Variety is the spice of life. And while that might be a trite, corny saying, that doesn’t diminish the truth it conveys. Redecorating (or going one step further and remodeling) is potentially expensive, exhausting, and extremely tedious. Relieve that boredom without feeling like you’re literally watching paint dry. We’ve got some room design advice that should perk up your interior design right away!
Pick a Color You Like
Which colors do you absolutely adore? You can use them as a good starting point for your brand new room design. Accent colors can pep the room up right away. Even so, you might want to push the limits a bit more than that. Be selective about the bolder colors you use; too many colors will end up clashing and overwhelming the eye. That’s never fun to deal with or look at, so don’t inflict that on yourself! Neutral rooms are basically empty canvases. What else shall you do?
Toss In New Textiles
Beyond painting the walls and matching them with the floors, there are other elements you should consider. For instance, are the textiles in the room looking outdated or downright tacky? Time to throw them out and rejuvenate your space with some newer ones instead. Throw cushions are the perfect solution if you don’t go overboard with how many there are. Another idea is to rethink the window treatments. Your old curtains might be the next ones to be voted off of the island. In this case, less is more; choose plain patterns instead of exuberant ones. Accent colors and neutral sheers also make a considerable difference. Use a window valance to hide the drapery’s hardware.
Follow Your Nose with Fun Scents
Did you know that smells leave the strongest impressions? That is why some of your fondest memories probably have to do with a scent that you enjoy. Your mother’s perfume, or freshly steamed rice, for instance. With that in mind, don’t hesitate to follow your nose! A key part of interior design is engaging all of the senses. Candles and flowers are the quickest and easiest ways to spruce up a room that’s feeling musty and stale. Are you worried about your black thumb? Collect some silk flowers instead of their natural counterparts!
