We spend a big percentage of our time within the confines of our homes at this time of year. Long dark days & nights, and wet weekends enforcing stay-in’s. This is when you really look around your space and start to judge it critically. Do you like what you see? Could you make bolder choices pulling you out of the ‘ordinary’?.
So many recent home interiors look like they’ve come from the same catalog. Even shops and restaurant styles are taking on similar themes. Collectively uninspiring, losing any standout appeal of personal style, opinion and individuality. It’s easy to follow a look-a-like design or neutral/bland scheme that all the estate agents advise you stick to. Obviously with good reason, to capture the ‘mass’ market. Who could then put ’their’ own stamp on it.
But if you’re NOT planning on moving within the imminent future, then the ‘safe’ decorating rut is certainly one you can get out of. Even if you are not in a position to radically change anything about the structure, you could definitely change your interior by creating a unique and memorable design that better suits you.
So instead of following the trend, make your own statement! Whether it’s eclectic, eccentric, extravagant or whatever you want it to be?
An interior design that is braver, more adventurous, a vision of how you feel in your home - today. Maybe even taking a few risks with a ‘patterned’ wallpaper or an unexpected large artwork. These relatively ’small’ decorating decisions have the potential to make a big impact and could feel scary. But as long as you like it and they speak volumes about you - what risks are you really taking?
If you’re able to rise above the mediocre then you might be surprised at all the positive comments and be encouraged to go further with more confidence.
But if you can’t see beyond the old decor or you are having problems even selecting furniture or the right art piece, then we’re here to help. Working with your brief for how you’d prefer to live in your home. So instead of following the trend, make your own statement! Whether it’s eclectic, eccentric, extravagant or whatever you want it to be? Make it a true reflection of your style this year. Something to think about, at least!
