When it comes to decorating your home, it can be so easy to get caught up in all the latest style magazines and what they have on offer or in their displays.
However, you don’t want to be stuck with something that you only choose on impulse and then have to change it a few months later because you’ve grown sick of looking at it.
In this article, we will look at a few different ways you can easily decorate your home, and how to find the colours and styles that can keep it looking great all year round.
Use neutral colours
Different colours have different energies about them. For example, orange and yellow and even some shades of green are said to give more of an effect of summer, whereas darker shades of blue, dark green, and even red and certain shades of purple are typically going to feel more like winter colours. This doesn’t mean you have to change the colour scheme of your walls for every season, because many can be used and look great for both summer and winter. For example, if you really love the colour blue and want to decorate with this, then you could have your walls white or even an off-white or cream colour to keep it neutral, and then decorate around it. Or you could have a shade on the wall that’s not too overpowering and then use different accessories around it t.
Don’t overdo it on paint
If you choose to use colours on your walls, then try to avoid using colours on every single wall. It can really make a room seem much smaller than it is, and if you use really bold or bright colours, then you quickly get tired of looking at it after a while. Instead try going for one bold or neutral colour on the wall, and then accessorising with brighter colours around it, or have a look at what’s on offer at Direct Furniture Land to get some ideas for what styles would suit your room, and that won’t overwhelm the room too much in terms of colour and contrast.
Use natural lighting
Whenever you’re decorating a room, one of the main things that you have to consider is the lighting, and how much natural light the room gets. You can always look online for interior design tips on how to use lighting for the best effects, as this is really what sets off the overall tone and atmosphere of a room more than anything. Things like lamps and candles can also really help create a nice atmosphere at night or on darker days, but in the middle of summer, if you don’t have a room that has natural light or much natural light coming, then using brighter colours can really help with that, and give the room a feeling of being bigger and brighter than it is. While candles and lamps are great in winter, and can set a great atmosphere, the room itself needs natural light as much as possible.
