Are you planning a little seasonal revamp of your home? Well, the fall is the perfect season to do some housework and improve the vibes in your house. The weather outside is getting colder and you might rather want to spend time indoors where it’s cozy and warm. But what do you do when your space doesn’t spark that joyous comfort anymore? A little home interior decoration project and the following ideas will be just the thing you need to cheer up:
Be bold with paint
Most people resort to painting the walls when things get stale at home, and for all the right reasons. Paint is effective when refreshing the space, relatively cheap, and easy to “install.” But while most people today opt for neutral colors like off-whites, greige and subtle limewash, you can take a different route and be bold with your color choice, even just add a few accents. The bravest ones opt for soft black colors, especially when they have eclectic furniture to pop out from the dark hues and liven up the space.
Add paneling to the walls
Wall paneling is a great way to add interest to your walls, and it comes in different forms, from very traditional to very imaginative and modern. If you want to modernize your space, opt for faux paneling made with simple wallpaper panels. Let your seating rest under the panel and stand out. With this setup, you’ll create a modern space that’s symmetrical and minimalist yet intricate.
Or hang stunning tapestries
If you’re definitely not a minimalist, tapestries are made for you. An often-forgotten design element, tapestries can help you introduce depth, texture, and nature to your home. Since they often depict landscape scenes, lush foliage, and earthy natural colors, you can use tapestries instead of plants and nature paintings. To make your space seem bigger, designers often place tapestries near the window or opposite it—this extends the outdoor space inside and creates an illusion of a larger home.
Go with intricate wallpapers
If you’re a renter or don’t want to make any permanent changes to your walls or drill holes, we still have a fun solution for you to improve your home—stylish wallpaper. With almost countless varieties of different patterns and styles, wallpapers are a great solution for home improvement that won’t break your budget or wrack your walls. And with the right manufacturer, everything is possible, even realistic brick wallpaper that will add a touch of the industrial element to your space. And once you get bored of your brick accent wall, you can simply peel off the wallpaper and replace it with something different and new. There’s no better way to be bold with your interior design ideas without a serious commitment.
Create a gallery wall
This is another classic way to decorate your home that’s easy to put a modern twist on. For instance, you can opt for modern graphics and prints or even mix them with classic paintings and stitch art. Also, once you learn how to hang plates on the wall, you’ll be able to create colorful 3D designs no other artwork can replicate. A plate wall is a very economical and unique way to fill your blank walls, much less costly and personal than choosing original art.
Finally, use your fireplace
A fireplace is well designed with the rest of the room
If you have a fireplace that never gets any intended use, don’t let it just sit that way and waste space. Instead, use this environment to create a small gallery for your pottery. You can also create a book display or use it as attractive storage for extra stools or chests.
Create a cozy nook
Another great way to add comfort and interest to your space, a reading nook might be the best design solution. If you have any unused real estate, convert it into a reading nook to make your living room look more formal. Or you can turn your dining room into a cozy booth area. Opt for shapes and colors of furniture that are homey and cozy in order to boost comfort when relaxing alone or entertaining guests.
Add new life to your windows
The right window treatment can completely change the vibe in your space. For instance, you can opt for Roman shades in fun patterns to make the space look more interesting and vibrant. And don’t hesitate to mix small patterns and really boost that visual interest. Also, you can choose to paint the window frames to both create a stunning feature in your home and accentuate the views. Go bold with accent colors like terracotta or sunny yellow to make the space look nice and bright, even on gloomy days.
Today, you can really let go and show off your design preferences while improving your home. If you lack ideas, hopefully, these above will inspire you to go improving your home right away!
