Stylish tips to empower your living spaces
Statement in Print
Don’t shy away form mixing prints for your home décor. However, don’t mix too many colors. So if you choose to team up two prints, they should each be in a primary color. Also, try picking up the hues and echoing in solid color through other décor elements such as flowers or an artwork, or even the flooring.
Create a utility table next to the bed in the guest room. Especially in a small space, it helps create shelves in bedside tables. You can neatly roll up and stock an extra blanket for your guests’ convenience, extra books and so on which the guest can spot easily.
Child in Order
This one is for the household with children but not enough space for individual use. Create service corners such as these with hooks and baskets foe each child to use to stock his or her things. You can also label the spaces with the children’s names to keep things organized.
More storage ideas for your little ones: This one is built against a wall and has several niches to hold different things. It’s a good way to begin your toddler on lessons of putting back things where they belong by making a game of it and following the ‘rules’ yourself.
Looks Good, Stores Better
Functional Space: instead of just putting up décor pieces in an awkward space, a load bearing beam can be used for a long pin-up board to hold up things you need. The plans for the month or year to do with the house and family, important dates and other must-remember things are noted and refreshed from time to time.
Color Tool: Contrary to general rules of décor, a small space need not always take pastels. A neat and pleasing effect is created in a bathroom with one wall painted in a bold, solid color complemented by the use of only one other color: white. The wall facing this could hold a large mirror and the shower area, curtained off with a printed curtain in white and maroon color.
