Home Decor: 4 Tips to Turn your House into a Home
Your home should be a sanctuary – a place to escape the stresses of daily life. It should also be a reflection of you. There is a reason the phrase “I feel at home here” is the most commonly used expression to indicate serenity, comfort, and belonging.
Here are 4 ways you can customize your living area and ensure you feel at home in your own house:
1. Accent Walls – With Wallpaper!
The concept of an accent wall has been around for a while, and is still a great way to add a little life to a room without overwhelming the space. Generally, this is done by painting one wall in the room a solid color. Why not switch it up a bit and wallpaper a wall instead? Wallpapering an accent wall is the perfect way to blend the slightly retro feel of wallpaper with the more modern style of an accent wall. This also gives you access to the wider variety of patterns, colors, and styles that are found in wallpaper, providing you with an abundance of styling options that will allow you to express yourself in more fun, unique, and oh-so-you ways.
Book shelves can make your home feel cozier while adding elements of style. Whether you go with a rich mahogany, traditional-style book-case, or a light, modern ladder-style book shelf to prop against a wall, book cases allow you to customize the feel of a room while still serving a practical purpose. Dress things up even more by including pictures, sentimental items, or stylish vases and other decor pieces among your books!
Whether you’re adding a frame to an elegant painting or a favorite family photo, the style of frame you choose can be a great way to add warmth and decoration in the details! Be sure to pick frames that both accentuate the content within them, and match and enhance the overall feel of the room.
An often overlooked element of home decor is the use of mirrors. They can enhance the elegance of a room, or make a room feel larger and brighter by reflecting a light source. If you’re going for the latter effect, choose mirrors that are larger in size, and positioned to reflect the sun coming through a window, or soft light from a lamp. If you’re looking to enhance the elegance of a room, choose smaller mirrors with mono-color ornate frames, or sleek, simplistic, modern styles.
