Turning a house into your home is a very personal thing indeed. Your home should reflect your likes, your loves and your personality – something nobody else can reproduce. It is your own stamp, so don’t be afraid to be bold and brave. Here are some ways you can turn your house into a home, just for you.
Don’t underestimate the power of accessories
The right home accessories provide the finishing touches to any room. Candles and blankets can create a cosy atmosphere in keeping with the hygge theme, perfect for the colder change of seasons. Complete the look of bookcases with stylish bookends, or why not create a welcoming environment for guests with a tray ready laid out for afternoon tea and biscuits.
Create your own art
There is nothing quite like creating your own artwork to put your own stamp on a place. Abstract art, or block painted canvases can provide a splash of colour to the walls. Or you might even want to go the whole hog and give each room in the house a particular theme. Check out this tutorial on painting a castle wall effect for a child’s room to get you started!
Do not be afraid to express yourself through the use of colours. Even one feature wall painted in a complementary colour to the rest of the room can create a tranquil, relaxing, or vibrant mood, depending on your preferences.

Make memories and enjoy it
Make your home a haven that everyone loves to be in and you will create memories of fun times and precious moments formed there. Whatever else you bring into your home, it will be the memories that matter after all else. Whatever your personal preferences, everyone loves good memories!
