Styling your home isn’t as easy for some as it is for others. Many of us have an eye for detail, but what we all have in common is knowing what we love and how we want our home to feel. If you want to inject a bit of style into your home then there are a few things you could consider to help you do it. Here are four easy steps to get you started. 
Work out the colours you want
While the colour choices for decoration are very much a personal thing, you also need to consider how they will match and flow with one another. The last thing you want is something that will clash and could end up being more headache probing than a relaxing environment. If you want a particular place, like your bedroom, to be relaxing then consider more pastel shades of the colours than anything too bright. If you want something to engage with you or be more vibrant, a brighter colour choice might be on the cards. Also, try and be aware of trends and color choices, they can go in and out of fashion quite quickly. It will always be advisable to stick with something timeless or something that you truly love. 

Think about feature walls
A feature wall can be the perfect choice for adding some personality to your room, with very little creativity involved. A feature wall can be anything, but the main thing would be to be the place where your eye is drawn to the most. Some people use one wall and add a brighter colour or something more contrasting to the other colors in the room. You could also consider wallpapering one of the walls in a different print or something very edgy. Another consideration would be to create a photographic memory wall. This is where you pick out lot’s of frames, either the same style and size or all different. 

Don’t forget the soft furnishings and personal touches
Soft furnishing, cushions and blankets will always make your home feel more inviting. But, the way you position them and style them is what you have to think about most. We all love a scatter cushion on your bed, so think about the way you position them. The same can be said for any living spaces you have. Your home needs to be like a home, as obvious as it sounds. So don’t forget the personal touches that make it unique to you. Perhaps consider making up a chair, or customising something you love and giving it a fresh new look. For example, a chair can be made comfier with the addition of foam from websites like and then reupholstered. Make sure your personality is invested throughout your home. 

Clutter is not your friend
Finally, don’t forget that clutter around your home is not your friend. Consider checking out Marie Kondo’s website for information about decluttering your spaces and lives. It can be life changing. Try and have a place for things that add up. Like letter or magazines. It’s always easier to relax in a tidy home than have a messy mind brought on by your environment. 

I hope this guide will help you with your home design and styling.
