You don’t need huge rooms to create a fun and fanciful space that shows off your personal flair and individuality. Your decorating plans can evolve as you explore and develop your style, and you’ll have fun along the way.
Curate Your Collections
Notice the display windows in your local mall. Never stagnate, the window displays are always being changed for another season or holiday. You don’t need to display all of your collections at once. Create vignettes with parts of your collections mixed with other fun finds and rotate them often. You’ll never grow tired of your chachkes and your guests will be surprised each time they visit.
Textures Add Richness
Whether you choose bright and bold color choices or like to keep everything neutral for a refined, quiet look, use a variety of textures. This visual layering of adds depth and gives a feeling of luxury.
Loads of fun pillows in different shapes and materials are great for chairs and sofas and you can quickly change them out for a different look whenever the mood strikes.
An area rug over carpeting is unexpected but adds additional interest and defines a seating arrangement.
Throw an afghan or quilt on the back of a couch or the foot of a bed. Use a quilt as a wall hanging. Using fabrics is an inexpensive way to add loads of texture and color.
Paint the inside of your kitchen cabinets or paint the inside of dresser drawers for surprise bursts of color. Use wallpaper remnants, fabrics or scrapbook paper to cover the back wall of a bookcase or armoire. These pops of color add quirky charm to any room.
Simple vases of fresh or silk flowers add color anywhere and gives a little excitement to a dark corner or a neutrally decorated room.
