When you are designing the decor for your home, the main thing that you are always going to try and achieve is a kind of uniqueness. In other words, you want to feel that your home is as idiosyncratic as possible, so that you can show off the quirkiness of your personality.  But this can sometimes be very difficult to achieve, which is why it’s so valuable when you manage to make it work.  In this post, I’m going to look at some of the best ways that you can hope to do this in your home.

Choose a few unique decorations

First of all, you will want to go out and try to find a handful of decorations which are either unusual or unique to you. It is a good idea to try and push the boat out a bit here, and think outside the box.  For instance, you could think about finding some decorative item which you have not seen in homes for a long time.  A complete history of cuckoo clocks will tell you that those are still in fashion, and that is true – and yet such an item would make a particularly unusual and interesting thing to have on your wall. Similarly, a grandfather clock would be something that people will have to look twice at, and will add to the general feeling of the home being unique – if a little strange.

Represent your hobbies

Everyone has their own unique set of hobbies in life, and these are a great opportunity for you to decorate your home in a unique quirky manner.  All you need to do is simply think about the hobbies you have, and find some way to represent them in your home.  Surrounding yourself with reminders of your hobbies will make for a much more interesting home indeed, and will mean that it is the kind of place that only you could live in.  That is what we are going for here: somewhere that only you could live and which represents you as fully and as effectively as is possible to do with decor.

Get bold with colour

Colour is always a big one that you need to think about when it comes to decorating your home.  It is of special importance if you are hoping to create a unique-looking home. You need to think about what kinds of colour are less often used, and then work out how you can use them in your own home in a way which really works. If you can get bold with your colour choices, you will find that you are going to end up with a space which nobody else could really have created in quite the same way. That is what we are going for, and it is an easy thing to achieve if you get a little creative.  Here’s a little look at our living room where we have a white background and bold colourful furniture.
