So you’ve bought the house, organized all the big furniture, such as a sofa and dining table, but it still doesn’t feel like home? Oftentimes it’s the little things that bring a home to life. Small details do make big differences, and in interior design–these are what separate the memorable spaces from the forgettable ones. If you’re struggling to make your house feel cozy or add that personal touch here’s a few tips to help you add those decor finishing touches to make your house a home.
How To Make House A Home With Decor Finishing Touches:
There’s nothing better than seeing an abundance of cushions on a sofa or bed, they just looks so comfy and inviting! Cushions can be used to blend in with the background or as a statement feature, depending on your design tastes. Different fabrics can also add a different feel. Velvet cushions promote opulence and luxury while sequined cushions suggest a playful and fun atmosphere. Play around with varying styles and see what suits you best! Fresh accent pillow are a great way to liven your family room decor.
Candles can be both practical and ornamental. There’s nothing more comforting than the soft flicker of candle light in a dark room and these days many candles are packaged in stylish containers that make a fantastic feature just on their own. Group candles together for added ambiance and effect.
If there’s anything that makes a house feel more lived in it’s seeing some of your favorite memories dotted throughout. Photo frames are a cheap and effective way of adding the finishing touches to a home. Create a gallery feature by grouping pictures together on a sideboard or desktop. Silver frames are a classy addition to any home but if your budget won’t stretch that far opt for minimalist black frames for simple style.
Throw blankets are one of the most underrated additions to a room but they’re an invaluable accessory, especially in winter. Many people restrict throws to the lounge room but they’re equally as useful draped over the back of dining chairs or at the bottom of a bed. Throws are also a great opportunity to incorporate bold colors into what might be a neutral room. Get creative with clashing patterns and rich indulgent fabrics.
Every home should include fresh flowers! They’re a simple but beautiful way to freshen up a house and make it feel more homely. These days the trend is to separate stems into individual glasses and group together to create an eye catching feature. You don’t have to go to all that trouble though as a simple arrangement in a vase works just as effectively. If you don’t want to constantly keep buying cut flowers, opt for an indoor plant instead; just don’t forget to water it!
