Adding a personal touch to your house through décor, interiors and colour is the first step towards making it your home. These additions not only add to the aesthetics of your home; they are also a fitting way to settle in and create a space that is your own. Although this process is exciting and fun, the plethora of choices that a blank canvas like a new home presents can also be daunting and tiresome. From the colour of your walls to the plants in your balcony, everything presents an opportunity to customise your dream home.
As you begin this journey, some décor decisions can set the tone and a theme for your entire house. A great way to start is to browse through some of the latest décor trends to pick the ones which will suit your tastes while being in fashion at the same time.
Make a statement
Think beyond statement furniture pieces. As you decorate your new home, you can make a statement and express your vision for the house in many ways. It can be through bold colours on your walls, a historic piece of future, an eye-catching wallpaper or by opting for a particular style of décor such as bohemian. This single choice can turn an empty house into an expression of yourself and your family.
According to the popular interior design provider Livspace*, one of the latest trends in interiors is opting for bold colours. Many people are opting for colours that they prefer and like over the conventional choices. Bold choices needn’t be limited to bright colours and flashy décor accents. A bold choice can be something as simple as striking a two-tone theme with a splash of colour or merging of living spaces to enhance the usable area. Thinking out of the box can help you create something individualistic and practical.
An increasing number of people are embracing the adage less is more. It covers all aspect of living, including furniture, electronics, accents etc. Minimalistic décor is perfect for making compact spaces look larger and spacious. The key to embracing this concept is understanding that every object that you bring into your home needs to have a purpose. While this trend advocates less, it requires an immense amount of thought to choose items that will serve your needs while looking minimalistic. If you want to try this concept, remember to select furniture and décor accents that are classic as well as practical because each piece of décor will attract attention individually and will stay with you for a long time.
Bringing nature home
Plants add a splash of colour and bring the goodness of nature into your home. Plants, succulents, verticals gardens, and bonsai are becoming popular accessory choices in urban dwellings. As the green cover is shrinking in urban areas, plants that purify the air and keep insects away or herbs used while cooking is a popular choice. These can add a touch of green to your home along with offering additional benefits. There are a variety of options available in the local nurseries to suit your choices and needs.
Light it up
Light plays a vital role in our lives. The correct lighting can impact our mood, productivity and health. It can energise us and highlight the things that matter the most t. Light, whether it is natural or artificial, can also change the setting of your home from bright and energising during family time to warm and to invite while you entertain. Ambient lighting, appropriate fixtures and layered lighting are solutions that can help you create the perfect ambience as per your requirements in every room. Remember to consider your needs first and customise the trends accordingly. Whether you decide to decorate your house on your own or hire an interior designer, always remember to put your preferences on priority to ensure that your house feels like home every time you step in.
