Cool Home Design Ideas
With so many cool home design options out there, it can be difficult to decide how to decorate your space to make it your own. Your home is your refuge. It should be functional, comfortable, and reflect your personal style.
Possible sources of design theme inspiration include favorite historical time periods, your best-loved hobbies, cultures you’re interested in, or your favorite vacation spots. With some careful consideration, you can create a place that you’ll be happy to call home.
History is rich with design inspiration. If you’re enamored with the opulence and warmth of the Victorian Era style, you’re not alone. This popular design style employs deep reds, rich greens, and golds, patterns inspired by nature and ornate, often sturdily crafted furniture, generally made of dark woods. Window treatments from this era were usually of the “soft” variety, such as sheer curtains in rooms where natural light was desired, and luxurious drapery panels in areas where privacy and a more stately look was desired.
If you’re taking a slightly newer page from the history book, you can draw inspiration from retro styles from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Homes decorated in this style typically use lots of earthy base colors, accented by citrus tones, and deep purple and electric blues.
Retro-futuristic designs, in the vein of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic design language pair well with this look, as do Vertical Blinds and Mini Blinds in bold colors.
Vacation at Home
After arriving back home from a great vacation, it can be difficult to return to the daily grind. Fortunately, you can keep a little bit of that adventurous spirit with you by bringing it into your interior design.
Mix Woven Wood Shades with bold animal prints, subtle browns, grays, and whites, and classic furniture in complementary colors to add an exotic African feel to your living room.
Patterned ceramic tiles; rustic, textured walls; and bright, but natural colors can all be put together to create a festive Latin American theme. For window treatments, opt for bright, color-coordinated curtains, or Wood Horizontal Blinds with complementary accent tapes.
Follow Your Muse
Maybe you’re a retail manager by day, and a rock star by night. Or perhaps you’re a web designer with a burning passion for developing your own photos. Most of us have an artistic side, and it can be a great source of inspiration when designing your home.
Perhaps your home office needs a little more rock ’n’ roll. Checkerboard floors, framed posters of classic album covers, and a red Stratocaster guitar mounted proudly on the wall are all good places to start. Add some wide-slat metallic Mini Blinds, and you’re ready to rock.
Those photos you have stashed away in your attic or basement deserve to be seen. Frame your black and white photographs in clean, contemporary frames and create a modern, minimal space that embraces gray scale. The striking lines and visual repetition of Vertical Blinds might be just the thing to really make it work.
