You have finally unpacked everything in your new house, but it still feels empty. Whether you just moved into your Clagett rental property or you just bought your first home, there are some things you can do to make your house feel like a home. Let’s take a look at some ways you can decorate your property.
Choosing a Theme or Style
The first thing to do when picking a theme or style is to start with a base item. Wander around a home goods store and pick out one or two items you are drawn to. These items will help determine your theme and style. Your theme could be anything from nautical to travel and your style could be modern or Victorian depending on the items you use to decorate the room. Small touches around your house will make the space feel like your own.
Whether it is a picture gallery along a stairwell or a memento from a gift shop at the beach, bring back a souvenir from your travels and display them proudly. Everyone love the have something to remember a trip by, so why not show them off? Don’t push them under your bed or hide them in your attic. Put them on a shelf or use them in your everyday life to remember what that trip was like.
Do-it-yourself projects can be big fails if you try too hard. Start off slowly by adding designs to your furniture. Adding decals or staining a bench can add a homey and personalized touch to your new space. Don’t be intimidated by the aspect of DIY, start small and before you know it your entire house will be stained and customized!
Be Good at Letting Go
I know it is hard, but sometimes you have to let go of stuff to get new. If a piece of furniture or accessories doesn’t fit you anymore, change them. If your ultra-modern white couch clashes with your country style table, choose which style fits your home and lifestyle better and sell the other one at a yard sale or sell it to a friend for their home. Be open to change and good energy will definitely fill your home!
Remember that everything changes but that doesn’t mean they have to be bad. Use this blank space as a canvas for putting yourself on display and in no time you will be home!
