You’ve undoubtedly heard a lot about minimalism in the last several years, about how it’s the “in thing” and that everyone should get rid of the majority of their stuff to be fashionable. Many others, on the other hand, are opposed to minimalism.
It doesn’t matter if you name it anti-minimalism or maximalism; what counts is that you stay loyal to yourself and express yourself via your decor rather than following trends!
This article is for you if you enjoy clashing colours and displaying numerous fascinating items in your house but are feeling a little uninspired. Take a peek at a handful of our ideas to bring out the best in your home.
1. Consider a gallery wall
Why not start by putting up a gallery wall? Choose a wall that is free of windows and doors and hang your favorite photos, artwork, and quotes on it. By mixing and matching frames and photos of various sizes, you can achieve a truly diverse design.
However, you might wish to tie them together in some manner, perhaps by choosing a color that appears in all of them. Before you start drilling holes in your wall, lay out your parts on the floor to make sure they fit properly.
2. Coordinate scatter cushions and rugs
Layering cushions and rugs is a fantastic means of bringing some extra ‘pizzazz’ to your bedroom. Your cushions don’t have to be all the same colour. Again, it’s all about striking a balance and uniting with one item, but you can do whatever you want!
A bright rug can quickly brighten a room, and you can overlay them if you want to. If you’re not sure what colours to use, check out these decor colour trends in the bedroom for some inspiration and pairings you might not have thought about before!
3. Find a place for every ornament
You’ve undoubtedly taken mementos home from your travels, or perhaps people you care about have bought them for you. Find a way to showcase them. You might be able to display them on a feature wall or just arrange a few on your mantle.
They’ll pique people’s curiosity and provide you the opportunity to tell a tale in your living room when you invite guests over.
4. Build a stunning bookshelf
Books are a fantastic addition to any space. If you’re feeling brave, why not build a bookshelf tailored to the space in your home? For example, if you have spaces either side of a chimney breast, building a bookshelf not only maximises the space but also allows you to show off your collection with pride.
If you don’t have a bookshelf, put them on your coffee table. They provide the impression of being lived in, and they can reveal a lot about your personality.
5. Focus on symmetry
Finally, you must be eclectic while still paying attention to your design. You don’t want your decor to look carelessly thrown together, so find the right balance. When the various things and patterns in a space are balanced, more texture and colour can typically be added without seeming odd or obtrusive.
Focus on symmetry!
