It’s nearly five months since I last penned down my thoughts on keeping home decor simple and today I add a dash of purity to it. I have inherited my decor sensibilities from my mother who is essentially an artist and excels in all the mediums and fields she picked up by her choice. Her constant endeavour to involve me to do little floral arrangements, making sure that the house looked welcoming at all times and not only when guests arrived, instilled a sense of adding personal touch with minimalism at best. One thing that I have carried from my yesteryear experiences is the knack for delicacy and beauty.
Decorating home should involve a lot of fun and one of the mantras that I follow is to keep it simple and pure. Fewer the elements easier to work. Collectibles often get lost in the crowd that we generally tend to create. Well-kept spaces with thoughtful placements often help to avoid the above. Carefully curated pieces lead to effortless grace seen in a room.
To achieve the same, one can concentrate on few major accessories being displayed as a single collection. It will be nice to avoid sharp contrasts in the elements involved at the same time not ignoring the finish and colour of your woodwork.
Ornamental carving adds up to the design quotient but one can avoid such details if a minimalist look is the target. Also, furniture with straight lines bring in flexibility and help in playing with other accessories.
Simplicity doesn’t mean that we ignore the details. That’s the charm of such layouts. A great deal of effort is concealed behind them. Similar fabrics and textures bring in continuity helping a great deal in arranging. Re-position the furniture, use pieces that are compatible to each other and don’t follow a certain price tag. Decor could be an effort to showcase a smooth blend of styles accommodating different price tags… :)) Let the home speak about you.
Much love and happy decorating… :))
