Your all-important guide to decorating your home with personality and flair
Published: 18 June 2018 (1286 Views)
If you are planning to decorate your home, you basically have two options: you can either go to the nearest home décor shop and purchase generic products, or you can try decorating it in your own style and personality with some carefully-chosen pieces. Obviously, many people would like to go for the second choice, but it can be difficult to do this if you don’t know where to start. So how can you decorate your home with personality and flair? Here’s your all-important guide.

Take inspiration from your heritage

One way you can decorate your home with your own signature flair would be to take inspiration from your heritage. Your heritage is where you come from, and you have many choices when it comes to displaying your heritage, from artwork to pottery, textiles and fabrics, photographs, housewares, and other items. If you want, you can even have some old family photos (black and white photos are perfect) framed so you can display your family’s ancestry in a wall gallery.

Show off your hobbies

Different people have different hobbies, and if you’re interested in something, why not show it off? If you like taking photographs, you can show off some of your best pictures. If you like pottery, create a display of some of your most outstanding pieces. The same is true if you like working with wood, if you like collecting items such as black and white artwork, you can display it as well. If you want beautiful black and white framed art in the UK, you’ll be happy to know that there are shops which specialise in this.

Think about your lifestyle

You should also think about what’s important to you and what constitutes your lifestyle – are you a single individual who loves pets? Then perhaps you can incorporate this into your décor. Do you love throwing parties for friends and family? Showcase your hosting skills with a brilliantly-decorated dining and bar area. Your décor can be a good reflection of your lifestyle.

Be proud of your profession

If you have a profession which you love, you can impart a bit of your personality in the different rooms in your home by displaying some items that are related to your profession. For example, if you are a musician, you can collect musical memorabilia such as guitars and give them a prominent place in some areas. If you are a sports coach, you can display vintage memorabilia or equipment, and if you are a photographer, you can display vintage cameras or old photographs as well.

When it comes to decorating your home with personality and flair, the possibilities are certainly endless – and you’ll have a beautiful, interesting abode which you can really call your own.
