You want your home to be a place you’re happy to show off to people, especially if you’re the type of person to have company often. You want to have signature pieces that stand out while it still feels like “you,” and you want to have items that evoke communication and make people ask questions.
This isn’t as difficult a task as it may sound. It can be fun and easy to make your home look unique. The key is to start with one room. If you’re doing it to show off your unique style to others, you want to pick a room that people are most likely to see. Your living room may be a good start.
Invest In Antiques
Decorating your home with antiques is a great way to give it a unique look. Antiques make people ask questions, and many of them were made far better than the stuff that is made these days. If you have children, though, you want to make sure that your antiques are sturdy and can withstand little ones’ abuse.
Shopping for antiques can be fun, but it can also be competitive since people love them. Have an idea of what you’re looking for and how much a good price to pay for it is before you step into the shop. Don’t be afraid to try to negotiate prices either!
Go For Country-Chic
Another way to make your home look fun and unique is to combine some styles and colors. A country-chic home doesn’t have to have chickens hanging on the walls. It’s more about mismatched dishes that still somehow complement one another. That is the key when it comes to mixing and matching patterns, style, and colors; pick things that compliment each other, rather than contrast (although a nice contrasting focal point, like a different colored wall, can make any room “pop”).
It’s also about natural colors, like the reds and yellows of chicken feathers. Have fun with it and let yourself be open to things not always going together, like a mix and match array of dining chairs instead of a perfect set.
Make It Uniquely You
The key to any home decorating job is that you want the place to be “you.” Decorate with things that interest you. Make the base colors your favorite colors. You don’t have to use the Pantone color of the year to have a beautiful home interior.
If you like music, make your home look musical. If you like birds, decorate your home in the fashion of your favorite bird (blues and greens for peacock lovers, yellows and reds for chicken lovers, etc.). Have fun and put yourself into it, and you’ll love your home.
