Home Decor is an Expression of You

Have you ever walked into a home and everything was in its place? Even though the kids had toys scattered around on the floor it still looked neat and tidy. The decorator created that look to be pleasant to the eyes and it worked. However, not everyone has the gift of creating a pleasant look in decor.

There are several decorating styles that home owners can choose from and there is something that works for everyone. If you are not an expert at home decorating, don’t worry, there is a look out there for you too.

One of the easier home decorating techniques is shabby chic. This look combines the look of romantic and southern styles together to create a relaxed and charming look. This decor focuses on painting the walls to create a new look. You have several choices to choose from in paint colors so this look may be the perfect look for your.

Shabby Chic

When arranging the furniture in shabby chic, it should be comfortable. The furniture should be worn down looking. If you have new furniture then you may want to choose a different decor or you may want to go ahead and sand down the corners of the wood slightly so they look worn down a bit.

Place an old trunk in the corner with a piece of lace material sticking out in front. You can also decorate your trunk in other ways such as placing flowers on top or an old photo.

Country Decor

There is also the country decor. This is a simple decor that reminds you of back home. Most people choose a theme with the country decor today. For example, roosters, strawberries, sunflowers, and more. There are more warm colors in this decor than any other type of color. The overall look should be warm and inviting. You can also add natural looks to your decor. For example, hard wood flooring. Wood carving knick-knacks to sit on the shelf is also a great addition to the country decor.

Farm animal figures can be placed on the open shelves in the room. Egg baskets can be placed on the counter. Fill it full of fruit for more color. You can also add milk crates to the decor. Milk crates can be stacked for books, knick-knacks, and more.

Western Decor

Another safe decorating style is the western decor. If you want to create a room that everyone will love to be in then try the western decor. You can relax the decor a little to make everyone feel welcome. You can add wrought iron decorations on the walls, leather rugs on the floors, and the color red and denim is okay. The look is simple but distinct. Southwestern rugs are also popular with the western decor.

Cowboy figures can sit on the tables and a saddle blanket can be folded up and placed on top of the ottoman. Not only will it be colorful and decorative but it will also keep you warm on chili nights.

As you see, it’s easy to decorate your home in a creative style without going to interior design school. Decorating is about your taste in color and design. If the look is pleasing to you, it will be pleasing to others as well.
