How to decorate your modern home
By AP reporter AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The holiday season can be a long time in the making, but there’s a lot of time for the decor to get its polish.
That’s especially true for an open-air home that has a big canvas for decoration.
Here are some tips for keeping the home looking its best from the inside out.1.
Buy a great looking door handle.
Don’t overlook the decorative elements of the door, which could include an open or a closed door, a door mat, curtains or other decorative elements.
The decorative elements should be well designed and executed.
The key is to keep them simple.2.
Consider adding decorative accents to the door.
Choose bright colors, or a bright pattern that will compliment the door frame and accent the light.
You can also add a bow or fringe to the interior of the house to help it stand out from the surroundings.3.
Use different decor accessories for each room.
Try hanging or hanging at the end of the room instead of in the center, or create a rug out of paper, fabric or other materials.4.
Decorate your bathroom.
The bathroom needs to have a clean and inviting feel, and adding decorations such as colorful pillows or a floral design can help add a touch of warmth and color to your home.5.
Add a small balcony for a different viewing point.
Add something to your outdoor deck, such as a table or chair.
You don’t want to ruin the view with the light from the street.6.
Find an old-fashioned, classic look.
Don the traditional look of the Victorian, or turn it into a modern twist.
For example, use a fireplace or a small tree as a base for your fireplace.7.
Decide on a style.
A home should have a consistent look from one decorating session to the next.
It may be hard to determine if your decorating skills are up to scratch, but with practice, it becomes second nature.8.
Keep it simple.
Decorating your home can be more fun if you don’t try to create an elaborate, flashy display.
The best way to do this is by using basic but functional items that you’ll likely find in most home decor stores, such an old teddy bear, a small clock, a candle holder or some small items you can find in your grocery store or at the hardware store.
