It’s a well-established fact that your home is an extension of your personality – the way you design it not only reflects your taste, but also your social standing.
However, finding the right décor pieces that match your personal preference may not be as easy as it seems. You need to go through numerous design options before you make the final decision.
To save your time and effort, we have compiled a list of must-have products to create different kind of styles that suit your lifestyle. So whether you like a splash of colours or believe in keeping things minimalistic; we have got you covered.
For the minimalist
Minimalist design primarily focuses on simplicity. It is therefore advisable to pick white linens for your bedroom and kitchen upholstery. Since pastel hues are à la mode at present, you can also opt for colours like dusty pink, lavender and powder blue. While light coloured linens are difficult to maintain, they can certainly add a touch of sophistication to your interiors.
Mirrors, if strategically positioned, can make your room appear bigger than it actually is. Instead of having small mirrors, invest in a large, human-size mirror and place it in the bedroom. If your room doesn’t have enough space, you can hang a frameless round mirror just above your bed.
For the bohemian
Accent cushions and rugs
Want to achieve that perfect boho look for a house? Well, it’s all about mixing bright colours with quirky patterns. This is why accent cushions and rugs will be a great addition to your interiors. The best part about boho style is that you don’t need to follow any rules; you can just mix and match as per your wish.
Indoor plants can add a touch of freshness to your bohemian-styled pad and you don’t need to spend a bomb on them. However, the way you keep them makes all the difference. Make sure to invest in a beautifully designed plant hanger that you can hang in the balcony or in the living room.
For the wanderer
Mankind has drawn inspiration from Mother Nature since the beginning. And, if you are someone who likes to spend a considerable time outdoors, you may want to incorporate nature-inspired elements into your décor. Wooden art pieces or wooden furniture should be your go-to option for creating a rustic vibe. You can also place natural objects such as pebbles, feathers, sea shells, pine cones and dried flowers on a table in your living room.
Remember the miniature Eiffel Tower you picked while your trip to Paris but never got a chance to show it off? Well, why don’t you dedicate a space to keep all your travel souvenirs together? From postcards to shot glasses, you can flaunt your vagabond lifestyle by making them a part of your décor.
Your home should be your comfort zone. Hence, you’d do well by carefully picking the products that you want for your home. Personal touches not only enhance the interior, but also speak volumes about your unique style.
