What makes a home truly yours? We’ve got six basic items you’ll need to make your home stand out with your personal style fingerprint.
“Original” is a trend in itself, one that is unidentifiable, unexplainable and limitless. Use originality to complement contemporary designs, palettes and themes – elements that are meant to be the foundation of your style, not the main event.
What makes your house your home is in the details, small features and personal touches. This is what you add to best-sellers, plain furnishings or simple décor items that brings your home to life.
What makes your home youer than you? (Courtesy of Dr Seuss.) Well, it’s simpler than it seems, especially if you’ve got these six basic items around the house:
1. Photo frames
When it comes to filling your home with décor items, it’s all about the personal touch. What makes anything more personal than the style you pick? Filling them with cherished photos.
Or for more subtle personalisation around the home, opt for a photo frame. They can really be a statement piece in themselves with colour, pattern and texture.
2. Vase of flowers
Welcome yourself home every time you walk through the door with the sight of your favourite freshly cut flowers in a gorgeous decorative vase. Place it in the hallway or as a centrepiece on your dining table. Don’t wait for guests to come around – spoil yourself too!
Flowers are easy to switch up with your mood – daisies for cheer, roses for romance or tulips for elegant simplicity.
If maintaining fresh flowers doesn’t fit into your schedule, opt for exquisite artificial plants that suit your style. Good looks that last, now don’t you just love that?
3. Scented candles
It’s important that your home not only looks like it’s yours but smells like it too. We could only wish that our homes smelled as sweet as freshly cookies every time we walked through the door.
Light up a decadent candle with the scent of vanilla, jasmine, cinnamon or whatever tickles your fancy – there is no wrong! Keep it consistent for the scent to naturally flow into your rooms.
4. Typography prints
Prints bring walls to life, and what better way than to hang one with a childhood quote, favourite lyrics or a line from a touching novel?
Typography shows your character in a subtle yet effective way, heightening your décor with that personal touch.
Whether it’s professing your love for coffee, filling the room with good vibes, or a reminder of love and happiness, your print will be a game-changing feature in your home.
Cushions add volume to your furniture and are a great way to personalise your look with prints, colour and pattern.
Whether you’re a lover of coffee, quirky design, or F.R.I.E.N.D.S, you’ll know that nothing makes us feel at home more than the simple things – and we mean as simple as mugs. You start your mornings with them and they’ll wrap up your nights too.
They’re a general household item, so take advantage and play with colour, size, shape and even mismatch them for a more personal collection.
Nothing is more of a glimpse into someone’s personality than the print of the mug they have in their hands!
