Making Your Home An Expression Of Yourself

On June 2, 2017 by Himanshu Shah

Thanks to Pinterest and Better Homes and Gardens magazine, the latest decorating trends are always at our fingertips. Of course, trendy doesn’t always mean that it’s perfect for your particular budget, taste, or lifestyle. You can make your home an expression of yourself by finding a balance between trendy decorating ideas and unique décor that reflects who you are.


The Right Wall Color
You know how they say purse contents can say a lot about you? Well, so can walls. The right wall color can help create just the right atmosphere in a room. It can make a room feel cozy, lively, serene, energized or stir a variety of other emotions. If paint is too plain for you (no judgement here), maybe try an accent wall with wallpaper with a design or theme that reflects something you like. And don’t forget wall art—that can be the biggest statement of them all!

Personal Collection

Personal Collection
Turning your personal collection of books, music, collectible figurines or other items into a point of interest is a great form of self-expression.

  • Books: A few coffee table books on a subject you’re passionate about or a bookcase filled with your book collection would be an attractive way to personalize your décor.
  • Music: A music corner with your favorite music attractively displayed, framed photos of your favorite musicians or a framed piece of music and other details related to music could become a favorite place to relax.
  • Collectibles: An attractive display of items that you enjoy collecting can easily become a decorative feature in any room.

Keep in mind that when your treasures are on display, they can become easy targets for thieves. But if you have a security system, 24/7 monitoring like what you get with ADT provides comfort through constant connect security systems.
