A house is a structure that provides shelter for your family, but a home is a place where you can showcase your personal style, memories and personality. Why would you want to simply live in a house, when adding a few personal touches can make it your home?
Giving your home a personal touch can make it feel more warm and inviting. However, simply putting some pictures on the wall is not very creative. Instead, try one or more of these unique, yet personal home decor ideas to take your style to the next level.
1.) Family Tree. Combine nature’s elements with your genealogy to make a unique statement in your home. A family tree wall decal can be used as a focal point within your living room – or any room in your home.. On each branch, add a photo of a family member to personalize the project. Not only will it catch the eye of all your guests, but your family members will appreciate the thought and effort put into preserving the family heritage.
2.) Photo Collage Clock. If you use a Frameology frame then you can add a personal touch to your home that is unique and appealing. Simply hanging photo frames on the wall may look fine, but doesn’t really allow you to show off your personal creativity. Instead, put your frames to use as a photo collage clock. All you have to do is select 12 photos, put them in frames and arrange in a “clock-formation.” Use a clock hand kit to create the center and voila! You have a personal and eye-catching centerpiece for your wall. If you want to take it a step further, add a catchy phrase, such as “Time spent with family is worth every second.”
3.) Last-Name Memory Books. Do you have a shelf that lacks some creativity? A great way to add a personal and creative touch is to design memory books using your last name. Choose shadow-box style books that have a large binding. On the binding of each book, add a letter from your last name. In each of the books place photos and memorabilia that are related to the corresponding letter. Place the books binding-side out on the shelf so that it spells out your last name. It adds a personal touch and gives you a place that you can continue adding things that you want to remember.
4.) Travel Map. Are you someone who loves to travel? This is the best choice for you. Keep track of – and show off – all of the locations that you have traveled to by putting up a map wall decal. Mark each of the places you have visited with either a photo or a postcard so that you can enjoy the memories for years to come.
Home decor is always subjective. It is a place where you can showcase your personality, creativity and individual style. Using unique and personal ways to decorate your home will not only make it feel like yours, but it will also give others a first-hand look into your mind and memories.
