How to Setting Styles At Home?

When making a decorative plan, you need to decide whether to follow an established style or create your own look.

A combination of both is possible, with many permutations allowing you to be as creative as you wish.

Forming Ideas

As with colour scheming, look for additional inspiration from various external sources when choosing a decorative style. Balance a number of different ideas carefully to achieve a result that you will be happy with and which will also be appreciated by- other people.

Deciding on Style at your house

  • Verifying age: If you wish to give your home a period look, do some thorough research into the requisite colours and styles before beginning work.
  • Watching movies: Watch movies and television programs as a source of inspiration and reference. In their need for authenticity, producers – especially of period dramas – need to pay attention to precise details.

Keeping Existing Style

If you are happy with an existing style, you may need simply to update or renew it. Do not feel obliged to change a look each time you redecorate.

Deciding on Style

Keeping within Budget

  • Decorating lavishly: Consider the costs of reproducing a particular style. Extravagant drapes may be needed for a period look, for example. You will then need to cut back on other expenditure, such as that for decorative accessories.
  • Making structural changes: Costs rise if major structural work İs carried out. Decide whether or not the benefits of the work will justify the additional expense incurred.
  • Choosing Paint: Paint is less expensive than wallpaper or other materials. Adapt a style to include painted surfaces for a less costly option.

Doing Research About

Source material for planning your style can be found in a number of different locations. All of these may inspire you and help you to form your ideas before making decisions.

  • Illustrated books.
  • Craft fairs.
  • Lifestyle and home decorating programs.
  • Trade shows.
  • Art galleries.
  • Places of historical interest.

Using Collections

Use a personal collection as a basis for a theme, extending its appeal and making it a significant part of a room’s decoration.

  • Using furniture: Some people collect furniture that reflects a particular historical period or influence. Use this theme as a basis for other decorations by matching colors and designs to complement the pieces.
  • Using pictures: Decorate a room so that your pictures will be enhanced by their surroundings. Large paintings can usually cope with lavish wall coverings, whereas smaller prints need a subtler backdrop that will not compete with them.

Stenciling a design Copy an image from an item that is displayed in the room – part of a collection, for example – by tracing over it. Use this to create a stencil design which, as well as adding decorative appeal to the wall, will also complement the item or collection.
