Infuse Your Home's Design With Creativity!

I've often found myself watching home shows on television and liking the interior design, only to later come to the realization that I don't have a budget in the hundreds of thousands. However, there are all kinds of cool decorating and interior design techniques that don't take much money. Rather, they take creativity. My wife and I have all kinds of fun decorations that didn't cost much, but that get a lot of attention from guests and that also compliment the space where they are. This blog is here to help you discover how to put your creativity to work in your home.

Are You Decorating Your New Family Room?

Do you already have a decorating plan for your new family room? Maybe you have already selected the furnishings for the room, but you are a bit stumped as to how to enhance the area. If that's the case, from doing creative picture framing for the walls to choosing accent pieces, here are some ideas that might help you to plan an attractive room that you can enjoy with your family and friends.

Custom Picture Frames

Think of unique ways you can decorate the walls of your new family room with picture framing. If you have selected a theme, focus on that as you consider what you'll put on the walls. For example, if you have chosen a Western theme, one idea would be to frame paintings of things like stagecoaches and cowboys. Another idea would be to frame posters of classic movies like Shane or Hondo. You can even have things like horse shoes and barbed wire custom framed. 

Maybe you have selected a beach theme for your family room. In that case, consider having things like sand dollars and other beautiful shells customer framed in shadow boxes. Framed pictures or paintings of sailboats, lighthouses and beach scenes would also be great in a family room with a beach theme. 

No matter the theme of your family room, consider having a rogue's gallery that features photographs of family members and close friends. Consider framing the photographs in slim, black frames. Or, if you want the rogue's gallery to be more dramatic, consider selecting frames of many different colors.

Accent Pieces

Again, go with whatever theme you have selected. For example, if you selected a Western theme, look for throw pillows that depict western art. Lamps that look like cowboy boots and actual cowboy boots with faux sunflowers would be a nice touch. In addition to the custom framed paintings and photographs, consider adding stenciled sayings on the walls. For example, "Take Yer Boots Off And Sit A Spell" would be a fun stencil idea.

Whether you selected a Western theme, a beach theme, or no theme at all, just enhance the room with things you love. Maybe you have a quilt you received as a wedding gift many years ago. No matter the theme, you can probably find a place for that quilt. Think of displaying books, too. For example, if you have traveled to foreign countries, display coffee table books that show pictures of places you've been.
