Home Decorating Ideas for Every Room: House Decor Professional Tips
The change of the seasons is a special time for home decorator’s…and Fall decorating is a great way to cozy up your home for the colder months ahead. Fall decorating doesn’t have to be just about Thanksgiving, and it doesn’t have to be limited to the main room in the home. Here are some easy and inexpensive home decorating ideas to bring the glory of Autumn’s bounty and warmth throughout your entire home.
Rearrange The Furniture
Pull your furniture away from the walls. Try positioning it at intriguing angles. For example, a sofa arranged diagonally across a narrow living room will make the room look wider.
Paint A Wall
Paint one wall your favourite colour and make it the focal point. Hang interesting art on that wall and move a nice piece of furniture there. (Note: Make sure that the colour is one that is shared with several other objects and fabrics in the room.)
Bring In Plants
Greenery always adds a breath of fresh air to a room. If you don’t have a green thumb, try silk plants and trees. The quality has gotten so good that it’s hard to distinguish them from the real thing.
Lay an Area Rug
An area rug is a wonderful way of defining a conversation area. Try one that complements the room. Lay it at an angle beneath your coffee table.
Hang Pictures or Mirror
Hang pictures that reflect your personality. Try frames that are more ornate. When hanging a mirror, try and position it so that it reflects and nice view or an interesting architectural element.
Pull out your favourite collectibles. Show off your personality. Find a display area and group related objects together, in sets of three or five. Try and vary the shapes.
Add Decorative Pillows
The good news about decorative pillows is that they are an easy way to add textures and patterns to a room. Still better, they can be changed to jazz up a sofa or chair before your room is ready for a major makeover.
Lamps are probably the one thing in your home that will give others a clue that your room is outdated. Seek out new and fresh lamps that make a statement.
Add a Throw or Afghan
Similar to decorative pillows, throws and Afghans add texture to your furniture. They come in all kinds of natural and man made fabrics. Find a pattern and style that you like.
Clutter has a way of eliminating the desired mood and effect of any room. Find storage spaces for papers, toys, and other items that take from the personality of a room.
Simple, easy, and fun to do with the family! Fall is a great season to celebrate the simple things that make life special, including time spent in our homes with our loved ones.
