What does your home say about you? And how can you tell if your decor is wrong for you?
When it comes to styling your home it’s good to look at your life-style and setting up your home accordingly!
How do you use your rooms? What do you have in your rooms? Who lives with you? What do you need in your rooms?
It’s great to have and dream of a beautiful, lush home but will it actually work for you and your life style?
Here are a few helpful tips from an article courtesy of apartment therapy;
“Do You Have Children and/or Pets? If you have an idea that white sofas are the epitome of comfort and cool, remember that you actually have a drooling dog, or a peanut butter-smeared child. Or, it might be time to put away that sharp glass coffee table and bring out the soft ottomans instead. Your home might not always have to be that way, but right now, it is what it is”
“Are You a Morning Person or a Night Owl? If you are better in the wee hours of the morning, pick a bedroom that is at its brightest early in the day. Choose a light paint color. Those who like to sleep in should consider deeper tones and invest in some substantial window coverings to block out the annoying light.”
“Are You Good at On-going Maintenance? Cut yourself a break and reduce the amount of stuff you have to dust, and buy decor that’s easy to clean. Don’t acquire a bunch of plants that won’t get watered anyway, or create a large lawn that then needs to be mowed each week. Go for a rock garden instead”
