Whether you have been in your home for years or are just moving
in, decorating a home can be challenging. You want to find pieces that accentuate
the positives in your home and hide the negatives. You can hide a weird
corner with an artificial tree or corner piece of furniture. If you have
exquisite doors or windows, don't hide them behind curtains or blinds. Get
simple shutters that can be opened and closed to show the charm your home
portrays. If the most appealing part of your home is the view, make sure
your furniture faces windows and doors that highlight these areas.
Your color choices do not have to be the same in each room, but should fall into the same color tones. If you prefer bold colors or earth tones, carry them throughout your home. It will make you feel as if each room flows together instead of making your home look choppy and unappealing. You don't need each piece of wood to be the exact same shade, but you want to make sure they blend. Stick with either light to medium shades or medium to dark. Having light in one area of a room and dark in another may make your home look as if you put pieces together that aren't suppose to coincide.
