TIPS & TRICKS // TO TURN YOUR HOUSE INTO A HOME

HERE’S HOW TO HARNESS YOUR INNER DESIGNER TO CREATE A HOME THAT REFLECTS YOUR PERSONALITY – BLOG ARTICLE BY: Wanted

Turning your house into a home isn’t an easy task. Furniture, appliances and everything in-between are things to consider when creating the perfect space that showcases your personality. Here are a few tips to help harness your inner designer and make your house feel like a home. 

Showcase your memories

A picture says a thousand words, and what better way to paint your home than with memories that say the most about you. Hanging up a few pictures on your wall adds a personal and authentic touch to your living space. Revisiting your memories every time you enter your space brings a sense of comfort and nostalgia that has been perfectly crafted by you. A quirky collection of picture frames can help add a twist to the memories you’ve chosen to display around your home. 

A signature scent 

A personalised scent that you associate with your home can add a welcoming touch whenever you enter. Incense, scented candles or fresh flowers of your choice can help create this scent and cleanse the air, especially if you live in a small apartment. 

Continuity in your home

Rooms vary in size and use which can often make them feel disjointed and closed off by their doors. Using an area rug that runs through different areas of your home can help tie these spaces together and make your home appear as a more holistic unit. Choosing the same colour scheme throughout your home is also a way to add a particular theme that suits your tastes.

Indoor greenery

Adding plants to your home freshens the air and changes the scenery when moving from room to room. Buying small, indoor plants to brighten your area is inexpensive but requires some care to keep your plants alive. Fake plants are also a creative alternative to styling your home — they add a serene sense of the outdoors without the worry of when they need to be watered next. Remember to dust them too.
