What turns a house into a home? It’s your personal touch. Right from the colours to the textures, patterns and the arrangement, a home decor speaks volumes about each woman’s style.

All you need is to put some creative energy and a bit of a personal charm to make your home unique – just like you.  Take inspiration from these 5 things and add character to your home.

2. Adorn your Walls

There’s no better way to show who you are and what you love than by creating a personalized photo wall. Pick a bare wall in your home crying for some love. Hang all your travel pictures, childhood memories, family portraits on it. (Pro tip: Paint the wall in a bright shade or give it a textured finish to draw more attention to it.) Make sure you pick the right frames to give the photos a more structured look. Home decor expert, Elvy, has some classy and sleek frames which will turn your pictures into a pretty story board. Go ahead, grab them and get started with your signature photo wall.

3. Invite Nature

Mother nature does the trick even when it comes to sprucing up your home. Add some green power to your house to create a soothing a refreshing vibe. Place some colourful, quirky pots on your balcony or the window and keep a big indoor plant in an empty corner. These will breathe new life into your room and also look classy when kept in a pretty vase. (Pro tip: Place a single large flower, such as Hydrangea, on the dinner table to add a splash of colour.

4. Statement Furniture

Old is gold and this holds true especially for olden day furniture pieces. While your ancient wooden furniture may look withered and worn out, don’t even think of throwing it out. Pull them out and paint them in a colour you love – turquoise blue, yellow, dark red or even green to create a statement piece. Place these colourful pieces in your living or bedroom and you will never want to leave your home again.
