An interior design for your home to match your style.

Is your home a reflection of you?

Making your home a reflection of you involves infusing your personal style, interests, and personality into your living space. Here are some tips to enhance your home with window coverings and other products in various styles, colors, and textures.

Identify Your Style: determine what style resonates with you the most whether it’s minimalist, eclectic, traditional, modern or a combination. Understanding your preferences will guide your design choices. If you are unsure of your design style check out design style on Pinterest or look at decor magazines and get inspiration. Sometimes we can love a look but loving it and living in it are 2 different things.

What do you gravitate too? Who’s home do you feel most comfortable in?

Get inspired by looking at interior design magazines, websites, and social media platforms like Pinterest and home decor blogs. Save images and ideas that you like and that show your personal style. Save images and ideas that resonate with you and reflect your personal taste.

Incorporate Personal Items: Display items and hold sentimental value or represent your hobbies, travels or achievements. This can include artwork, photographs, souvenirs, or collections. Find creative ways to showcase the things you love.

Choose Meaningful Décor: select decor pieces that resonate with you on a personal level. Fill your space with things that bring you joy. These could be handmade items, vintage finds, or objects that evoke happy memories.

Surround yourself with items that make you feel good. Choose things that bring a smile to your face. Fill your space with things that make you happy. What and who is important to you?

Customize Your Space: personalize your home by incorporating custom elements, such as furniture, textiles, or artwork that reflect your unique style and preferences. There should always be items in your home that are or one of a kind. This is what makes you different and sets you apart.

Use Color Thoughtfully: choose colours that evoke the mood and atmosphere you want to create in each room. Whether you prefer bold and vibrant hues, or soft and neutral tones colour can play a significant role in expressing your personality. Colour is often one of the most feared elements in decorating. Play with colours to find combinations pleasing to the eye but use color freely.

Mix Patterns and Textures: Interior decorating experiments with different patterns, textures and materials to add visual interest and depth to your space. Mixing and matching textiles, such as rugs, pillows and soft treatments can enhance the personality of your home.

Don’t under estimate the power of fabrics. Window treatments that draw the eye and soften the window offer another way to bring in texture and patterns. And, I can’t stress enough the importance and under use of texture.

Texture adds dimension and creates depth and coziness to any space. If you are wondering what is missing as a design element, many times it is texture.

Create cozy spaces: Design comfortable and inviting areas where you can relax and unwind. Incorporate elements like soft throws, plush pillows, scented candles, and ambient lighting to make your home feel cozy and welcoming. Design these spaces specifically as an area to unwind, recharge, and enjoy moments of comfort and tranquility.
