When it’s time to decorate your home, the possibilities are endless. Like an empty canvas, your home interior is ready for an explosion of artistic creativity.
There are no rules when it comes to transforming your house into a home that’s just right for you – except that you should choose to create a space that’s a reflection of who you are.
Feel a sense of serenity at home by creating a cocoon filled with things you love and find comfort in.

To help you transform your living space, we have some tips that help you create a cozy and inviting haven for yourself, your family, and guests.
Choose your color scheme
Before furnishing and decorating, it’s a good idea to decide which colors you want to showcase in your living space. Here are some thoughts to consider when choosing the perfect color(s) for you:
1. Do you want a uniform color-scheme throughout your home’s interior?
For this question, consider if you want all the rooms to match in terms of wall color and overall design. (Hint: Your house your rules!)
2. What color combinations are you naturally drawn toward and how do they make you feel?
Think through which colors you want to show off and how you want to showcase them. Do you want your house to feel breathable, bright, and open? Consider whites, creams, and lighter colored walls with lots of windows. Do you want to feel relaxed? Incorporate light blues, soft yellows, and muted greens. For an energetic aesthetic, think vibrant! Add highly saturated colors like sunshine yellow, dark pink, lime green, and royal purple. (There are so many options to choose from!)

Choose your furniture pairings
Do you find comfort in creating a monochromatic look in your home? Or do you want to break the mold by mix and matching your favorite styles?
Whichever you choose, design a home that’s a reflection of you (and your lifestyle!).
If you love a monochromatic look with furniture that matches, Badcock offers living room, dining room and bedroom collections to make your dream space a reality.
The Augusta II bedroom set will brighten your bedroom for an elegant feel.
However, you can also choose to shop individual pieces and match them yourself! Opt for fun, laid back, artistic, or quirky décor when you decide to mix and match different furniture pieces.
There is no right or wrong when choosing to mix and match your furniture! Try matching the Truman reclining sofa with the Channing accent chair for an artsy feel to your living room.

Incorporate wall décor
Wall art décor can be transformative. It can change the essence of a room and create a brand new vibe.
There are a lot of different ways to style your wall décor, and each method will bring out aspects of your personality. Here are some tips on how to style your wall décor:
• Choose a stand-alone piece
Although it sounds simple enough, this is an easy and effective method of livening up your living space. Striking wall art will elevate your home’s personality.
• Select multiple pieces
Create an art gallery and fill your wall with art. This is a great way to add visual interest to an otherwise muted room. Let your gallery serve as the focal point, and match the rest of your furniture and décor to your newly-created accent wall.
Warm up your home by adding rugs in areas where guests are more likely to visit, such as the living room and dining room.
Adding a rug in areas where there’s a lot of movement has various benefits:
• Protects the floor from wear and tear
• Warms up the space
• Adds texture and color to the room
The Marina II indoor/outdoor rug will add a little loving to your outdoor area.
Outdoor rugs also have similar uses, and they usually make the outdoor patio feel like an extension of the home rather than a separate area of the house.
Remember, you get to choose what you want your home to look like, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box to create the perfect place that’s just right for you.
