How to create your home interior.
One day at a time…….it’s the way we have had to learn in the past year as we try to balance our lives.
With the restraints on travel and being in lockdown, homeowners are transforming their homes into spaces that inspire and give room for quiet reflection. By using pattern, textures, colour and style, your home can be transformed from dreary to fresh country charm.
Cottage interior’s focus is on sustainable materials, seeking to fulfil individuality and uniqueness. A wanting of a simpler life, in creating harmony with nature, a desire for more handmade artisan items. Remember the days when grandmas used to bake their own bread or reading your favourite children’s novel that had passed on for generations?
Homes with character.
This style best suits a home with architectural character, typically wooden floorboards and wooden doors. Browns are introduced in the form of natural woods and create a sense of harmony by mixing old tradition with new modern revamped pieces. Repurposed woods and aged solid wood pieces are sanded down to give new character resembling pieces from days of old. Brown is the colour of sturdiness and security, it creates a sense of strength and being committed.
Country interiors are popular for the most, with the option of utilizing existing pieces and mixing them with new. Deciding which pieces enhance the interior décor and which are no longer needed. Seek out handmade items, like textured woven baskets, or rugs. You may need sprucing up with new scatter cushions on your couch in fresh floral patterns or mellowed tones of peach amber, in way of natural cotton throws, or table linen. Wall papers in gentle patterns add a sense of homely ambience. Arrange fresh cut flowers or dried flowers in handmade ceramic vases, or vintage tins. Add green plants, inviting the outside in. Create a cozy reading corner or style a breakfast nook. Your home becomes a place of quite reflection and a place to recharge.
