When it comes to interior design, there are a number of factors that come into play, a lot of ins and outs, that contribute to your dream home. It’s a lot of hard work to transform your home into its perfect and final form, but I think we can all agree that it’s worth it. Home is where the heart is, after all, so you’re not really home until you find a home, or create one, that your heart can truly love. One of the hardest parts of this process, however, can be the planning phase, as it can be difficult to suss out just what perfect means, despite the fact, or maybe because of it, that it’s your own subjective take on the lofty concept that is perfection. IT can help to get the ball rolling, then, to simply hear of or see some examples of what others have to done to bring their own dream home to life, so here are some examples to help you narrow your focus and build the home you deserve.
First and foremost, consider using a theme to unify your home. Using a theme can really bring your home to life by giving it a cohesive feeling. One example of a theme you could use to make your house a special one is an oceanic theme. This popular theme starts with a color palette that is evocative of the ocean, so start with shades of blue and green. Some of my favorite colors in this neighborhood are teal, cyan, and seafoam. Then, you’ll want to round out the theme using some thematically appropriate decor, so it’s time to take a trip to Overstock.com to find things like anchors, seashells, retro diving gear, fish tanks, etc. Anything to brings to mind the many facets of the ocean. Don’t forget to include any photos, paintings, or posters you may have on hand or are willing to purchase to complete the picture, so long as they fit the theme.
Don’t feel like you have to commit to stretching a single theme across your whole home. You could, instead do a unique theme for each room. For example, you could do an ocean theme in one room, such as your bedroom, and then complete the classic elements with a room devoted to earth, one to air, and one to fire, as one example. Or, you could stick to just one themed room. Or, you could do anything in between, or nothing at all.
