Whether you are looking for pops of color or focused on the materials utilized in your home’s interior, the idea is to create a flow of style so that your décor and theme transition easily from one room of the house to the next. The key to doing this successfully is to create a plan that encapsulates every aspect of your goals from the very beginning, leaving nothing to chance.
Creating the perfect look for your home’s interior design isn’t just about selecting a contemporary trend that is currently gaining popularity with the heated enthusiasm sparked by YouTube videos or seasonal catalogs. It’s about the feeling that you get when you look at the room, knowing that its appearance embraces your inner spirit and personality in a way that is going to transcend the next five or even ten years with a distinctively stylish look that brings a twinkle to your eye and a lighthearted bounce to your step.
Finding the Heart and Soul of the Room
In order to capture the heart of the room, you need to first look at it objectively so that you can plan not only the layout of the furniture but also the colors, textures, and patterns. Assess the space that you have. Pinpoint problem areas so that you can find ways to optimize their presence.
Select a focal underpinning from which to build out the remaining elements of the room’s design. Choose something large, eye-catching, and distinctive enough to draw the human eye to it upon entrance into the room. Accent its colors, patterns, and textures through your other choices, pulling the room together in a kind of seamless manner that seems easy on the eyes.
Embrace the Room’s Natural Features
Each room in your home has different characteristics, such as flowing beams of sunlight, narrow doorways, high windows, built-in shelves or fireplace, and varying ceiling heights. Rather than attempting to hide what some people might call imperfections, embrace their presence and find ways to optimize them. Create a cozy appearance for darker rooms or a lively one for those basking in sunlight. An interior designer can assist you with any or all of this.
