Behold this home decor catalog!

Suppose you have planned to design your home or redecorate it around a specific theme. The very first thing you’ll have to do is make a list of things that come under that theme. Create a list of your favorite interests and the theme you want to reflect. To portray it in reality, you need to have all the required elements.

Designing your home thematically helps to bring a unique piece of art. Be it an online or offline store, run your eyes over the decor items which go well with your requirements and the theme. You can also make purchases to the interiors based on a specific place you love or you dream to visit in your life. Touch of nature, the warmth of the desert, or a splash of the sea, no matter what theme you choose! 

Let’s say you have the theme of a “sea” in your head. Let’s begin with…

Living room: a feast for eyes

Whether your living space is open or built in the form of a room, it is the most spacious room among all areas. Needless to say, it’s the central system of a home! Here, you step in after work, welcome your guests, and spend most of your alone or family time! In order to give a thematic expression to your living room, you’ll have to start with walls. If your living area has a big wall, you can get it painted panoramically with a landscape of the sea or a beach, whatever fancy you!

Clueing in…

“Fake it till you make it!”

Transform eyesore areas so that they won’t look odd and will sync well with the theme.

An exemplary plot: the radiators in your living area can throw off your theme’s vision. In that case, you have an option to make it part of your theme: give an illusion of a ship, waves, or a classy bridge by painting it that way.

Don’t overload; other parts of your house also need to be adored!

Go with the “Design by Room” approach; it helps decorate your home without getting things muddled up. No mandatory to overload just the living area; your bedroom, kitchen, and restroom are yet to be decorated! Moreover, if your pocket says just one room, then stick to it; you can decorate the rest of your indoor spaces a few months later. 

Choose, Consider, Curate

Choose decor elements wisely, consider the essence of your space and then curate them to bring the homely vibe! Make a list of elements that you and your family need and enjoy in the long run. The most requisite aspects should be your priority, like lightning, space dimensions, etc. Also, remember that the functionality of interiors also matters along with style.

Based on the theme (sea), you can buy lighting lamps like coastal lighthouse lamps and coastal pendant lamps made of natural rattan material. These lightning styles will surely keep the theme you plan for your home. You can also use furniture, art, and accessories embellished with seashells.
