Your Home Decor
Your home is a unique reflection of your style and personality. Your house is a sanctuary from the world, a place where you have fun with your family and friends, relax, unwind, and focus on the people and activities you love. The home decor in your house should tell your story. From furniture pieces to picture frames, lighting to window treatments; the decorative finishing touches you give to a room make a huge difference to its look and feel.
Every room can benefit from the individual style touch that you bring to furniture, furnishings and accessories. The sky's the limit - the fun thing about decor is you can go as cool, current, traditional or ornate as you like. In the bedroom, choose from soft and subtle area rugs, decorative throw pillows, and stunning art and figurines.
The living room gets a fresh new look with accent furniture, comfy chairs, candlesticks and sparkling mirrors. And the dining room is completed with elegant candlesticks, wall accents, and mood lighting. New window treatments breathe a breath of fresh life into any room. And you can always see the difference when you switch around your picture frames and wall accents.
Your home décor can welcome, inspire, create a cozy atmosphere and provide the perfect space for relaxation and fun. With a little imagination, your space is uniquely yours.
Home Décor for a Home Makeover
A fresh and stylish home makeover starts with your accessories. When you want to make a change in your home, look at the items you want to keep - the items that you love to look at and which have special meaning for you. Give away, sell or recycle anything you no longer like, is broken, or is simply cluttering up your home. After a clear-out you've now got more space to show off the accessories and decor you adore.
Your decor should be a reflection of what you love and care for. When shopping for new pieces, let your heart lead you and choose accessories that suit your look, whether that's rustic-style wall-hangings, or contemporary glass or metal vases for a more modern home. If you want to spend a little more, delicately carved cabinets, classic upholstered chairs, and sleek and simple ottomans make all the difference to the room, creating a space that welcomes and inspires.
Another great way to inject new life into your home is to decorate for a special occasion or even a new season. Of course, there are big holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas, but you can also create a festive look for Valentine's Day, freshen up for spring, or create a fall motif with the addition of a few well-chosen and eye-catching wall decorations, candles, or lanterns.
Practical and Functional Home Décor
Home décor can be functional as well as decorative and fun. In fact, in the busy family home it needs to have a purpose and it should make your life easier.
Take a look at cute and practical objects that help you keep clutter at bay – drawer and shelf units to store books, magazines, remote controls and DVDs in the living room; storage boxes for a cleaner and tidier kitchen; and wooden boxes to keep trinkets in the bedroom. Other home décor pieces are practical as well as beautiful, like the decorative signs that label children’s rooms or drawers, and the message boards and mirrors that give you something useful to look at on the wall.
And don’t forget how lighting can make a gorgeous yet functional difference in all the rooms of your home. Glowing accent lamps add depth and charm to a room while giving you the light you need to read or finish your craft projects.
