I luuurve a beautiful home.The fact that i cant afford an expensive one doesn’t mean i shouldn’t have one that looks like it.I have a special passion for interior decorating.(Maybe i should consider a career in it)This blog is to share a few tips on how to get that gorgeous room on a budget without making your room look tacky.
Things i think about before decorating a room includes colour,inspiration and theme.
It is true that ideas may come to you on their own yes they do but i do get some decor inspiration mostly decor magazines.
Theme basically is a concept that you have regarding how you want your room to look.For instance my bedroom has the black and white damask print theme.So that would be the concept i will be working around.Next, I will think about colour.i love a darker colour for my bedroom so i chose burgundy to go with the black and white damask print.so while i have damask print curtains rug,storage boxes, decorative mirror and picture frames,i need another colour(burgundy) to bring it all together.A play with textures help to give a room character and life.I personally like fine lines and proportions so i also work to in cooperate all that when i am putting a room together.(putting a room together.goodness i sound like i do this for a living)
I love candles,and wat’s not to love about them?not only do they smell lovely, they keep the home warm and look very pretty.Ive got candles in every room in my house.There are some very gorgeous candle stands/holders out there.I pick my candle holders from the charity shops cuz the ones in the charity shops are unique and expensive looking.
Positioning candles in front of mirrors gives a very pretty quality.It gives a gorgeous regress illusion.
Below is an example of the candle holders i thrifted.
To display your stuff without making them look like a clutter,you need to organise them.

If like me you do not like your makeup to be on display,you could get a drawer organiser and arrange them nicely in there.There are also drawer organisers that you can use for socks,and other bits and bobs.They keep stuff tidy,easier to find and pretty as well.
