Sick and Tired of Doing Your Home Design and Décor The Old Way?

The rules of design and décor are a few things many people are breaking on a regular basis.

They somehow believe that there’s just one way of doing design and décor: the old way of matching everything with one color.

You will be interested to know that this isn’t the right way of creating décor anymore: there are some other aspects that are making your room’s design special and unique.

These are some tips on how you can do your design and décor yourself, without following the old rules and guides:

Are you sick and tired of your white walls and ceilings and think that this is the way that you should do things?

Then you will be glad to know that you don’t need to paint your walls and ceiling white: you can paint it any color you like!

It might be a great idea to ensure that the walls and the ceiling color do match, but you will be surprised at how different a room can look with another color than white.

When you change your décor again, try changing the color of the walls – you might actually like the different look and feel!

A dark or lighter room?

Mix and Match Different Styles

In order to have a great design, you need to make sure that you know when you should have a darker room and when you should consider a lighter room. No surprise to hear that this is one mistake many beginners tend to make.

If you want to make a room appear larger, then lighter colors are preferable (especially, when it comes to the walls of the room).

Light blue will be a much better choice of color than dark blue. The darker colors are the rooms that are huge and where you don’t have enough furniture in.

Now we’ve let you in on this secret, go apply it and your home will already look different, in a modern way.

Mix and match different colors and styles

The rule where you need to make everything pink or where the sofas in your room need to match perfectly doesn’t apply anymore.

Now, you can mix and match different styles and colors together. As long as the styles and colors do match, you can do anything you want.

It is modern to purchase lose sofas where the style is matching and place them in one room. Then, by using one single color, you can “bind” the sofas together and make them a unit. Cushions and curtains are the only things that need to be one or in the most two different colors.

Hire a professional with unique and interesting décor
