A beautiful home is something to be proud of. After all, you’ve worked to buy it and maintain it. It’s a place to bring up your family in style and comfort, and a place where you can entertain and impress your guests. The key to having a beautiful home, of course, lies in interior design, so it’s important to keep your rooms, fresh, on trend and up to date. If you want to take your home to the very next level, however, it helps to have an interior design that’s unique and tailored to you and the things that are important to you. Here are three easy ways that you can do just that.
Show Off Your Family Crest
Tracing your family tree can be a fascinating hobby, and if you go back far enough the chances are that you’ll eventually arrive at a descendant who was the proud owner of a family crest. That’s something you can be proud of too, as it represents hundreds of years of history, and shows that you came from a family whose achievements were far from ordinary. Family crests, also known as heraldic crests and coats of arms, are often spectacularly beautiful too and they can look very stylish when embroidered onto your home furnishings. If you aren’t sure of your family tree, or whether you have a family crest, a professional genealogist can do the research for you, and it can cost less than you think.
Beautiful Photo Collages
Nothing in life makes you as happy as your own family, which is why most people have framed photographs of their loved ones throughout their home. You can make this much more stylish, however, and much more visually striking, by turning these adored pictures into a unique photo collage. Free and easy to use templates can be found online that allow you to turn photographs stored onto your computer into stunning collages, and you can then print and frame them or even have them transferred onto canvas for a wall mounted picture that truly represents your home and your family.
One of the secrets to always looking stylish on a personal level is to find which colors match your personality and your skin tone and then wear clothing that is based predominantly upon those colors. That principle applies to your home as well; your rooms will look that much better when the walls and furnishings match or complement the colors that you always wear. That doesn’t mean that they have to be exactly the same color, as sometimes opposites look perfect when shown next to each other. To achieve this perfect synchronicity of clothing and interior design, take a look at a color wheel and discover which shades would look best in your rooms.
These three little touches can be inexpensive to implement, but they can have a dramatic effect that everyone will notice. Photo collages, family crests, and complementary colors will each on their own add an extra touch of elegance, but when added together the results can be breathtaking. Make your home unique, and you’ll wake up happy every day.
