You can choose whatever style for your space but to make it truly unique and completely yours, you need to add personalized touches. Your guests would immediately know that they are in your home with specific details that showcase your personality.

Let these four ideas help you get started:

Display your artworks

Do you love coloring and doodling? You can have some of your works framed and displayed to liven up the walls. If you're not into drawing, you may print some of your Instagram photos and have these framed instead.

Showcase your favorite things

Instead of keeping your favorite items in your closet, why not display them for everyone to see and admire? If you love collecting makeup, you can display some of your favorites in the bedroom using a repurposed cake stand. You can easily turn your collections into decor and accent pieces.

Create an area for inspiration

Style your space with things that make you happy! Whether you love seeing plants or quirky colors, use these to decorate a certain spot at home. You can brighten up a corner of the kitchen or dining area with small potted plants or framed prints.

Work with colors

Unexpected pops of color can instantly transform a room from boring to lively! Be guided by color psychology when choosing colors that you can work with. Blues and greens are often associated with serenity while reds and oranges are used to stimulate the appetite—consider using such hues in the dining area or kitchen.
