It’s designer darling!

Designing our homes is a process that allows us all to flex our creative muscles like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. But despite those joys, it’s moments of excruciating indecision that leave us bibbing and bobbing with numerous questions.

What colour palette to use? Is this small space too small for my quirk and grand gestures? And if so, how do I make it better? Or, perhaps you might be thinking, this space is too big to fill, wouldn’t it be easier to consult a designer? Well, yes. Yes, it would definitely be easier to consult a designer. After all, they’re seasoned professionals who have seen and done it all. But, it wouldn’t be nearly as satisfying as you getting your hands dirty and letting your creative juices flow to call the space yours. 

But fret not, dearest readers, we’ve scoured the internet, read all our favourite interior design blogs, and flipped the pages of home decor magazines to compile some pretty Pinterest-worthy ideas from the most coveted of interior designers.  

Au Natural: 

Nothing is better than natural lighting when it comes to interior design. It’s the cardinal rule that every interior designer swears by. And if you’ve ever worked with an interior designer, you know they’ll always find ways to utilize as much natural space as possible. 

Opposites Attract: 

Designing small spaces can be tricky. Not only do you want it to look good and adhere to your aesthetic, but you also want the space to look spacious. According to interior designer Ashley Lavonne Walker, placing large pieces of art inside a small room acts as an anchor for our eyes, drawing our attention away from the size of the room and rather the grandeur of the wall art

Patterns & Rugs:

According to Sean Scherer, you can never have enough patterns and rugs. By layering rugs and patterns in a single space, you’re adding visual intrigue and dimension to the room driven by a whimsical flair, allowing you to be as fearless and daring as you want while decorating.

Throw On A Blanket: 

It’s the little things that have the biggest impact.  

Have you ever noticed how all the living and bedroom posts we’ve pinned on our Pinterest have cute throw blankets resting at the end of the bed or hanging at the side of an armchair? That’s because this simple, yet highly effective trick can quickly transform a space to look ultra-luxe and cosy. Furthermore, if you’re someone who isn’t sure about colour and prints in your space, adding a throw blanket is a great way to experiment.

Furniture As Art: 

According to Studio Dorion, an interior design firm based in Brooklyn, USA, you don’t need to fill your space up with decor objects to make a statement. Rather if you look for truly unique furniture pieces such as lamps, chaises, or even cabinets, they can become the je ne sais quoi that you’ve been looking for.  

Paint The Floor Red:

That’s right! You read that correctly. Except you can paint your floor any colour you want. If you have natural flooring, such as wooden, don’t be afraid to spruce your space up by painting it. While it may seem avant-garde and totally obnoxious, it’s a very fun way to make the items in the space stand out. 

Fill The Shelves:

When it comes to books, if you’ve got them then flaunt them. According to designer Patrick Mele, if you ever want a room to feel like it’s really been lived and give it a sense of character, then installing a grand bookcase and filling it to the brim is an effective strategy.

Priortize Comfort & Functionality: 

At the end of the day, the space you’re designing is going to be your home. The key word being home. Therefore, it must be a place that not only looks and feels good, but it must make you feel good. That’s why, it’s important to take steps to incorporate pieces of furniture that and comfortable and functional. You don’t want a sofa that looks expensive and sleek, but is uncomfortable to sit on, you’ll never use it.

Bold Colours:

If you are looking for a simple yet out-of-the-box method that allows you to create a captivating home, then try opting for a bold colour palette choice. It’s a method that, if done right, can create some awe-striking spaces, without feeling like you need to break the bank on designer furniture, overcrowding the space with decor objects like vases and candle holders, and looking for unique art pieces. Visit our blog to know about bold colour schemes.

A Touch Of Gaia:

Nature is something that we all like adding to our space. Whether it's grand indoor plants that create your very own jungle safari haven or if you’ve got views into a lavish garden, incorporating natural elements can truly enhance the ambiance.
