5 Styling lesson from interior design magazines
It’s not always possible to keep our homes pristine, polished and carefully curated as in those home decor magazines. Because for one, our homes are lived in. Secondly, so much goes into those styling and it will be impossible to keep up regardless of budget. But we could learn a few things from them. Taking the insights to create a space that reflects our character. So here are 5 Styling lesson from interior design magazines.
Less is more
The beauty of minimalism is the simplicity of the concept. It focus on creating a space that feels peaceful, simple, clean and visually appealing. You could apply this concept into your decor easily. Start by getting rid of items that you do not need. If you are renovating, only buy functional items. For example you could buy a decorative alarm clock for your side table. In that way you have a clock and a decorative accessory. Minimalism will lead to less clutter in your home. And the budget benefit of this is, you don’t have to spend money straight away, it starts with downsizing.
Use objects of different shapes and sizes to create a harmonious contrast of items. This could be wall art in different shapes and sizes. Or unique objects such as sculpture in various sizes. Adding texture to your decor will add depth to your styling and give it a polished look. You could add a few throw pillows in varying sizes. Things like handmade textured vase can act as simple statement pieces to your decor. Handmade items tend to have unique characters that will enhance your decor.
When working with an empty room it is an advantage to do things from scratch, but this can be a daunting process. The key is to balance your furniture, choosing the right size based on the size of your room. With wall art it would be helpful buy items of different sizes, so that you can create balanced contrast with the different sizes.
The perfectly imperfect
Yes this is a thing, those magazine stylists take their time to actually create a perfectly imperfect look. This trend is common with bedroom decor. And I love it. I think of all the trends and insights from decor magazines this the one I can achieve without much effort. Just get a few nice quality beddings, declutter your bedroom and you are good to go.
The perfectly imperfect look on the bedroom is more inviting when the beddings are fresh and the room smells good.
Creating a functional interior should be a priority. Be mindful of the items you choose to buy. Because with intentional and purposeful purchases it will be easy to bring the room all together in a harmonious way. For example if you have kids there are some decor items that would not be easy to have. Functional decor accessories will also make your home decluttered. You could use a mirror as a decorative accessory and to give your room more depth. Or you could use a storage basket as a decor accessory and for storage.
