Pops of Colour

Summer is a rainbow of colour so, you will not struggle to find simple pieces that you can add to your bedroom or living room. Bring in that colour through a mix of new throw pillows, vases, and wall prints in your favourite summer colour.

Bohemian Accent Rug

Bohemian style decor is full of colours, patterns, and fun textures just what is needed for the summer season. So, start at your feet with a multi-coloured rug. That just exudes that vibe of well-travelled, relaxed and so boho.

Blooming Floral Walls

Peel-and-stick wallpaper is a simple way to turn a blank wall into a chic upgrade. This is a great way to wake-up that blank accent wall in the entryway, living room, bedroom or even your bathroom.

Bright Lights

Bring light into your spaces with a bold coloured light fixture or table lamps and to make that colour pop even more add decor accents in a similar hue as your chosen colour.

Dried Floral Delights

A fresh floral centrepiece is always stunning but with dried flowers enjoying their moment in the spotlight, why not switch out the fresh bouquet for a bunch of dried flowers. They will add not just some colour but also texture to your space.

Coastal Accents

For an easy, summer-ready fix, mix in patterned pillows in tropical prints for added colour. For added texture and depth add pieces in rattan, robe and some greenery like a Fiddle-leaf fern or any of your favourite plants to set it off nicely.

Using Interior Design To Reflect Personal Style

How we decorate our homes has a great impact on how we feel spending time there. It is now widely believed that our home decor can subconsciously affect our mood as well as our mental wellbeing. Hence, interior design is something we should carefully think through.

How To Use Interior Design To Reflect Your Personal Style resultToa Heftiba. Unsplash

The line between fashion and interior design is becoming blurred so if you have a favorite fashion designer, chances are that they already have a home line you can use to decorate your house or flat. This is great news! However, the most important thing about interior design is that we feel pleasant and at peace in our home environment.

For this to be achieved, our home décor must reflect our personal style and fashion tastes. Only then will we be able to create a true oasis for ourselves, a sanctuary in these trying times amidst the pandemic.

In this guide, we will show you how to use interior design to reflect your personal style.

Think About Your Lifestyle

Think About Your Lifestyle resultFlaunter. Unsplash

Before you start throwing out your furniture and replacing it with new items, take a moment to think about your lifestyle in general. Are you a person who revels in elegance and stylish items that look like they came out of a magazine? Do you love wearing couture and designer clothing and turning heads at parties, or are you more the type for joggers and sweatpants of generic brands?

It may sound silly, but you should consider this in order to create a home that makes you feel comfortable and peaceful. If you do spend most of the time with your hair made up in a casual bun and your joggers on, then perhaps you wouldn’t feel comfortable and at home in an elegantly decorated flat with expensive, yet uncomfortable furniture, and vice versa.

If you enjoy wearing fancy attire and you prefer elegant, white sofas, maybe you wouldn’t quite feel like you’re at home in a casually furnished, farmhouse-style home.

Comfort Or Style

When it comes to choosing an outfit, do you go for comfort or style? Are you someone who follows the latest fashion trends? Someone who never wears high heels and even if you do, you can’t wait to go home and change into your favorite trainers?

You should approach interior design in the same way by asking yourself a few questions. Do you prefer soft or bold features? Cozy boho chic or the simple, clean Scandinavian style? Or are you more into bare bricks of the industrial style?

This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve both comfort and stylishness if you allow your personality and your tastes to guide you. For example, if comfort prevails in your book - but you also want a dash of style in your bedroom, you can pick one of the numerous wooden bedroom furniture sets that provide both. They’re cozy and comfortable but also timeless, hence, suitable for every taste.

Another great thing about wood is that it can fit into any kind of home décor so you can express your creativity and complement your bedroom with minimalist, mid-century modern, French Country, or traditional style details to create a space that truly reflects your style.

Bold Colour Or Neutral Palettes

White, beige, and grey flats look stunning in magazines, however, is it really for you? If you’re the type who prefer bold colours such as purple, red, green, your interior design should reflect that. If you surround yourself with the colours that you usually love wearing, you’ll be much more relaxed at home.

Maybe you want to add some feminine accent to your home such as pink details in the form of art, flowers, etc. Some pink or velvet-coloured cushions would be an excellent addition too.  On the other hand, if you usually avoid flashy hues and always pick the “sure thing” when it comes to your outfits, honour your taste and pick colours that feel natural to you.

Creativity Or Simplicity

Maybe you’re the type of person who can make any ordinary outfit unique by adding some interesting details such as jewellery or accessories. Or you might be someone who feels best in a plain simple outfit such as a classic white T-shirt and black trousers, no accessories.

If you enjoy simple, minimalist décor, you shouldn’t force yourself to add home accessories such as bohemian-style rugs or materials such as fur and leather. Remember that the focus is on creating a home that reflects your personality and taste. On the other hand, if you find immense joy in collecting rare, handmade pieces, souvenirs, and combining various textures, you should think of your home as a white canvas ready to be painted.

Conclusion

With the help of the internet and social media platforms, figuring out your personal style and incorporating it into your interior design is not difficult. Create a board on Pinterest, write down a list of your priorities, and consider your fashion style. With these tips, you’ll easily create a home that screams YOU.
