The couches in your living room don’t have to be the same colour, and the tables and shelves throughout your home don’t have to be built from the same material. When you mix-and-match furniture textures and styles you are able to add an element of design that feels sensible and contemporary.

Painting walls is not the only way to add colour to your home. Textiles like pillows, rugs, and curtains are easy ways to experiment with colours and patterns. Don’t shy away from the use of wallpaper either – there are plenty of ways to get creative with wallpaper that will make a noticeable difference in your home.

Bringing plants and flowers indoors is a sure-fire way to add something special to your home. Breathing life into your hallways and common spaces, greenery makes your home feel fresh and tells your visitors you are décor-savvy. Outdoor greenery can also help personalize your new home – try your hand at gardening or integrate professional landscaping into the front and back yards.

These types of personal items add character and bring a unique element into your otherwise normal room.
