You want your home to be what your family wants and needs. Adding key details and features will assist in giving this space look and feel that you want to make it a warm and inviting atmosphere. Some of the actions you could take could include: accessorize
Add accessories that say comfort such as a soft, warm throw tossed casually on the sofa along with plump, soft pillows. Purchase soft towels for the bathrooms and add plush mats to the powder room floors. Populated area and throw rugs on hardwood and tile floors will add even more appeal.
Add Personal Touches
Make your family your priority by displaying their artwork all around the home. Children’s drawings, teenager’s sculptures, and grandmother’s needlepoint can all find a home somewhere in residence. Take casual and fun photos and blow them up into sepia or black and white artwork. Line the stairwell with baby pictures and have guests guess who each photo is of. Have each bedroom reflect the preferences and personalities of each occupant. Paint them in their favorite colors and add distinctive furnishings.
Colour is the vehicle that will bring your home to life. Off-white walls don’t do very much for any house. The tones and shades do not necessarily have to be bright colors, just colors that bring about an inviting and calm atmosphere. Choose tones such as a soft yellow, seafoam green, robin’s egg blue, or chocolate brown. For infants’ rooms, primary colors will work as well as pastels such as pink or blue. After you know the gender of your baby from “A Child’s Dream,” you will be able to choose a color to match the infant’s gender as well as your personal preferences.
Purchase Plants and Flowers
Bring the outdoors in with the addition of live foliage. Corn plants, ferns, and other potted plants will give your home extra life and pizzazz. If it is the budget, place fresh-cut flowers in critical areas to bring color and interest to the house. Potted flowering plants will do just as well and will last longer for more enjoyment.
Utilize Wood and Stone
The use of wood throughout the home will add a depth of strength and feeling. It will give a more natural look and feel to all areas of the house. Use wood by adding rafters, natural wood floors, and wooden furniture such as tables, chairs, shelves, and cabinets. Stone is also a “strong” addition to any residence. Utilize it in fireplaces and even as flooring in entrances and on patios.
Adding these details will make your family feel comfortable and cozy within the walls of your home. They will see it as a refuge and a place to relax and enjoy their familiar and intimate surroundings.
