5 Ideas to Steal from this Three-Bedroom Condo with DIY Touches
Find decorating tips and tricks for your own home inspired by this bachelorette pad
Do you want to create a simple yet stylish home? If you ask us, you don't need to own too many pieces! You only need to invest in a few interesting items that can easily define your personal space. For example, Cristina dela Paz, the owner of this three-bedroom condo, picked out a white pendant lamp, a wooden dining table, a vintage rotary phone, and other chic choices.
If you love the relaxed feel of Cristina's bachelorette pad, here are tips and tricks that you should try:
Repeat after us: normal is boring! Forget the notion that everything in your home always has to match. For example, you can surround your dining table with different dining chairs.
Decoupage is the art of gluing layers of colored paper cutouts on a certain object. This is a way to personalize a plain and boring surface.
You can also try covering a bare wall with things that hold special meaning for you. For her dining area wall, the homeowner chose postcards from her mother and newspaper clippings of her late father. There are also pictures, maps, tickets, and other memorabilia.
Another thing that we immediately noticed in this thee-bedroom condo is this black rotary phone! You can also think about filling your home with antique items from family and friends.
RL Tip: Be on the look out for precious finds like a wooden cabinet, an accent chair, or an ornate vase.
You can also furnish your home with pieces that have a distressed finish! For a rustic appeal, you can look for items that seem worn and weathered.
For example, for this guest bedroom, the homeowner chose a headboard that could easily fit in a classic country home.
You can also use loud and vibrant colors to brighten up your home! For her own bedroom, the homeowner chose violet, green, and red.
