In this post, we are going to talk about skateboard wall decor and canvas decor. Let’s face it, With all the COVID-19 craziness that's going on, we are now spending more time at home than ever. Working from home and staycationing at home- has got us stuck in our same old boring houses for the good part of a year now. With so much time on our hands, and good old online shopping that can deliver almost anything to our doorsteps, why not make use of this time to give a brand new makeover to your space? Here are our top 5 tips on how to give your home a DIY glow up during quarantine!
1. Theme it
Why do our homes never look as good as those display homes we see in showrooms or our favourite TV show sets? The answer is in THEMES. Rather than picking up bits and pieces of home decor that you like and trying to make them fit together, start with a blank canvass and decide on a theme for your space. This could be anything from modern, minimalist, bohemian, rustic, Hollywood glam etc and the world is your oyster when it comes to the choices. Give your space your own personal flair by customising it to match your own interests, hobbies and quirks. One theme that we have been loving lately is "retro style" that has been making a big comeback in both home decor, fashion and music.
Once you decide on a theme, it's so much easier for you to collect items that would complement the look and feel that you want to achieve. It also makes it easier to hunt down decor pieces that would match your space, as you can simply filter your search items by your theme.
2. Mix and Match
May it be colours, patterns or even the type of pieces that you add to your home, mixing and matching is always the way to go. This is also where your DIY and crafting skills may come in handy. Balance out that expensive furniture with some cute but inexpensive cushions that you can purchase and get delivered to your doorstep online. Make sure that your lovely chandelier stands out by painting some unique designs on your wall- yourself. Compliment your classic vintage masterpieces with a touch of modern decor. Add a splash of colour to an otherwise simplistic room by using colourful rugs or cushions. This will help you be in THEME whilst also not making the space seem too monotonous or over-the-top. It’s all about that BALANCE.
3. WOW factor
Another great tip is to create a focal point in every room and space that can be the star of the show. That one “WOW factor” item that immediately catches your attention when you enter that room. May it be a bright coloured sofa, vintage vanity, or unique wall art design; having one central piece that grabs your attention when you enter a room, helps you to keep things interesting, and to plan the layout of the entire room around it. We may be biased but we think that our Customisable Retro Wall Art canvases are the perfect WOW factor to any space including your living room, kitchen or bedroom. These designs can almost take you back in time to the 70’s and 80’s and help you hold on to that amazing Retro vibe forever.
4. Let there be light!
Any home décor Guru would tell you that Lighting plays a big role in the mood that you want to create for your space. Depending on the theme that you are going for and the layout of your space, natural lighting, overhead lights, lamps and even fairy lights can add that final touch of magic to your home. When choosing a light source, always pay attention to the function of the space, who will be using it, and which pieces you want to highlight in that room. We ourselves are suckers for natural lighting and love positioning our furniture to be in sunlight hot spots.
5. Switch it up
Regardless of which theme you select for your home décor projects, it’s always a great idea to switch things up every once in a while. Whilst most people may not want to switch up the entire theme of their home from time to time, changing the positioning of your furniture, changing your beddings, rugs, cushions and blinds, and even changing the painting job of some rooms every few years is a good way to keep things fresh and interesting.
Hope you have fun creating a unique space for yourself. Remember- there are no rules or one correct way of home decorating, and the most important thing is to have fun while you create a space that will be fun to love in!
