Keys to decorate your home
The following tips will help you to decorate your home in this unique territory.
Maximize natural light
You can opt for large windows that, in turn, serve as a gateway to the outdoor areas of the house. If you want to add more light to your darker spaces you can place mirrors in strategic areas to reflect it, as well as opt for light tones, rather than dark.
To enhance the feeling of warmth, natural and quality materials (if possible handmade) is prioritized over any other more futuristic or artificial decorative element. Fibres such as rattan or bamboo are pure trend and we can include them in our home through baskets, lamps, and even furniture such as chairs or chests of drawers, with or without small notes of colour.
In natural decoration, the textiles that fit best are cotton and linen, and experts bet on vaporous, fresh fabrics in soft colours that contrast with other coloured complements such as cushions, tableware, plants, vases, etc. Bed linen, curtains, and even tablecloths will give your home the cosy effect it needs.
Shades such as white serve as a base, both for the walls and for the floor and certain textiles, but also blue in small touches. We can also opt for light blue and olive green or other colours from nature such as beige, ocher, cream, and stone. The secret of success is to build, through colour, spaces not only brighter but also more spacious and in which we will achieve a greater sense of calm and tranquillity.
Simplicity is one of the keys to a cosier home and this is achieved with minimalism.
Use a few colours, little furniture, and little decoration to create relaxing and simple spaces.
In these spaces, less is more, and the different textures do the talking. There is a strong presence of white, the furniture is simple and without too much ornamentation.
