My home design friend recommends exhibiting art work or still life/food in your kitchen, alternatively than portraits. An image altered through this iphone app might be considered a good alternate. Here's an example of an image turned into artwork using the Waterlogue app. (Image by Liz Behm)
Choose photos to display that were used that particular room of your house. For example, food photography in your kitchen, lifestyle images in the living room, bath images of your children in the tub shown in the toilet, and much more personal images in the bedroom.
Last week I chose I needed to fill the space above a doorway in my kitchen with some food images.
Considerations I created before I got the images:
Just 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 kitchen.
How those images would look from across the room.
Because I couldn't go bigger than a 10x10, I chose to use my macro zoom lens and tried to capture close-up textures of the fruits vs. a far more styled shot with atmosphere that might be harder to see from across the room.
Edit your images to match the design of the space it'll be in. For example, light and airy, rich in color & comparison, dark-colored & white, etc. Also, if you are exhibiting images together, edit them hand and hand in your editing and enhancing program to make certain they combine well and the colour is steady from image to image.
I did this with my fruit images. I relocated them around in Photoshop to help me visualize how they would look hung. I segregated the blueberry image (mainly blue) and the grapefruit (blue record) with the yellowish pineapple in the centre so each image would stand out and look healthy next to each other.
