Do the walls of your home ever feel bland and uninviting? What you need for your home is to add depth to the walls. Everything from the colors of the walls to what you place on them helps to give your rooms a feeling of sophisticated complexity. 


Try Using Contrast On Your Walls


If you choose a dark color for your walls, you can use bright colors as a contrast to bring out the prominent features of the room. 


Use Texture On Your Walls


You don’t have to rely on paint to color your walls. It’s a good idea for you to use some tapestry or cloth and hang it on the walls to help add texture and depth to a room.


Reflect On The Room


Using mirrors can help to make any room appear bigger. Mirrors are deceiving in a way, but when placed strategically, they can really add a lot to a room. Allowing for reflections in the room also adds depth and a larger feeling to the space, 


Don‘t Make A Space Too Busy


Avoid using a lot of colors in a room. While contrasting colors add something special to a space, bright, mismatched colors will only make you dizzy. 


Make Use Of Tile


Particularly in kitchens and bathrooms, tile can help to add some depth to the space. Your kitchen can be painted a lovely color and finding tiles to match for a backsplash can really help the room to stand out. Even the color grout that you use can help add complexity to a room. If you have brick, wood, or any kind of stone present in a room, be sure to help those features stand out. The best way to approach design sometimes is to take what you see in nature and bring it into your space. From earth tones to highlighting the natural features in your home, you can really make your home feel well-rounded from the inside out. 


Try Painting The Walls Different Colors


There’s no rule that says you need to paint a room all one color. Often, you can add a lot to a room just by having that one accent wall. Putting the piece of furniture that will be the focal point of the room on the accent wall can really bring out the features of the room. If your color scheme is leaning towards blues and whites, for example, paint each wall white except for one. Choose an alluring shade of blue for the accent wall. Be sure that your furniture matches with whatever wall color scheme that you choose as well.                 

Whether you’re recreating a room completely, or simply re-purposing what you have, it’s easy to make your design work for you and provide complexity and depth.

Decorating your home as an adult can be a taxing task. Transitioning from a college student to a professional can take some time. Once you buy your first home, you may find that your tastes for decorating need an upgrade. Those old posters and funny magnets have got to go along with your more sophisticated lifestyle. The decor in your home should make you feel comfortable in your surroundings. You should express your own personal interests through the artwork that’s displayed in your home. 

Pieces of artwork shouldn’t just be run-of-the-mill. You need something that will let your personality shine through. You can collect unique pieces in your travels, use personal photographs that you have taken, or simply find things that have meaning for you.


It can be sort of intimidating to dive into a more mature way of decorating but, it can be very rewarding. You’ll also learn a lot about your own style and yourself. Through this self-discovery, you’ll find artwork that you can continue to grow with in your home. Below, you’ll find some tips for choosing the right artwork for your home. 


Set A Budget


Buying artwork can be an investment. If you’re a new homeowner, you may need to hold back on getting expensive art for a few years. Set a limit for how much art you want to buy and what you can afford. There are plenty of ways to get decorating pieces for your home for less money. Many stores offer artwork that can add some character to your walls. Even if these aren’t Picasso originals, they can certainly add some flair to the emptiness of a new house. Everything that adds personality to your home isn’t hanging on a wall either. Your decor includes the small figures on your tables, statues, plants, and more.  


Have Goals In Mind


If you begin hanging artwork without some reason, your decorating scheme could end up being a disaster. Map out a plan for each room. Think of themes, colors palettes, and the vision for the space. You don’t want to make a serious investment in artwork only to find out that it doesn’t fit with your wall color or furniture. When choosing artwork, it’s important to consider each room as a whole. 


Know That Tastes Change Over Time 


If you do invest in an expensive piece of artwork, know that it may not suit your needs forever. That’s OK! You can always sell artwork and find replacement pieces over time. It’s not expected that whatever you hang in your home when you move in will stay there for the next 20 years! Artwork very much flows with our lives, so go with the flow.

Spring is a favorite season of many. The weather gets warmer and the trees and flowers begin to bud and blossom. But spring is often a season that doesn’t get it’s own décor. Fall and winter, the coziest of seasons, have their own décor that differentiate them from the rest. Their decoration brings a cozy, warm feeling into the home. And when that décor is put away to welcome warmer weather, the home can sometimes feel empty. I’m here to help you change that. Check out these tips for the perfect home décor to welcome and celebrate spring. String Lights: One of the best things about the holidays are the decorations, which of course, includes lots and lots of lights. Although these often come down months before spring arrives, it is still nice to bring them back into the home, and outside of the home, for a new season. Have a deck or patio with a canopy or trees nearby? These are great places to hang simple string lights or decorative seasonal light strands such as stars, lanterns, and flowers. They bring a fun atmosphere to the outdoors. As for the indoors, adding lights above front doors or in bay windows can bring back some of that coziness that you feel in the cooler months. Candles: Candles are another form of décor that bring a feeling of warmth and contentment to the home and, they are not just for the fall and winter. Spring scented candles come in a myriad of fresh, floral scents. Flowers: Moods instantly brighten as the first buds begin to bloom. Bring that joy into to the home with fresh cut flowers, whether from your own garden or the local florist. They bring the season inside and add to the home’s springtime décor. Orchids, tulips, lilies, carnations and roses are perfect options to create lovely arrangements with. Arrangements are perfect for centerpieces on tables or in bay windows. Spring Holiday Decorations: Easter and Memorial Day are holidays that fall during the spring. Bring the festivities to the home by decorating for these holidays. Easter is always fun to decorate for with children but tasteful touches of Easter are equally as nice. Memorial Day may feel like the start of summer with much warmer weather and a holiday weekend, but should not be forgotten as a spring holiday. Cookouts and parties are a great excuse to add Memorial Day decorations to the indoors and outdoors. Other Home Items: There are so many other ways to add spring décor into your home. Consider decorative plates with spring colors and flowers, flower-patterned accent pillows, bedspreads, comforters, pastel colored blankets, and spring hanging artwork. Bring spring to life inside and outside of your home with décor that brings out the best of this season!
