If you can pin down the design style you want for your home’s interior, you’re half way there! An easy rule of thumb is to use the same style for the interior as the home’s exterior. With an architectural home style like ranch or craftsman, dark, rich wood pieces, clean-lined furniture and lots of earth tones work well.

If you enjoy decorating your home, you should set a goal to bring a piece of artwork every time you travel somewhere. You’ll be able then to create a beautiful gallery. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be a premeditated action. You could also gather some of the things you’ve already brought with you from your travels and display them on a wall.

Some areas are known for their unique patterns, textiles and fabrics. So if ever get the chance to visit one of those areas don’t hesitate to bring back a textile souvenir. It can be anything from a table cloth to tapestry.

Everyone takes pictures when they go in vacation or somewhere special. It’s a way of immortalizing those beautiful moments and a way of taking some of that charm back home. If you have beautiful pictures from your travels, don’t be afraid to display them.

Pro decorating tip: Paint the wall you want to bring the most attention to in a color that may be a little too bold for your taste. Once you do, you’ve created a focal wall. Use that shade in the smaller accessories like pillows, vases or rug to tie the room together.

6. Layer each room, over time

Farmhouse is very popular nowadays thanks to designers like Joanna Gaines. The style adds fun, cozy comfort and a bit of whimsy to your new home. To decorate from scratch in a farmhouse style, practical, cozy and inviting are most important. Sofas should be overstuffed for comfort and slipcovered for low maintenance. Wood tables are earthy and casual. Colors and accent pieces have a vintage or antique store feel.

New home decorating pro tip: Determine your home’s exterior style and do a little research. Take inspiration from the elements of that style and add your own twist to the look. 2. Break down your new home decorating plan by room

The biggest piece in the room is usually the most important and most expensive. That’s why it’s important to start with that one piece and work your way from there. In a dining room, start with the dining table. For your living room, choose your sofa or sectional first. In your bedroom, the bed is the most important piece in the room.

  • Breakfast Room
  • Backyard/Patio Area
  • Guest Bedroom
  • Master Bedroom
  • Living Room
  • Entry
  • Lauren’s Bedroom

Pro decorating tip: Not sure which rooms to start with? Think about what rooms you spend the most time in. You’ll want to do those first. You can always do the guest room later — close the guest room door and forget about it for a while.

3. Start with the biggest piece in the room first

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to transform a blank canvas is by painting it! Repaint each room in a color of your choice. Now is not the time to be safe — choose a vibrant, bold or rich color. Even a neutral mocha shade or light grey can make more impact than plain white. And the best part is if you don’t like it, you can always repaint it.

The most common type of souvenirs that people bring back from their travels and vacations consists of accessories. They don’t have a specific use. They are items that you can only display. Some people prefer something more useful in place of a decoration while others enjoy decorating their homes with all sorts of beautiful elements.

A transitional style goes with most home architectural styles. The look is a hybrid of modern and traditional — perfect for updating older home styles like colonial or Victorian, or warming up a new-construction home. The transitional home decorating style involves the use of dark woods, stone, neutral colors and earthy reds, sages and olive greens as accent colors. Furniture is fairly streamlined but features more ornamentation and curvier, softer lines.

Decorating your new home is a marathon, not a sprint. As you spend more time in your new home, you’ll get to know it better. You may have new ideas on how you want a room to look and function a few months down the road, so no rush to get it all done at once! Here are the elements you’ll want to address over time:

Contemporary design is the most sparse and minimalist of the design styles. Few pieces are used in each room. Color selection is normally pared down to black, white or grey with primary color accents. Metals and glass, instead of wood, are featured. When decorating from scratch, a contemporary style is a good idea when you’re working with smaller spaces and/or you want to highlight the home’s natural features, like big, bright windows or architectural details.

The fastest way to get overwhelmed by an empty new home is by trying to decorate the whole house at once. Prioritize what rooms are most important to you and make a decorating plan, one room at a time! Maybe you’ll want to start with your bedroom, living room and laundry room. Pick two or three rooms maximum and plan to decorate them one at a time.

Some countries may inspire you to get a particular time of objects as a souvenir. For example, if you go to Morocco, you might want to bring back a pair of petit Moroccan-style pendants that you can hang above your vanity or anywhere else.

Pro decorating tip: The biggest piece in the room is likely where you’ll invest the most money. It usually gets the most use in the room, therefore quality is important. You can probably save some money on accessorizing, picking up secondhand bedside tables or finding an inexpensive coffee table, but never skimp on your sofa! 4.

Matching all the rooms in the house is a design myth. If you decide you want a transitional bedroom but a modern living room, go for it! Your home will have far more personality when you decorate from scratch, one room at a time. Just be sure to add a unifying element to all the rooms for flow, like a certain color, or a decor item in the home’s architectural design style.

You could also only make subtle suggestions regarding your recent travels without actually displaying any objects or items brought from there. An idea would be to use decorative maps. It’s a nice way of keeping track of the places you have visited and of making plans for the next trip.

A modern decorating style is well-tailored and features clean lines. Wood and earth tones add a softer feel to the clean straight lines. Mid-century modern sofas or elements are popular. Ranch homes, Art Deco-era homes, and homes constructed during and after the 1950s tend to work best with modern decor.
