Let your home interior design style evolve day-to-day, season-to-season. Be authentic and practice letting others in by entertaining and offering hospitality no matter what the state or style of your home is.  It’s time to let go of the pressure and expectations you’ve always felt so you can fully discover and embrace the beauty of the space where you are right now.  Learn to live with imperfection because contentment is far more important. Your guests will feel at ease and comfortable too!

Create the Mood with Your Interior Design Style

Know what mood you want to go for. Do you want a bright and cheery space, dark and moody, cozy and warm, or fresh and airy? Think about the textures you love, and how you like your furniture arranged. Consider the colors that ‘speak’ to you. In addition, lighting adds ambiance to a room so choose it wisely.  Look at inspirational photos and discover what you like about them. These things will guide you to your own special interior design style of how you want your home to look and feel.

De-clutter

While you may not always realize it when you’re in the midst of it, clutter can have a really negative impact on your life. It can often cause you to feel discontent and generally unhappy with your home. Decluttering can become an important way to practice self-care because it helps you take control of your home, your life, and your “stuff” to improve your overall well-being and contentment in your home. Creating a home that can give you the time, space, energy, and clarity to improve your health and happiness is well worth the effort it takes to de-clutter.

Create Thoughtful Use of Space

Shaping your home to fit the daily rhythm of your lifestyle can sometimes prove to be daunting.  At the heart of it, we see design as an opportunity to be resourceful and believe the rewards far outweigh the challenges.  While each home is unique, here is a brief list of how to create thoughtful use of space in your home.

  1. Start with natural light, try to let in as much of it as possible to keep the room feeling spacious and open.
  2.  Next, think vertically.  Maximize wall space by using vertical storage such as shelving or cabinets. In addition, consider wall hooks instead of a coat rack.
  3.  Leave space in the room for the eye to rest. Give your furniture space to breathe and be thoughtful about the items you incorporate. This will keep the room from looking chaotic. Use the right scale and size of furniture for the room. Using too large or too small of furniture will make your room feel uncomfortable.
Let your interior design style reflect you and your tastes.

Be You!

When deciding on an interior design style for your home remember to let it reflect you and your tastes! Learn to be comfortable in your home by being authentic to yourself and your style. Create the mood you want so it fits your lifestyle.

In addition, de-clutter to create a tranquil and peaceful environment for you and your guests. This is the ultimate in self-care. And lastly, design a style that fits you by creating thoughtful use of your space. One that will bring balance and harmony and will make you feel ‘at home’ in your home!

Happy Decorating!
