4 Overlooked Home Decorating Ideas

Home Decorating Ideas

Home decorating is a living art, a form of creation which isn’t static, but rather lives and evolves and grows with the nature of the life that occurs all around it. It can change, drastically, and as it does the very atmosphere of a room can change, lending energy to one space, or creating lethargy in another, supporting communication and socializing in one area, and developing a cozy cocoon of privacy in another. People share why you should choose the A+ Construction & Remodeling.

There are a number of clever home decorating ideas that can be used to fill your spaces with interest and life. These can range from a simple rearranging of elements within a space, all the way up to complex interior redesigns that will actually alter the architectural nature of the room itself.

1. Stenciling

Stenciling is one home decorating idea that is relatively simple, and quite popular. It allows you to trace images or patterns onto your wall, using a guide to keep your hand steady. This can be done with paint, colored pencils or even ink, depending on the effect you are trying to create, and is a great way to create elaborate and intriguing decorative patterns up and down and across your walls.

While there are a variety of stencils which can be purchased at your local crafting store, you are also able to create your own using acetone sheets cut precisely with a craft knife. You can even develop multi-colored designs, drawing a single shape, and then cutting stencils to match each piece of the shape. After the cutting is complete, each layer of color can be placed on one at a time to develop a multi-layered, multi-hued creation. This should, of course, all be done using a vertical and horizontal guideline to ensure that everything matches up.

2. Stamping

Stamping is another idea for home decorating which is relatively simple. This involves purchasing a rubber stamp from your local craft store, and then creating patterns with that stamp across your walls. This is often done in trailing lines running from one end of a wall to another, but can also be placed according to twisting or shifting patterns, or even waves. The use of a guide is especially important to ensure that your stamped patterns stay consistent across the wall.

There are a number of different stamping ideas that can be used. Stars can be stamped into twisting patterns like shooting comets twirling along a wall. Stamps of butterflies in different sizes can trail along a door frame. You can even have schools of fish, possibly even in different complementary hues, swimming along the molding of a wall or trailing the lines and creases in your home.

3. Sponging

Another great idea for adding color to your home is stamping. This is a relatively easy way to add interest to an entire space, bathing it in unique and random bursts of colored patterns that can spread out across the surfaces of a room. This creates not only a sense of color but also the illusion of texture, lending a sense of warmth and enfolding arms to the nature of whichever room it is used in.

Sponging is simply a matter of taking a natural, uncut sponge, or ripping a regular sponge, in order to create an erratic edge. This sponge is then dipped in paint, and then pressed lightly against the walls in random patterns. This is often done in layers, with either many coats of the same color or several coats of complimentary colors lying one atop the other.

4. Texture

Many people overlook texture when decorating their homes, but it is actually a very powerful and subtle element, which can be used to create a sense of comfort which is more palpable because you can actually reach out and touch it.

Texture can be an especially important decorating idea in the winter when the cold and chill of the frozen world threatens to encroach upon the comfort of your home. Here the use of blankets, soft pillows, and other thick textures can help to combat not only the actual, physical cold but also the bleak and chilled perception of the world at this time of year.

Just looking at a thick rug will instantly draw to mind thoughts of touching similar objects, of the warmth, the comfort, the sensation of experiencing heat wrapping around you like a cloak. By accessing these memories, your mind makes you, to some extent, relieve them, pulling up simulations of those sensations which will wash across the backdrop of your subconscious mind.

Finding ideas for home decorating is as simple as opening up your eyes to the possibilities of each space. While watching decorative shows, or reading magazines on the subject can help to inspire you, it is the inherent nature of the room being decorated which you should take your cues from, matching the nature of various elements to the needs and functions of the area.

This week’s positive word is

NOTICE

By Victoria J.Brown

www.victoria-brown.com

You may be thinking that this isn’t really a positive word … it’s just a word!

Well it depends how you look at the world, and if you were one of those people who did think, ‘Notice, is just a word,’ then please have a read of this post and really think about what you actually notice about you and the world around you.

Notice Picture 1

When you start noticing the world around you, you’ll notice how a word such as ‘notice’ can be very positive. How noticing life can be one of the most positive things you can do for yourself.

The world is a beautiful and wonderful place if you just stop for a second and notice it, you will see it too. We are often so focused on our ‘to-do list’ that we take for granted all the good that surrounds us, we become to expect rather than noticing.

The world is full of busy … busy people, busy lives … busy, busy, busy – especially at this time of the year! People don’t have time to stop and notice the world around them. There’s so much to do … but there is actually so much to see.

If you feel this sounds like you … have you noticed? Have you noticed how stressed you feel? Take 5 or 10 minutes out to just breathe! 5 or 10 minutes of your time will not damage you as much as not taking that time to breathe.

Breathe. Look around you. Listen. Use all your senses to notice your world. It’s wonderful to be here and alive, we must not take these days for granted.

 Be thankful always and take notice.
