There are moments when you get stuck in your home’s design. After some time, gazing at the same wall color and relaxing on the same furniture in the same position, might get tiresome. Fortunately, this is a simple issue that can be resolved with some paint. While looking for ideas for our next room renovation, we came upon a goldmine of surprising décor options. Here are several inventive ways to spruce up an uninspiring area, ranging from daring design ideas to stealing from the pros (like a vivid stripe painted across the ceiling) to easy switch-ups.
Two-Color Décor Options
In Raili Clasen’s multipurpose basement, two colors are preferable to one. Ripe Olive by Valspar is used on the upper section of the walls, while Belmont Green by Valspar is used on the bottom five feet. The result is powerful without being startling by using two shades of the same color. Use blue or gray hues to create a light impact.
Follow interior designer Natalie Papier’s example and paint a broad stripe down the middle of the ceiling, then carry the color down the far wall for a daring design choice that’ll draw attention to the right place (in this case, a built-in bookcase). The deep hue of orange used here is called Bugle Call by Valspar. Painter’s tape is your greatest friend if you want to get straight, clean lines on each side of the ceiling stripe.
Emily Henderson and Keyanna Bowen decided to cover only the upper half of the wall with the main bedroom’s flowery wallpaper, Artemis by House of Hackney, leaving the lower wall paneling white. When using a design that can potentially overpower the space, think about using it only on the top section and leaving the space below the chair rail a solid color.
Off the Shelves
Take a cue from Riya Jose’s office in the attic and hang paintings in front of the bookshelves, rather than on them, for a novel approach to interior design that doesn’t require painting or wallpapering. This level of care and attention to detail lends an atmosphere of depth and complexity to the space.
A covered porch was transformed into an additional living space by architect Eduardo Rodriguez with the use of a comfy rug that’s also water-resistant and a console table that serves both as a storage space and an attractive focal point. An outdoor chair is suspended from the ceiling, providing the most comfortable seating available wherever in or around the house.
The attractiveness of your home can be greatly enhanced via the strategic placement of home decor. If you want to leave a positive first impression, you should make sure that the colors and patterns mix well with the furnishings you have. Experts claim that having the appropriate decorations will offer you a sense of equilibrium as well as an intimate atmosphere. Therefore, after you’ve acquired the skills necessary to accomplish it properly, you’ll finally have a house that provides you with comfort and joy.
