Finding inspiration for decorating every room in your home should be simple. Take in everything around you that you believe is beautiful and carry a camera with you wherever you go so that you can remember it. Or, take clippings from your favorite magazines to stash away for using later.
Save online pictures that you like, and keep your favorite decor photos all in one place that you can refer to easily when you do your next DIY project. It doesn’t matter what inspires you, as long as it captures your creative imagination.
Choosing color schemes is often a source of drama between couples, especially in movies, and especially as there are so many different options out there. The finished color schemes you can get vary, and the number of colors is vast.
If you are undecided, choose a neutral off-white or pastel color, that you can dress up with colorful art and furniture. This makes your space quite changeable and you don’t need to worry about things coordinating because everything will match.
Room Decor Tips
When you are deciding on decorating any room, you need to think practically as well as creatively. What do you really use the space for? What would you love the room to look like?
Think before you head to your home department store, where you’ll get some fairly unoriginal ideas.

And instead of buying all the items at once, start with a few things and add to it over the coming weeks, months and years for a really lived-in feel, where you spent time falling in love with each item.
50’s Decorating Ideas
A truly iconic era in terms of style, the 50s saw loads of design classics invented. Kit out your kitchen with a classic Smeg fridge and bright, bold retro prints. Kitsch items should adorn every nook and cranny, and be influenced by the stereotypical diners of the fifties.
Neutral colors and clean lines are great contemporary decorating choices. In a contemporary home, it’s important to think about the architecture of your home, the lines of it, and the geometry. Remember that less is more, so try not to clutter your home with objects.
Be bold and brave with the items you choose to furnish your home. Pick statement pieces and give each item a space to breath. Think of your home as an art gallery where each piece must be displayed.
Bohemian Decorating Ideas
The exact opposite of contemporary style, bohemian decor is about color and life. It’s not about big statements; it’s about many chic items put together in one space to create a vibrant atmosphere.
Go to an antique store or vintage shop to find one-of-a-kind items that you really love. Think texture, color and pattern, and don’t be afraid to be different. Choose interesting wallpaper, textured carpets and colorful throws.
