5 Home Decorative Ideas for 2018

With spring round the corner, now is a good time to start thinking about updating some parts of the house. If you browse the internet, you will find lots of home decorative ideas for 2018. I have been on a few websites myself, and I found most of them quite useful, especially the article on Elle Decor.

Here are a few home decorative ideas you could try thus year –


Carpet Tiles

A great way to update the look of a room is through the use of carpet tiles. Carpet tiles can be used as a great way of making your home stand out. You need to ensure you have your commercial carpet tiles properly fitted by a professional, to ensure a good job is done.

Don’t attempt this DIY this job if you are not sure of what you need to do.


Fluffy Rug

We have a few fluffy rugs and I believe there is still room for more. Fluffy rugs in a room looks very comfy and cosy. I think they are great home decorating items.

I always advise you shop for a fluffy rug in flesh, so there are no nasty surprises. It is best to head out to shops and have a feel of that rug you have your eye on.


Some Paint

Having your walls painted is a great way to change the look of any room. A fresh coat of paint would breathe a new life into a room. And it can be easily and cheaply done. All you need is the right supplies and you are good to go!

Do practice before you paint though. Test he roller on an extra piece of board to ensure it applies smoothly and evenly.


Wall Mirrors

Wall mirrors are a great way to redesign your home. They usually create this “WOW” factor. Creating an entryway with a wall mirror is a beautiful way to decorate.

Your front hall is the first part of the house so it makes sense to be it as welcoming as possible.

A nice bunch of flowers always good in a room. They are great for decorating a room, and adding some character. With the spring season almost here, I am looking forward to some weekly fresh flowers.

How Fashion Influences Interior Design

Fashion is a world of colour, styles and creativity. The fashion pieces and accessories designed every season makes me feel so grateful that innovation never dies.

For as long as I can remember, I have had an interest in fashion and interior design. I am so enthralled by the beauty and creativity in interior design. As I flipped through fashion and home magazines, I noticed something phenomenal:  The fashion trends and the trends of interior design were almost the same.

It’s so fascinating how fashion and interior design have so much in common in terms of what’s trending and what’s not. They meet at a tangent on several occasions.

It’s hard to believe how fashion can influence interior design. Here are some reasons to explain the relationship between fashion and interior design.


The seasons dictate the trends

Just the way we divide the year into seasons, in the fashion industry the year is divided into 4 different seasons: winter, spring, summer and autumn or fall. Fashion designers draw their inspiration from these seasons. They get ideas from the changes in weather, the colours outside and how people behave during those seasons.

Fashion designers pour their ideas into their sketches which then come to life on the runway. In the same way, interior decorators also get inspired by what they see around them. As the season changes so do their design ideas to suit the changes they see outside. They recreate what they see outside in the rooms they decorate.

Inspiration from social media

Everything is on social media these days. People generally engage with pictures better than they do with written content. That’s why you see more people upload all sorts of pictures, most especially what they or other people wear, for everyone to consume.

What this means is that as you or any other person uploads pictures of outfits on social media, you are showcasing a fashion designer’s creation. In fact, many fashion designers upload their creations on social media for their fans to appreciate.

Just the same way you’re on social media there are thousands of interior designers there as well. These interior designers get inspired by what people wear and what’s trending in fashion and try to recreate this in their work.


Style personified

I can confidently say that the first source of inspiration for many creatives is people. When you observe people, you notice the way they dress and the way they live their lives. We express ourselves in the way we dress. This is how we speak our mood or how our activities will be like.

Fashion designers try to capture the possible moods, our beliefs and concerns in the outfits they design. Consequently, when interior designers watch us express ourselves in our outfits, they pick up what we try to communicate and mirror them in the homes. with the furniture and in the arrangements.
