Homeowners have so many themes to choose from. Whether you take a cue from a location, design style, season, or even a beloved kid’s character there are five tips you should follow when working a theme into your home decor.
Home Decor Theme Rule #1: Working with Color.
One of the easiest ways to bring a theme’s feeling into your home is through color. Take a beach theme for example, the palette echoes the colors of nature: big sky blues, earthy browns, sea kelp greens and turquoise waters. Through the simple use of paint, you can set the stage for other beach touches throughout the home.
Home Decor Theme Rule #2: Use Artwork.
Displaying artwork is an excellent way to set a mood in a home based on a theme. The artwork can be literal or even abstract to add personality into the room. You can find originals, as well as more affordable prints and posters to grab a buyer or guest’s eye.
Home Decor Theme Rule #3: Have a Focal Point.
Home Decor Theme Rule #4: Use Small Pieces for a Big Impact.
You don’t need a lot of space or a huge budget to pull off a theme. You can change out throw pillows, table accessories, rugs or even knobs to add your theme’s personality. Sometimes little touches can have a bigger impact than an overall transformation.
Home Decor Theme Rule #5: Add Decor that’s Natural & Authentic to the Theme.
Keep your eye out for materials that are natural to your theme and use pieces that are authentic. By using natural elements in a home it will create a warm and welcoming feel into the space. For generations humans love the natural and organic appeal of elements that make them feel calm, at peace and above all welcomed home.
