Your home is your castle and it is great to be able to decorate it in just the way you like. Each and every room can have a character all of its own, whether it's the childrens' room or the dining room. You want each room to exude the character it is designed for and yet also have the individual touch. This can be quite tricky when you are deluged by so much on the market and it can seem overwhelming. This can definitely be the case when it is your first home and you are new to homewares.
In fact, even if you have moved home for the umpteenth time, it can still be a time to begin afresh and delight yourself with a new ambience and colour scheme. Often it is the house or apartment itself that will dictate the flavour you choose for your room and what particular homewares you choose as added d?�cor.
That is not to say that an Edwardian or Georgian home or 30's built residence cannot have a completely modern makeover. Indeed this is more the case nowadays as house dwellers begin to upgrade and modernize, keeping the existing shell as a lovely feature. There is something gloriously romantic and artistic about an Edwardian home that exudes all the class and subtlety of that era and yet has managed to keep pace with the times and is full of modern amenities and charm. The aesthetic of an original fireplace, complete with original tiling and hearth, sitting side by side with up to the minute technology and features can be very pleasing to the eye.
The children's room could have table lamps in the shape of favourite characters such as a white bunny, an elephant or a toadstool, while the bathroom could have an ultra modern Birillo white designer tissue box and liquid soap dispenser, as elegant accessories. Or how about Caithness glass, depicting beach huts in a seascape sand-cast? The list of ideas when you are considering extra homewares to accessorise your home is wide and wonderful. It is a good idea to go through each room in turn and get a complete look in the colour scheme of your choice rather than try to add bits to each room. You will be amazed at what you can do to add a bit of style and ambience to a room just by the addition of a few simple bits and pieces.
