Every hostess, who is not indifferent to the arrangement of a home, always wants to bring something new, interesting and unusual to her home. But in stores it is not always possible to find something that is truly original, you really like it or ideally fit into the home interior. Perhaps, in our selection of vivid examples and unusual ideas you will gather some inspiration of how to decorate your home with DIY creative elements and find something exclusive, individual and pleasing to the eye.
A great role in decoration of the interior is played by all kinds of accessories: figurines, vases, decorative pillows, candlesticks, paintings and other interesting details. So that they blend harmoniously into the overall picture of the interior and do not turn into “dust collectors”, it is not necessary to ask for help from the designer. If you want to create real beauty in the house, you can do it yourself. The main thing here is to have all the decor items in a single stylistic orientation, which will be in harmony with the overall interior of the room and the whole house.
At the same time, each room needs an individual approach. For example, such decorations as wicker baskets, fruit and painted dishes will be irrelevant in the living room and hall. These things are better for decorating the kitchen.
Decorative cushions for the living room
Perhaps the most functional decorations for the living room are cute little pads. They can be both contrasting or matching the basic tone of the interior. Decorative cushions are easy to make by hand. This task is possible even for beginner needlewomen.
Such pillows can be made from almost any material you like, but it should meet the following criteria:
- to be absolutely hypoallergenic;
- It is good to keep the shape;
- to be resistant to washing.
Another task is to choose the right material for filling the pillow. The best option is silicone and foam rubber. Also, the fabric for the pillow case should be dense, light and monochrome. It is better to give preference to cotton.
The shape of the pads can be square, round, rectangular. These are the most common types. Very unusual and fresh looking for the thematic design of the room or in the children’s rooms are pillows in the shape of a flower, a heart, some animal.
Having decided on the design and form, we turn to tailoring. The most successful seam for sewing pillowcases and cases is flat seam. We combine the details and sew them up with right sides. Iron and sew down after it. The crumbling edges of the material will be inside the seam.
Decoration of a private house
The private house assumes even more possibilities for realizing interesting ideas on decor. Indeed, in a large area of a luxury cottage there is a place to sweep creative imagination. An additional field for the realization of fantasy is the exterior of the house: courtyard, roof, fence, front door, porch etc.
A variety of decorating options can be devised using facade and paving slabs. Decorations from concrete are also very popular. Their partial coloration in gold is often used by Scandinavian designers.
Beautiful decor for birthday
Birthday is a wonderful occasion to show your imagination and creativity to the maximum. After all, it is not necessary to follow the rules for matching the interior with festive decoration, since after the event decorations are usually removed.
Balloons are perhaps the most popular version of the decor for the birthday. Ordinary balloons are not fashionable and irrelevant any more. Be creative, – fill them with helium.
To do this, you will need: floristic foam in the form of balls, large needle, paint and a sponge for applying it. The length of the needle should be larger than the diameter of the largest foam floristic ball.
Cozy needlework for decor
Create a New Year’s fairy tale in the house
All you need for the New Year decor is a minimum of New Year’s attributes in the form of a Christmas tree, pine branches, cones, garlands, themed toys and balls. And, of course, good mood, inspiration and a little creative originality to create a unique festive atmosphere.
Decoration from paper
To create such a stunning vintage composition, as you can see at the next photo, prepare the following:
- decorative paper;
- fabric for paper decoration;
- necessary supportive materials.
These simple materials can decorate anything. In our case, it is an old suitcase. This decoration will be a highlight in the interior of the bedroom, living room or kitchen. Moreover, you can also store different things in a vintage suitcase. It’s enough to cover it with a cloth and paper. You can also paste old photos to it and decorate the edges with lace, ribbons or braid.
No less interesting option is a panel with wishes, messages and notes. Prepare a beautiful thick fabric or a dark-colored paper. Fasten it on the wall and paste stickers of interesting shape (for example, in the form of flowers or leaves). Every time you meet guests, invite them to leave a note on the stickers in the form of wishes, quotes, goals, etc.
Another interesting idea of decorating a house is a fun puzzle in the form of paper pompoms. Materials you will need: cigarette colored paper, thread, and scissors.
Several pieces of paper fold in the accordion form in several layers on top of each other. Tie the middle of the leaf with a thread without pulling it together. Leave the ends of the thread long so that you can easily hang the pompoms. Cut the edges of the accordion in the shape of a semicircle or a triangle. Straighten all the accordion sheets and then stretch and spread each layer. In the end, you should get the same charming pompon as in this photo.
More aesthetics in the nursery
Chic interior in the nursery is good. But if it is carried out according to customary standards and is devoid of individuality, then something must be done urgently. Interesting cute little things in the child’s room not only create a coziness, fill the interior with a special mood and warm atmosphere, but also develop a creative fantasy, a sense of own style and taste for the growing up baby.
