Living in a world that’s always busy and in a rush, can get overwhelming at times. And while most of us were looking for ways to get away from the fast-paced lifestyles we were living, the pandemic showed us that we will have to learn to spend some more time at home, alone, even though the people we love the most might be on the other side of the door.
We realised that the look and feel of our home matter a lot and we should not take any of the two for granted. So, if you want to make your home unique yet comfortable here are three simple ideas that may help you step up your decoration game in a seemingly effortless way. And while most homeowners leave them for the end, you may want to begin with the simple, but powerful decorative items.
Handmade Decorative Vases
The vase is more than just a water source for cut flowers. Additionally, it can help a flower arrangement keep its form for the most attractive display and support blossoms in the ideal position. The vase can easily become a focal point in your living room, dining room, entryway, restroom or any other area of your home you want to instantly brighten up.
Brass vases are an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor decorations. Brass is an alloy metal made with a mixture of zinc and copper, materials that give the brass its recognisable glossy finish with a gold appearance. You can choose from a selection of brass vases that are both unique and practical, but also, they are high-quality home décor pieces and exquisite craftsmanship. Handmade items can add a beautiful and timeless touch to any room, but a brass vase will certainly keep that touch for many more years to come as it’s an unbreakable piece of décor. The elegant design of this type of vase can complement many different blooms, allowing you to make the arrangements you’ve always wanted to see at your home.
For a stunning display, consider the vase volume, vase height and shape. Choosing the right vase can give you pleasure when you look it at rather than simply being a typical centrepiece in the room. For corners, table consoles or tall areas of your home, you can select cylinder-shaped vases. If you are working with a wide space, then you can opt for a broad container.
For table decorations and small areas, you can use shorter vases or bowls. However, in the end, it’s most important to take good care of the flowers. Fill 2/3 of the vase with room temperature water and change the water daily. Prune the stems and remove dead leaves and petals regularly.
While there is an art to matching flowers to the perfect vase, adding more art to your home décor is always welcome. Art is an integral part of our existence and a great way to bring colour and expression to your living space. An artwork print can instantly add personality to any room and make your home feel more welcoming and unique.
Even if selecting art doesn’t come naturally to you, it’s a good chance for self-expression, so make sure you choose a piece of art you like, whether it’s a canvas artwork print or framed print. It’s a great way to bring a sense of texture and add visual weight to your walls. Wall prints are some of the most common interior decorating tools in modern homes.
However, canvas prints and their frameless borders can provide a versatile approach and can easily adapt to almost any style. You can choose a canvas artwork print that you like because, at the end of the day, it’s your home and it should be a reflection of your taste and personality and not the current trends. Canvas is a sturdy material that keeps the vibrance of the printed image for a very long time.
Framed prints, on the other hand, are a great solution if you want to tie the room together in the simplest way. All you’ll have to do is choose a framed artwork print that will create cohesion between the room décor. Many art pieces these days come pre-framed, meaning that an expert has already taken care of it and found the perfect colour, size and finish of the frame.
If you are thinking about creating a gallery wall, then begin with choosing one piece that will be the central, focal point and hang the rest of the artwork prints from the middle out, leaving 5cm between each one of them. Matching your frames is a great way to give your wall a more put-together look, but not necessarily. Artfully mismatched frames can look good, too, as long as you like what you see.
If you want to create the living room of your dreams in 5 simple steps, make sure to follow them properly, but don’t forget to add a modern accent chair to it. It’s yet another form of seating you can add to your living room, usually smaller than the rest of the furniture, but charming and powerful. A carefully chosen accent chair is more than an additional seat, it’s an entire mood.
Accent chairs, also known as side chairs, are single-seat chairs that are a great additional seating solution, but also, they can instantly create an eye-catching focal point in your living room or bedroom.
There are many options available on the market, so you can choose a modern accent chair that meets your style preferences and offers ultimate comfort.
The best thing about accent chairs is that they are versatile, easy to move, and instantly transform the room. Your accent chair will add a pop of colour, texture and a chic look to your living room or bedroom. However, if you want to balance off the sofa in your living room and introduce additional seating options, then you can opt for two or more accent chairs.
Deciding how to arrange your accent chairs begins with knowing how many you can use in the room. Keep in mind that the accent chairs you choose don’t have to match, especially if they will be placed in different areas of the room. If they will be placed side by side, then you may consider getting a set of matching accent chairs.
Some of the most common places to arrange accent chairs are next to a coffee table, on the side of the fireplace, across from a couch where they can be paired with an ottoman or in an empty corner where you can rest and release your mind from the everyday stress.
