Do you have a place to call your own? No, I don’t mean a place you own specifically but rather a place that makes you feel like the instant you enter inside you know it’s yours, it’s filled with everything that represents you, where each and every piece in the interior speaks of your personality.
Buying a home can be expensive and the same goes for renovating a home, so the answer to getting an eye-catching interior environment with your stamp on it is relying on the help of house homewares. Same as we use accessories to complement our looks, pull them together if you will, we need to use accessories to make a home feel like one.
Though out of financial reasons you might first consider the price, having in mind there’s a vast range of affordable homewares both in brick-and-mortar stores as in specialised online décor stores, it’s advisable to think what’s the missing piece that would transform your home in harmony.
Is it colour you’re missing? Perhaps it’s texture you need more of, or pieces of storage to hide the mess away? Do you need more element of drama, light, or greenery? Answering to these questions would help you decide what it is you could use out of the variety of house homewares.
In the case of requiring more colour, there are all sorts of options of artworks available, from affordable prints to paintings and sculptures in different styles but before you purchase think of your interior décor as a whole, focusing on what would bring out its beauty the most, making a statement and adding visual interest to it without creating visual clutter.
Also, if you decide to create an accent wall using prints or paintings, make up your mind on how you’re going to arrange them; when you get tired, you could always rearrange them and get a completely new accent wall without even spending a dollar.
With texture there are so many ways you can accomplish it: one is to acquire various cushions, make the rooms cosy with rugs or curtains, the other adding warmth to the furniture with throws.
When you have a small home and every bit of space is important, the best solution to upgrade the look without cramming it is to buy homewares that are both fashionable and space-savvy so they can serve as both decorating and storage pieces, as in the example of ottomans.
Requiring more drama, consider the use of contrasts (it can be in terms of colours and furniture too), as well as lighting, relying on colours and lighting fixtures to do the trick however don’t underestimate the power of mirrors either. As for greenery, plants are stylish on their own, but when you add planters and pots to the deal you can pull off a great transformation for less.
