If you have an interest in art, you might already have some favourite paintings that you would like to see hanging on your walls. Searching for high-quality prints online and suitable frames to display your favourite artists’ work will brighten your rooms and offer a nice talking point about why you chose to display those particular prints. If you are not that knowledgeable about famous art, try picking up tasteful prints while travelling that will remind you of your holiday. This will also help add cultural interest to your home.
If you have the floor space, a well-placed statue can be a fantastic way to add that individual aesthetic most of us crave. Bronze statues come in all shapes and sizes and are ideal for adorning tables or creating a focal point for a hallway or garden. Alternatively, there are often some beautiful stone statues available at most garden centres.
A feature wall is a great, cost-effective way to transform a bland room to a quirky and interesting space to spend your time in. A feature wall can be easily achieved by selecting a contrasting colour for one wall in a room or plastering on some patterned wallpaper. Most wallpaper companies will be happy to send you sample pieces to help you experiment and find the right look for your home.
Adding a vase of flowers, a lush, green plant or a creeping vine is an easy way to make a room feel less sterile and more homely. Also, adding living plants can help oxygenate your home which will make it a more calming, pleasant and healthier place in which to spend your days in. In addition, many people also find the task of watering and tending to plants to be therapeutic and you can even choose to grow your own herbs or vegetables to use in the kitchen.
Lighting is a very important element to any home. Too often people rely solely on their main ceiling lights. But, having the option of other reading lamps, fairy lights, candles or fireplaces are a quick and easy way to make your home fee cosier. What’s more, allowing more shadows and softer lighting will mean you can create different moods which can be especially nice when entertaining guests.
These simple yet effective design changes can help you feel more relaxed and at home in your house. So whether you are looking for a quick way to make your bedroom feel more cosy or want to add interest to your living room, following some of these tips could make all the difference.
