DIY Ideas to Style Your Home During the Lockdown
If there is one thing that this pandemic has shed light on, it is the importance of a home - your own personal sanctuary where you could seek solace, from at the end of every tiring day. And with work from home being the new normal, it helps to bring about a change in your immediate surroundings, every now and then, by sprucing up the different nooks and corners of your home.
Whether it is a complete overhaul or just a few quick upgrades that you are on the lookout for, here are a few tips and tricks that can help transform your home into a happy and safe place.
Characterization of a particular space/corner
Building a narrative that varies from space to space, helps add depth and character to your overall home. This could be as simple as reupholstering a sofa in a funky floral fabric that matches your wallpaper or adding a set of satin pillows and woolen throws to your bed in the bedroom
Make your palette colourful
They say life’s a painting and you are the artist. Why not follow that in your homes as well, shift away from those boring black and whites and embrace a colour palette that not only reflects your personality but also adds a layer of fun to any space - cause after all the walls of your home are the canvas to your soul
Mix and match, your way
When it comes to DIY home decor ideas for the living room, there are no rules to play by. Since your living room is where you spend the majority of your time, it is important to set the tone right - one that radiates comfort, peace and positivity at all times. By letting your authentic self be the decision-maker, you end up creating a room completely personalized to your liking. Example - Setting antique collectibles against functional furniture or combining floral murals with sprawling rugs.
A small change goes a long way
Makeovers don’t always have to be a mammoth of a task. Sometimes a small and basic switch can do the trick. Adding a new scented candle or changing the lighting of your home can instantly brighten up the mood and make your home feel brand new.
The importance of a dedicated workspace
With workstations becoming the need of the hour, it is important to invest in a space that is completely yours - whether it’s a corner in the living room, bedroom or dining room. A cluttered space can instantly hamper productivity. Which is why choosing a clean and simple space, surrounded by a variety of plants and designed with balanced, neutral tones can help in maintaining that zen mode against all your crazy work hours.
