You can literally turn any wall of your home into your own personal art gallery. Everyone should display some form of art in their home, whether it is a rare oil painting or a cherished drawing from your childs pre-school days. The road block that most encounter is how to properly hang art. The best way to ensure there are no mistakes, and nasty nail holes to fill, is to trace and cut-out the frames outline on paper. Simply tape the paper cut-outs onto your wall, trying numerous placement options until you have the desired outcome.
Your home should speak to who you are. It should be like a personal memoir of your trips, your loves, your life. There is nothing worse than walking into someones home to be greeted by beige walls, brown furniture and one mass produced print on the wall, pretending to be art. The above mentioned room just screams BORING! and we know our readers are far from boring. So, do not be shy when it comes to your home decor.
Other rooms are a bit more difficult, such as sitting rooms or dens. Do not just scatter furnishings about the room first, find a focus or purpose for the room, and then place the furnishings around that focal point. For example a fireplace, a gaming table, a large painting, or even a coffee table that encourages guests to sit and converse.
We will see a monochrome colour trend. Monochromatic does not mean only black and white, it is more about shaping the space with one colour. Lets take grey, the most boring colour you say? Grey is not boring when chosen within the right context. From light grey to the dark graphite, the choice is huge. It is all about choosing the right colour to match the history of your house or retail space that matches perfectly with the existing building elements.
