A Feast of Fabulous – Interior Design Strategies that Always Work!

One of the trickiest things about home décor is the pressure we sometimes feel about sticking to a theme. While thematic interior design is attractive, it is not always practical or feasible. Some people also find the idea of themes too limiting for their expression.

What you need are some interior design strategies that take the focus away from the technique and bring it back to the goal. The goal is to make your home look exciting, inviting, comforting, and expressive.

So, here’s a thought; why decorate with a single theme when you can have the best of both worlds? Interior design trends in Australia make it difficult to choose one because each theme has gorgeous décor. Therefore, instead of opting for one, mix and match items from themes that compliment each other.

The modern and minimal theme can go well together, especially since many modern furniture designs have sleek edges and have the crisp appeal of minimal decorations.

Our favourite pairing is the combination of modern, rustic and ethnic. Rustic furniture is charming and adding it to modern design gives an ideal mix of warm aesthetics and contemporary decor. Ethnic décor can include traditional tapestries, baskets, and decorative plates. Their unique characteristics and representation will personalise your décor and give you a sense of belonging.

Given the state of the climate crisis, sustainable consumption has become a necessity. Reusing your decorations or buying eco-friendly ones are a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, save money, and get a stylish home.

For example, bamboo furniture is common in several countries because it is eco-friendly, sturdy, and gaining popularity. You can also choose sustainable options by using LED bulb supporting fixtures.  Featured products available at Bunnings

Fabulous, Elegant & Sophisticated

Generally, interior design trends are never linear, and you are always free to choose options that match your personality, the remaining décor in the house, and your needs.

Minimal decor declutters the space and reduces constant visual stimulation. It has an automatic premium aesthetic with elegant and sophisticated personality traits. The best part is that you can achieve this opulent look without spending an equivalent sum.

Make sure you keep an eye out for interesting, little items for your minimal home. 

Finally, make sure you add your personal touch to the interior décor no matter which combination you have tried out so far. Your personal touch can be a guitar wall if you are a musician, medals and trophies if your kids regularly win prizes at school.

You can also fill the space with paintings (if you are a painter or collector) or choose colours you love and find comforting.
