Hello World! After moving into a new home for the first time, you’ll notice that your room seems a little dull and drab. Livening it up doesn’t have to be costly or time consuming. A few small decorating tips can help you to go from drab to fab in no time. Before starting with any decorating it’s important to establish what your theme is. Once you have a theme the rest will come easy. A theme doesn’t have to be something like “pirates” or “barney”. Your theme can be stripes or flowers or something as simple as sticking to monochrome.
A step up from plain wallpaper is to have the wallpaper printed with a cute photo. It will make your room feel homey and take care of most of the decorating.
Get creative! Let your inner artist come free and create a masterpiece. You can paint anything you want and if you really don’t have much of an artistic side, opt for abstract art. Painting two lines on a blank canvas also qualifies as art if you call it abstract.
