We want our homes to be a reflection of who we are individually and who we are as a family. This can feel tricky to accomplish sometimes. Here, we will look at a few easy ways to tell your story through your interior designs.
I’m Redesigning My Living Room: Where To Start
Redesigning a space is always more involved than simply placing furniture and hanging curtains. You want to know how to coordinate and communicate. When you understand how interior design can help tell your story, you can start to build your confidence as a decorator and build your pride in your beautiful space.
Consider how to use the space, the design aesthetic, and the right color palette. If you have a limited amount of space, then you will also want to consider effective ways to organize the space. Let’s look at a few ways you can start to tell your story through interior design.
If you are lucky enough to have access to family heirlooms, you should definitely incorporate them into your interior design plans. Even simple or rustic pieces can add a richness and interest level to your home.
Examples could include antique furniture, cookware, dinnerware, china, rugs, paintings, photos, and more.
If you do not have access to family heirlooms and you are working on a budget, you can still create an enviable space with creative DIY projects. DIY pieces bring your personality front and center to your home. Not only with the pieces be good for admiring, but each one is also a conversation starter as you share your experience in making it.
Today, YouTube has given us the information we need to complete just about any DIY project we can dream of. Refinishing furniture, upcycling old items, and reinventing discarded treasures can be accomplished with little background training.
Family Photo Micro Gallery
Another great way to showcase your special family is with a micro gallery. Micro galleries are fun, informal ways to display pictures in your home. The best part about using a micro gallery is that there is really no wrong way to do one. You can use different frames and colors to create a truly unique showcase. Featuring photos that follow your family through the years is a great way to share your story and make your space unique.
These work great in living rooms, entryways, or hallways.
Showcase Your Art
If you or your family members are creative and artistic, you can use those talents to create truly unique home décor. Paintings, sculptures and other creations add a lovely personal touch to your home decorations.
