When it comes to decorating or remodeling your home, you know when you’ve nailed it. How? Because at least for a good long time, you don’t get tired of the new look and feel. That’s the essence of true beauty.
How about your home? Is it lacking that certain “Wow!” factor you can’t wait to see or show others? If so, here are just a few ways to see your home in a new light – and love every minute of it.
Buy it up. A new light fixture, framed mirror, or a piece of artwork can quickly transform a room. But not just any artwork. Have a vintage photo restored and re-framed. Gather classic family photos and have a wall-hung montage custom made. Go to local craft shows and bring home the prized work of a local artisan. It all adds up, and yet with each item making its own clear statement.
Bring home nature. Add vitality and beauty to your space with a living gallery wall, whereby plant life becomes a work of art. Known as a vertical garden, there are many ways to create one, whether it’s hanging planters on a wall in a pre-determined pattern or hanging a flat panel of succulents and moss bordered with a picture frame.
Add some accessories. Even if you don’t have the budget for new furnishings, you can still give a tired sofa or chair new life with a plush throw or vibrant pillows. Add new curtain panels or an area rug or mix in some new decorative pieces on the mantle. Then, just sit back and enjoy.
Music in the air. Try hanging wind chimes on your deck or patio. There’s something so pleasant about hearing this sound drifting through an open window on a lazy summer afternoon. It can even relieve some of the stress you might feel as a storm approaches.
Repurpose on purpose. You may already have items in storage that can add charm, convenience, and pleasant memories throughout your home. Like your favorite seashells, an antique jewelry case, a captain’s chair with a history, or a hope chest waiting for a chance to be appreciated again, even if in a whole new way.
