That is why today, the team of Decorating Visita Casas; we bring you a lot of ideas for decoration that will make that space so empty you have, a warm corner and above all very yours.
Let’s do it!
Print Some of Your Charm to Your Home Has Never Been So Simple
I always say it and I will continue saying it (unless a radical change occurs in the way the houses are built); If you want to change the style in the decoration or simply make a radical change
Start on the walls!
And that’s where people tell me,
“But Nilda, I cannot demolish a whole wall”
When I refer to begin the redesign of the decoration by the walls; What I mean is in its colors, its motives, what it embraces and holds. Do not demolish the square wall and build an oval.
Next I’ll give you a set of great ideas to add a lot of glamor and charm to your home.
Best of all, these ideas are not a big expense!
My first tip is that you get inspired, visit trumblr, pinterest, magazines, books; And all entries dedicated to the interior design of Decorating Visita Casas.
If you have a printer, I really recommend that all that collection of information is stored in your own notebook decoration; You have no idea how many decorative spaces there are already created on the internet, all very beautiful, original and often economic.
Talent is left over but talent is born of inspiration; So if you want to create your own decoration or use the best concept of all, you really need to immerse yourself in the same world as expert designers.
Many people tell me that three neutral colors is very little, or that 2 neutral colors and one more “irreverent” is still very little.
You should understand that these base colors are used on most important furnitures to make them look beautiful; not because they are functional they have to stop being decorative.
After you’ve completed that step and you already have a solid foundation, then you could add two more colors. These two colors can be used in cushions, paintings, decoration and accessories; and on any other element that gives a little of light to your house but, if at any point you get tired of them; you can eliminate them.
You will not regret their absence or affect the functionality of the house or will unbalance the decoration
I think of all the points I will address here, this is the most crucial. A good planning is and will always be your best ally to add charm to your decor.
I personally work with Excel, but you can use applications like Numbers or Wunderlist.
The way to organize the things we apply at Decorating Visita Casas is:
- The name of the store
- Estimated budget
- The actual / final amount to be paid for the fixture or furniture
That way we compare the numbers of a site and move budget from one point to another; Always looking for those elements that will best mark the personality of the house.
Of course, despite your planning and your budget; never buy something if you don’t love it 100%.
The idea of ??making a budget is not reaching the store and buying many unnecessary or non-priority items; It’s not about setting a money limit really, it’s more about establishing what it is what you want and what you need.
Remember that whatever you buy, you will see it and possibly use it every day; It’s better to pay a little more for something you really like to pay less for something you do not really love.
“But this looks more like a scold than anything Nilda, help me choose lovely things for my house!”
Okay, okay. I just wanted to make clear all those guidelines before you went out and irresponsibly buy a lot of things to change the decor of your home.
Do you really want to know the definitive trick to give a return to the decoration of a part of your house and print it of charm?
Fabrics, textiles, fibers, textures.
Or whatever you prefer to call them. But the definitive secret to give charm to your home and not only that; To make an area of ??your home look totally different than it was before are: fabrics.
You have no idea what a set of cushions, a picture made in cloth, some new curtains or a carpet can do to the decoration.
Come on! Yes you know it, since we were little. Or did you forget how the dining room table changed completely when your mother put the tablecloth?
At the moment I am trying several things of the style of Japanese decoration, for that reason I have bought some individual tablecloths made of bamboo.
It’s amazing how my dining table that is black looks so different from what I’m used to when I place the Japanese decor!
I just need to put the individual tablecloths and my Ikebana as a centerpiece, so that the entire dining room changes to something different.
The fabrics applied to the floor, to the upholstery of the dining room chairs; Think about what place in your house would look different with a picture and there place a design made on canvas. From a Mayan calendar to a woven poncho, everything changes with the inclusion of textiles and radiates the traditional charm of the place from which it comes.
Beware of Overloading the Decor!
I’ll tell you another secret of interior design that will allow you to add even more charm and glamor to your home.
The empty space is also part of the decoration
In nature things do not come packed to the point of suffocating one another, even atoms are united and separated at the same time.
By going against the order of nature and cutting off the flow of energies, you ruin the decoration as beautiful as it is
Do the test. Using two separate furniture in your home creates an obstruction. Something that does not have to be very exaggerated but visible. If you do, you will understand what I am talking about.
Once you have defined your style (thanks to the inspiration obtained) you can then add decorative elements but, stop when your instinct tells you “maybe this is too much”
The decoration is an extension of your character, your way of being, your inner self. If you are a nice, kind and even glamorous person;
The decoration will reflect it
Do you know which element of the decoration people do not take much into account? To themselves. Always the image you have designed from the outside, the problem is that when you show it to most people you include yourself there. You understand it or not, you are part of the decoration, your clothes, your hairstyle, your way of walking.
For the decoration to look lovely, there should be harmony between your clothes and every decorative element you chose. Why you choosed that cup?
If you bought chairs, you should float on them when you sit down; To fill your home with charm, you must feel enchanted by being and within the decoration you created.
