Home décor tips and tricks
The secret to succeeding with your home interior is to choose a theme and build from that. A simple first step is to choose one base color as a foundation, and then add two to three contrasting colors and materials. It’ll narrow down your options, making it easier to know what to look for. Use mood boards to gather inspiration and see how your chosen theme and color scheme work together.
When you’ve got your theme and colors, it’s time to start decorating! This is the fun part, but it’s easy to get ahead of oneself and just put things up all over the place. To make sure that home accessories make a well thought out impression, interior designers often use a simple trick that’ll turn your room from cluttered to clean: still lifes.
From chaos to order with still lifes
Place your objects in groups of three or five (trust us, the uneven number makes all the difference), and make sure you work with different heights. For example: put three pots and plants in different sizes next to each other in your window. Or place two grey books in different sizes on top of each other, and then finish the still life off with a dark scented candle. Or try putting a bigger painting on top of a sideboard, then a smaller painting slightly in front of the first one, and finally a nice home fragrance somewhere in the middle. Those are just some examples, so make sure to play around with your accessories to find out what works best in your home.
Curate your own gallery wall as a home decoration
Another easy way to really nail your home decoration is to create a gallery wall. By using different pictures, paintings, posters, and wall art you can create something that is unique. To make sure you get a calm and unified impression, try using frames in the same color, or pictures that follow a certain color scheme. And if you’re uncertain about which frames to put where, here’s a trick that’ll save your wall from unnecessary holes. Cut out paper squares in the same sizes as your frames and place them together on the floor. Stand on a chair to get a better perspective of what works best. Move the squares around until you get a result that sparks joy.
But remember, decorations and home accessories should be fun. So interior tips and tricks aside, rules are made to be broken. Do as you please and dare to go bananas!
