It's no secret that decorating your new home can be a daunting task. Picking out paint colors, furniture and accessories can be a bit overwhelming for anyone who hasn't been to design school. But there are a few tricks that can make it easier to select a cohesive element in your house.
First, it's a good idea to identify a style that fits your own. Flip through the pages of a home design magazine or go online to your favorite decor website and find pictures of spaces that you like. Then look for a commonality within the photos that you like and see if you can identify an aesthetic.
This could be anything from a color to a style or it might be as specific as a certain type of furniture. Once you've begun to hone in on your taste, it's going to be a lot easier to begin decorating your home, simply select elements that fall within your chosen aesthetic and you're off to a good start.
Even accents like drapery, which are often tricky to pick out, can be much easier to decide on when you have picked out a chosen style for your space. For example, a formal living or dining room that is decorated in a traditional style deserves window treatments that fall within the same category. Pick out some nice silk drapes and curtains then, to outfit this space.
Likewise, if you've selected a more contemporary style for your home, you're going to want to make sure that you select the right drapes to fit that look. Something simple like grommet drapes will suit this space much better.
Even though decorating a new house can seem like an insurmountable task, if you take the time to identify your personal space, it will be much more manageable.
