Most of us would love our homes to be the most gorgeous one on the block. There is something about outdoing our neighbors that gives us that little bit of extra satisfaction in life! But if you want to continue having a fabulous home that you want to show off, change is essential. Styles and fashion come and go. To keep up with the latest trend, you need to update your look regularly. And now is the perfect time to consider changes in your home for the new season.
Start with the light in your room. Most of the light we use comes from the window. This can be angled and shaded with blinds. And you can frame the window with drapes or curtains. Voiles can soften the quality of the light that comes into the room. However, it may be a little flatter and less vibrant as it falls on your walls and furniture. They’re great for added privacy, though!
As the sun goes down, you’ll want to light your room in other ways. Candles create a soft and romantic light. Using scented candles can fill the room with gorgeous aromas too. If you are looking to replace your wall or ceiling lights, contemporary lighting is the way to go. There are some wonderful choices, offering you structure, dynamic shapes and interesting textures. Best of all, you can add LED bulbs to save you a fortune on your energy bill!
LED lighting is also very popular when it is used to create lighting effects. Hidden panel lighting can offer a colorful glow for your walls. You could even make them yourselves. Cascading fairy lights offer a sense of magic and nostalgia. They also offer a soft and sparkly light for the room. These can even be effective outdoors on your patio or balcony. In the kitchen, kickboard lights help create a truly modern feel to the room.
If you’re ready to add a fresh coat of paint to each room, why not consider a color palette? That way you can create complementing schemes that help make the whole house flow as you move from room to room. You can do the same with the flooring. Wooden flooring can help open up the house, and create a common theme throughout the home.
With good weather on the way, chances are you want to be entertaining in your garden or yard a lot more. Why not have the area landscaped? You could design a patio area that merges seamlessly with the interior as well as your green planting. It is wonderful to bring the outdoors in and create an extra room outside at the same time.
Decorating an entire house can take quite a few weekends, so pace yourself. Start with just one room. That way you can take the time to formulate your ideas and come up with some great designs. Creating a gorgeous home requires clever coordination of themes. Good furniture and great colors can be used to make your home as stylish as you like.
