My favourite thing about decorating an interior space is personalising it to our family needs and personalities. I think that someone's home is a reflection of themselves and should be somewhere that they feel comfortable in and be able to relax. Personalising a space shouldn't be difficult, as long as you think of a theme and stick to it, only buying things that you really love to fill the space. Read on if you want to get some tips on how to personalise a space.
CREATE A MOOD BOARD
The first thing to do is make a plan. Create a mood board with cut outs from magazines and print outs from websites, wallpaper samples and paint and fabric swatches. Get inspiration from visual online sources such as Pinterest and Instagram, but don't be tempted by a trend if it isn't something that reflects your personality.
Choosing the right flooring is a great way to personalise a space as it is one of the first things you see that will make an impact. When looking into this topic it became clear that a bespoke rug is the always the best choice when trying to make your space unique. Off the shelf, generic rugs are all well and good, but they will always struggle to truly represent your character and will never fit into a space like a made-to-measure piece would.
Another perfect way to really reflect your personality in an indoor space is in the colour theme of your room. Bright colours reflect outgoing and cheerful personalities and more muted colours suit more reserved people. Remember you can have different themes and colour schemes for different areas of your home. You might want a more relaxing colour theme in the bedroom and have a vibrant bright kitchen. Take a look at some colour charts online to see if you are drawn to a particular colour.
One of the best ways to personalise a space on a budget is by adding artwork to the walls. This doesn't have to be expensive, it could be posters or postcards or something you have created yourself. Artwork can be a great focal point for a space and provide a real talking point for any guests who visit.
People often forget that the furniture in a space can tell a story of it's own. Do you prefer clean, modern and practical furniture from high street shops or do you prefer vintage pieces sourced from antique yards? You might love DIY and upcycling old furniture you find on eBay or Facebook marketplace can be a great way of injecting personality into a space. Paint it with chalk paint in the colour of your choice and change the hardware to suit.
Great lighting can make all the difference to a room and can really help to set it's mood. Choose bright LED overhead lighting if you have a dark space that you want to brighten up and choose soft lamps and low wattage bulbs if you are wanting to create a cosy area such as a reading corner or a cosy bedroom.
