Tired of coming back home to a place that doesn’t feel like home? Maybe you should take some time off this weekend to style up your space with some easy and affordable DIY decor to make it chic, colourful and most of all, all about you!
Start off by cleaning up your house/ office or creative space that you’re redecorating. Throwing out unused objects and cleaning out the space can really help you visualize what you can do to make it brighter and style it. If you’re thinking of re-painting the walls then choose colours that comfort you. Colours like light yellow, pinks and blues are soothing and also make your space brighter and cheerful. Painting the walls yourself or with the help of your friends would make a fun weekend activity. Create geometric patterns on your walls by using painter’s tape and paint inside the shapes with a variety of colours. Bring out your creative side by choosing different patterns to paint on one of the walls or get a stencil of picture of your choice and paint over it; that way you can customise your walls with designs of your choice!
Using some of your old wooden boxes by repainting and installing it at the corner of the room on on the wall could make a cute bookcase and a small space to at least keep a few of your favourite books easily available. Personalise your space by adding some drapes and curtains. Maybe you can customise an old favourite saree and use it as drapes in your room, something special and personal. Coming home should be something that relaxes you and your home should be a place of peace and comfort. Take a break from your busy schedule every evening and relax in your room with scented candles while listening to your favourite music. Sounds soothing right? Making your own scented candles with your preferred fragrances and using some old teacups, mugs or glass mason jars is far cheaper and better than buying it at a store.
Add some finishing touches to your room by making your own colorful wall art, abstract paintings and vibrant lava lamps. So whether it’s your office space, living room or bedroom, add life and colour to it, make it special, make it yours!
