First off, congratulations on your new home!
When you move into your new home, it is probably one of life’s most joyful moments for you and your family. But, at the same time, these moments can bring a lot of uncertainties, especially when you start with home decoration.
How should you decorate your home so that it reflects your personality? What are the easiest and cost-effective ways to decorate your new abode?
A thoughtful home décor makes you feel comfortable and happy. On the other hand, miss something, and your paint colors, fabric, and furniture may never congeal into a lovely whole.
With a little thoughtful planning and by following these expert tips, you will achieve success with your home decorating project.
#1 A Large-Scale Wall Art
The stark, bare walls in your house are filled with endless possibilities to make your house feel like a home.
One of the easiest and best ways to amp up an empty wall is to hang large-scale wall art. No matter your taste and style, you can get an artwork that reflects your lifestyle and adds personality to your space.
Every room in your home – living room, bedroom, dining area, kitchen – should have a focal point. When placed in the right area, wall art can instantly beautify your home while setting a tone of the room.
An oversized photograph or painting will grab the attention of your guests. Try a black and white wall art in a minimalist space or add vibrancy with colorful 7-piece wall art.
#2 Invest In Antique
Vintage lovers out there! Invest in antique home décor items to lend a pleasant rustic charm to your home.
Antiques carry special sentimental relevance. But avoid randomly throwing them up around your home that could make your space look outdated. There are several ways to decorate your home with antiques in a timeless manner.
Concentrate your vintage collections in a few areas to create a special focal point. Mix old and new to see the design evolution within a specific world. For instance, pair the 18th-century painting with a contemporary artist’s creation.
Against a vividly painted wall, place on the shelf artfully arranged milk glass to create a striking look. Ideally, choose Mercury glasses with the mirror finish or boldly colored Blenko glass.
#3 Decorate With Botanicals
Bringing botanicals indoor adds pops of color to your home décor while also purifying the air inside. You can easily transform your home’s appeal with indoor plants from succulents to low-light versions to plants.
Mix round, shiny, and matte plants and unify them with pots painted in a cohesive color palette. Add life to an empty corner with a tall fiddle-leaf fig. Get a lovely long-lasting bouquet with a phalaenopsis orchid that does well in a sunny bathroom.
Bedside lamps are old! Go for a leafy fern in a neutral space to turn your room into a minimalist enchanted forest.
Try mixing colorful pots or choose a neutral color scheme. Invest in geometric pots and chic plant hangers. You can even get a botanical wall art to add a lovely touch of natural beauty to your space.
#4 Open Up Your Space With Mirrors
Mirrors are an excellent way to make your space feel brighter, airier, and bigger than it is. Mirrors serve as a creative show-stopping centerpiece of your home.
In your favorite room, replace a round frame with a frame featuring curly flourishes around the edges. Choose a large, gold frame shaped in a charming geometric pattern. Open up your space with a massive, ornamentally framed mirror that will give the optical illusion of a bigger space. Use mirrors in your gallery wall to create an entire magnificent display of mirrors.
In your bathroom, a mirror behind the tub will make a unique statement. Pair a freestanding tub and a chandelier with an antique mirror wall to lend your bathroom an old-world charm.
# Mix Metals
Mixing metals adds elegant beauty and depth to your space. A glimmering metal can instantly add a glamorous beauty to you.
But mixing metals can be a bit tricky. Make sure you don’t stick with metal materials. Instead, add a decorative art piece with a copper hue or place silver kitchenware on display.
When mixing cool and warm metals, choose one dominant color and one accent hue. For the dominant warm color, choose cool colored accents. If you choose a dominant cool shade, add warm accents.
Today, metal works well in everything, from kitchen cabinets to furniture means, wardrobes, etc. The most popular metals for home décor are brass, aluminum, copper, stainless steel, and many more. The most popular metal finishes are brushed, hammered, antique, and satin.
