Interior design, much in the same way as fashions in clothing and accessories, should be a wonderful combination of the latest innovations from high-end and high-street designers alike and of course, your own personal creative preferences.
Decorate Your Headboard
You certainly don’t have to be an award-winning artist to be able to utilize your own creations within your interior design framework and even the smallest touch of artwork either painted by yourself, or else from a local and celebrated artist, can add a huge amount of drama and flair to any room.
For a slightly larger focal point, you could choose to change up your plain and unassuming headboard at the top of your bed into a beautifully Oriental style one in striking colors and tones.
Other ways to make your headboard in the master bedroom stand out include the following:
- A wraparound headboard in a plush fabric
- Using thick and textured wallpaper on your old headboard
- Tying in the colors on the headboard with the cushions on the bed
Be Daring with Your Flooring Choices
Often, when modernizing a particular space, or else entirely renovating a room, most, if not all of the time, the focus is placed on the soft furnishings and furniture, and you may well have decided more than once to keep the current flooring.
Now, unless you’re entirely in love with your current shade of carpet, why not turn the space into a statement one and research stone flooring at mystonefloor.com, which will not only add aesthetic beauty but also some warmth, too.
Utilize Shelf Space for Show, Not Storage
In your living room, or else if you’re lucky enough to have an office space, anywhere where there’s either already built-in or freestanding shelving units, it’s time to donate any books that you know you’re never going to read again and get out any sentimental documents and important paperwork into a fireproof folder.
Instead, transform your bookcase or shelving unit by arranging your souvenirs from foreign travels, family photo frames, and other unique ornaments and special items entirely personal to you, which will seamlessly incorporate your personality and personal life into your design framework.
Pay More Attention to the Fabrics You Choose
The fourth and final unique and certainly unexpected way to inject the patterns, colors, designs, and tones that you feel most connected to, while still maintaining a fashionable and clear interior design aesthetic, is to pay much more attention to the type, thickness, and texture of fabrics.
If you’re working on a particularly strict budget, then instead of investing in new items of furniture from a high-end supplier, instead choose the much more sustainable and indeed, cheaper, route and upcycle your older pieces.
This way, you can spend more money on drapes, cushions, and throws, as there’s absolutely no doubt that higher-end fabrics not only look much better but are also much more striking.
