There are plenty of beautiful homes out there. Indeed, there are a lot of beautiful ideas for homes. Take a walk through a big box store, and you’ll see plenty of beautiful reproductions of home interiors. But here’s the thing: they’re not necessarily that interesting. They’re visually appealing, sure, but that can often be where the intrigue ends. So when it comes to your home, it’s not just about making the space look good. It’s about giving it character. After all, this is your space, your one spot on the map. You should make it feel unique and like your own. In this blog, we’ll look at some useful ways for making sure that this is the case.
Photographs on the Wall
Studies have shown that taking a trip down memory lane can help brighten our mood. And photographs on the wall are a great way to stroll down memory lane. But even if they didn’t have that purpose, it’d still be recommended, if only because it helps to bring your personality and history to your home. A lot of things will have happened to get you to this page — why not showcase the journey on the walls of your property?
You’ll have hobbies and interests just like everyone else. And when you tally up all of your interests, there’s probably no one else in the world who matches up perfectly. So why not look at representing these interests in your home? It can be something simple. For example, if you play the guitar, then you could have a guitar hanging on the wall. If you’re a mountain biker, then you could have the scene of your favorite route. This creates a home that is entirely your own — as someone as anyone walks in, they’ll know just who’s home they’re in.
There are things you’ll have in your house that you just need to have. They’re the appliances and infrastructure that helps to keep your home functioning at a high level. However, just because you need to have them, that doesn’t mean that you can’t find ways to make them interesting. One way to liven things up is by using decals. Take a look at the collection from Story Of Home, and you’ll find decals for your walls, cups, food appliances, and much more. It’s an easy way to make the essential aspects of your home more interesting.
You’ll likely buy a couch set for your living room, sets for your bedroom, matching table and chairs for your dining room, and so on. And that’s a good idea. But you can also make things slightly more interesting by adding a few one-off pieces to your property too. For example, could you add a vintage chair to your living room? The contrast between the chair and your more modern design will keep things engaging.
Ultimately, it’s all about thinking differently and finding ways to make your home feel unique and more fun. Because why not?
