Whether you have a new home that you are just itching to make your own, or you are planning on refurbishing and restyling where you are, home décor is such as personal choice and can make a world of difference to quality of living.
However, it can be easy to fall into the trap of going along with home décor that is trending on Pinterest over something that feels a little more you.
Personalizing your home décor is in for 2023, and having those little touches that are uniquely yours cannot be beaten for that ‘at home’ feeling.
This piece is going to take a look at how you can add that personalized touch to your home to make it truly your own.
Let’s get into it.
What Style(s) Speak to You?
Having an idea of where to start when it comes to your home décor can give you a good base. Think about what styles you enjoy and like being around. You do not have to limit yourself to one, and creating a vision board or putting together some images of what inspires you can help you mix and match to create something that feels uniquely you.
This is not the be-all and end-all of personalizing your home décor, but it definitely helps give someone a starting place so they can whittle out what they are not so interested in and keep what makes them feel good.
Moments of Your Life
The little mementos of life can really make a house a home. Whether this is pictures that your children, niece, or nephews have drawn for you; Notes that are left around the house by your loved one; Cheap souvenirs brought from various trips away; Or creating something special out of personal items such as a t-shirt quilt made up of old, favorite t-shirts. Having these moments of your life scattered around your home is perhaps the ultimate move for creating personality in your home and can help construct a place that is uniquely your own.
Art is another excellent means of personalizing your home décor. There is so much variety out there that it would be impossible for you not to find something you love or feel represents you in the home. Whether you want oil painting portraits of still life, scenic photographs of the beach, or handmade clay sculptures, there will be many things out there that you will fall in love with that will complete the rooms in your house.
If you are yet to come across something you like the look of or something that feels right to you, then expose yourself to something new. A new place, a new book, a new artist, a new culture – you can find art inspiration anywhere and then bring it back with you to personalize your space. These are just a couple of ways in which you can personalize your home décor to make it more you! After all, your home is where you go to relax and spend time, so it should reflect your personality and interests.
