Adding personality to your home

Adding personality to your home

Think of your house as a blank palette. It would look and feel completely different depending on the type of person living in it. If you keep this in mind as you arrange your interior decorations and pick colors, patterns, and textures, you can make sure that your living space accurately reflects your personality, thus creating that peaceful atmosphere that can make your home a true sanctuary from the outside world. Erin Gates, an interior designer and founder of lifestyle blog "Elements of Style" has suggested a few ways to incorporate your tastes in tasteful and inexpensive ways.

In with the old

First, Gates recommended you take another look at that rickety rocker in your grandparents’ basement or that worn loveseat in your parents’ guest bedroom. "With a fresh coat of paint or new upholstery," Gates said, "something you grew up with could fit beautifully into your space and tell a story."

Change out accessories

As trends change, you’ll want to update your space to reflect those new styles. Obviously it’s not practical to buy new furniture every year or two, but Gates said all it takes is changing out a few accessories-a throw pillow, a rug, a lamp-to freshen a room and give it new visual interest. She added, "Keep your space looking timeless so you won’t tire of it in six months."

Invest in big items

If you want to save money, sometimes you have to spend it. One of Gates’ biggest pieces of advice was to buy that slightly more expensive item the first time, rather than buying the cheaper version three times. You’ll be glad you did.
