Beautiful rooms and beautiful homes are not only wonderful to look at but wonderful to live in. The best rooms are the ones that make you feel comfortable, are a great refuge on the less than perfect days, and set the best mood for nurturing family, friends and events like birthdays or the holidays. They can be a tiny nook or a large open space; its all in the detail.
The most beautiful home feels wonderful even when they are messy.. mess just means people live there! What sets these rooms apart are the thousands of tiny details; from mood lighting to stenciled walls or painted wallpaper. It the details that give rooms their wow factor.
Sometimes a room just feels like four walls. Hang sheer curtains to the ceiling, wide and high, for a room with space and endless windows.
Long sheer curtains are luxurious; they offer privacy, add natural light into your room and create a soft mood. Accents of color can lift a room; add contemporary motifs and patterns, like a trellis pattern to older style homes for a fresh new look.
A beautiful room is functional, fun and makes you feel confident about your choices. They make it easy for family and friends to relax and connect. They lower stress, not increase it. Detail makes the difference. Here is an upholstered wall, shelving with instant mood lighting and above that family memorabilia.
Upholstered panels come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Applied in a small room like this you can change bland to wow quickly and fairly inexpensively. Or use it on a larger wall like this living room below.
You can always make your own. Here’s a video on how.

Everyone! It’s not always possible, but anything that helps you get through a stressful day is a must! Its easy to get worn out by the outside world. If you can work out what makes your room happy, and make you happy, you are doing better than most. Its not always expensive or luxurious trappings. Creating a feature or adding detail where none exists can be as simple as adding a table or bench at the foot of your bed.
The vase, flowers, books, pot and tray on this acrylic bench adds color, interest and height! Easy things to add and change almost any bedroom. This way its simple to change, update rooms and follow new trends like adding gallery photos.
Let’s not forget patio, porch, garden and backyard. Painting furniture the same color or tone, can bring everything together into one cohesive look. Details like same color but different textured and patterned coffee tables, cushions and lots of green succulents break the monochromatic look.
Details go a long way; like this simple outdoor lighting hack below. Use solar lights and you never have to worry about the ‘on’ switch.
Enjoy your homes and turn each room into a beautiful masterpiece that works for you and your family!
