The way your home makes you feel is more important than you think. It’s your safe space, the place where you unwind and where you can be at ease and completely yourself. Naturally, you want that space to feel comfortable and inviting.
Since we’re all unique, this can mean something different for everyone, but there are still a few general rules you can use to make your living space a place you really want to be, share with others, and enjoy on a day-to-day basis.
Keep reading to learn which items in your home you should be focusing on to achieve an elevated look and feel.
The power of a good rug cannot be understated. Rugs bring warmth, comfort, texture, color, and personality to any space, and they’ll also protect your gorgeous hardwood floors from too much damage.
Picking a big, fuzzy, luxurious rug can make your living space feel more high-end, while a round, rattan piece can bring a calming and natural vibe to the room. Whatever your style might be, a rug will complete the look and give you a sense of warmth. However, make sure that you choose the right rug for your room to avoid clashes in size or style.
It’s common sense that having décor in your room contributes to the style and makes the space feel like home.
However, not enough people pay attention to the amount and type of décor they use in a space.
If not used correctly, décor can become cluttered and make your living space look more like a messy dumping ground than a well-decorated area of your home. Pick your décor wisely and ensure that everything you display has a purpose and fits the style. Candles, a luxury clock on the wall, framed photographs, vases, coffee table books, etc., are all good examples, but be sure not to overdo it.
The right curtains will not only block out the light but can even add a touch of luxury to your space. High curtains will help make your living space look bigger than it actually is, and choosing a high-quality material will give a polished overall look.
Neutral curtains are always a safe bet, but opting for a pop of color might be more your style and add some life to your space. Pick what feels right to you, and remember to invest in some stylish tiebacks to match!
Finally, keep in mind that having bare walls is one of the easiest ways to let your space feel unfinished and impersonal.
Family photos on the wall will bring your personality, memories, and a touch of love into the room, while glass framed wall art can look extra modern and minimalist.
Depending on the look you’re going for, you could combine both styles or even create a gallery wall to display a collection of the art you love and the photos that indicate who you are and who you love.
