Elegance, like beauty, is subjective. However, there are some basic elements of elegance that we can all recognize and use to distinguish between homes that are more elegant than others. A lovely space in which you live is a reflection and extension of who you are and what you enjoy.
How to Create a Beautiful Home Environment
Choose a color scheme. Choosing a color scheme that includes 2-3 primary colors and 3-4 complementary colors. For example, you may use cream, brown, and green as your primary hues. Champagne, ivory, beige, and pastel green are examples of complementary colors that are a few shades lighter or darker than “cream, brown, and green.” Unless you’re going for contrast for a specific feature or cause, avoid harsh colors or any hue that contrasts heavily with other colors. Choose a color palette for the primary elements in the rooms. Major furnishings, such as bookcases and sofas, as well as the room itself, in the form of paint and carpet, are the main things.
Green leafy plants, photo frames, and draperies are all good additions.
Make the room’s focal point. When people come, this focal point or feature should be the first item that catches their attention or initiates a dialogue. It could be an ornately framed mirror, a striking painting, an unique couch, or a gallery wall. Allow only one thing to be the focal point of the room, and everything else will blend in and support it. When a room has too much going on, it becomes crowded, giving a stressful, rather than cohesive, appearance.
Maintain a clutter-free environment. Mail, shopping catalogs, and anything else that isn’t appealing to the eye or serves an urgent use is considered clutter. Make a rule that no more than five objects shall be on the table or any counter. Make sure nothing is dangling or that there aren’t too many display goods and trinkets.
Keep everything you use on a regular basis out of sight as much as possible. Make an effort to put similar items together. Keep remote controls, for example, in a lovely basket so that only one thing is visible on the coffee table. Keep magazines in an opaque holder on the sofa where they can be conveniently accessed, but only the number of magazines can be seen when looking from the top. Only keep your favorite scents on your make-up table, and collect all of your cosmetics in a basket. The objective is to have easy access while maintaining a cohesive, straightforward appearance. Cover and contain your items with cabinets, boxes, or baskets. If you go for glass cabinets, make sure to maintain the contents organized. Clutter merely obstructs the flow of the room.
Choose attractive, important items and use them to infuse your home with personality. A lovely, stylish home demonstrates that it is well-loved and cared for. Avoid zen-like aesthetics or too minimalistic decoration. Those are for business offices with a very sharp,’switched on’ sense rather than a relaxing, pleasant, warm atmosphere. Strict selection is the key. Select a couple of favorite items that bring back fond memories or could be a wonderful discussion starter—things you’ll want to share with people, depending on the space you have. Perhaps a lovely vase of freshly picked flowers from your yard, some unique artifacts obtained on your travels, or pieces of art created by you or a friend could be the focal point of your dining table.
Maintain a clean environment. Make a housekeeping system and refer to it until it becomes automatic. Make a list of tasks for each day, week, fortnight, and month. Pay attention to the trash—never leave it until it’s full. If you cook a lot, make sure the scents don’t linger and spread to other rooms to keep your house feeling fresh. Avoid stains and clean up any that do occur. You’ll be pleasantly pleased at how much easier housework and upkeep become after the clutter is gone.
