Interior design is always on the minds of many people the world over, especially as the new year has already come into the swing of things. The new year is always a great time to start thinking about what you want to do in terms of decorating or doing up your home in time for the coming spring and summer seasons. With so many ways you can change the look and feel of each room, you might wonder where you should start. Here are some key ways you can easily do up your home so you can enjoy a fresh space all year long!
One of the best ways to brighten and freshen a space is through the use of art. Floral art is always a popular choice and brings the fresh air of spring indoors, even when the temperature outside is cold and chilly. Art can come in all shapes, sizes and forms as well from floral arrangements, paintings, sculpture and various other crafts. Bring a space to life with a bold print by a famous artist such as Picasso or Van Gogh or have simple sculptures on end tables or along low separating walls.
Tapestries include things like cushions, throw blankets, various upholstered items, curtains and wall hangings. Tapestries are a great way to brighten any space and make it feel like new. You can repurpose an old chair by reupholstering it or by adding some fresh new cushions to it with a throw blanket over the back. Making your own cushion covers can be fairly straightforward and a lot of fun, but if you aren’t crafty in that way why not get a friend who can sew to make you some unique ones?
Painting the walls in a room is one of the best ways to fresh up the look and feel of any space. Choosing colours that are warm, vivid and calming are fantastic for bedrooms and bathrooms as well as living, dining and kitchen spaces too. Beiges with darker brown feature walls are great for living spaces, along with sage greens. Many people tend to do their bathrooms in blue, so why not go for a sea theme in the bathroom and follow suit?
So there you have a couple of great ways to freshen your space – whatever your budget and time availability.
