With festivals done for the year, I am enjoying this pleasant November morning with a nip in the air indicating me that I should be ready to welcome the winters. Though, in my part of the world, the winters are not harsh and cold but it does allow me to enjoy the warmth of light shawls and joy of holding a hot cup of coffee to keep the chill off. Also, the coming months would definitely see a change in the way our homes look for a lot of warm colours adorn the space along with cosy beds and sofas to enjoy those winter conversations. I remember how winters were a great way to roll down more carpets and namdas in our home back in my childhood.
Today my point of emphasis is how to style your homes the way you wish to. Often, we get into comparison modes but no two homes are ever the same. We all have different perceptions and a unique way to put things together. A very basic fact has to be understood in totality that our past associations and love of different art forms plays an important role in deciding what goes in our homes. This compels me to appreciate design ideas coming from all sort of backgrounds.
Home decorating should be like a blissful time, a time that is enjoyed to its fullest while transforming the concrete walls into a peaceful abode. This activity could be repeated whenever one desires to as home decoration never has a full stop.
To be inspired by someone else’s design perceptions or to follow someone whom you admire is of no harm. But the interest develops when we bring our own design to work and make them more active. I personally believe that this helps in final results being more genuine and close to personalities.
Mostly, all the design ideas have been applied earlier and the present is a simple derivative of the past. This often becomes a point where it’s a quick decision to either follow the trail in the same and exact manner or to take the next step towards a path incorporating new ideas. I would surely recommend the latter as copying ideas is a sheer waste of your own potential.
Digital moodboard or simple pin-up boards are your easy rescue to start with. Do have your ideas placed together so you can decide on further steps to be taken. Let it be a simple juxtaposition of your favourite pictures of nature or the beautiful architecture you came across. Simple things around you can lead to inspiration ranging from deciding on your colour palette to a certain curve on the furniture piece…This step helps to pull together a room of your liking and for that matter outdoor spaces are of equal significance.
One thing that I wanted to share with my readers is to understand the importance of developing your own style. Never let self-potential to be ignored and go for a waste. Style!..It’s applicable in all the areas of our lives and its relevance in the spaces that we occupy can surely be not ignored…
