Because we know that decorating a home can be hard, we want to help you. If we could just follow a rule book, of course, it would be so much easier. But there aren’t any rules, which is either good or bad. It is so that there is no uncertainty or guesswork when you are designing something.
Here are some things that don’t work in home decor and how to avoid them.
- Fail: Matchy-Matchy
The good news is that there is a cheap way to solve this problem. You can change one thing at a time. Keep your bed and dresser, but buy some unique wooden nightstands from your local flea market, thrift store or Etsy shop. If you want to, you could also change the bed for a DIY padded headboard. Keep in mind that your space should look like a page from your own dream home, not a catalogue from a store.
- Fake plants failed
Start out small. The African Violets aren’t the only thing you can start with. You can also start with a smaller plant like a succulent or even a small tree. You can buy a small potted succulent or cactus at a greenhouse or at a farmers market near you. Taking care of and watering the plants is easy with no fuss. Getting an orchid could even be a good idea. After a month or two, when the flowers die off, cut off the bare stems and keep the potted plant that still has leaves on it. Still too much work? Pick up a bunch of flowers when you go to the grocery store next time. Put them in a vase and put them where you’ll see them every day. You might start to buy flowers for yourself, and you might start to do it more often. Nobody knows you better than you do.
- High Water Drapes didn’t work
Buy something new! Make them in a fabric you love, or in an easy, breezy linen blend that’s the right length. There are many designers who have a favourite pattern or colour. I think that not all of the things in a room should be the centre of attention. Some design elements should be there to help, not be the main focus. In my projects, window treatments are meant to disappear and make a space feel lighter, brighter, and bigger. This is how I work. Even if you’re on a tight budget, go neutral. Draw attention to the most expensive items in a room, even if they’re old and cool.
- The rug in the dining room didn’t work out well
Many homes now have a living room and dining room that are both open. This means that both areas are part of a larger space, not separate rooms. When the living room furniture is framed by a big rug, the space looks bigger, more modern, and cleaner. This is because the rug in the dining room isn’t there. It will also save you money.
- One Color Scheme Goes Wrong
Make sure that about half of the accents in your room are the same colour. Replace them with one or two colours that look good with your colour scheme. What kind of colours can you use? They might all match, or they could be different. neutrals don’t have to be dull. People like them because they make their space feel warm and cosy. Make your room more interesting if you are a fan of neutrals by adding different textures, soft patterns, and different shades of the same colour to it.
It’s also a good idea to buy your big furniture pieces in neutral colours. This is a good idea for people who get bored quickly or who aren’t brave enough to try new things. Having a neutral big piece makes it easy to change pillows and accessories, creating different moods and changing your home with the seasons.
