You don’t need to spend a fortune to make your home look tailored. By using a combination of classic pieces, modern accents and a bit of know-how, it’s easy to give your home that designer feel without spending too much money. Here are ten top designer tips to decorate your home.
 

1: Color & Texture

Don’t avoid using contrasting colors and textures. They can help add depth and interest to your room’s décor.

2: Live Large in Small Spaces

Live in a tiny apartment? Don’t be afraid to go large. Small tiles, small furniture – they can all make a small space look even smaller. Mix large item to balance the space.

3: Decorate with Fresh Flowers

Keep your large expensive pieces classic, whites, beige and earth tones work well. Then brighten the room with more affordable accent pieces you can mix and match. Fresh flowers can add a splash of color, and it’s worth checking out some of the gorgeous flower delivery Brisbane has to offer.

4: Embrace Good Lighting

Layer your lighting. Floor lamps can help with ambient light and lessen the harshness of overhead lighting. More is often better, and so try multiple lamps positioned around the room.

5: Add Your Personality

Transitional Kitchen. Charcoal Gray Transitional Kitchen. kitchen features dark charcoal gray cabinets paired with gray countertops and white grid tiled backsplash.

Kitchen with rustic wood beams accented with round reclaimed wood pendant lights illuminating x-base dining table surrounded by French cafe chairs and bench across from black cabinets framing stainless steel double door refrigerator next to microwave nook.

Not everything has to match. A few pieces with the same styling is fine, but any more than that and you risk your space looking like a display home. Chose furniture and décor that lets your personality shine through.

6: Real Plants

Plants can give a room life and soften harsh corners. Try a potted plant or perhaps a flower delivery by Brisbane service to keep your blooms fresh and looking their best.

7: Don’t Be Afraid of Color

Tie things together with color. The most mishmashed eclectic rooms can come together using colors. Love that blue chair? Try a throw in the same color on the armchair, find a rug or curtains in the same shade, or look for paintings and accessories incorporating the same blue.

8: Paint, Paint & Paint!

Update old fixtures and fittings inexpensively with paint. Just about anything can be painted these days, including tiles, laminate bench tops and even enamelled baths and sinks. It’s a great way to update older buildings on a budget.

9: Subtly Themed Rooms

Master Bedroom. MASTER BEDROOM: Bed: Overstock | Nighstands: Garage sale | Silver lamps: home goods | Rug: Rugs usa | Bedding: Pottery barn | Framed new england map: home goods | Wooden bench: Garage sale | Dresser: Consignment shop. The Picket Fence Projects.

Use a theme to help chose pieces and pull together a room. For example, a nautical theme could incorporate blue, red and white, stripes, lighting, paintings, ocean-themed decorations, hessian and or keep it as neutral as you wish.

10: Wallpaper

Wallpaper can be used for more than just walls. Try laying it under a glass cover on a desk, cover fronts of drawers or the risers on steps, and on the backing of bookshelves. You can also use it with spray mounts and contact to make art. Using wallpaper is an easy way to complement a room’s existing décor.

10: Plan Before You Do It

Lastly, don’t be afraid to experiment, and always include your own personality into a room’s design. If you’re moving into a new house, it’s a good idea to live in the space for at least a few weeks before undergoing any major redecorating. That way you’ll make sure that whatever you chose suits both the space and your style.

 

Also never buy something just to fill a space thinking you’ll replace it or fix it later… it never happens, you stop seeing it. Have a cohesive plan and then execute. It’s better to have an empty space than the wrong piece.
