There’s no greater feeling than home sweet home. That’s what they all say, right? How do you get that cozy vibe in a brand-new house? Check out these easy tips for interior design as you move in!
“Home is not a place, it’s a feeling.” – Unknown
When you walk in and you feel a certain way, you know you’ve done your job at creating a cozy sanctuary. It can be overwhelming to think of designing a whole house! Below you’ll find some practical tips to sprinkle throughout each room, making your house one step closer to being that home you’re longing for.
Let there be Light!
If you are blessed to have lots of natural light, let it seep through your home! There is so much good that comes from sunshine. It’s proven to not only brighten up your home but brighten up your day. If you don’t have lots of natural light, go shopping for some exotic lamps and fixtures. Nothing makes a statement like a chandelier or funky floor lamp!
Color your Heart Out
Pops of color here, pops of color there… Adding a hint of bright colors brings your personality throughout your home. It’s easy to get caught up in the neutrals, but try to think of your favorite color and get inspired to incorporate it in the living room pillows or dining room mug. A little hint of color goes a long way. If you’re unsure how to incorporate certain tones, take pictures of your current furniture and look at them while shopping. This will make you confident in that bold, red pillow you were eyeing!
Cherish your Memories
Nothing says home like pictures and heirlooms that have been passed down for generations upon generations! Bring those out of the boxes and start placing them through each room. Your great grandma’s glass china will be the perfect addition to the dining room, and those professional pictures of the family you got taken last summer will be the perfect touch on the hallway wall! The best way you can make a house a home is by sharing parts of you in it.
Plant your roots
Bring the greenery inside! There’s nothing more alive than fresh plants, literally. Not to mention, a plant can also serve as the extra pop of color you’re looking for. That’s multi-purposeful, gotta love that!
Put it on Display
If you have a favorite art piece or maybe you love a good antique frame, put it on display! Hanging the unique things that matter to you and catch your attention will make your home memorable. That’s what makes a house a home, isn’t it? Embrace your individuality!
We hope these tips inspire you to create a home that embodies your true style. There’s no “correct” way to designing the interior of your home. Your spin is the right way because it’s yours! Now, get to decorating!
