Let’s talk senses!!
You probably have a fairly good idea of how to create a room that stimulates your sense of sight. It’s easy really; just make sure all your rooms pop with bright colours! To make sure you don’t go overboard, you could simply paint your walls in a neutral colour but then add some bright rugs, cushions and wall art. I also like to add lots of patterns into my decor as well. Just a few years ago, it was thought that clashing patterns was bad taste. But these days it is very much in fashion, so feel free to go wild with all your patterns!
I know lots of people who like to make it easy to play music in their rooms as they find it very relaxing having background music on. But this doesn’t mean you need to have bulky speakers all over your house! In fact, it’s now ever so easy to connect discreet speakers to your main music hub using a Bluetooth connection. Just buy some Bluetooth speakers and place them in discreet places in each room.
You might be scratching your head wondering how you can create a decor that can invigorate your sense of smell. Well, it’s obvious when you think about it – just bring in some flowers and plants into your home! These will have a natural fragrance that can really freshen up the air around you.
There are a couple of fun ways to play with your sense of touch when it comes to decor. Firstly, make sure that you have sufficient heating in each room so that you always feel comfortable. These days, your heating fixtures don’t have to be unsightly as there are now many stores that offer stunning designer radiators that will blend in with your design. It’s also a good idea to include different fabrics into your room such as fleecy blankets on your sofas and natural worktops in your kitchen.
We can’t forget about the sense of taste, but how should you incorporate this into your decor? I just leave a few bowls of sweets and candies on the coffee table in my living room. Some brightly coloured ones so that they match the decor! Yum!
Next time you need to decorate a room, don’t just think about what it will look like. It’s a good idea to consider how all your senses will react to it.
