Choosing the best designs for your interior space can be a tricky decision. Not to mention ensuring every element flows perfectly in a room, there are so many aspects to think about. This is why here at Blindzonline we’re sharing some top tips for styling your home.
1. Always accessorise
The easiest way to create a designer look is to add personality using home accessories, Build a collection of staple pieces, such as standout trinkets and vases that style nicely against your key colour palette for the room.
2. Be careful with colour
When it comes to colour, be mindful of the shades you use if you want to achieve that high-end look. If you like pink, add a pop of the colour here and there, just don’t paint the whole house with it ( unless you are looking for an Eclectic style.)
3. Consider your choices
Whether you’re completely renovating your home or just thinking about an update, it’s all about being careful and considering your choices, especially if you’re going it alone. This is why it’s important to ensure you carefully plan what your vision is for a room, order samples and materials, decide on a key theme and take your time. You want to enjoy the room and the last thing you want is to finish the room and not be happy with the finished product because you rushed ahead with your choices too quickly.
4. Treat yourself to luxury
Adding a touch of luxury to each room is key to getting that designer look. This can be done on any budget and it’s simply a case of incorporating key colours such as silver, gold, brass, copper, etc. This could be done with high-end mirrored furniture or simply a can of gold spray paint on existing products in your home that you could revamp and use in your new living room.
5. Brainstorm like it’s your job
Kick things off by making a mood board and brainstorming the colours, patterns, and textures you love. Then browse the beautiful room sets in glossy magazines, for some inspiration to pull it all together. It’s just like styling yourself for a big event – it’s important to get the individual pieces right while making sure they work as a team.
6. Find your balance
Good taste comes from having a knack at finding the perfect balance between too sterile and too cluttered. For me, a good room has the right balance between being clean-cut and streamlined, and having the right amount of accessories so it doesn’t look too busy.
7. Add a bit of you
Give yourself a calming, neutral canvas to work with, then inject small but noticeable snippets of your personality like some artwork, a family heirloom or an upcycled piece of furniture. If vinyl records are your thing then show those evocative covers off!
8. It’s not a race
Lastly, remember to take your time – don’t rush your decisions when it comes to styling your home. Let things evolve, there’s no need to finish things in record time.
