Don’t we all want to instill some changes in our abodes? With so many sources of inspiration, in the form of magazines, blogs, and TV programmes, it’s difficult not to get motivated to try out some of the ideas and put our decorating skills to practice. However, we can’t all afford to. Or can we?
Lucky for us, we do live in a DIY age, and we owe it to the internet. Start browsing online and you’re going to come up with some budget-friendly ways to spice things up décor-wise, such as this post. I’m going to show you how you can accomplish sophistication for less, relying on fabrics.
It’s important not to leave out windows, as they take up a considerable amount of space of our homes; you can easily start the inspiration flowing, and breathe some life to them by adding contemporary curtains. Sorry minimalists, but curtains are back for good! They equally give you control over the light, as they do with the ambiance.
The wide range of choices, in the affordable and lightweight sheer fabric, aren’t only not going to break your bank, but can only increase the value of your home as they’re durable, anti-creasing, fade resistant, and best of all – custom made, so you can count on the perfect fit. You can take decorating the contemporary curtains a step further by injecting more elegance with the help of a top fix.
Vintage is always going to be trendy; there’s something that screams high end magazines’ décor when vintage is introduced in the interior, and this is easily achievable with lace elements. Lace can be added anywhere: for instance, as a table cloth, or cushions decoration. It’s the ideal way to soften the hard pieces of furniture; not to mention, you’d add a sense of romance too!
Upholstery furniture is also more than welcome. Even if you don’t have the chairs that you can use as accent, you can take up a DIY project and do the upholstery yourself starting from choosing the fabric, its the pattern, and its the style, and adding a padded seat first. Make an ottoman part of the project too – this is a multi-purpose piece of furniture so it has an important role in the interior.
If you want to make a style statement, and increase the comfort and warmth of your nest, you can always use the charms of throw rugs, or a piece of fabric decorating your walls like a painting. Whether you go for the trendy neutrals, or natural, floral patterns, one thing is for sure: fabrics can make your home luxurious, and dimensional.
