I am all excited about home renovations, even when it comes to some small changes in a home decor. As a woman, I want my house to be both fortress and a cozy corner. I believe that home decor is like a separate art in the 21st century and is estimated not only from the technical but also from the “psychological” point of view. No matter how your home interior looks, it can determine the person’s mood and inner comfort.
Your family life will never be boring if once in a while your home decor will be supplemented with at least several new cute things. Besides, it’s not even necessary to splurge your money for expensive designers’ furniture. It’s all about small things. Many of them are homemade and do not require a lot of craft skills and materials.
Approach Your Home Decor With Imagination
So, what do we need for comfort? Small decorations, creative ideas, and a little imagination. This way we hope your home will be different – more comfortable and attracting special attention.
To do so, first, we need to supplement our house with some details. Remember: space shouldn’t be very uniform. We need light, backlight or a nice twilight that will divide rooms, separate the kitchen from the living room and even increase the space.
Color and Comfort
Now about the color scheme. If you are doing a “fall” style, it will fill your house with a family warmth, the colors of fire and a fireplace. How can you achieve this effect? Use as many warm shades as possible. Red, orange, yellow, purple, and different versions of beige – they perfectly match each other. Add some leaves, snags or twigs.
If you are recreating a snowy and beautiful winter, use a lot of white accents. Also, you can fill the scent of winter with dried mandarin crusts that you can carefully put in a pial.
Speaking of the spring atmosphere, it’s even easier – just add to your interior as much green as possible. Also, if you want to expand the house and fill it with a “spring freedom”, use mirrors.
Changing from spring to the summer is very easy. You can leave the green color and even increase the amount of one by playing with its shades. Besides, you can add some living (or artificial) summer flowers or flowers in pots and a saltwater aquarium. Don’t forget about letting more sun into your home and such small details as vegetable wreaths, vases, vases with fruit.
Also, some styles are predetermined with certain colors. For instance, the gothic home decor will have dark red, black and brown as the main color schemes and a lot of vintage elements. Meanwhile, a wholesale home decor requires a plenty of small details and elements creating an effect of a retail store.
There is nothing more charming than adding some homemade decor to your house. Take out your old stuff you don’t use anymore. Old jewelry, clothes, toys – all of them can be used as decorating elements.
It’s better when such handmade decorations will not just stand by themselves but also bring some functional benefits. For example, a towel rack can also look like a nice decor-flower or a twig.
5 Cheap Home Decor Ideas
Like I’ve said earlier, you don’t have to splurge on expensive furniture and decor elements. If you are looking for some fresh and modern home decor ideas for your housing, some of my favorites are right below.
1. Furniture made out of books/magazines
Do not rush to throw out old books or magazines, they can make a nice little table (and not only). Such element works perfectly for such styles as rustic home decor. And if you wish, you can always return to reading.
2. Very Simple Vases
Pay attention to the glass bottles after the party. Some of them have a very interesting shape. Use wall brackets or make a composition on the windowsill.
3. Instagram Wall
Print your favorite pictures from your Instagram profile. It’s not like somebody is going to like them but you will easily enjoy looking at them every day.
4. The old T-shirt turns into …
… a creative picture. Perhaps, you have your favorite old T-shirts from high school or college (or ones of your kids) that have become small but you don’t want to part with them. So why not turn these T-shirts into an element of decor? Such decor is not only creative but also keeps a lot of history.
5. Textile Decor
Finally, my most favorite decor. Home decor made of fabric with own hands gives you a lot of ideas and possibilities.
A great choice of techniques and methods means that every woman (and not only her) will find something of her own.
And what will it be, depends only on your skills and imagination. If you like to sew, then patchwork will be an excellent solution for making cozy decor elements for your home.
Using such technique, you can make:
- decorative pillows;
- covers for armchairs, couches or sofas;
- Various panels and pockets for storing all kinds of little things.
Decorate your house and your life will become brighter! Agree with that?
