When it comes to interior design, we all want our perfect dream home, and we often have some idea of what that entails. And, we should, as one’s perfect home should be a reflection of one’s inner self and external personality. However, it can often be difficult to express the multifaceted and complex individual that you are, and so we could all use some help narrowing our focus in order to more easily construct our dream home. Here are a few simple tips to get you started.
First and foremost, a theme can do wonders for your living space. Whether it’s a one room them, one that spans your whole house, or simply different themes for different rooms, a theme can add a feeling of cohesion to your space and bring it to life. A great theme idea could be an oceanic theme. For this, you would want to have walls and carpets in shades of greens and blues such as teal, turquoise, and seafoam, for starters. You would also want to expand on your theme with thematic decor such as seashells, anchors, or nautical stars. Don’t forget the power of art in this equation. Hanging thematic paintings can elevate your theme to new heights. Don’t be afraid to spend a little with QVC to find some new decor to meet your goal.
Another element of interior design to consider is flow. For example, when arranging furniture, imagine lines along the floor making pathways around the the room and from one room to the next. Make these pathways conducive to moving around your space to make getting around feel as easy and carefree as possible for best results. You could also, if you’re feeling daring, take the time to adhere to the rules of feng shui for optimal flow and fortune.
