Break From The Crowd, Make Your Home Unique

Break From The Crowd, Make Your Home Unique
I often get tired of my bedroom decor, and when that happens it’s time to change that with some new twists. Some people are fine with their living room looking like that of their friends or their next-door neighbours. But if you want your home to look different while still being ultra stylish, here are some great possibilities for you to consider.
Get Eclectic
You might think that minimalist design is the best possibility for your house. With a minimalistic design, it’s possible to make sure that your home looks modern and sophisticated. Personally, it’s one of my favorite looks, but only with a few more personal touches. To achieve a minimalist design, you just need to make sure that you are limiting the number of furniture and accessory pieces in a room.
To pep it up, choose a few eclectic pieces whilst sticking to a color scheme or general look. Doing this, you can choose furniture pieces from different periods to create a room design. You can also play with multiple colours too, clashing and creating a storm of imagination. An eclectic design can be difficult as it may make your room look like a cluttered mess if you don’t pull it off. However, selecting the right pieces is part of the fun - some of my favorite things to use are postcards, posters and photos for a budget upgrade.
Play With Shapes
You may also want to think about choosing different furniture shapes for your room. For instance, take the chair. You can get circular chairs that will look fantastic and are quite unique regarding style. Or what about the shelving in the room? Cattelan Italia has created a stunning drop shelf that would look brilliant.
I always think shapes also work really well on textiles. Throws and cushions are a great and inexpensive way to change the look of a room entirely, Urban Outfitters always have an amazing selection, or change with the seasons and add something like Hawaiian prints to signal the start of summer. My leafy bed print always makes me feel summer-y and a little bit uplifted.
Look For Rare, Special Accessories
Most people are happy to buy their home from a shop like Ikea for the convenience(me included). However, if you do this, it’s worth pointing out that you probably will end up with the same items as everywhere else. Instead, think about purchasing the bulk from these kind of shops and accessories from smaller shops and sellers. Niche stores may be able to offer some wonderful little accessories that could bring your home to life with a unique character.
Of course, if you want to make sure that your home is styled with unique accessories, you can think about creating them yourself. There are plenty of tutorials online, I could spend hours scrolling through ideas on Pinterest.
