I’ve tried for years to get the “magazine house” look. Let’s just say I haven’t gotten it yet. Here are a few things I’ve learned along the way.
It’s not specific designs that you need to focus on, it’s everything that a home embodies that helps it become something amazing! It’s all about following the crowd, but being unique at the same time. You need to take chances to see what works, and finding something that you know you’re going to stay in love with for a long time. But, if you don’t know much about interior design, these tips and ideas might help you.
The Farmhouse Look
This look is my personal favorite. I’m sure you’re familiar with Chip and Joanna Gaines style. The farmhouse style of course involves shiplap, neutral colors with small pops of color. For those pops of color you should use plants, flowers or décor items. Check out thrift stores for items that you can repurpose as décor or shop online for some amazing farmhouse décor.
The Outdoor Look… Indoors
This is the perfect way to start this article. It’s a trend that many haven’t tried yet, but many should definitely give a try. The outdoor look can be achieved in many ways, and one people are loving is the white brick slips. It allows you to have that indoor brick look, but a little something different to it. The white allows you to decorate the room any way you want, where as the standard brown/sand brick look would have limited your options. You can then stick to all metal accessories to give that real outdoor vibe, but in a really edgy indoor way. If you get this right, picture an American hipster studio, and that’s the look you’ll be close to achieving. If you want to add a bit more color, you need to make sure that you’re going for something like indoor plants. They’re great for your home environment, encourage something a bit more natural to your rooms, and help to add a bit of life to it!
Taking Things Retro
People are loving the retro look, but you have to be able to pull it off. Going retro is pretty easy however, you just have to go slightly more old school. We like the fact that accessories play a big part in this. If you want retro accessories, think of items such as a boom box, a record player, and woven pillows and rugs to get the vibe going. Stick to very neutral colors, and very basic furniture. If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration as to how to throw this all together, then take a look at articles such as this.
The Instagram Famous Looks
We all love to scroll through Instagram, and even if you don’t decide to look at what anyone else is doing, other people will! With interior design, you can find some really great looks, and the most common one is to use neutral colors, fluff things up, and make space like no one has ever made space before! It’s pretty easy to do so, you just need to find a picture you like, and take all the inspiration you need from it!
No matter what décor style you choose make sure it truly makes you happy and suits your lifestyle.
