How to Add Your Unique Personality in Home Decorating
Whether you fancy sleek appliances and hardwood floors, or you enjoy colorful carpeting and cluttered bookshelves, your home should be a reflection of your unique taste and style. Decorating your home is a rewarding experience that offers an opportunity for you to explore your personal preferences and try your hand at interior decorating. Even if you aren’t the most decor-savvy, there are a few easy ways to infuse your home with personality to create a space you love to live in.
Lighten the Mood
Accent lighting is one of the best ways to create a certain feel throughout your home. Table lamps illuminate the room in all the right places while serving as functional decorations. From funky to formal, you can find lamps in almost any style, color, and size that will perfectly light up your world.

Buy art from the store, purchase it from a local gallery, or hire a commissioned artist to paint a custom piece for your space. Art doesn’t just fill empty wall space; it breathes life and brings emotion to the room. Abstract art is perfect for the bedroom and office, while statement works and realistic pieces serve as great topics of conversation in living rooms and common areas.

Buy Plants that Pop
A flash of color and a pop of greenery can help brighten up any room. Low-maintenance indoor plants create an air of vitality within the space. If you don’t have a green thumb, try sprucing things up with bouquets of fresh-cut flowers placed in gorgeous vases around your home. Other excellent plants that are easy to care for include succulents, spider plants, and Aloe vera.

Paint an Accent Wall
Painting an accent wall is the best way to incorporate your favorite color into your home without overpowering the room. Liven up your living room with a splash of Living Coral or create a relaxing reverie in your bathroom by painting a baby blue accent wall. Colors are powerful at evoking emotion. You can choose accent colors for each room based upon how you want to feel in that particular room.
Create Sparkle with Crystals
Crystals are becoming more popular in home decoration. One look around Home Goods proves that many people enjoy decorating their homes and lining their shelves with sparkling rocks. Whether or not you believe that crystals have “powers,” they are undoubtedly beautiful to look at, and they do a fantastic job of catching the light, making them even more stunning.
