Are you looking for home decorating tips to help you feel more focused on your latest decorating project? Here are a few ideas to get you “back on track.”
First of all, where are all of your home décor accessories? Are they scattered among several closets and drawers around the house? Consider setting up an “accessories closet” which will hold all of the items you are not currently using. This might include such objects as candles, candle holders, vases, bowls, floral arrangements, and trays. The “accessories closet” should also hold practical, everyday necessities such as scissors, tape and floral-arranging materials as well as a tool-box containing common household tools.
Imagine how easy it will be to change the home decor in a room when the seasons change. Just look in the “accessories closet” for a touch of fall decor to replace that summer flower arrangement. Now that makes home decorating fast and easy!
Another home decorating tip is to add height to accessories on a table which makes them more attractive to the eye. Try using a small stack of books mixed in with other home decor to add interest to the display. You might also set a small novelty item on top of the books.
Twigs in pottery vases make quite a statement and are very easy to assemble. These “bare branches” might be bamboo, willow twigs, cattails or unique, rustic branches purchased in a floral or craft shop. A large vase and branch arrangement looks great sitting on the floor and can be an attractive “filler” for a bare corner.
Keep in mind the home decorating rule of arranging home décor in odd numbers. Three small baskets on a table, five small framed prints on a wall, and seven tall, slim candle holders over the fireplace–you get the idea! Arrangements of three, five, or seven are more attractive and pleasing to the eye than groupings of two, four, or six objects.
Enjoy seeing your decorating projects take on a new life by mixing ingenuity and imagination to make home decorating easy and fun.
