Whether you have just purchased your home, or it’s time for a spruce, decorating your place can be tricky, but it can also be a rewarding process that imbues your home with your own personality, character, and maximizes the use of space and light. However, in addition to choosing those major pieces such as the furniture, technology, and storage, there’s something special about discovering what the right details can do to create an eye-catching design for your space.
When you have your heart set on the look and feel of your home, it makes sense to pick your details carefully. Even if you know exactly what kind of potential your home has and what color palette is best for the available natural light, you should also take the time to choose eye-catching details that can completely redefine and revive your environment. Here, we’ll focus on precisely that: the seemingly small, yet significant choices you can make in the interior design process to elevate the look and feel of your home.
Imbue Your Home with Nature
The previous year has been tough on us all, especially for those who have not been able to spend too much time in nature due to the travel restrictions and social distancing rules. The best way to bring some Mother Nature into your home and to create unique focal points all across your space is to add greenery in all shapes and forms. Don’t worry, if you don’t have too much experience with greenery, there are plants that you can add to your space without too much hassle or worry.
Decorating with greenery can start simple, by introducing a few potted plants here and there, but you can take it to the next level by turning an entire kitchen wall into a vertical garden for your spices and herbs. Then again, you can give your interior garden spots some color with flowers in full bloom, too. Remember, these arrangements can add both color and fragrance to your home!
Get Cozy with Pillows & Throws
A living room is often considered the central area of any home, since your guests will spend most of their time there, and you will likely bond with your family and friends in that particular area, as well. That is why it’s up to you to elevate the design of your living room, and that can easily be achieved with the help of cozy accessories.
For example, even an older sofa model can be transformed with a colorful, chunky throw blanket in a contrasting hue paired with a couple of equally comfortable, eye-catching throw pillows strategically placed in several different corners of the room. Finalize your eye-catching efforts with a couple of rugs, which can instantly boost the allure of your bathroom and living room alike.
Details to Elevate Your Bathroom Décor
In addition to details that serve to cozy up your bathroom, you should look for functional and purposeful details and accessories that can also steal the spotlight in this particular space. When it’s time to look for new and functional bathroom supplies, including vanities, mirrors, and sinks that can completely modify the space. For instance, black taps give your bathroom that modern, somewhat industrial edge, while wall-hung vanities make it easier for cleaning and maintenance and modernize the whole layout.
Depending on your color palette, you can use deep black as a way to contrast your bathroom hues, but you can also aim for different shapes for your sink and bathtub to give the room a softer, more sophisticated vibe.
Tiles for Your Kitchen
Since your kitchen is primarily a functional space, it makes sense to choose pieces that will help you store your cookware and goods, but also maximize the use of space for appliances. That still leaves you plenty of room to get playful with details such as kitchen tiles, which are both easy to clean, making them low-maintenance, but also serve an aesthetic purpose.
Adding textured tiles to your kitchen in a color to clash or match the floors will help you decorate like a true interior designer and create a cohesive style of this room. For a Mediterranean-like look, you can add deep blue shades to contrast pure white, while black and white remain a top pick for many who like classic minimalism.

Spruce Up Your Walls with Fresh Patterns
While we’re on the subject of walls, updating your bedroom or living room walls with vivid wallpaper options on a single wall can make all the difference. It can create a lively contrast to the rest of the interior while providing a seamless backdrop for other design elements to come together.
Then again, you can use the same wallpaper for introducing design consistency throughout the home. Use the same wallpaper to decorate staircase risers, or the wall in your bedroom. Since there are reusable sorts you can use without damaging the wall itself, you can change as frequently as you like, adding more life to your space.
The right vase of flowers can steal the spotlight in your living room, and a good selection of bathroom cabinetry can completely revamp the overall look and feel of this space. Knowing that, you shouldn’t take decorating details for granted, but maximize their use in the right setting to bring a specific part of any room into focus, or to give your existing interior a new, refreshed look. Hopefully, the listed ideas will get you started, and soon enough, your home will be infused with new energy and beauty!
