Following the advice of interior decorators can lead to a very well put together space but it’s not always the most personal space. The best option is to combine the two: find a way to make your space feel both personal and put together. Here are a few ways to make a space truly your own.
A single statement piece
These days, one of the biggest trends is large letters with lights inside them. You can pick the first letter of your first name or you can spell something out. Perhaps you can spell out the initials of you and your sweetheart. Whatever you choose, these letters are bold choices that will show off something important to you.
There are a seemingly unending number of drapery options out there but it can still be tough to find the exact right fabric, size, etc. Custom drapes are more affordable than ever and allow you to essentially design your own drapes. When guests come over and tell you how much they love them, you’ll be proud to say that they’re your own custom creation.
Show your state pride
Showing pride in where you’re from is a fun, easy way to personalize your space. You’ll find any manner of accessories showcasing your state, from cutting boards to pillows and beyond. You may choose the state you currently live in, the state you’re from, or even a favorite state you’ve visited. Another fun idea is to have accessories from each state you’ve been to scattered throughout a room.
Unique picture ideas
One of the most common ways people personalize a space is with photos. They might be photos of themselves on their travels, of their families, of their loved ones, or a mix of all of these. While it’s always nice to have photos, it can begin to feel a little cliché. That’s when you need to find unique ways to show them off. You can have picture sprinted on blankets and pillows, you can get custom candles made with your photos, and you can even buy a doorbell cover that looks like a picture frame.
If you’re an experienced photographer, create art out of your photos that don’t include other people. Just like the pride you’ll feel showing off your drapes, you’ll be amazed at how great it feels to have others tell you they love your work before they even know it’s you they’re complimenting.
