Your home is a sanctuary and should be a reflection of your self. The best way to create spaces with your signature is to add meaningful and eye-catching decorative pieces.
Do you remember that amazing wooden elephant you bought back from your trip to Thailand? Use it as the most important item in your living room. It certainly has a little bit of ‘you’ in it.
Create an environment, where it fetches attention. To do so, buy that amazing lamp you saw in your favourite design store and place it next to it.
Unusual items with different formats or colours are great to spice up your home decor. A small touch here and there can tell a lot about your personal story, preferences and individuality.
Beyond the Basics
In the Middle East, it is very common to rent fully-furnished flats and villas. You pick one with a great interior and that pleases you, until the day you visit your neighbour’s house.
Then you will realise that the decor you thought represented you so well is identical next door. You have exactly the same furniture, vase, cushion and canvas –every little detail is one and the same.
The first thing to do is to go shopping for special items that will translate your personal taste. You can also go on a second trip to search for that special detail that will add the final touch to your place.
Only one of its kind
If you have no clue of what you should choose, look for exclusive items and things that catch your attention. You could add stickers to the wall and place rugs with messages at the entrance.
Add funky ceramic animals in big or small sizes on the shelf. Even a different lighting system can add the sparkle that your home desperately needs.
For the nomads amongst us, it’s important to carry your small belongings with you. These are the significant pieces that warm your heart and make you feel welcome no matter where you are.
