Do you fancy revamping your interiors?
Have you decided that it’s time to tackle a redecorating project?
Are you on the hunt for simple, effective strategies to refresh and update your decor?
If so, you’ve come to the right place!
As you might know I’m an award winning designer – who personally produces the style and look of all of my bestselling books and groundbreaking video courses and inspiring life quotes.
Well, I also love home design! I’ve already shared some of the home decorating tips I used to make our home here in New York feel cozy and fun – in this article here.
But you don’t have to do major home renovations to improve the comfort level and visual appeal of your home.
Here are some creative home decorating ideas to explore -which don’t take up too much time or cost too much money.
Have you fallen out of love with your lime green bathroom? Does your kitchen look dark or cramped? Do you fancy being a little bolder in the living room?
One of the best and simplest ways to freshen up your decor is to switch up your color palette.
Colors have an incredible aesthetic impact. And they can affect the feel and ambiance of a room.
When choosing colors for your living spaces and bedrooms, think about how you use the space.
Don’t be afraid to go beyond neutrals. Bright and bold colors are okay, as long as you find strategic ways to complement them with your trim, furniture, and decors. Try red, yellow, purple, or green hues! Be free to transform your dull corner and welcome good luck.
You can also add color by painting a signature wall. Put up some colorful artwork. Or you can use printed or patterned wallpaper. Another idea: Create open, bright spaces by replacing darker shades with crisp white or neutrals.
Have you had the same flooring for decades? Or did you move into a house where the floors aren’t really to your taste? Perhaps you should consider refreshing the look of your rooms with new flooring!
When you put in new flooring, you can alter the aesthetic, introduce new trends and themes and increase durability and functionality.
You can also channel retro and vintage trends or opt for cool, contemporary styles.
If you don’t fancy overseeing a major renovation or redecorating operation, you can simply invest in new accessories!
When you decorate a room with simple, affordable accessories, you create a hassle-free way to breathe new life into dated or dull interiors.
You should try experimenting with new wall art and decorative items like candle holders, plant pots and vases and framed prints. Each of these will help you to inject your style and personality into your home.
Best of all, you can try out new trends like build you own neon sign, and give your home a fresh new look without blowing the budget.
Try to stick to natural materials and bring the outside in with…
Opt for plush furry or faux furry fabrics and decadent touches like feathers and velvet. Try black velvet cushions for an elegant contemporary style living room without spending that much. They are perfect for your sofa and even in your master bedroom couch. Define genuine beauty with these timeless accessories.
If you love a boutique hotel vibe, use statement pieces! For example, try eye-catching chairs or a patterned rug, to channel a retro vibe.
Try these simple strategies. Start by exploring Pinterest – then creating your own Pinterest board. Choose one change at time.
After you’ve chosen one of these things, explore different choices – at different price levels. And try to have fun while you’re doing it!
Wishing you great success at creating a brand new feeling and beautiful interior!
