When it comes to home improvement, there are a myriad of factors that come into play when trying to create your dream home. After all, you want your home to be perfect, and yet, what is perfect? How do you create something that can’t be easily defined? There’s no easy answer, and it’s something you have to discover on your own, but one way to get the ball rolling is to look at examples of what others have done over the years, or just brainstorm. Here are some ideas to take inspiration from.
First and foremost, one way to bring a home to life is by using a theme. Themes can really tie a home together by giving the whole thing a nice cohesive feeling. When it comes down to what kind of theme you want, though, you have choices. For starters, let’s look at an ocean theme. You’d want to start with a color palette of blues and greens, such as teal, cyan, and seafoam. Then, you’d want to expand upon this palette with some matching decor such as seashells, anchors, retro diving gear replicas, fishtanks, and more. Paintings, photos, and posters that go along with the theme will also do wonders. Don’t feel like you have to commit to a single theme across your whole home, though. You could do a different theme for every room. For example, you could use 23andMe to get a read out of where all your family comes from and pay homage to your origins with various rooms. Or, you could stick to just a single themed room.
Another way to create a unique dream home is to create a mural in your home. If you’re an artist, this goes hand in hand with your skill set, but you could also have someone do it for you, either as a favor or for pay. It could even be paired with one of your themes from the above advice. A mural would make a great addition to a room as an accent wall that would create a striking presence in any living space.
