It’s hard to believe that we’re already almost in the last quarter of the year. 2020 has not turned out to be the promising year we all hoped for. However, while the COVID-19 pandemic has left most of us with extreme stress, it has also given us a lot of time. With more time in our hands, we get to value more precious moments with people we love and we also get to do things we never had the time to do before.
One of the things that people are enjoying to do nowadays is home redecorating. With longer hours spent at home, we see the value of staying in a place that is functional enough to work in and comfortable enough to unwind in. A sanctuary that’s truly our own.
You don’t have to do the whole house. Pick one or even two rooms and plan the design. Plus, you don’t need to get out of the house to buy beautiful home decor as you can do that online! Get your creative juices flowing as we give you some easy and fun ideas to help achieve that Pinterest-worthy lockdown home makeover.
Prints are never just a trend. Skim through design magazines from decades ago and you’ll never miss the presence of bold shapes and textures. The right prints always have a way to bring character and energy into the room. So if you need some boosting up for the day, a good selection of printed pieces never fail.
Start in your bedroom by accentuating with these elaborate cushion covers from Temples and Markets or carefully choosing bed covers to bring a focal point to the most important object in the room.
As for the wall, you can go for an accent wall! Use a printed wallpaper or if you’re feeling extra creative, paint it yourself with something extraordinary. It sounds risky, for sure, but if you want that head-turning transformation, that’s how you do it.
A polar opposite to the first idea, going minimalist is a refreshing take on redecorating. Studies show that clutter makes you anxious—and in today’s world, you’ll want to avoid the extra stress. Going minimalist can be done in all rooms of the house. It means using the bare essentials to create a simple and uncluttered space. Think about simplicity, clean lines, and a monochromatic palette with color used as an accent.
So, instead of adding more things, you’ll want to declutter. Get rid of things you don’t really need. But don’t be too restrained by the idea of minimalism that you forget to add a few unique decor that express your style.
If you have extra money, you can replace certain items at home. For example, you can change the coffee table or sofa with one that has a more modern design. Or if you’re redecorating the kitchen, you can find Temples and Markets table mats or table runners that are more on neutral or earthy tones.
What’s the best way to relax? Going to the spa. But unfortunately, we can’t go out, and in some cases, spas aren’t exactly open. However, you can remedy that by redecorating your bathroom or your living room and make it look and feel like an exotic spa. Spice up the living room with a Thai cushion so you can relax, read a book, or practice yoga in a more calm environment.
Buddhas are also really great in giving that temple-relaxed-feel to your home, especially if you’re going for the Thai spa design. You can get Lucky Buddhas that some believe to bring good luck to households. Or you can choose wood Buddhas or resin Buddhas, depending on which type you think best suits your design.
Complete the exotic spa vibe by getting an air purifier or humidifier and add your favorite essential oil for that ultimate spa-like experience.
There are more themes and style approaches that you can take on. Think about what you want to achieve in redecorating your home and what your purpose it. Next, consider your budget and how much time you can dedicate to the project. It could take a couple of days or even weeks to complete, but redecorating your home could take your mind off of things even for a while. So make sure it’s something you enjoy and it’s fulfilling in the end.
