How to decorate your home from scratch (easier than you think)
Are you moving to a new home and starting over? Before you start decorating your new home. Don’t feel overwhelmed! Here are six new home decorating tips when starting from scratch.
Determine your decorating style
If you can define the design style you want for your home interior, you’re halfway there! A simple rule of thumb is to use the same style for the interior as for the exterior of the house.
A transitional style goes with most of the architectural styles in the house. The look is a hybrid of modern and traditional, perfect for updating old home styles such as colonial or Victorian or for warming up a newly built home.
A modern furniture style is suitable and features clean lines. Wood and earth tones add a softer feel to the straight, crisp lines. Mid-century modern sofas or items are popular.
Contemporary design is the leanest and most minimalist of design styles. Few pieces are used in each room. The color selection is normally reduced to black, white or gray with primary color accents. Metals and glass, instead of wood, are in the spotlight.
The farm is very popular nowadays thanks to the designers. Style adds fun, cozy comfort and a little whimsy to your new home. To decorate from scratch in a rustic style, the most important are practical, comfortable and inviting. Sofas should be padded for comfort and covered with a low maintenance cover.
