Before you do anything, dig up a pair of scissors and create a mood board! We know it sounds silly, but if you’ve got a bunch of magazines lying around, why not put them to good use and use them to create your own real-life dream home? This is a fantastic way of understanding your own style a little better. See if you can explore why you like certain colours, shapes, designs, textures and objects – this can help you discern and make choices down the line about what you want to decorate your home with. Here are some of the key additions, however, to a room that will immediately lift the look. They are timeless and proven to be durable, so they are a great investment for your money. According to home design experts, it only takes a few staple items to make a room look immediately better. And if all else fails, there are always ways to make your home look nice without actually buying anything.
For the Lounge Room
A cotton waffle blanket draped over your lounge is a great way of adding a cosy sense of style to a room. You can get blankets and throws in a range of colours and designs, so there’s no need for it to disrupt your existing colour scheme either. And if you don’t yet have a colour scheme, that’s okay as well! You can come up with a colour scheme of two to three colours – or monotone is always a safe bet, with a splash of colour. For example, if you have a black or white lounge, maybe you go for something bold like a red or yellow blanket. This is a great way of adding understated, effortless style to your home while also creating a welcoming atmosphere for visitors.
Change Up the Lighting
When you change up the lighting, you’re changing up the mood of the entire room. Can’t pick a colour? A white or yellow light is always a safe bet, or if you’re feeling adventurous, there are now colour change lights available which you can change to suit whatever mood you’re in at the time. These are relatively cheap, and all it takes is a plain lampshade to go with it.
We hope this has given you some fresh ideas and left you feeling inspired. There are endless ways you can boost the look of any space, and it doesn’t take an interior designer’s help despite what you may think! It just takes a little know-how, a little research and maybe some trial and error. Your home is your space, and you deserve to have a space that reflects you and your personality.
