The power of decor should never be underestimated. Whether you’re living in a small, student apartment or just finished a big renovation project, decor can transform any space into a stylish home you’ll want to spend time in. Interior Director and Head Designer of Modern and Classic Interiors, Kristiana Forde, built her career on this belief, helping homeowners across the UK make their dream homes a reality with quality design and bespoke decor. If you’re looking for a few ways to spruce up your space like a pro, give these genius decor ideas a try.
Mid-century end tables
Mid-century furniture has made a big comeback in the last few years, and it’s no surprise why. With sleek lines, gentle curves and natural forms, the stylish pieces make any space look modern and classic all at once. Investing in one or two end tables from this period will give your home a chic and timeless aesthetic.
Pendants lights are another home decor addition that can completely transform the look and feel of a space. Whether you’re attracted to simple hanging pendants or are drawn to the more edgy, geometric shaped designs, these lights instantly make your home look more luxurious and larger thanks to their lengthy vertical cords which guide the eye upward.
Whether hanging or leaning, mirrors are a great way to make a space look bigger, brighter and more stylish. Recently, round mirrors have become a top trend, as well as pill-shaped and wonky frameless ones. These decorative pieces create an optical illusion of a larger space by reflecting their surroundings all while adding another layer to your unique interior decor.
While it's recommended to keep with one style, a blended one can be brought together with a thoughtful layout that marries each element harmoniously. To achieve this, it's important to have a layout that flows from one room to another without being interrupted by obnoxious ottomans or loud wall art. By framing your room with furniture and adding a few small, circular pieces in the centre, your space will feel spacious and welcoming.
Although essential, we often do away with storage if it clashes with our decor. Fortunately, there are now plenty of bespoke pieces that enhance your space without having to compromise on storage. Whether installing stylish oak shelves, a built-in bookcase or purchasing multi-functional furniture, stylish storage options give your home the edge it's missing along with the extra space.
