The next time you plan on decorating your home, you may need some help for your inspiration. You have probably scoured magazine pages looking for some ideas, but there are other ways to envision your dream home. These are just a few of them.
This is an obvious one, and we have some great ideas ourselves when it comes to home decor. However, don’t visit the usual websites, such as Pinterest for new ideas. Even if your budget is low, you can still visit the websites of luxury interior designers for inspiration. You may not be able to afford their services, but you can still pick up some ideas to work within your budget. Using any search engine, type in the room you are looking to decorate, and you are sure to find many places online to give you the inspiration you need.
You probably can’t afford an original Monet or Van Gogh, but if a particular painting takes your fancy, you can buy a print and use an attractive frame when hanging it on your wall. You might even want to take a room in your house and turn it into your own private art gallery. You can also take inspiration from the colours and designs in the paintings too. You could emulate them the next time you decorate a room, using the blues and greens of Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, as an example, or the yellow’s of Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers painting. From classical to modern art, there is sure to be a style you will fall in love with.
Stepping outside of your front door, take inspiration from the nature around you. There is a whole world out there, and you can take some of it back into your home. Think about the shades of green and blue you see, and add them to your walls and furniture. Collect anything you find, such as pine cones, sea shells, and colourful stones, and use them within your home. You could make a dried flower portrait for example, or a centrepiece made from pine cones. From a walk in the park to a visit to the seaside, there are sure to be ideas Mother Nature can offer you.
While we don’t recommend you snoop around your friend’s house for inspiration, you could still take a discreet look at the way they have decorated their property. You may see something that would suit your home, and you could politely steal their ideas. Of course, you may need to prepare yourself for an awkward conversation the next time they visit your home.
Not only can you find inspiration for your wardrobe, but the latest trends in fashion may also suit your decor. Look at the designs and colours that are trending, and consider how you can incorporate them into your home decoration.
We hope we have given you some good ideas for inspiration, but ultimately, your decor is down to your personal taste. Enjoy your home, whatever you decide to do with it.
