Decorating a new house, Condo or apartment can be a daunting task. It might have long been your dream to have a new space to decorate but when it comes time to actually do it, the choices can be overwhelming.
Picking out furniture and decorating a whole house or apartment is a huge task. Trying to create a unified flow throughout your home can be a monumental task. Whether you are picking out new decor items or mixing and matching furniture you already own, the task can be arduous.
Here is an idea that can work for the new home owner starting from scratch or the veteran home buyer looking for fresh ideas to spruce up existing furniture.
How about a room for every season? When I think of the four seasons I think of a multitude of colors. If you are using existing furniture and decor, the theme of the Four Seasons will leave it wide open for color choice.
·Fall: Virtually every color is expressed in fall tree foliage.
·Winter: The beautiful white snow against holiday festive colors.
·Spring: Beautiful flowers of every color bloom against lush landscapes.
·Summer: Amazing colors of beach scenes or nature landscapes.
These are just a few examples that may create some visual ideas.
One of the easiest ways to introduce a visual idea and bring the scene or season into focus is with a large professional photograph. With large photographic wall art such as a Landscape Photo or still life, you can introduce the season and set the color tone for the room. You could use the picture to accentuate the decor you already possess or use the photograph as the central point of the room. One of the best things about using a photograph is that you can find the right colors for your room in any season.
I think the best way to display photographic wall art is using the triptych format or three panel approach. This tends to blend in better with the room and be less over powering as many photos can be. Triptych Photography also displays more like a collection of wall art than a photo. A large framed photo can be over powering but a frameless photo triptych gives the clarity of a photo but offers a softer effect on the room.
If the four seasons is a bit much for you, just pick your favorite and go from there. The point is that a room doesn’t have to just be a comfortable collection of your things. You can easily transform your living space into a destination place.
