Home decorating can be such fun and is thoroughly rewarding.
One of the things that makes home decorating so enjoyable, is the incredible amount of resources that we can tap into in order to learn how to enhance our space.
We read books, magazines and online articles, we watch a host of home decorating TV shows, all to gain insightful advice on how to create a gorgeously decorated room.
Transformation / makeover stories are incredibly inspiring, so it’s no wonder we are so drawn to “ Before” and “After” home decorating pictures.
The beauty of having access to all this information, is that we benefit by learning from a huge knowledge base. We learn from both the successes and mistakes of others.
Here is a simple example:
Don’t Choose Your Paint Colour From a Paint Sample
Your little cardboard paint sample looks amazing in the fluorescent lighting in the hardware store.
But how would it look on the whole wall? There’s a strong possibility it may be overpowering.
Here’s what to do:
First purchase a small tin of your chosen colour. Paint a small section of the wall. Now you can see if the colour lives up to your expectations in the natural light of your room.
To avoid messing the wall, you could rather paint a piece of cardboard and tape it to the wall or walls.
Be sure to use this opportunity to view your colour in the evening by lamp light too.
Decorating can be tackled at various levels from simply changing your rug and cushions in one room to a complete home overhaul.
Decorating is not for everyone though. Some do not think decorating is fun at all, but are confident handing the reigns over to those in the know to complete this task for them.
Many have the energy and insight for decorating one room, but not the entire home.
