Beautiful Homes: Interior Decorating Theme Ideas
So what's the common link between beautiful decorated homes? Interior decorating approaches that take full advantage of the positive aspects of the space (such as an amazing view) while incorporating a theme that reflects the homeowner's personality.
You can and should take the same approach when you're ready to makeover a room in your home. Everyone needs change when it comes to their living space, and that is why it is important that you provide your home with a facelift every once in a while.
A change will lift your spirits and will freshen up the rooms that may have been beginning to feel shabby and out of date.
When thinking about decorating a space, it is a good idea to first decide which rooms in your home you are interested in changing, and then figure out if you want to make them over entirely, or if you simply wish to add a few decorations, and new colors to rejuvenate the room a little.
If you decide to completely redo a room you may want to think about using an interior decorating idea that is based on a theme or style, because this will help you select colors, furniture, and the accessories that will perfectly match your theme.
Types of homes interior decorating themes/styles you may want to consider for the various rooms in your home include:
* English Country
* French Country
* Art Deco
The beauty of selecting a theme or style is that although you may choose to design one of your rooms, for example the family room, in a southwestern style, you can always choose a different theme for another room, for example French country for your dinning room.
Once you have decided on your theme for a specific room, it is now time for you to consider your budget, and to think about all of the great ways you can make the room of your choice imitate the theme that most speaks to you.
Using The Traditional Style As An Example
To further expand on how you can make your theme work for you, imagine that you wish to use a Traditional theme, which is one of the more popular interior themes right now, for your living or sitting room:
Traditional Style Color Scheme - When choosing a color scheme for a traditional themed room, the idea is to make the room warm and inviting with softer and more contemporary colors such as a pearl or off-white, dusted with a touch of silver or gold trimmings to accent it.
Traditional Furniture Look - In order to achieve the traditional look, a good idea is to mix both the antique and modern looks of furniture. Solid wood table furniture is always a nice traditional touch that compliments the more modern furniture pieces such as couches and chairs.
Traditional is Avoiding Clutter - When trying to capture the traditional look in a room, you will need to ensure that although you add accessories, such as paintings, trinkets, plants and centerpieces, that you don’t over clutter the room.
If you have too many accessories in one place, these items will only take away the style and theme from the room. Therefore keep it simple and warm.
There are so many fantastic ways you can make your home beautiful. Don’t be afraid to be creative and add your own personal touch to some of the decorations you use, and choose the colors and themes that make you happy.
