DESIGN INSPIRATION || Top 5 Ways to add personality to your home

As seen on one of our previous posts, there are so many cool trends for 2018 that we absolutely love but if you don’t use them right, they can make your house look like so many other ones. For this reason, we are bringing you in this post 5 ways you can add character to your home.


 

1. Decorate with pieces that have a history

It can be one of these beautiful mirrors with gold frame, some of your grandfather’s book, a little jewel box that belonged to your grandmother, or simply an item that you have found in one of your travels. Adding little or small accessory pieces to your rooms can add a lot of character and can be a great point of start in your conversations.

2. Vintage Rugs

This is quite the trend right now, and we love it! Few things add more history and character to a room than a beautiful vintage rug, and it is so easy! The only thing to do is know how to use it. You would have to take into account the dimension of the place where you will add it, the amount of use it will get, and the color scheme so it can be the perfect accessory for your room. I know that they can be quite pricey, but if you layer them up with just a smaller one (more expensive one) on top of a larger (cheaper one) you will accomplish the look you where looking for.

3. Lighting Statement Pieces

Believe me when I tell you that nothing will make a better impact on a room than updating the light fixtures in a room. The light, the color of the fixtures, and the design can make the entire difference in a room. It can give it that sense of custom and special look that you are looking for.

4. Become Your Own Artist

Get creative! Go to Michaels and buy a canvas, brushes and your favorite painting colors. Creating your own art can be so much fun, especially if you do it while listening to your favorite songs, a glass of wine (or a bottle) or maybe watching your favorite Netflix series. The good thing about painting something yourself is that it doesn’t have to be a Dalí work of art, it can be something very abstract and you can give it your own meaning.Just let the brush guide you.

5. Create vignettes

By now, you should definitely know what vignettes are but if not, don’t worry. Trust me, you have seen them everywhere.  A vignette is a small, pleasing picture formed by grouping several objects — mostly on odd numbers. The grouping of small odd objects are pleasing to the eye and create a focus on specific objects. Some of my favorite ways to create vignettes is with mirrors, lamps, books, art, photos, plants, and jewelry.
