Where to Find Home Decor Inspiration
It’s not enough just to own a home; you have to make it look good. But sometimes, there’s a problem – home decor styling doesn’t come naturally to the homeowner. But here’s a secret: it doesn’t come naturally to most people. There are only a tiny fraction of people who are naturally good at putting rooms together, and most of those people do it professionally. The rest of us have to get our ideas from elsewhere. There’s nothing with this whatsoever; it’s a sharing world after all! If you’re feeling a bit clueless when it comes to your decor, take a read of our tips on where to get inspiration below. Your home will look professionally arranged in no time.
Stealing From Your Friends
They say that everyone is an average of the five people they spend with most. Why not extend this to our homes? Moving forward, our homes will be the average of the five other homes we spend the most time in. If you’ve noticed that one of your friends or family members is especially talented at putting their home together, then why not ask for some tips, and incorporate their ideas into your own home? They’ll be happy to help; indeed, they’ll be pleased that you ask (though they might pipe up with “I gave [name] this idea” whenever they’re at your home with guests).
The World Wide Web
Who can remember a time before the internet? It must have a dark, uncreative time…we imagine! Today, the world wide web is creating an explosion of ideas in all aspects of life, including home decor. You no longer have to wait to see what the professionals are coming up with for the home; the internet is fuelling DIY projects, so anyone with the right tools and a bit of patience can improve their property on their own watch, just by watching what others have done. By seeing what people all over the world are doing, you’ll be able to establish a clear view of how you want your home to look.
On Your Travels
If you often stay in plush hotels, then you’ll know what they always just get things right. That’s the only way to put it. The lighting is perfect, the decorations are stylish and subtle, every inch seems to be perfect. While you won’t be able to create a home that’s akin to a luxury hotel all the way through, you can add elements here and there, in particular, the lighting. The next time you’re on your travels, make a note of how they’re creating their aesthetic, and see if you can replicate it at home.
You’ll get plenty of good ideas from other people, but what about your own mind? Look within, and try to come up with something that is in keeping with your personality. It’s your home, after all, so put your own spin on it. You might just find that you become a home decor inspiration yourself in the years to come, and that people copy your style!
