3 Decorating Ideas Inspired by a Sporty Home
Showcase your hobbies and passions even in a small space
When it comes to decorating the home, we all want to showcase our collections, hobbies, and passions in life. Bookworms have shelves filled with books, others have toys in display cabinets, and there are homeowners who spruce up their walls with framed art and prints.
If you're unsure as to where and how to begin, discover decorating ideas inspired by this sporty home. The owner enjoys adventures and different activities and these pastimes are very evident in the vibe and feel of the home. Take note of these three things:
Display your toys
Depending on your favorite activity, you can put your "tools of the trade" on display. In this home, since the homeowner enjoys skateboarding, two boards are propped up against a wall as decor.
If you love calligraphy, you can have your best works framed and use it as wall accent. For bookworms, you can install open, wall-mounted shelves to accommodate your favorite reads.
Do not scrimp on storage
Plan your space wisely and make sure you invest in sturdy storage must-haves. If you love collecting shoes, make sure that you have a nice rack that can also double as decor. You can also make space for freestanding shelves, wall-mounted cabinets, and baskets.
Work with a palette that matches your hobbies and your personality
If you have an active lifestyle and you enjoy doing different activities, you can work with a bold palette featuring a couple of deep hues like navy blue or a neutral one like gray. Those who want to create a serene space that's perfect for writing can experiment with nature-inspired colors like green and blue.
