When it comes to interior design, there are a number of factors that come into play when trying to create your dream home. We can all agree, I think, that it’s worth the time and energy you put into it, however. After all, home is where the heart is, so you can’t truly be home if your heart isn’t in it. Therefore, it behooves us all to try to suss out how to create our dream home, but it can be harder than it sounds. After all, what is perfect? However, it can be helpful to have some point of reference in the form of examples of what others have done in the name of their own dream homes. Here are a few examples to help you pin down your perfect dream home.
First and foremost, consider the unifying power of a theme. A theme for your home can create a cohesive feeling that brings your home to life. One example of such a theme is an oceanic theme. For this theme, you would want to start with a color palette consisting of shades of blue and green that are evocative of the ocean. My favorites for this application are teal, seafoam, and cyan. Then, you’d want to go on a shopping spree with Home Decorators Collection to find some decor for your home that fits the theme. Examples include seashells, fish tanks, anchors, retro diving gear replicas, and more. Don’t forget posters, paintings, and photos that are thematically appropriate to finish your theme. Don’t feel like you have to commit to a single theme across your whole house, mind you. You could, instead, do a unique theme for each room, a single themed room, or anything in between. The choice is up to you.
Another important factor when designing a home is the flow of your space. Take a look at your current living room. Now, use the negative space between the furniture to form pathways around the room and into other rooms. You may find that you have blocked off natural pathways with your furniture and made traversing your space just a little harder than it needs to be. For your dream home, you’ll want to ensure thaqt these pathways are as efficient and easy to traverse as possible, lest you have to navigate a labyrinth in or4der to get to the bathroom.
