Whether you’re moving or you’re to tired of your drab and boring living space and want to freshen it up a bit, finding the right decor and doing it correctly may be a bit difficult. Not only do you have to think about color schemes, styles, fabrics, and textures, but you have to think about what kind of atmosphere you’d like in your home. There are many different ways to dress up your home as a trendy living space, and these tips will help you do just that.

The first thing you should do when you’re looking to spruce up your home is think of what you like. Find photos online and in magazines of decor that you admire. A great place to start is Pinterest, which has tons of different options when it comes to interiors. If you want something a bit more details, you may want to watch a couple videos on YouTube. One of the most popular videos these days are home and apartment tours, which can give you insight on what you do and don’t like when it comes to interior decorating. After doing a bit of research, you should start to get an idea of what you like. Pick out color schemes, decorating tips, and vintage looks to reimagine your home. If you’d like something a bit more tangible it’s a good idea to get a binder and take photos from the internet or magazines and print them off so when you’re shopping or out and about you can refer back to your book. Even if you don’t take down specific photos, you can instead concentrate on colors, textures, prints and more to serve as inspiration.

After you have a good idea of what you want, it’s time to go shopping! Before buying anything you should find a way to repurpose the things you have. A fresh coat of paint and a reimagining of a simple items can make a huge difference and really turn it from drab to fab in a matter of minutes. This is a great way to think about decor, especially if you’re someone who wants things to be a bit on the cheaper side. Not only can you paint things to freshen them up but you can also do things like use old or too small shirts as pillowcases or frame them if you like the print. The possibilities are endless, and there are tons of DIY projects that you can find online that may be exactly what you need.

Next, it’s time to find the big stuff. This is usually done over a few months and sometimes even longer. If you only want to go for new items, this can get incredibly expensive. Instead, opt for thrifted items, where you can end up paying a lot less for even higher quality items! If you absolutely can’t find what you need at thrift stores another great alternative for high quality furnishings is Overstock, which can have crazy good deals on high quality pieces and furnishing for your home!
