5 Interior Design Resolutions You Should Make
January 5, 2021
Creating a unique space to call home is a personal and on-going process. As one continues to evolve as a person, their environment should evolve as well. Your home should be a reflection of you and your desires, a source of inspiration, as well as a relaxing escape. To accomplish this, each design process should take on an exceptionally personal and intimate nature. Here are five interior design resolutions we’ve gathered to help you evolve your environment and bring life into your home.
Take a Risk - Add Color.
Color is a great way to completely change the look, feeling, and energy of a space. Using bold colors in the home will quickly revamp the design of a space and add an exciting impact. Choose colors that reflect your personality or ambitions. If you’re looking for more tranquility in your life, a calming color palette may be best. Soft blues and greens are beautiful, tranquil, and grounding. However, if you are searching for a more fun and energetic environment, bold colors will create a fresh and invigorating feeling.
Go with your Design Intuition.
Everyone has their own style, ambitions, and preferences. Practice listening to that little voice inside that encourages the decisions that are right for you. Trust your gut and let your interior design process completely reflect your desires. If the latest and greatest design trends don’t resonate with you, then you don’t have to conform! One of the most enjoyable parts of our work is getting to know the clientele and discovering their personal style. The creativity and individuality that goes into each project is what makes the design process so fulfilling.
Less is More - Consider Minimalism.
Bold design and maximalism has its place. But there is something so powerful about living in a minimalist environment. The decluttering movement makes space for beauty and a peaceful mentality in the home. Purge items that take up physical and emotional space, making your environment a wonderful refuge from your busy life.
“Keep only those things that speak to your heart. Then take the plunge and discard all the rest. By doing this, you can reset your life and embark on a new lifestyle.” - Marie Kondo
Go for quality, not quantity.
When choosing furniture for your home, select something that is durable, well-made, and timeless. A room full of decor and furniture isn’t necessarily well designed. A big part of interior design is selecting quality pieces that have a long functional and stylistic lifeline.
Be inspired in new ways.
Keep your design ingenuity and motivation going by searching for inspiration outside of your usual sources. Design trends and fad styles have their places, but there's so much more design potential that often goes unnoticed. Whether it's wallpapered ceilings, quirky accessories, or a bold monochromatic color scheme, there are endless opportunities when it comes to designing your dream home.
