DIY How do you make your home feel like you've hired an interior designer? Hmm!

Not everyone can hire an interior designer to come home and create a nice and harmonious design. Many owners want to be the ones who actually make the design decisions (DIY) and incorporate their own style. 

So, while we have great respect for interior designers and all the hard work they put into the spaces they design, we also know that there are many who love a designer look with no designer fees. We’re sure these DIY tips on how to design your home’s interior can make it happen.

Let’s take a closer look at how to decorate your home by organizing and designing a room in a space that until now only an interior designer could create. Whether you want your interior to look like a luxury hotel or just want to spice it up a bit, these tips will help. Shhh … DIY interior decoration is our little secret.

Magazines and websites are full of interior design inspiration.

           All passionate Pinners on Pinterest have a reason. People are looking for amazing home interiors. As most of us have already discovered, decorative websites can spark a spark of creativity that we never knew existed. If you haven’t yet started creating inspiration boards for your interior design, start now. This is the first step in creating the home you want.

          Go to Pinterest to find your favorite home style, go and use the “Collect these ideas” button to collect design images that will inspire you, or just grab a design magazine and cut out your favorite photos. Once you’ve found and collected some original DIY interior design images to inspire you, take a step back and take a look at all you’ve collected. It will tell a story about the design style. You might be surprised at what style you want to create.

Color scheme: use three colors or shades

           Now that you have a good idea of ​​what style you want, it’s time to choose a color palette. This is the difficult part. The colors are very personal and create an inspiring atmosphere. Whatever happens, choose a color that comes to mind when redesigning your home’s interior design. Look at the inspiration board.

What colors stand out in your recorded room? We won’t tell you which color to choose, but we recommend that you try a mix of three colors or shades DIY. A main color for the walls, another for more important details like sofas and chairs, and a third color that appears on small accessories like flowers, pillows and upholstery.

         Remember that the color is affected by the amount of light entering the house. Consider adding color by embellishing your interior with bay windows!

       Let’s say you choose a brown, teal, and tangerine color combination. Shades of brown can be your wall color, turquoise can be your choice for accent chairs or accent walls, and tangerine can be your choice for pillows and accessories.

       These three-color formulas work in any combination. Remember that three is better than one or two, because a room decorated in one color is boring. Yes, you can have an all-white room with three shades of white.

Add Texture to Your Home

       Texture is just as important as color, especially if you want a solid color combination like all white or all gray. At first glance, it looks like a monochrome piece, but a closer examination reveals shades of the same color and rich texture through the fabrics / textiles.

     The all-white bedroom features linen curtains, plush velour chairs, shiny silk cushions, wicker chairs, woven baskets and stuffed cotton sofas as well as faux fur blankets.

      All of these add texture and delight the eyes, creating a warm and rich atmosphere. A layout can describe the personality of its owner, so you can easily design a drab space using textures, patterns, and a variety of colors.

       Consider a textile that suits your lifestyle. If you have kids and dogs, you might not want a lightweight cotton sofa. Conversely, a darker leather or mohair sofa may suit your needs better. If you crave luxury, consider luxury silk curtains and pillows. Whatever your style, combine tons of fabrics to add lots of texture to your home decor.

Add big statement furniture pieces

       This is a common mistake most homeowners make. In other words, there are too many small, thin pieces in a room. A room with lounge chairs, lounge tables, and lots of small accessories will only clutter the room and distract your eyes. Instead, find a well-mixed piece.

       There is a large sofa, a club chair with skirts (feet not visible) and one or two slender chairs (depending on the space) with pretty carved feet. This is just one example, but it gives the idea of ​​mixing styles and sizes of furniture so that the room is balanced without being too bulky and not too thin.

       Even if you are decorating a small apartment, there are plenty of decorating ideas to try. Most designers recommend that even the smallest room have a big impression, like a large closet or wardrobe. The combination of large and small is the key to successful interior design. This rule also applies to accessories.

Use DIY Trays, Decorative Bowls and Baskets

Designers love to use trays, decorative bowls, and sometimes baskets to organize collections or loose items that need a home. To add glamor, add a beautiful gold tray to your coffee table, ottoman or side table. 

           Place pretty candles, books and a small bowl of colorful stones on a platter. Small landscapes like this seem frivolous, but they’re essential for a layered and decorated aesthetic. For a more rustic approach, try homemade woven baskets.

       Baskets are a great decorating tool for hiding a lot of clutter. Try to create these little niches all over your house. By organizing these everyday items as works of art on display, you’ll love the way a tray or basket collects bath soap and perfume.

Add Flowers to Each Room

        Go back and take a look at all the inspiration boards. What do you see? Do you see flowers or plants in almost every room? We bet it does. It sounds like a simple tip, but adding natural items like flower arrangements, live plants, seashells or stone vases can add the finishing touch to your home’s interior design.

       There are many easy-to-maintain plants that you can purchase at home. If fed and watered properly, it will last for years. Most designers will tell you to avoid fake flower arrangements. If flowers or plants aren’t your thing, try using other natural items like twigs or feathers in a large jar. The natural design adds a final touch to the room: “the interior designer is here”.

        If you can’t hire an interior designer, you can still have a house that looks like the one you had. All of these little tips and tricks work together to create a DIY warm and well-designed home interior. Add textures, colors, individual furniture and natural elements to your home today. If you are unsure of the final result or preparation, take a photo.

Bedroom photos allow you to see the design from a different perspective, helping you see if something is wrong somewhere along the way. Remember, this is your home and you should be living in it. So, create a home that you love, a home that represents who you are.


          Now that you know how to design your interior, it’s time to put these tips into practice. With a little help from sites like Pinterest, you can put interior design in your hands. Whether you prefer vintage, rustic, or minimalist styles, these tips will help you add an interesting touch to and personalize your home.
