5 Key Elements That Give Character To Your Home
These design ideas will give your home the boost it needs!
Have you ever looked at a beautiful home and thought something's missing? Sometimes, even the most stunning of spaces lack a certain extra oomph that can make or break it. To help you achieve a Pinterest-worthy aesthetic, we've rounded up the top five elements that can help you add visual character to your dwelling:
1. One-of-a-kind stairs
With a little creativity and elbow grease, you can turn your home's staircase into the focal point of your decor. If you're not afraid of major design changes, you can go as far as fluorescent-colored stairs or a quirky look like these Pantone-inspired steps.
2. Bold color combinations
When it comes to this tip, it's as simple as pairing two shades that you would never think of putting together and experimenting with color blocking. Consider bringing down the ceiling by painting a third a section of the wall in the same color for an eye-catching finished look.
3. Rustic touches
Adding a few Nordic-inspired pieces is an easy way to inject both color and texture into your decor. If you aren't a huge fan of the Shabby Chic style, you can always play with the look in small doses like open shelving or a charming lamp.
4. Vintage rugs
There is nothing better than using an antique rug with intricate details to add warmth to a room. However, these well-loved pieces can come at a hefty price tag. Consider trying out layering—combining modern pieces can help you achieve the same aesthetic without going over your budget.
5. Board and Batten
Give the walls of your T&B a little personality by defining it with a board and batten treatment. If you aren't too keen on asking for help from a pro, you can always go with the DIY route—let this step-by-step guide by Ana White guide you through your project!
