Decorating got me like…

It is almost impossible to nail down any single moment where decor has mattered in my life. Truth is, decor always matters. Decor is the ambiance, the vibes, the feeling that you get when you walk into a room. Want a room with strong, commanding feel? Imitate Ancient Greek. Want a laid back feel? Use inspiration from the 70’s. One does not simply choose to use decor or not, because it is always there. Your choice of decor is your own way to influence how others feel when they enter your territory. You get to mandate how others see your home, office, bedroom, desk, anywhere and everywhere.

Decor lets me design my room in a way that I feel comfortable bringing others in;  knowing that the connotation they get from my choices accurately represents who I am. I will always be the first to offer my home as a place for a group meeting. Not because I don’t want go to other places, but because I have a pride in my decor. It makes me who I am. I reflect what my decor shows, just as much as it reflects me: I cannot study in a mess, and so my room is well kept and organized to make sure that my mind is well kept and organized. If I am preparing for an interview, I will put on my outfit and check it in the mirror of my room. If the outfit fits in with the decor, it will reflect me well in the interview.

The thing I appreciate most about decor is not how I do it, but the experience of discovering how others do it. It gives you the opportunity to really step into their world, their head space, and literally explore it. I would never look down on someone’s decor, as it is just simply an extension of who they are, and I want nothing more than to connect with others. If I walk into someone’s room and can sympathize with why and how they design it, I know I can truly come to be friends.

So in the end, it is essential to know that decor always matters.

Decor is A Necessity

office decor


The world is constantly changing. People, technology, nature, politics and society are all in a continuous state of transformation, whether we like it or not. I personally feel that being a common man, I have little to no say in how the world works. This makes it vital for me to have a safe place, and that safe place is the artistic embodiment of my house’s decor. If I don’t like a lamp I can get rid of it and if I don’t like how my couch is placed, I can alter the setting. Altering the décor of my house is an important way for me to exercise some of my flamboyant and meticulous behavior. Decorating my house for the holidays is my way of airing my desire to celebrate holidays. Along these lines décor is very important to many people to exhibit their abundance and creativity to guests. While for me personal fulfillment is the main motive for having and updating my décor, there is still an aspect of vanity. It is not uncommon for me to want to impress others by bettering the appearance of my house.
The home is called a sanctuary and there are many reasons for this, a major one being the décor of the home. A person has the privilege to design his home according to his/her comfort level. Wood flooring or ambient lighting may be what makes a person feel truly relaxed. This is why some people can only express themselves fully when at home at their optimum comfort levels. You will only jump on the bed you love and sit on the kitchen counter that you cherish. A home that is a reflection of your personality will allow your inner self to be fully expressed. Maybe bright colors create the right atmosphere for some people. In the same way the amiable color of a rug and the smooth texture of the warps in between a person toes may contribute greatly to the amenity experienced by a person. A perfect example of how décor provides comfort is the sheer number of family pictures hung on the walls of almost every household. The familiarity of the associated faces in the photographs and the familiarity of the décor in a home contribute in a familiar way to making a house a home.
Décor is a fundamental for every household in the world. Along with being necessary the décor of a house can be symbolic of the people living in it.

Home is where the heart is

Home is supposed to be where the heart is but, how much heart do we put into our homes?  When we allow someone into a place we have made “home”, we are often sharing a bit of ourselves at the same time.  The furnishings, color scheme, wall hangings, and extras that fill this space are not simply a reflection of taste or financial standing.  We often choose decor with some deliberate intent and may even use it as a means to help bolster an image that we hope to cultivate however, our choice of decor frequently reflects a subconscious state of mind while, at the same time, influencing it.

This reflection may result in a positive or negative feedback loop depending on the status of our projection.  Fear or a preference for the “safe” route can lead to dull or washed out colors along with simple lines and patterns used in excess, yet a desire to appear bold or exotic can result in the reverse.  When a living space is used as more of a showplace and is not “lived in”, it does not feel like a “home” and is clearly a projection of an image one wishes to convey.  A home that is “lived in” contains elements that indicate regular use such as points of wear on furniture and books, items absent from their usual placement or left in an open space, and at least some dust or dirt that has accumulated in one or more areas of the residence.

A home that is “lived in” but not fully cared for on the other hand, can become cluttered, filthy, and impassable.  A “home” that one feels comfortable in can range from filthy to sterile, sparse to cluttered, dimly lit to exceedingly bright.  A healthy balance between all of these aspects can help to promote a positive atmosphere that will not only encourage a sense of well-being and comfort for the residents of a space but, visitors will also be more likely to enjoy time spent there.  Cleanliness without sterility, comfortable furnishings without clutter, and a sufficient amount of natural light alongside artificial lighting that has been chosen for color, as much as for efficiency, are often key to a pleasant atmosphere as these elements have been associated with tranquility, balance, warmth  and, at times, imagination.
