In today’s blog we are going to dive into how you can showcase your personality through home décor. At The Interior Designer we love the idea of your home being an extension of you and being able to incorporate this style into different elements of your home. You can combine your personality and what you love into your home interior design and build the home of your dreams.
Let’s look at some examples…
Are you someone that loves food, loves entertaining and having people in your home? This would be great fit for you to showcase this side of your personality through your kitchen and appliances. This gives you the opportunity to showcase and display items that appeal to you and share the décor that matches your personality. Choose pieces that show off this side of your personality and be sure to make the kitchen the heart of the home.
Perhaps you are an Author, Content Creator or an avid reader? You could display this side of your personality through beautiful bookshelves filled with your favourite books. It almost feels like your own library…inside your home. Even though we are living in the digital age, no e-book or app can compare to the feeling of a hard-covered, tangible book in your hands. You can create a feel of a library in your home to showcase this personality trait and have stylish focal points featured in this space, such as a fireplace, reading corner, desk etc. You can create your very own home library that shows a beautiful space that is both well-designed and well-read.
If you are a lover of art and want to show off this side of your personality, why not create spaces to showcase the pieces of art that you love most. Use lighting to really bring them to life and illustrate this strong artistic side.
Perhaps you love movies and everything about a specific movie, you could choose an iconic movie such as The Great Gatsby and showcase elements of this bold, beautiful, stylish Art Deco design. You could do this by adding geometric shapes and graphic patterns, glass and mirrors and pieces with polished chrome or brass throughout the home.
Many of our clients adore showcasing different textures and materials and pieces they have picked up from their travels. This then becomes a showcase for their life and memories and many call this a Boho Interior Décor style. This is a perfect fit for you if you love to have all of your memories around you.
There are many other ways that you can incorporate your personality into your home interior design, the opportunities are endless. Did you grow up in the English countryside and now live here in Australia and want to add floral fabrics, paintings of English flowers and blooms and botanicas? Or you have a deep love for the ocean and want to bring nautical themes into your home design and styling with rustic furnishings and a blue and white palette throughout? There truly are endless opportunities…
Above all (we say this a lot) you need to create an interior design style that matches YOU and your LIFE. You are not designing a museum, but a home that you can sit and enjoy a glass of red wine whilst reading a book in your own library, or having guests sit at your kitchen islander as you create dinner and they see how much you adore entertaining, or perhaps sit on your balcony and watch the sun set over the ocean?
