Now that you have addressed room decoration ceiling, walls, floor and bigger pieces in the room decoration, it's time to think about the smaller items and accessories. Bear in mind the goal room decoration to look for natural, uncluttered, simple and inexpensive. First, do an inventory of all of the 'stuff' you have in your closets, kitchen cabinets and other storage areas. You are looking for something that you have never used in this room decoration before, or might be never considered using as an accent or accessory. For example, you might have a lovely and unique piece that has been tucked away in a china cabinet for years. Or, you may come across a throw rug that was put away long ago and fogotten, and it may be perfect for this home decor project. If you come across a piece that is hand painted, hand woven or made from natural material, even better.
With the thought that simple home decorating evokes light, natural and easy to look upon, consider the floor and walls in this area. Do you need a fresh coat of neutral colored paint on the walls and 'Ceiling White' on the ceiling? How about the floor? If your budget can handle it, consider light carpeting, wood floors (natural or faux), or tile, all in lighter, natural finishes. If your budget will not allow for that expense, make sure the floors are sparkling clean. If you enjoy more color in your home decor, then select just one color for the area in a shade that is not overly bright.
Your next step is to carefully consider the upholstery in this room decoration. Is the fabric dated, dark, stained, or generally not pleasant to view? A quick, easy and inexpensive solution is to discover the world of slipcovers. There are so many more choices, styles and fabrics now than there were five or ten years ago. You can find slipcovers for sofas, easy chairs, dining chairs, etc. They are made to fit particular styles of upholstery and look great. This is a wonderful way to create a different look in a room decoration without spending a lot of money. If you choose this room decoration look for fabrics that fit your lifestyle as the first priority,then seek out lighter colors and patterns. These choices, along with the lighter colored walls, will room decoration your room decoration looking fresh, open and uncluttered.
The Art of Simple Home Decorating
Simple home decorating should be just that - simple. By incorporating these suggestions into your decorating project, you will create a room decoration that is uncluttered and understated, and have accomplished this quickly, easily and inexpensively.
Does the term 'Simple Home Decorating' have a particular meaning for you? Many would define it as an easy, quick as well as inexpensive method of home decor. Others might say it creates a natural, uncluttered and understated look. My definition of simple home decorating includes all of the above terms, as the combination of these attributes could create an environment that appeals to just about everyone. Plus, simple home decorating goes hand in hand with decorating on a budget.
If your closets and cabinets are 'bare', try shopping at a discount home decor store and select one or two items that you love, to add to your decor project. Again, keep it simple and understated as you make your selections. When you add these pieces to your room decoration, place them in a way that will emphasize their character and beauty (which is to say, if you purchased a new accent table, do not put so much stuff on it and around it that you can't see the table!)
Bring every piece you have identified into your project room decoration and try to find a place for it that will show the piece off to it's best advantage, with a goal of minimal accessorizing. You want to stay away filling the walls with pictures just to take up space. Instead, try just one or two of your favorite pieces, a picture or mirror you just 'discovered' or an interesting combination of the two. By putting less on the walls and on display, each piece will increase more attention and dimension. For example, you may have placed an antique accent table against a wall in this room decoration. You hung a beautiful oval picture above it, placed a hand painted pitcher on the table with an antique piece of lace as an underlayment, and as a finishing touch placed many natural type of organic room decoration as Baby's Breath in the pitcher (instead of the usual silk flowers). The particular style used as an example may not match your personal decorating taste, but the happen would be the same; simple, understated, inexpensive and natural.
