Living in a boring house might be OK to some, but I like to make sure my home shows off my personality. After all, I’m the one who has to live in it day after day. I want it to tell little stories about who I am and what I’m about. I want to feel like it resonates with me. If you’d like to do the same, here are some tips to make sure you can inject personality into your home:
Show off Your Favorite Artwork
One of my favorite ways to inject personality into my home decor is to show off my favorite artwork. Whether I’ve created it myself, bought it from a market or ripped it out of a book and framed it, I just love the way it can bring my surroundings to life! If you show off your favorite artwork, you’ll give guests an idea of your tastes and style.
If you really want to show off your personality, why not get crafty? There are projects of all sizes you can take on in the home to show people what you’re all about. You could make wreaths for your doors like me, or even make your old furniture look new. You’ll have lots of things in your home that are totally unique to you!
Show off a Collection
If you have a collection of something, why not show them off? Maybe you could show off your collection of seashells in the bathroom. I find it looks best if you stick to displaying one collection that you love. Having too many small accessories lying around can sometimes create too much visual clutter. Just something to bear in mind!
Display Pictures of Family and Friends
Having pictures of your family and friends in your home will make your home feel lived in. You don’t want it to look bare and boring. Adding pictures that you love is a really quick way to show off your personality and those you love.
Use Your Favorite Colors
Why not use your favorite colors? I know having neutral colors in the home is one of the most popular things to do these days, but I love a bit of color too. You could even just paint one wall. I like to make sure that whatever color I’m using, it goes with the mood of the room. For instance, I’d never have red in the bathroom as it just isn’t a relaxing color. I’d go for blue or green instead. In the living room you can get away with pretty much anything, depending on how you want to feel when you’re in there. If you’re not comfortable painting yourself, hire professional renovators to do it for you. Less stress and you’ll love the result!
Find a Funky Wallpaper
Funky wallpapers are a great way to add personality to any room in the house. You could cover a room in it or go for one wall. Whatever you prefer!
