Mom and home decor, these two terms might not sound like they complement each other, thanks to kids and their antics. But the fact is that having a disorderly home makes everything even more difficult. With the onset of the pandemic, we all have been spending more time at home. While on one hand, it does mean a messier and unorganised home, but on the other, it also reflects a need to create spaces around us that enhance warmth, comfort and positivity. Keep your home smelling fresh with these potpourri decor ideas.
The first simple home decorating idea if you want your house to look clean and classy is to declutter by purging the belongings you truly don’t need. Ask yourself- if the object is used? Is it needed? Is it easy to store when not in use? You don’t have to go all “Marie Kondo” and ask if the item brings you joy, but you get the gist of it.
The most classic and simplest of home decor ideas is adding a green touch to your home. One of my go-to options when looking at freshening up the look and feel of my home is to have fresh flowers in the house. You don’t have to spend a lot on flowers to make your kitchen or living area look great. Have some fun learning flower arranging and playing around with the flowers and greenery to add some class to your home decor.
There’s nothing like having a signature wall that adorns bits of your life. Add a pop of colour to that wall and put up adorable moments of your family from different occasions. Pick up frames of different colours, mix and match the size and fill up your feature wall. I personally love family photos and get them in canvas, so much of our walls are covered with family canvas. Remember, there’s no rule to be followed here. Abstract patterns look great.
This might be literally the hardest possible thing for any person to do. I feel having a coffee table is an amazing feature in a living room, but it’s also just a giant catchall for all the crap you drag in and out on a day to day basis. The kitchen counters are the hardest to keep tidy because we tend to just drop stuff where we hang out, which is usually the kitchen and the living room. If you want your house to keep clean then come up with an alternative system for your kitchen and dining/ coffee tabletop.
Cushions may not be one of the first things you think about when you redecorate your home, but they can give some of your rooms an entirely new vibe. For example, if your current living room looks bland and boring, adding a couple of modern cushions with bright colours could spruce your living room right up! When choosing cushions for your living room or bedroom, you still need to take your current interior into account. For example, if you have a traditional interior, it is essential to stick with traditional colours and patterns.
