When it comes to interior decorating, there are many great ideas out there for you to try out at home. With some simple and affordable plans, you can give your home an instant refresh. Try out the following home decor ideas for your home: 

Wallpaper

If you have a work-space and you own some floating shelves, you can easily give this area a breath of fresh air just by installing wallpaper. Cover the shelves with colorful wallpaper and your work-space will look brand new.

Potted plants

Place little pots of houseplants, herbs, and even grass to make your window areas more attractive. This simple idea needs some small pots and basic plants that you may already have in your garden. Just review at what you already own and adapt your plans from there. 

Home-made Shelves

How about creating shelves where you can display some of your favorite things? You can stack a few sturdy wooden boxes to get instant shelves. You can purchase these plain crates and stack them up wherever you need them. 

Framed artworks

Another idea is to use the sheltered enclosure of the shelves as a backdrop to small works of art. Frame little postcards or small reproductions in inexpensive frames and place them on your shelves. Interesting scenes will surprise your guests and serve as conversation starters.

Glass mirrors

How about dressing up your coffee tables? Placing a glass mirror on the surface of the tabletop creates a dazzling effect. It hides any imperfections of the tabletop, like gouges or scratches, and reflects light which will give your living room an upscale look. 

DIY picture frames

Did you know that those colorful little-dried seeds can look good on your photo frames? Get some dried seeds and glue them tightly together onto wooden frames. Random frames look like they belong in a designer set with these seeds around them.

More frame ideas

Speaking of walls and frames, consider another way to make your decorative works of art. Use this simple technique for your home: Cut out some snowflakes or whatever lacy design you fancy from colored paper, then glue this design into a neat arrangement onto a contrasting colored paper. Frame it for an instant work of art. 

Decorating your home and giving it a new look is simple and enjoyable to do. Try out some of the above home decoration ideas, and you will soon find your creativity soar.

Sometimes you just can't decide if you like modern, traditional, antiques, or transitional. The decision to choose one over the others is even more difficult if you've inherited family heirlooms with which you simply can't part. So, what do you do? Make a mashup that expresses all your styles!

Mix and match

Avoid the confining idea that furnishings need to match in order to “go.” A traditional sofa, Mid-Century Modern chair, an Art Deco table, and antique lamps can fit together as long as you remember and practice some of these "rules"—actually, they're more like suggestions since everything depends on what you own and want to keep.

  • Size matters. You can blend nearly any style together in your eclectic home as long as each piece is of similar “weight” in the overall scheme of things. What is weight? The thickness of the wood, height of the chairs, balance of the materials, all contribute to how a piece dominates the room. A heavy traditional leather sofa might overshadow a fine antique table, so perhaps they belong in different places.
  • Composition communicates. When everything in the room is modern except that one piece, it might seem out of place. Compose a balanced creation that has a few items from each era to make your design purposeful.
  • Texture transforms. When mixing several wood types or finishes, find a unifying texture to tie the pieces together. Make your sofa pillows of a similar feel to your throw and tablecloths so that it pulls the look together. Or utilize disparate textures in similar hues to drive the narrative of the room.
  • Metals magnify. Mixing metallics such as a metal and glass side table with natural wooden chairs and painted bookshelves makes layers in light and crisp, reflective and matte, to give your room depth and dimension.
  • Color calms. As mentioned above, utilizing a similar hue or range of shades from the same palette pulls the look together while deliberate splashes of a contrasting color provide interest and draw the eye.
  • Frame it up. To create equivalent mass to wall art, balance a large modern piece on one wall with a collage of smaller art in a variety of frames opposite. Spotlight a large framed mirror above a fireplace to add drama, or set it atop a Mid-Century Modern credenza to juxtapose eras.

Ultimately, your style is all about what makes you happy. If your pieces don't yet lend themselves to an utterly eclectic look, keep adding to your collection until they do. And if you're looking for an especially unique home, let your property specialist know what's on your mind.
