If you’ve adopted the trend of small home living, you may have had moments when you felt some frustration as you tried to adjust to less space, less storage and unique decorating challenges. Living in a small house has enough advantages to make it worth the minor adjustment period that often comes with moving into a small home. There are certain decorating goals that are actually easier to achieve in a small home than in a large home. It’s easy to create an atmosphere of serenity in a small house without compromising on style, elegance and sophistication.
No room can feel peaceful and serene when it’s visually cluttered with decorative accessories or when it’s overloaded with furniture. Carefully select the basic pieces of furniture a room requires and refrain from adding unnecessary pieces. Instead of adding lots of decorative accessories to the room, opt for just a few dramatic pieces. Statement pieces that can stand alone while making an impressive statement are ideal for small spaces.
Serenity and simplicity go hand in hand when it comes to decorating. It doesn’t matter whether you’re striving to create a serene, tranquil, relaxing or simplistically elegant atmosphere, the color of the walls, as well as what you display on the walls, will have a major impact on how well you achieve your goal. Chinoiseries that feature serene colors and delicate designs in their murals can be a stunning, elegant decorative feature in any area of your home where beauty and serenity are a priority. Such an elegant feature eliminates the need for wall art. You’ll want to limit the furniture that you place against a wall with a mural so that the visual beauty is not interrupted. Glass or acrylic tables and minimalistic chairs are ideal furniture choices for an area with a mural.
Designers continually discover unique ways to incorporate the exquisite beauty and intricate Chinoiserie patterns and motifs from centuries ago into modern day decors. Perhaps they remain popular because everyone needs a place of serenity in their home.
