HOW TO STYLE IN A SEC!! Its easy forward to transform your home if you have an abundance of money, but HEY the good news is – ITS NOT ABOUT MONEY, it all comes down to creativity, do what you feel like, think out of the box and keep in mind that everything is possible – you just need to get the right materials! That being said, the most important is that you DARE – forget all about DONT´s just do it
1. CLEAN UP
First thing to do is clean up! Get rid of all the stuff that you do not want, use or like anymore. Or even better SELL it! I come from a FLEE-family, we sell everything! And the funny thing is that people actually buy everything – and the more you sell the more money you have for your transformation. Who, knows you might find something yourself at the flee-market that will fit perfectly into your style!
As said before; Walls are a the frame of the interior playground – there is no scene without a frame! Depending on your style and budget must haves are paint, wallpaper paste, wallpaper/posters/photos. Its no secret that wallpaper can be quite pricy, same goes for paint if you want a durable quality. If your budget aint into that make your own personal wall – everything goes! The only thing you need to bare in mind is that you are going to look at and live with it (of cause you can change it whenever you like)! Go for stuff that you´d love to look at, I plastered my hall, all four walls with travelphotos. Print them on a good quality paper, maybe with a touch of patina and plaster them directly to the wall. Or, go for your favorite posters – place them close together or overlapping – let them cover the whole area or wall – white bits ruin the look. Another option is to frame the poster or photos with paint! If you aint into too much color, patterns or craziness collect all your photoframes and place them close together – make a decoration on the wall. I made a family tree in the bathroom by painting a huge tree with gold paint and places photos in small vintage frames on all the branches – A big DO is keeping them together – photos scattered around the walls looks messy and incomplete!
3. SPRAY PAINT
The best invention ever! Spraypaint can transform even the ugliest piece of furniture or interior accessory into whatever color you like. FIRST thing to do is go outside!! I´ve made this mistake several times because I get to eager to finish my projects, but spraypaint reaches everything and it doesn’t come off! For furnitures you should go for car-spraypaint it lasts forever and gives a cool shiny look. If you do furnitures dont forget to remove handles etc. at least if you dont want them to be the same color.
4. SHELF LINER
Again, shelf liner is the best invention if you want your project to be re-changeable! And if you want a material that is durable to a wet cloth. Shelf liners can be cut into any kind of art piece, so let out your creativity! Use it for shelves, tiles, tables.. you name it!
When it comes to coziness its all about light! Think about candles, cozy right? So, go for bunch of candles AND get rid of light bulbs with too many watts – replace them with incandescent bulb with less watt than 60 and let the coziness come to you!
