There are no strict rules when it comes to interior design, but everyone can always do with a few hints and tips. There are so many ways you can bring your personality into your new home, from adding a pop of colour to some beautiful accessories.
We thought we'd share some of our top tips for making your space into your own unique sanctuary…
They are so many amazing things you can do with interior design to change the feel of any space but something that brings more life than anything else is natural light. Having large windows is not only a great source of Vitamin D, but with sunlight streaming into the rooms, you don't need to use lamps during the day.
The sun is a piece of art in itself with the lines and shapes the sunbeams create. Large windows also provide an unobstructed view of the outdoors, which ultimately makes a room feel connected to the outside. Our park view rooms at Park Gate make you feel like you could touch the trees outside.
Pop of colour
The most important step when introducing colour into your home is making sure that you're selecting the shade that's right for both you and your space. Accessories are the key to easily adding colour to your home.
Opt for accessories in the same hue or a complementary shade and dot them around your room to ensure an even spread of colour. You don't want all of the interesting aspects of your room to be tucked away in one corner. Add a vibrant throw to a neutral colour sofa, put up a statement print on a white wall or add a bright vase to a plain shelf.
Create a dynamic interior design look by adorning your walls with beautiful art. Not only does art reflect your style and personality, it can also create a bit of drama to a room, or tell a specific story. Whether you choose an investment piece or buy your favourite print, put them in a frame and voila – a high end piece of design perfect for any room. Take a look at Vincent Van Doodle who have a wonderful collection of prints to choose from.
Introducing a couple of house plants to your home will add texture, colour and interest whilst filtering the air that you breathe. Start off by choosing plants that are easy to maintain and don't need daily watering, such as ivy or succulents. Once you're convinced that you can keep your plants alive, you will find yourself curating an urban jungle that sprawls around your entire home.
Place plants on shelves, kitchen tops, window sills and sideboards, either on their own or styled with other objects to create small displays. Dependent on your decor, opt to keep your plants in terracotta pots with draining trays, or pop them into a selection of stylish ceramic, porcelain or concrete containers.
