How to create a space that fits your identity

Self-expression is different for everyone. For some people it is through the written word, for some, it is through the spoken word or it can be through other media such as fashion, hair, or even decor.

 

People often believe that your home is a part of your personality. The way you design your space reflects your preferences and lifestyle. Whether you are bold, edgy, or more laid back, your personal tastes influence the choices you make when you are decorating your home. In fact, this is one of the biggest advantages of interior design. Everyone is unique and chooses different ways to express themselves through their home’s decor. Some may even say that the living room is the best representation of your personality. The furniture you have, the accessories you display, and the presence of many colors and patterns are simply dictated by your personal tastes.

Luckily, there are so many options you can choose from to decorate your home to fit your personality. Whether you are going for a minimalist, chic or vintage interior design, there are several things in your home that express what kind of person you are.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, “One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people.” Trees, shrubs, and turf also filter air by removing dust and absorbing other polluting substances like carbon monoxide and other toxic gases. After trees catch those unhealthy particles, rain washes them to the ground.

Self-expression through your walls and colors

The first thing your guests will notice when they come to your house is the walls. They might be painted with bold colors, including wallpaper or others which match your furniture and change the feel of the entire room. The beauty behind such additions is that they come in many designs and patterns that can satisfy anyone’s personal taste. 

The most obvious way of expressing your personality is through your color choices. Every shade has a meaning and it corresponds with who you are as a person. 

 

When you choose your colors, you often go for the one that is based on the purpose of the room. For example, if you are going for a relaxed atmosphere in your bedroom, you usually use white or baby blue. As a shade, white represents you as a neat and peaceful person. 

A brighter color like yellow expresses your creativity giving off warmth and happiness. Red is the perfect representation of your bold personality and passionate nature. You can also mix up neutrals with bold colors to express different aspects of your personality.

The Furniture

Just like your accent pieces, the type of furniture design also reflects your personality. Everyone wants a piece of furniture that is comfortable, practical, and in line with your personal taste. For example, people who go for a minimalist interior design usually have a simpler, easygoing personality. They prefer furniture that provides comfort and warmth. 

 

Those who love elegance usually go for modern furniture with sharp lines. Or they may often express their refined personality through classic furnishings such as old wooden bookshelves and coffee tables. Some people have no problem experimenting with different bold colors showing off their adventurous natures. 

 

No matter what personality type you are, every piece of furniture in your home provides a glimpse into what attracts you the most and your special way of styling it.

Meaningful Pieces and Additions

Some may say that the smallest details are what matter the most. Therefore, displaying your favorite decorative items in your home is probably the best way to express your personality. Usually, the accessories you decide to showcase in your home are a representation of your interests and hobbies. 

 

For example, if you love traveling, you will most likely put up different souvenirs you have bought when you traveled to your favorite destinations. Or if you are a music person, you might have your favorite musical instruments such as a guitar or a violin in your living room showing off your artistic personality. 

 

The best thing about accessorizing is that you don’t need to go to a fancy store. Instead, search for any hidden gems you have in your home and find a way to add them to your interior.
