Homes are where stories are created, and you tell these stories through your home decor. To keep your story interesting, from time to time you need a new chapter – a new look for your home. However, thinking about home interiors and a new look can sometimes be overwhelming if you don’t know where to start, and that’s where we can give you a hand.
We have curated five innovative ideas according to the latest industry trends – one for every room.
#1. Living room
The living room is where we spend most of our time, so the living room has to be functional and comfortable.
When it comes to designing the living room, numerous options are available. From them, we recommend the following:
a) Get a statement coffee table
Most people decorate their coffee tables with an assortment of stuff. You can either place a unique looking coffee table as the centrepiece or play around with a few smaller ones. Experiment with the table itself to make a statement.
b) Play around with throw pillows
Pillows and throws are a great way of sprucing up your living room. If the overall colour tone of the room is basic colours such as beige and brown, you can experiment with colourful, printed pillows to make the mood more vibrant. On the other hand, if the room has bright colours, use basic coloured throw pillows to mellow the overall tone.
You can also use theme-based pillow covers for bringing cheer during the festive season.
c) Hang a chair
This idea works well for the aesthetic as well as comfort. Hang a chair and see the feel and look of your living room transforming immediately.
#2. Ideas for the bedroom
The bedroom has to be the cosiest room in the house. To lead a happy and productive life, we need to calm down, unwind, have a well-rested sleep, and wake up bright and fresh. Therefore, bedroom design requires special attention.
Here are three ideas to design your bedrooms in PJ, which will help you create a comfortable yet stylish look.
a) Use relaxing colours
The bedroom is all about calming down – sleeping, reading a book, or listening to music. Hence, use calming colours. No, we are not talking about whites and beiges only. We mean blues and greens – colours derived from nature.
Here are a few ways you can get channel the calm and beauty of nature outdoors, indoors.
b) Pay attention to the wall behind your bed
Much attention goes to the wall behind your bed immediately upon entering the room. Design this wall carefully. You can use simple wallpaper, install lighting, use lamps and mix and match. But pay attention to avoid overly bright colours that may stimulate you instead of relaxing you!
c) Hang a light over the bedside table
Having a lamp on the bedside table is so done! Hang a light over the bedside table instead, for a unique look.
#3. Kitchen Ideas
When it comes to the kitchen, a hundred things are possible. No matter the size and shape of your kitchen, you can implement tons of ideas and make it look unique.
Here are three ways to get you started:
a) Seamless open kitchen
If you have an open kitchen visible from your living room, try to match the colour combination and décor with the living room. This will provide a smooth transition from your living room to the kitchen – making it look like one big room.
b) Play around with wooden texture
A great way to give your kitchen a classy look is to play around with wooden textures and materials. Using wood can give your kitchen a modern and classic look simultaneously.
Here are a few jaw-dropping ways to use wood textures in your kitchen.
c) Move away from whites and browns
Most kitchens you will see use whites and browns. Why not use some other colours instead? Try red, blue, green and any different colour you fancy. But do remember not to overdo it.
#4. Ideas for children’s room
The children’s room is probably the room that requires the most attention since it can significantly impact your child’s upbringing. And, of course, the room can create memories to be cherished for a lifetime.
Here are three ideas that you can try:
a) Make ample use of natural materials
The importance of nature cannot be emphasized more, especially in a child’s upbringing. Use plant-based materials such as wood and rattan.
b) Create a cosy nook
Create a cosy corner for your child. Install an indoor swing, put a tent or create a play area for them.
Here are some easy ideas to create cozy reading nooks for kids.
c) A statement designed wall
Enhance the fun with a statement designed wall. You and your child can install crafts here, paint it yourself… make it a fun space.
#5. Ideas for the study/library
If you have a room or even a corner designated as the study or the library, we recommend keeping it simple. You can install a comfortable chair in a statement colour to bring the oomph factor. Use primary colours such as whites and beige to avoid getting distracted while reading.
The study is a great place to use for work from home. In that case, ensure that the table is of the right height and you have a comfortable chair to avoid straining yourself during long hours of sitting and working.
