Designing Your Home From Your Pinterest Boards
Choose a Color Scheme
A color palette for your home should be first on your list. Every room doesn't need to be the same color, but you do want a cohesive look.
Mix & Match
Try not to recreate one particular pin. Fabrics and textures are a great way to create a unique feel in your home. You don't want to get trapped in the matchy matchy home catalog look, but you do want everything to tie in somehow. Make sure your items somehow relate to one another. Don't get everything at once. Spread out your shopping to ensure you get items that have differences between them.
Statement pieces are in! Step outside the box and decorate with something that is unique to your family. For example, in our home we have an old military ammo box and a Jack Daniels whiskey barrel. Don't be afraid of the unusual!
End of season sales are phenomenal! Your decor should absolutely change with the season to avoid getting stale, but that doesn't mean you need to break the bank. Shopping the good sales will help you create an inventory of creative seasonal decor. The best part is that you can mix and match throughout the year with your items. Buying some greenery for a Christmas themed centerpiece could also be used with some accents of spring flowers a few months later.
His & Hers
We all love the his and hers options on Pinterest, but how can we create the look without the words his and hers all over our homes? EASY, use textures! Why not showcase your feminine side with a smooth and chic metallic piece. It could be a cursive, metal "blessed" sign for the kitchen. Masculine accent pieces are a great way to create a balance. A rustic and weathered oversized wooden clock offers a great aesthetic feel to a room that is more feminine. Incorporating both will give your house the welcome home feel you've always wanted and is sure to impress your guests!
