Interior Design Mistakes

Posted by Alyssa on July 16, 2019

It’s so easy to fall into these common interior design mistakes. While doing some research for this post I ended up doing a quick check of some of the rooms in my house and decided that some changes needed to be made. Have you fallen victim to some of these common mistakes? 

Interior Design Mistakes

  1. Decorating with things that are the same size. If everything in your room is the same height, you’re going to have a pretty boring space. Instead, choose furniture and accessories that vary in height, shape, and texture. 
  2. Choosing a rug that is too small. If you aren’t sure what size to get, check out our guide on what rug size you need to help get you started!
  3. Not hanging art or hanging art incorrectly. Picking the wrong size of art or hanging it too high will not help out your room. Instead, follow this guide on how to hang art correctly. 
  4. Too much clutter. Whether it’s having too much furniture put into one room or it’s a shelf overflowing with accessories, less is more. If you don’t have a place in your room where your eye can rest, your room will not be a relaxing place to spend time. 
  5. Ignoring the importance of good lighting. If you only have your overhead light, your room will feel harsh and overbright. Layer your lighting with a variety of lamps to help create an inviting mood.

Room Dividers for Large Rooms

Posted by Alyssa on July 12, 2019

If the large room in your home feels overly intimidating to decorate or your couch seems tiny in comparison, it may be time to divide up your space. There are lots of ways to layout a large room, but if you’re looking for a way to create defined spaces you may want to bring in a room divider. Screens, bookshelves, and even sectionals can help break up a large room and make it feel more intimate and manageable. Here are some different dividers you may want to consider using.  

Room Dividers for Large Rooms

Keep your space open while still breaking up your space by using a bookshelf. If you want a large divider, this bookcase would be perfect. For less of an impact and a smaller space, this shelf would be great.

A screen is a good way to break up your space. I love this wood and aluminum divider, this locker room divider, and this black wood panel divider

This leather sectional can work as a room divider. Divide up your room with this sectional and add some cozy seating as well!

 

How have you divided up your large room?

Quick Tips to Freshen Your Home

Posted by Alyssa on July 9, 2019

No one likes to enter a stuffy, slightly smelly house, and so take a minute to follow these quick tips to freshen your home! 

Quick Tips to Freshen Your Home

Open Your Windows

This may not work if it’s too hot outside, but throw open as many windows as you can and let the fresh air into your home. 

Stove Simmer

This may be something you’ll want to do this fall when the weather cools down, but by simply simmering water with citrus and herbs in it you’ll be able to fill your home with a delicious smell. Try lime, rosemary, and vanilla for a more summery smell or cinnamon, apple peels, orange rinds, and cloves for this fall. 

Clean Out Your Garbage Disposal 

If you catch a whiff of something every time you pass the sink, it might be time to clean out your disposal. Try squirting some nice smelling dish soap into the disposal while the water is running and the disposal is on. You can also put some lemon or lime rinds through the disposal - just make sure you run a lot of water through as well. 

Bring in House Plants

Not only do plants look great, but they can naturally clean the air as well. Check out some of these ideas for the best plants to have indoors.

Essential Oils Diffuser

If you have an oil diffuser you can simply fill it with water, add a few drops of your favorite essential oils, and turn it on. 

Clean Up After Your Pets

It may sound simple, but vacuuming up pet hair, cleaning up any accidents as soon as they happen, and cleaning your carpets will keep the pet smell out of your house. 

 

What are some ways you freshen your home?
