Decorating or redecorating your home is far from being a simple and easy task. It is a complicated challenge that requires deep thinking and a great deal of hard work. Basically, this entails a lot of research in order to know the best decoration styles that may fit our home. Of course, one cannot embark on a decoration adventure without the full understanding of what to do, which to decorate, and what amount to spend. In order to be successful in one’s home decorating goal, he or she must first be ready for it.

First of all, there should be a complete understanding that home decorating is not just about putting up decorations. Indeed, home decorating is way more than that. Basically, it is all about art – as a matter of fact, this is where a combination and a concoction of artistic ideas merged into a meaningful whole. In simplistic and concrete terms, home decorating involves matching designs, colors, textures, and even motifs. For instance, a golden framed mirror might not be suitable in a room where the motif is centered on native materials. Such an item might look grand and luxurious, but it is truly and largely out of place in a room mentioned in the example. Basically, if the motif or theme is native-material centered, then your items must be in harmony with your theme.

What if in your opinion your room does not have a theme? What if you like a more eclectic look where anything goes? Well, everything has a theme. Even the eclectic look of a little bit of everything is a theme.  Believe it or not, some spend a lot of money and try very hard to achieve the eclectic look, while making it seem like a haphazard design put together on a shoestring budget. As an example of one way to achieve an eclectic look; is to add flowers to a contemporary vase, set atop an antique entry table.  This can set the decorating tone for your entire house. Don’t stop at the vase: If you place large a mottled mirror, on the wall, the image of the flower arrangement will to dance off it,  and you’ll have created a picture-perfect scene.  You’re still not finished though: the inclusion of antique candle holders or decorative jars that may only look like antiques, will tie the entire eclectic scene together.

If you want to keep it simple, then opt for a balanced and light motif. Do not bring in heavily decorated Eclectic decorating ideasdisplays. Instead, buy light materials which are inexpensive and understated. You can make the look your own by adding color to a neutral tone room.  Throw pillows or a rug in a bold color against neutral tones will bring a room to life and very inexpensively.  Other ways to add colors or change the look of a room inexpensively is by adding things like a wall clock, photo frames, coat hooks, and shelves. Here at www. gone-tomorrow.com we sell many, inexpensive décor items to help you to add a different look to your room. Don’t forget too, what a little spray of paint can do for any item! You can visit one of the DIY sites to get ideas of how to repurpose.

A clear jar can be made to look like an antique aqua glass with the use of glass paint!! Or you can make a jar look like mercury glass by swirly mirror paint around inside. Again, check the DIY or Pinterest for all the ideas you need to change up something we have on our site.

Always keep in mind though that buying more decorations for your home does not necessarily mean a better decorated home. Having decorations that do not fit the motif will only make things worse for you and your home and your pocket.
