Interior Design New Year’s Resolutions: Welcome 2022 with Style
It’s a New Year! We came up with these Interior Design New Year’s Resolutions for you and your home!
These tips from the point of view of an Interior Designer can truly make an impact on you, your family, and your guests. Like you, we’ve been busy thinking about fresh starts and changes we’d like to strive for, both in business and at home. As an Interior Design Firm, we had the privilege of helping and watching as countless clients’ lives were positively impacted by the changes, big and small, that we made to their spaces. It’s one of the parts of what we do that warms our hearts and lets us know that we are making an impact for the better in those around us!
1. Create a cozier bedroom
To design the bedroom retreat of your dreams, introduce strategic lighting, more greenery, and upgraded bedding. Not sure where to start? An upholstered headboard can set the foundation for your design scheme.
2. Start layering patterns.
Sometimes all it takes is an energetic pattern to transform a space. Mix prints within the same color family for a trendy, Instagram-worthy look.
If you’re reluctant to try bold colour all over a room, settle for an accent wall. A pop of colour, like this bathroom’s olive green wall, never fails to pull a space together.
4. Use labels to find what you need easily.
Labels don’t just make it easy to find exactly what you need — they’re a surefire way to give shelves full of baskets a cohesive feel.
5. Show off your style with color.
If you live for daring looks, consider revamping your kitchen with a new patterned backsplash in a bold hue. If you don’t have the money for a renovation job, try colorful kitchen accessories or dinnerware for a playful touch instead.
6. Upgrade your store room.
Make your store room a focal point rather than an eyesore with a few simple upgrades, like a bold paint color, a pegboard for your kids’ latest artwork, and hidden storage for coats and shoes.
7. Style your bookshelf.
Design pros know not to let books take over shelves without weaving in a few stylish decor accents. Think ceramics, glass vases, framed photos, and woven baskets to corral toys.
8. Embrace clever organization tools.
You can bring function and organization to just about any space in your interior design. The perfect example? Add a chalkboard panel to the side of your refrigerator to keep track of your weekly grocery list.
9. Craft a relaxing bathroom.
If you’re committed to making self-care a priority this year, start off on the right foot by hanging bunches of eucalyptus in your shower.
10. Make your laundry room stand out.
From graphic wallpaper to baskets on wheels, washing clothes won’t ever feel like a chore if you give your laundry room the design attention it deserves.
If you don’t have the luxury of dedicating an entire room to an office setup, a simple nook can get the job done. Pair a high stool with a compact tabletop and use a mirror, art, and a small floral arrangement to really make the space your own.
12. Ban clutter from bathroom shelves.
Maintain orderly bathroom shelves by placing makeup brushes, hair tools, and smaller items in containers and purging any unwanted products.
13. Decorate with plants.
One of the best ways to boost your mood and add personality to your space is with greenery. Go for an oversized plant, like a Parlor Palm or Yucca, to make a huge impact.
It’s no surprise that natural light can do wonders for a room as well as your mood. Enjoy its benefits by positioning your living room seating near the window and choosing window treatments that allow light to easily pour into your space.
15. Keep your pantry organized.
A combination of baskets and clear containers with lids can easily make your open pantry look more polished.
Now the fun part will be deciding which of these New Year’s Resolutions for you and your home to do first!
