Have you found your own unique decorating style for your abode? If you are like most, you’ve combined a bit of several different things you love – something old, something new, something borrowed and probably something blue too. The old saying might apply to more than just your wedding day. Whatever your style of décor, you will take the most pride in handmade design elements. Whether they work well together or not is another matter, but check out a few of these ideas and get started making your living space cozy and unique.
The Reused and Rustic Look
Take inspiration from items that you typically recycle, or even those items you don’t know how to recycle. Create lighting in your home that suits your needs and looks unique. Or put old lightbulbs to an altogether different use as vases. Collect old wine bottle corks to make floormats, and magazines or newspapers to weave baskets for interesting storage spaces. Make art out of old globes, tin cans or other odds and ends from your junk drawer. Everyone has one of those, right? Visit our Pinterest page for even more recycled inspiration.
Decor Ideas Good Enough to Share
As the seasons change, invite friends over to create autumn wreaths. Or add style and class to dishes in your cupboard with some paint and a little inspiration. Both are fun projects to do with friends or roommates. Perhaps your home is really in need of some organization before you can get to decorating. Get kitchen gadgets and crafting supplies sorted and stored with the help of these DIY ideas.
Are you into journaling or looking at getting started? Journals can be a colorful part of home décor, and they also make great gifts. Choose your favorite fabric designs and add splashes of color to your reading nook. Make sure you get a little extra fabric if you want to spread the same design themes throughout the house by framing them.
