The purpose of painting and decorating your house is to transform your closest environment, the space where you are living and where you and your family is spending most of your free and relax time, into the ideas and personality that you have. The way you could paint and decorate your house is infinite, there are some general styles you could decide to follow in painting and decorating, but you can add your own ideas and taste to it.
The First Thing
So the first thing you should do in deciding how you are going to paint and decorate your house is to choose which idea (or better to say message) your house have to communicate. What do you want your house to “say”? “I’m modern and simple”, “I’m young and full of style” or “I’m a artistic opera”.
Whether your house is in the city center, is old or brand new, you could always give it a general message by painting and decorating it properly.
There are thousands of ways to do this, but the first thing is to choose this main idea that need to be followed homogeneously in the entire living space and this could mean also in the external space of your house, because painting and decorating does not stop only on the “choosing the colours for your walls”, it means also to add accessories that match with the colours and decorations you are giving to your house. The accessories can be posters, pictures, carpets, ornaments, another style for you garden and the right fittings for your bathroom and kitchen.
So why should I have to “re design my home?”, “I spent enough when I bought it”.
Why? Is you house matching your ideas and style? When you see some beautiful house photos are you thinking “I would like to have an house like that one?”, you know what, somebody else is owning that house and you are living in the house you are owning right now. And you are going to live there for a while. So why waiting? just end of with the “thinking” and “wishing” and start to change your environment. Why conform to it? Change it.
You gonna feel a lot better if you have around what you like.
So these are some of the styles that catch most my attention, as I said before you don’t need to follow exactly each style, just keep in mind your message and use something of these styles to express it.
So what are waiting for? Sketch down your idea and start painting and decorating your house.
