Stick To A Theme

Making sure you stick to a theme, colour palette or style throughout will ensure that your house looks consistent throughout, and will make it easier for you when you’re deciding on furnishings or the colour scheme of a room. Creating a mood board will enable you to visualise what colours, textures and styles you want in your home, and is a good visual guide for you to work from and take to furnishing stores to help you choose materials and furniture.

Limit Yourself To Purchasing From A Few Shops

It’s easy to lose sight of a project when you are shopping all over the place for new items. However, choosing a few stores to get your furniture and accessories from, will make it much easier to stay on theme, and you can see if you can get a discount or offer when you buy several items from the same place.

Invest In Statement Pieces

The right furniture and accessories can alter the whole look of a room. Bring a room together and stay on theme by having one or two statement pieces in each room. This might include a designer sofa in your lounge or an elegant chandelier in your dining room. Take a look at the beautiful statement pieces by Fendi Casa and get inspired by their collection of furniture and design objects. A statement piece might also include a piece of art, but make sure that this is placed somewhere that you want the eye to be drawn towards, somewhere central preferably.

Start With Your Favourite Space

A good tip to stay inspired while you are undertaking your design project is to start with your favourite room in the house. You will have the energy and motivation to put all of your creative juices into this room, which once completed will give you a sense of having achieved something. If you spend a lot of time in a dining room or living room, entertaining frequently, for example, then this will provide you with the opportunity to showcase your room.
