While checking out condominiums for sale in the Scout area, you might be thinking of ways on how you can decorate your new home. Doubtless, you want your new condo’s interior to reflect who you are. Just to help you out, here are some design ideas to show off your personality.
When you say you want a feminine room, the first thing that comes to mind is a room decked out in pink: walls, ceilings, chairs, and maybe even a refrigerator! But that doesn’t have to be the case—not always, anyway.
•Paint your living room a solid color like sky blue and work around it by color blocking and complimenting it with a bold bedspread.
•Play with patterns by using floral covers for your throw pillows on a green sofa for the living room.
•Balance the sweetness with contemporary pieces like a long necked glass vase.
•Pick a patterned wallpaper for your kitchen-dining area and match it with a red dining table with either transluscent chairs or white chairs.
A bachelor’s pad, on the other hand, is no place for pink! Instead, you should go with deeper, richer and darker colors. Accent it with the classical white or bright yellow to achieve a really great effect. Decorations may be few but they can make a statement.
•Hang an oversized black and white print atop your comfortable dark grey, Lawson sofa.
•Cozy up in your bedroom with a sleigh bed in a dark wood, covered with a navy blue wool bedcover and cobalt pillows.
•Most men love their television so why not get a black display cabinet to show off not only the TV but books, DVDs, game consoles and trophies as well?
•A dark wood table (like mahogany) with leather chairs would look great in the dining area and it can also double as a working area if you add a steel hanging light.
Modernism doesn’t always equate with metallic and deep color galore. Rather, it’s clean lines and minimalism. It’s using what little resources you have and making the most out of it.
•If you’re decorating on a budget, hang uniform-sized picture frames with simple artwork on your wall.
•Go with white for your kitchen and a secondary color (such as turquoise) to accentuate it.
•Choose a bed with a dark headboard to be placed against an accent wall painted a bold color like crimson red.
•Pick furniture pieces with dual purposes, such as a stylish sofa which no one would think doubles as a storage area or a bed.
•Nesting tables are great for modernist as they do not take up too much space and when needed, all you have to do is pull them out from under one another.
A traditionalist has a home that’s comfortable for any age group, whether they be trendy teenagers, hardworking professionals, or wise senior citizens. Their home is a picture of calmness and predictability.
•For your dining area, try a wooden rectangular table with matched chairs on top of an area rug.
•Accessorize your home with an indoor plant or two. If you don’t have a green thumb, try a pair of lamps with silk shades strategically placed in the places where you’d need them most like the cornor of your home.
•Light Wooden furniture belong in a traditionalist’s home. These pieces are usually a mix of straight and curve lines with some detailed carving.
•Paint your walls forrest green or something that is in the mid-range of tones in a flat finish.
•Choose fabrics that are not too shiny or textured. Florals, muted plaids and small all-over patterns are good picks.
Decide on your favorite style and don’t worry about mixing up a few pieces! After all, it’s your own home and your goal is to make it the best place to go to at the end of a long and tiring day.
