Why Home Décor is important?

Spread the love

When you first move into a new house, it’s only natural to want to put your personal stamp on the space — after all, unless you built your dream home, it’s likely that the finishes, fixtures and paint colors should be of your choice.

Why does this process matter? The way we decorate our home is our opportunity to create the kind of space we enjoy, and it says a lot about our personality. Are you an extrovert, arranging as many chairs as you can so you can bring all your people together or an introvert designing the perfect reading nook? Everything from your choice of colors to the number of throw pillows you put on the sofa is an opportunity to create an environment where you and your loved ones will thrive and to make your mark. You can create a calming space with simple color schemes, a cozy and inviting home with warm tomes, or a bright and lively entertaining area with bold patterns.

Beyond expressing ourselves, home décor can affect us physically. Do you light a scented candle while working in your home office to set the mood for a productive day or keep a lavender scented sachet with your sheets so that they smell like bedtime?

Home décor is important because it can affect everything from our self-perception to our confidence and productivity. So, go ahead, buy that new throw pillow or piece of art if it makes you happy. You are not treating yourself; you are creating an environment in which you can be the best version of yourself!

Answer that eternal question – Who Are You?

Décor is mostly about what you do not buy than what you do. When the market is filled with choices then the most difficult part is figuring out what you should not go with, which trends you must avoid, what objects will not work in the space etc.

To really get to that point, we must figure out who we are. What I mean is, what is your design personality? The most accessible form of design in all our lives is the clothes on our back and the shoes on our feet.

Start with a Self Q&A

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we rarely (if ever) take time to consider what truly makes us tick. Most of us just are not connected to what inspires us, what lights us up, or what makes us feel peaceful and happy in our day to day.

When designing a personalized space, begin by asking yourself a few simple questions.

Ways to Personalize your House

  • Collection. Collect things that you love, that are authentic for you, and your house becomes your story.
  • Paint the front door. It is far less commitment than painting the exterior and has more bang for the buck.
  • Hang personal photos. Getting a few favorite photos up on the wall is one of the quickest and easiest ways to make a new place feel like home, so do not put it off.
  • Get Some Good Natural Vibes. Incorporating items that add a jolt of positive energy to your space will make you feel awesome when you are in it. It is like creating your own good-vibes ecosystem.
  • Paint a wall or two. Picking colors for your whole house can be a daunting prospect. Save yourself some trouble and just commit to painting an accent wall or two now. Getting color on the walls will make your place feel more like you and can help determine the rest of your home’s palette.
  • Make Your Own Feature Wall. There is no better way to feel happy and inspired in a space than to fill your walls with things that bring you joy. Displaying photos, prints, art and hanging items that tell your story is a wonderful way to personalize your space.
  • Buy fresh flowers. A bouquet of freshly cut flowers, whether from the florist or your backyard, can instantly make any room feel friendlier.
  • Wallpaper the powder room. A fun statement wallpaper can really put your stamp on the powder room or bath. A less-used space like this is a great place to experiment with bold patterns and color.
  • Roll out a fluffy rug. Even if you generally prefer bare floors, having at least one space with a sink-your-toes-in squishy rug makes a house feel ultra-comfortable.
  • Fix the right light Swapping a stylish light, you love for a boring or outdated one can make a room feel new.
  • Give stairs a special treatment. Paint them a crisp white, then add shades of a single color to the treads; or add numbers, words, or wallpaper to the risers. If you have a carpeted staircase, update it with a fresh runner.
  • Upgrade window treatments. Whether you go for tailored Roman blinds or textured bamboo, simple roller shades or a layered look with curtains, having a window treatment you love (and that works) is a decorating detail that can make a space feel more polished. When selecting window treatments, choose the same liner fabric on all windows for a consistent look from the street.
  • Hang a piece of art. One (or more) great piece of artwork can create a focal point and enliven an entire room. It does not need to be a priceless item, as long as it speaks to you.
  • Tuck plants into unexpected spaces. Plants add personality and color, freshen the air — and they look great in any room. Large houseplants and potted trees are wonderful, but also try placing little pots of cactuses, succulents, or ferns among the bottles on a bar cart, on the bathroom sink or on open shelving in the kitchen.
  • Create a special spot for yourself. Give yourself a secret hideaway or comfy area to curl up with your favorite pastime.
  • Customize the storage. Having the right sort of storage, in the right place, is key: Get that right, and daily life suddenly becomes much easier. Take the time to plan out where you need shelving or cabinetry and outfit your closets with storage systems to make the most of your space.
  • Offer cozy comforts. A throw to snuggle under, a tea tray ready for last-minute guests, candles, fresh flowers, and plenty of lamps — these little things are often what make a house feel like a comfortable, welcoming home.

Before you head to any store, look around the wardrobe. Yes, it absolutely has a connection with what your house may look like. All our choices are connected. Obviously, because we are doing the choosing. The way we dress, what sort of foods we like, the colors we prefer… all these choices point in the direction of the kind of design we like. So, look around your wardrobe, and write down a few key highlights from weekend wardrobe (like, ethnic, black, colorful, jeans etc.), and you’ll have made the first moves in the direction of figuring out what sort of design you prefer.

Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.
