Having Fun with Interior Design
It is a very rewarding experience to turn mundane areas of your home into something wonderful to look at. Interior decorating is special, because you get to interact every day with your masterpieces. This activity allows you to combine creativity and utility. Often, flawless interior decorating is like make-up: the less you notice it, the better you did your job! A well-decorated house allows its occupants and guests to feel comfortable, inspired, and serene. Every one of us has some degree of interior design skill: we copy what we like, rearrange what we do not, and strive to live in the best environment possible.
Storing your Silk Wreaths
A principle way to decorate your home for the holidays is with a wreath. However, once you have enough wreaths to match all the seasons and decorations you want, you may feel that there is no place to put your wreaths when you are done with them. That does not need to be the case, as there are several options for storing your wreaths. In fact, one of the best ways to store your wreaths is to simply reuse them. You can do so by having only one wreath and changing or rotating the decorations you display on it. When creating a reusable wreath, you will want a strong foundation. Simply tape or lightly glue your decorative pieces to the base. In this way, without destroying your wreaths, you will never have to store the ring because it is always hanging on the door. All of your decorative pieces can be kept in a single box, and often you can keep them organized in the pattern or design you like for them. There are storage containers built specifically for wreaths and hanging shelves that store your wreaths nicely if you?d rather use multiple wreaths.
When incorporating plants and other greenery into your home, there are two ways to go about the process. You can find some beautiful greenery, bring it home, and play around with your furniture layout so that your plant has adequate room and a natural resting place. The second method is to arrange the house they way you want it, and then look for the right sized plants to fill in the spaces. Either way, if you do not have a huge amount of room but you want an adequate amount of greenery, using ferns is a good choice. The nature of the fern makes it a natural choice for smaller areas due to its fine, tiny leafage and ability to fill the space it is given as it matures. There is a wide variety of live and artificial ferns. A great benefit of live ferns is that they are hardy and will do well in a variety of settings. On the other hand, silk ferns offer the beauty of a fern with no need for maintenance. Ferns work better as ?background? plants than centerpieces, but still ad a nice touch. In this fashion you can set up a great theme or pattern using ferns as a backdrop and beautiful flower arrangements that pop out and catch the eye.
Thoughts on Rearranging My Home
Sometimes when I am at the craft store, it is easy to think that buying a certain item will add so much to the look of my home. This mode of thought not only leaves me constantly wanting for the next available item but also leaves my wallet empty. In all reality, that new exciting purchase may be the first thing I add to my next garage sale list. Instead of the constant looking and searching for new items, I have found that rearranging what I already have is a great solution for home d?cor. Sometimes I do something drastic (rearrange an entire room), and sometimes the change is more subtle (swapping this picture for that painting), but it still gives me the feeling of having a nice change in the house. This way, I am expanding my artistic ability and sparing my wallet!
