Texture satiates your thirst for a make over. Even an all-white room can look interesting with texture. It changes the look and feel of a particular space in a unique way. True enough, it warms up a room especially when you use bold colors alongside it. Why? Because it builds up the character of your space, just like how a particular attribute builds up the personality of a person.
Tip: Try textured furniture and accents as a focal point.
Experiment with scale
Some homeowners fall prey to looking at furniture individually and figuring out that things don’t add up when put together. If you’re not as skilled in interior design as you’d wish to, it wouldn’t hurt to look at scaling suggestions. Visually speaking, you need scale to create balance and harmony – even despite the varying sizes of your furniture.
Tip: Study color and size complements so you can have a comfortable and functional space all throughout.
Although the arts is always dynamic and evolving, there is no denying that new designs may stem from theories and principles of the past. Also, traditional artisans didn’t have access to advanced technology or the digital age by then, and that deserves a high level of respect in terms of craftsmanship. If you want to add a vintage charm in your home that can only be pulled off by using classic finds, go for it. Take delight in artisan touches and learn their roots.
Tip: To find classic or vintage-inspired home accessories and items, scour flea markets and aim for small DIY projects that take you through the process of creating.
Add an organic feel
A lot of home decors are inspired from Mother Nature itself… because it naturally is awe-inspiring and downright beautiful. If you share the same sentiments, why not add nature elements in your space? Not only will it look artistic, it will also lend that warm and inviting feel to guests. Earth tones are great to work with especially if you know how to complement the greens and browns.
Tip: Start by gathering nature-inspired items from your surroundings and create a humble masterpiece out of that (for accent).
Experiment with ideas! “Everywhere” is one big treasure trove of design inspirations that will remain inexhaustible, no matter where you look. Stay true to being eclectic – mix and match to your heart’s content. Just try and practice, eventually you will get the hang of it.
Tip: Start experimenting on a small space as a project and change it occasionally.
