You’ve spent weeks, if not months, painstakingly choosing the colors, the furniture, the accessories, and even what you thought were the finishing touches. Yet even still, your living room feels like there’s something missing. Sound familiar? Perhaps that missing ingredient is, in fact, you.
The living room is the place in the home where people spend the most time, and it’s somewhere that needs to both look great and feel comfortable. But it should also be unmistakably yours, not just a generic expanse that could grace the pages of any home decor magazine. So if you feel like your living room is dull, uninspiring, and lacking in that individual touch, here are 5 ways to stamp your personality on it.
Custom Canvas Art
Photos of family, friends, special occasions, or memories that you love to be reminded off are all great for adding a bit of yourself to your living room. We’ve got the perfect way to transform your digital images into awesome works of art - with one of our personalized wall canvases. All you have to do is upload your favourite picture or pictures to our site and our team of designers will do the rest. You can even let us know if you have any special requests like a quote or design adding to it.
Add Some Color
Neutral tones are all the rage when it comes to decorating our living rooms, but let’s face it, no one’s favourite color is magnolia. Put a bit of your personality into the room by adding some colorful touches that bring it to life. You don’t even have to repaint as there are lots of creative ways to add color without getting the brushes out and the overalls on. Introducing a few shades that you love will instantly add personality.
Display Your Travels
Whether you’re a frequent international explorer or prefer to vacation closer to home in the U.S., no doubt you’ve picked up some interesting pieces along the way. Don’t hide them away, instead incorporate them into your living room decor. Maybe it’s some pebbles or shells from your favourite beach, or perhaps it’s an intricate wood carving from some far flung land. Whatever it is, make a space for them, they’ll take you back to that happy place every time you set eyes on them.
Share Your Hobbies
All too often our hobbies are things that we hide away and don’t share with other people. But no matter how embarrassing they might be, they’re a part of us and we should be proud of them. So no matter if you’re an avid stamp collector or a knitting enthusiast, get it all out in the open and be proud.
Putting your own time and effort into making something for your living room is a great way of personalizing it. Even if you have no practical talents, there are still things that you’re capable of doing, and you don’t even have to start from scratch. Upcycling is an easy way to create something new from something old and the end product will undoubtedly be uniquely you.
