A new home is like a fresh canvas – it leaves everything to your imagination and creativity. If you want to create a personal space that will feel pleasant, relaxing and comfortable, you really need to put your own tastes and wants first. However, a couple of useful guidelines and helpful ideas are always welcome, especially if you’re unsure where to start with your décor and other remodelling projects. So, if you’d gladly create a casual chic vibe in your new home, you should definitely consider the following hacks.
Keep your bedroom simple, yet stylish
There are many things you can do with the personal touches for your new home, but when it comes to your bedroom, going simple is always the best. This doesn’t mean that you need to be really minimal unless you want to or that you have to ditch your taste. The key for the bedroom is to keep it noise-free, yet achieve elegance with a functional layout and nice bedding. For instance, plainer and lighter walls look great against a more massive bed with jewel-tone bedding and decorative cushions. Match the wood tone (or metal) of your bed with nightstands and wardrobe. There are plenty of comfortable beds for sale that will definitely fit the look you’re going for. Consider installing mood lighting and a dimmer switch. Decorate with details such as plants and scented candles.
Have fun with your living room
In order to maintain the casual chic vibe of your living room you should also make sure that you’re not trying too hard to turn it into a reflection of your mind. In a way, simplicity will also work for this area, but that’s a simplicity with a twist for you. Earth-tone shades work exceptionally well for the living room, but white is also appealing. The key here is to use your furniture as décor as well. In that respect, finding interesting furniture designs or some DIYing would work great. You can also play with art, but the best way to go is to have one big statement piece or a gallery wall. But, if you’re going with the gallery wall keep the rest of the details in the living room minimal. After all, a nice focal point is very effective when you’re going for a casual chic vibe.
But what about the details?
You obviously want to add some spice to your new home but what you want to do is add boldness and personality without creating a mess. Interestingly, that’s not so hard to do. When the walls are simple, just like the upholstery, and when there are not too many bits and bobs cluttering the space you can achieve amazing things with item design.
For instance, you’d obviously need cushion – use an interesting shade and pattern to break the monotony. The gallery wall mentioned before? Make sure that the frames are unique and striking. Feel the need for more warmth? Introduce a nice area rug that will elevate the whole atmosphere. Keep your plants tall and simple but feel free to use creative and interestingly designed planters that still match the rest of your furniture in shade. Tying everything with colour but featuring bold and unconventional designs is the biggest décor trend at the moment, for sure.
The best way to go about your new home’s décor and design is to really think things through before you actually start doing them. Visualize and decide what you want so that you can easily avoid getting distracted with plenty of cool décor elements that don’t match your ideal casual chic vibe.
