Who wouldn’t want a couple pointers here and there on decorating from a designer? We would love to share some with you, so we have round up what we think are the 10 best decorating tips! Let us start by saying everyone should decorate to mirror their personality; therefore, these decorating tips might apply to multiple homeowners differently. Everyone can definitely play up each idea however they would like, though!
Don’t Follow Trends
A certain idea is a trend because it will come in and out of style, and sometimes, it’s a trend for only a second. It will be out of style before you even have time to use it in your decor. We suggest not going with the flow and following trends, but instead, sticking to classics that are simply timeless.
Always Keep It Changing
You don’t have to go above and beyond and completely re-do rooms all the time, but switch out some pillows or a throw, maybe even hang some different wall art. This way you never feel as though your decor is boring, and you actually will prevent yourself from getting that urge to completely re-do the room.
Hang ‘Em High
We’re sure you hear all the time to hang your window treatments high, but it’s actually really important and can make a huge difference to the overall look of a room. It makes the window appear taller, but make sure your take into account those extra inches when looking for the length of the curtain. You want them to go all the way down, either just barely touching the floor or puddling on the floor.
Have Some Investment Pieces
Invest where it matters most to you personally. These are the items that will last you the longest, so make sure you absolutely love them.
Look around and keep shopping until you find exactly what you’re looking for. It’s out there; you just have to search a little bit. Whether that means a pink velvet couch or a teal shag rug, trust us. It’s out there.
The Rule of Threes
It’s always a good idea to group decor items together in threes. This could mean you use three candles of different heights or three vases with size variety. Either way, keeping things grouped in threes brings about a balance that wouldn’t be there otherwise, and having balance in your decor invites positive energy into the home.
Hang Some Mirrors
Mirrors are very important to include when decorating, because they make a space look larger. They’re also great to use in a room with a bit of natural light, because they will reflect the natural light and spread it throughout the room.
Mix & Match
We mentioned in the beginning to decorate mirroring your personality. We think you should get fun and creative. Mix things up a bit. Your furniture doesn’t always have to match. You don’t always have to have all the same chairs at a dining room table. Play with some colors. Just don’t be afraid to mix things up a bit.
Bring In the Plants
Including greenery when decorating actually brings great feng shui. It welcomes positive vibes expressing growth and success. Plants purify the air around you and provide more oxygen. So not only are they great for your health, but they also really help pull a room together.
Rugs can really just complete a room or space. They expand the room making it appear larger, and they give you order to where everything should be placed. Rugs can also be used as the accent piece to a room without being over the top considering large furniture is on top of it.
We hope you have enjoyed our list of the best decorating tips and can incorporate them into your home decor with your personal style twist.
