It can take some time to get used to moving into a new home. It is possible to transition seamlessly from one comfort zone into the next with minimal effort. This post will provide some decorating tips and tricks to help you create a relaxing oasis in your new home.
You have to admit it, and there is never a day that passes without you coming across a stunning piece of furniture. The stunning red sofa you saw in a magazine or the beautiful armchair in a showroom while on your way to work will call you, and you’ll slowly decide that you need it. A cosy home is more than just about how it looks. It is also about how furniture can add to that feeling of comfort and familiarity. Can you picture yourself curling up with a book while reading a new seating piece for your home? You might want to keep looking if that isn’t the case. Furniture should be both comfortable and stylish. If cosiness is your goal, it may be worth making a small compromise in aesthetics.
The Magic of Touch
The texture is one of the easiest ways to make your home more inviting. You should surround yourself with objects you love to touch. Modern rooms can feel more relaxed and comfortable with the addition of fluffy carpets, wavy wallpapers, or smooth wooden furniture. The proper use of texture and fabric can also help reduce the room’s size and give it a sense of cosiness.
Welcome Furniture Diversity
Although it’s the easiest way to fill a space, buying large furniture sets with everything is not the best. Your new home should not look like a showroom. And, believe it or not, you will likely end up with many items that were bought from one place. Even if you have different styles, don’t be afraid to mix things up. A vibrant interior stimulates your senses and appeals to your guests. Your friends will likely enjoy the interior if they feel it is harmonious and you are happy to be a part of it.
Use Warm Colors
It’s no secret that colours can evoke different emotions and moods. This makes this design industry very interesting. While cool colours such as blue, purple, and dark green can enhance a room’s visual appeal, warm tones like peach-orange and brown can make it feel smaller and more welcoming. You can see how the large interior of the photo above has been reduced by adding curtains with orange and red flower patterns to the yellow walls and sofas.
Multiple Lighting Sources
Lighting can make a space appear larger, longer and more spacious. We often overlook the magic effects it has on a room. Although it may sound strange, a few fixtures can make a room appear larger, longer, and cosier. What is it that makes a room more welcoming than the others? All it takes is repetition. You can place several table lamps around a room to reduce its size for a more intimate feel. A ceiling light should be used only for formal events or larger gatherings.
