When it comes to interior design, there’s a lot to consider. There’s a lot of hard work to be done. Perhaps the biggest obstacle to overcome is making the hard decisions that separate a simple house from your dream home. After all, your dream home, by definition, must be perfect, so where do you start when working toward perfection? There are countless options, too, so it’s not exactly easy to choose how to design your home. However, simply narrowing your focus can do wonders for getting the ball rolling. Simply having that initialy spark of an idea can allow your dream home’s blueprint to just kind of naturally fall into place. Therefore, I present you with these suggestions to help you find your spark.
First and foremost, consider the unifying power of a theme. Creating a them across your whole house can really bring the end result to life and create a cohesive feeling. An example of one such theme is an oceanic theme. This theme would start, of course, with a palette of blues and greens. Teal, seafoam, and turquoise are particularly evocative of the ocean, so they make great choices. Then, you would add to it some thematically appropriate decor, such as seashells, an aquarium, or some (replicas of) vintage diving gear. Don’t forget to hang any relevant paintings, photos, or posters, too, like that photo of your with that seal at Seaworld! You don’t have to commit to a single theme for your whole house, of course. You could do a unique theme for each room or just a single themed room. The choice is yours.
Another idea for your home is to consider the flow of your space. Take a look at the furniture in your living room. Now, imagine pathways along the floor connected each piece o furniture and going from one room to the next. The flow of your home is dependent upon these pathways, and so you’ll want to make these pathways as efficient as possible to make moving around your house as easy as possible. You’ll also want to make pathways to various points of interest in a given room as well, so an errant ottoman can really throw everything out of whack.
With these tips in mind, hopefully, you’ve found your spark. If not, that’s okay. You’ll find it some day. However, simply giving your some things to think about will surely help your search moving forward.
