How to Personalize the Decor in Your Home

How many houses do we pass every day? How many homes do we see when visiting family and friends? This guide aims to provide some lovely and creative suggestions to add a personal touch to your home.

Exterior & Garden

It may seem odd to start with the exterior and garden of your home, but this is the first thing visitors see. You can use it to your advantage, but you should think of the garden as a space that requires features and a focus. Paint the house to match the garden. Should the garden consist of a lawn, patio, or decking?


It’s easy to forget how important the kitchen can be as a place for socializing. Think of all the times you have invited a friend into your kitchen when they arrive. It would be best if you stuck to a certain theme when it comes to color and style. For some inspiration, take a look at these popular themes. When putting together a kitchen, there are many things to consider. Do you want a separate oven and stove or one that is recessed in the kitchen units? Do you need a breakfast counter or a table? Plan and make sure to stay on theme.

Walls & Art

Consider the walls of any room or house as the most important area to consider. They are the next thing that visitors will notice after the furniture. Are you painting your walls in one color or a combination of colors? Are you trying to create a bold and striking feature by alternating colors, or are you thinking of making an eye-catching wall? It can be a great idea to create a focal wall with three walls in one color and another color that contrasts.

You can also consider putting art on your wall. If you have the money, why not buy an original work of art? Local artists are often willing to sell their work. If that’s out of your budget, you can find great wall artwork from independent artists on great websites.

Bedding & Furnishings

There are many ways to customize your bedding or furniture with handmade covers. Here’s how to make a cover for a pillow, duvet, or cushion. Making your curtains has also been on the rise! It’s wonderful to see that old sewing machines are being used again, and the skills they teach are not going away!
