Busy parents with limited financial possibilities can seldom afford to consult an interior decorator every single time they feel the need to upgrade their personal space. If you are a working mom driven by a powerful desire to imprint your gorgeous personal style on your family home, you should know that there are many simple, cost-effective methods that parents can use to accomplish their mission.
Start by determining your own style and assessing your long-term objectives. Would you like your house to be less rigid and traditional-looking and “more you”? If that’s the plan, all you need to do is to put all your thoughts on paper and follow these basic pointers to get started.
1) Choose Your Favorite Style, Fabrics and Colors. How do you picture your rooms? What kind of upholstery, wallpaper, flooring materials and furniture are they displaying? Pay attention to the tiniest details and make sure they are a part of the same picture. For instance, lace and leather are hardly a good match when it comes to interior design ideas. Choose a color scheme and stick to it. This will make it easier for you to select and add the decorative elements that truly represent you: a luxurious chandelier, a portrait, a large framed family photo mounted on your wall, or a marble or bronze statue – the possibilities are endless.
