It’s that time again.. Fall is just around the corner. With fall comes colder weather, and that of course means spending more time indoors. Here are five easy tips to get a more balanced home this season!
1) Forgetting about Color
Have you ever entered into a room that felt cold and dull? That feeling was probably attributed to a lack of life: a.k.a. a lack of color. Incorporate decor pieces such as accent pillows, throw blankets, or bright flowers to create a more welcoming space.
2) Clutter! Clutter Everywhere!
A cluttered home can evoke stressful vibes. If the items in your space do not complement each other or take up too much space, opt to put them into storage. Remember: less is more.
3) Hanging Pictures Too High
If you or a guest have to tilt their head up to look at a picture on a wall, it is likely hung too high. Pictures should be hung at a comfortable eye level, similar to how they would be displayed in a museum. If you’re hanging photos or wall art above furniture pieces, 10 inches above a dresser, table, or bed is the perfect height.
4) Where’s the Rug?
Especially in rooms with a hardwood floor, area rugs have a unique way of bringing an entire space together. In large rooms, make sure that the rug touches most of the furniture; if it’s too small, it will likely appear isolated and out of place. A quality rug will anchor the furniture in its room, creating a cozy, welcoming, and intimate space.
5) Ignoring the Foyer
The foyer makes the first impression when guests enter your home. Design the entrance with a tall mirror, a vintage table, or a small plant to add some personality to this small – yet important – space.
