Importance of a central piece
If you’re starting off with a blank canvas, the best way to proceed would be to think of a central piece per room. Every room in your house or condo can have a central piece. It can be a quirky piece of furniture or artwork. For example, you can buy a dressing table for your walk-in closet. A pretty vanity can make your closet very glamorous. Central pieces can also help determine the way you want to decorate the rest of your room. Choosing a central piece for every room can also help you decide whether you want a minimal aesthetic or you want more decorative items in your house.
Colour is key
Your aesthetic will not only be dominated by the furniture styles you choose, but also by the colour of the walls and ceiling. If you like having your decorative items really stand out, white or off-white is a great choice. Having off-white walls will give you the liberty to go as colorful as you want to with your bedsheet, couch, cushion covers, rugs, and curtains. The best way to decide on the colour of your ceiling and walls would be after you’ve chosen the main pieces of furniture for your apartment like the dining table, bed, sofa set, etc.
Small showpieces can add that quirky factor to your space. Showpieces can make your apartment look very personalized. You don’t have to spend a lot of money when it comes to showpieces. In fact, you don’t need to spend any money at all if you decide to make your show pieces. Dreamcatchers are perfect for your bedroom. If you’re a painter, you can simply frame your artwork and bedeck your living room.
Beautifying your house to make it feel homely is an exciting project! Do your research, fix your budget, and start decorating!
