If you have just moved into your new home or you have decided that you’re not really feeling how it’s decorated at the moment, you can start to feel a little out of place in your own home. If you feel like the space doesn’t represent your style, it can feel more like a show home than something else. As such, to feel really comfortable, it can be crucial to nail down your decor style.
Here, we’re going to look at a few tips that can help you find your individual style, and how to make it shine throughout the home.
Start With The Colors That Suit You
If you want to start showing off some of your personality, then the base colors that make up the palette of the room can play a big role in that. If you’re not sure where to start, then think about the specific vibes you’re trying to match with the room, whether it’s a sense of relaxation in the bedroom, welcoming in the living room, freshness in the bathroom, and so on. From there, a little color psychology research can help you ensure you choose a color that feels fitting to the aim. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little with the accent colors, either.
Pick A Central Piece Of Furniture For Each Room
Don’t start by picking a selection of furniture because you think they would look good together or because you want them to fit a particular theme. If you want an aesthetic or a vibe that doesn’t feel “tacked on” then you should start by going with one piece of quality furniture that you really love. If you want a cozy set to sit back and relax in, go for it. Then, you start to build the rest of the style around that furniture, finding things to complement it, then other pieces to complement your complementary pieces. You will flesh out your own style much more naturally that way.
Choose Imagery That You Love
Choosing art that you love for the wall, be it abstract, classical, landscapes, photography or otherwise, can be an easy way to give a glimpse into your personality. However, a lot of people hesitate because they feel it can be too revealing and are worried about their tastes being judged. However, there are great sites to help you choose quality wall art so that, at the end of the day, all you have to worry about is making sure that you’re showing offer your personal taste and nothing else. Fitting artwork can be great for manifesting a theme if that’s your aim, too.
Show Off What You Love
Your personality isn’t just dictated by your interior design tastes, either. Your experiences, your passions, and your memories play a role in who you are and they can play a role in how your home speaks about you to visitors, as well. This can be as simple as finding a place to display a photo gallery in the home, be it of travel snaps, friends and family, or even photos you’re simply proud to have taken. However, a lot of people make space to display their hobbies, as well, whether it’s by framing classic movie posters, making a wall gallery out of vinyl album covers, or otherwise.
Make Use Of More Senses
You are going to want to go deeper than the looks of the home alone if you’re really trying to establish a feel for who you are. In particular, you can reach towards other senses than sights alone. As colors can help engage different emotional senses within a room, so too can the right scent do that. In fact, our sense of smell is much more closely connected to our emotional and memory centers, meaning they can elicit even more meaning for people. To that end, look at some of the different scent options you can put in your home, be it through scent diffusers, incense burning, or otherwise. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little to build a scent profile that you feel best fits your tastes and moods.
Your personality is going to go a lot further than just the tips mentioned above, of course. These are all aspects of how you can use it to decorate your home, but there are plenty of other ways you can let different sides of yourself shine out, whether it’s by using plants to showcase the caring, lively side of yours, or creating vignettes to let out a sense of creativity while establishing the theme of the room, hopefully, the tips above help.
