Designing your new home or redoing an old home to give it new life can be challenging, especially for people who do not know a thing about interior design.
Luckily, there are a lot of ways that you can add visual interest to your entire house. For inspiration, you can create a mood board (or, more specifically, a Pinterest board) to achieve a cohesive Instagram aesthetic.
Whether you turn towards wall art, use natural light to your advantage, or build your design aesthetic around something already in your house, like your cast iron radiators - we have some ideas for you to create a beautiful, modern home.
Plants and greenery create balance in any room and can give your house a welcoming vibe.
A great example of bringing nature indoors is placing small succulents on bookshelves or a large vase of cut flowers on the coffee table.
Apart from delivering the perfect Instagram aesthetic, plants also clean the air in your home and produce fresh oxygen.
Keeping it simple will be a game-changer if you live in a small apartment. Adding stylish shelves to help you stay organised is a great idea and will open up limited floor space.
Stick to minimalistic design ideas (creating a mood board to inspire you is a great idea) and incorporate pieces that add value to your rooms.
There are plenty of tips and tricks to make a small space look larger.
You can add mirrors in various rooms to create cohesion throughout the house and give rooms a larger appearance.
Suppose you do not have a lot of space for decor. In that case, you can use one wall as a gallery wall by painting it a different colour and adding hanging plants, photos or artwork (consider paid commissions by your favourite artist for a unique look) on this one wall only.
Lighting can complete the aesthetic of any room. For example, fairy lights in the bedroom or a large statement chandelier in the living room will make a difference to an otherwise standard room.
Mood lightings like table lamps, floor lamps, or wall sconces can contribute a lot to any room's overall look and feel.
Bright rooms are ultra-modern, so try to maximise sunlight in your home as much as possible!
Having a conversation starter in your house is a great way to compliment your overall aesthetic and style, and why not have that conversation be a piece of furniture?
A focal point such as a statement art piece or something more subtle and functional like a gorgeous dining table will help you design and decorate the room around it.
Your walls, furniture and decor should be pleasing and a colour you can live with long term. It may be tempting to go for bold, statement colours, but you might grow tired of it within a few days.
It is recommended by many interior designers that you opt for a neutral palette and then add pops of colour through artwork, rugs, cushions or a feature wall for a big impact.
Whether you go for a coffee table, a dining room table or a breakfast nook, having a place where people can sit down, unwind, and converse is key to a welcoming aesthetic.
A table that will be used daily should be easy to clean and practical, but you can decorate it with a beautiful centrepiece or a table runner. A centrepiece doesn't have to be expensive or fancy - you can simply use some candles or a fruit bowl as decor.
If you have aesthetically pleasing floors, there is no need to cover them or hide them. However, if your floors are not to your style, then rugs go a long way in achieving your dream aesthetic.
Neutral Coloured Rugs - are a quick and easy way to add warmth to a room.
Patterned Rugs - can add colour and texture to an otherwise dull space.
They can be used whatever the aesthetic!
