Giving Your Knoxville Home a Personal Touch

Your home is your castle, as they say, so you should decorate it in a way that represents your style and taste. Sometimes we put decorating aside as a frivolous and silly hobby, but the truth is that a well decorated and personalized home can have a strong impact on your mood. Channel your inner happiness and build a home that speaks your mind! The Knoxville movers have gathered a few suggestions to help you get started down the path of letting your décor be a reflection of yourself.

Don’t be afraid to play with color. One of the best suggestions we have heard when it comes to picking colors to decorate with is to look inside your closet. What colors are you drawn to when it comes to dressing? Likely these are colors that make you feel good, so you should incorporate them into your home if possible. If some colors seem to bold or dark, go with a lighter shade in that color family.

Allow natural light to play a role. Light changes the way that paint looks, and it is a warming both to your body and to your mood. Sunlight and rays of Vitamin D coming in through the window are an inexpensive way to get happy! Don’t feel the need to cover every window with a curtain or pick up blackout shutters or blinds. A little sunlight is a good thing.

Explore the idea of painting soffits and the ceiling. Many people feel a room looks best with a white ceiling and white trim, however, there is no good reason to leave it that way if you have something else in mind. Play with colors, and paint a swatch of the ceiling to see if you like the idea of the ceiling matching the walls. Often, this paint practice will make the ceilings feel higher and the room feel more cohesive.

Add elements of contrast. Incorporating light and dark hues in a room is a great way to strike an aesthetic balance. Don’t feel intimidated by adding black and white pieces, or mixing light gray and bold eggplant. The juxtaposition of colors is what gives you a unique look apart from other homes and spaces.

At the end of the day, remember to fill your home with things that you love. There is no limit to what you can have in your home, and at the end of the day you are the one who should be happy with it! Follow your heart and remember… if it doesn’t work, you can likely return it!
