How To Find Your Personal Style For Home Décor

Your home is the perfect place to show off your personal style. Where else can you let people see your unique personality and be as comfortable as possible? This sounds like it would be an easy thing to do, but in reality, it can be hard. How do you know what your style is? And when you do know, how can you create a cohesive, attractive, yet personal home décor that works? Here's some ideas on how.


Start A Pinterest Board 

Pinterest is an amazing website when it comes to getting ideas for your home décor that will connect with your own personal style as well. When you make a Pinterest account, you will be able to create a board (or multiple boards) where you can save any images you see online that appeal to you. You might have one board for your entire home, or perhaps you would split it, and have one board for each room.

As your browse online you can ‘pin’ any images that appeal, and then you can arrange your board(s) so that colors, styles, themes, and so on match and look good. In this way, you’ll know how you want your home to look before you start spending money on furnishings, paint, wallpaper, or carpeting. While you’re working on your Pinterest board you’ll come across all kinds of new ideas, and because you’re free to mix and match as you see fit, you can create the perfect interior décor virtually before you spend any money or do any work. 

 

Buy One Anchor Piece 

If you don’t know where to start, it might be because you’re trying to do too much all at once. You’re trying to redecorate an entire property with your personal style and this can feel somewhat overwhelming or even impossible. As with every large task, it’s best to break this down into smaller areas, either by picking one room at a time or finding one anchor piece that you tie every other design decision to.

This latter idea can often be the best one. This way, you only need to focus on one thing – finding the ideal anchor piece – and then every other decision you make can stem from this one. The beauty of concentrating your efforts on just one piece is that you can take the time to find the perfect thing that you know you absolutely love, whether that’s a large piece of furniture some art, a rug, or even searching for indoor plants online that might bring some nature into your home. 

 

Visit A Designer Show Home 

You’ll find a lot of interior designers create show homes to give people an idea of what their designs could look like in the right space. You might be able to visit some ‘in real life’, but even if you can’t there will be plenty online to browse through. Not only can you find a style that truly resonates with what your personality feels like, but you’ll get some great ideas about how to put different items together, and how to make the most of your space. 

Visiting a designer show home can give you a lot of ideas, but you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get the same effect. Once you know what kind of thing you’re looking for, you should be able to find less expensive alternatives if your budget is smaller. It just means a little extra planning, but if you’re changing the interior décor of your home and you want it to work for you for the long term, then it’s worth spending that time for a great result. 

 

Look At Your Current Décor 

Although you might think you need to change every single thing about your home’s interior to make it truly yours and to match with your style, that may not really be the case. It might be that there are some elements you would be happy to keep, and that would work well with the changes you’re about to make. 

Take an inventory of everything around your home, and when you find something you want to keep in place, you’ll know what kind of look you should be going for when you change everything else. It could even be that you only need to change one or two things, or simply add something to the room (or take something away) for your personality to shine through.
