Your home is your castle and there is no greater way to express your personal style than in your home decor. So how do you make the halls of your home scream YOU without making the entire house into an extension of your slightly unkempt bedroom? Strategic decorating! Carefully planned pieces can take your decor from cold and impersonal to cozy and completely you. Here are five ways to make it happen:
A Picture Gallery
A picture gallery is the perfect addition for your long hallway or empty staircase! You can fill your picture frames with pictures friends and family and amazing adventures. Feel free to tell the story of your life and share it with the world on simple blank walls. All you need is a standard digital camera to completely customize your picture gallery. The finishing touch is perfected by finding a professional framer, like Frameology, to pair your carefully selected pics with the perfect frame!
Make your home beautiful and thought provoking ! Stencil your your favorite quote and onto a plain wall with a beautiful font to capture the eyes and minds of your guests! You can choose something funny or heartwarming or inspirational, the choice is yours- whatever speaks your mind. Set the tone for the room with words and dress it up with a fitting font. You can even stencil the words in with a unique texture or set the words against a brightly colored background. It’s all up to you.
A Feature Wall
A feature wall is a striking visual engagement for any room. The best part is that it offers you the chance to exercise your creative genius in a real way. There are a million ways to create a feature wall that really expresses your personal tastes. You can have an amazing picture turned into a digital mural or choose a textured wallpaper to create a beautiful and interesting contrast. From faux stone to recycled pallet wood, the choices are limitless. Whatever your choice, a feature wall is a simple way to voice your unique style in your home.
