As the New Year period is over and we’re now making our way into 2023, why not take a moment to look at some ways in which you can level up your home’s décor? With a refreshing new style to partner with a positive outlook, it can set a good precedent for the rest of the year. Let’s make it a good one!
Rejuvenate your colour scheme
Colour is the simplest way to breathe new life into your home and when used with purpose it can improve the overall mood of a space. When choosing your new scheme, break it down into three key elements:
- A neutral base
- A feature colour
- An accent colour
Create a gallery wall
Are your walls looking a little bare and uninspired? Creating a feature gallery wall is an effective way to make a room appear to be finished and well-thought out even if you are still in the process of redesigning it.
- Start from the centre of the wall and work outward
Explore local charity shops and markets
Bangkok is home to the largest outdoor market in South-East Asia, Chatuchak Market, which means you shouldn’t have any trouble at all finding exciting pieces that are looking for a good home. Find some distinctive and beautiful items that can elevate the overall aesthetic charm of your space while lending to the colour scheme.
Add a splash of life
If you don’t have any plants in your home at the moment, it’s time to bring the outdoors inside! House plants are woefully underrated despite the many physical and mental health benefits that they provide.
Not only are they aesthetically gorgeous, but they can help purify the air that you breathe, add colour, and ultimately improve your mood.
Experiment with textures
Using various textures is a great way to create character in your home – particularly if it’s feeling a little sterile. Implement contrasting materials to make your home space feel lively and dynamic. For example:
- Chunky blankets and faux fur rugs
- Gold accents and brass fixtures
- Wicker wash baskets and natural wood coffee tables
Create the illusion of space with mirrors
Particularly if your condo isn’t very spacious, adding some well-placed mirrors can make the room feel much larger with the illusion of space. The best part? Mirrors come in so many different styles and designs making them very easy to implement into any home décor while increasing energy flow.
Use your shelves with purpose
Again, smaller condos that are wanting for space can make you feel claustrophobic. As such, you should take to the walls and utilise this space with some well-placed shelving. Just make sure that you don’t over stack them. Allow your shelves to breathe by using them as statement pieces with a few choice books, some small potted plants, and other darling items that you find when perusing Bangkok’s many night markets and craft stalls.
These are just a handful of the things that you can try when wanting to upgrade the décor of your home without having to spend too much money. Just remember these key principles:
- Less is more
- Lighting is essential
- Create layers
If you don’t relish the idea of redecorating and would much prefer to move on from your home and start fresh, you’ll be spoiled for choice for condos in Bangkok. Take the condos for sale at Elio Del Nest as an example.
