Guest Post: Injecting Some Personality and Color into Home

Having just recently redecorated my own bedroom, I know what a stressful and time consuming task it can be. It is not until you begin the process that you realize just how much work there is to be done, and this is why you should always make a plan before making a mess of everything. Your bedroom needs to be a reflection of your own personality, and as well as this it needs to be a space in which you can relax and unwind in, so you need to keep this in mind when you are thinking about the d├ęcor and furniture that you will have in this space.
I find that the best place to begin is the wallpaper, as this is probably the most noticeable aspect and something that covers the most area in the room. This is the foundation of your bedroom, and all the other elements, like the flooring and furniture, will need to be in tune with the style and color that you pick. So what style wallpaper should you pick? This is a tough question and will come down to your own personality and taste, but I would advice against going with one plain, boring color. This is because this is something that everyone does, and it does not inject any sense of personality or fun into the room, so instead you should consider something a bit bolder.

Picking Out Unique and Colorful Designs

By doing your wallpaper shopping at a specialist retailer, like WallpaperSales, you will find an enormous range of bold and colorful wallpapers which are sure to grab your attention. I personally like Arthouse Wallpaper, as you can find some very bold and confident designs which will not overpower the room, which is something that you need to think about when picking out your wallpaper. Arthouse wallpaper uses a variety of vibrant colors and prints which can set the tone for the rest of the room, and you could even find furniture in the same style to really complement the wallpaper too.

Once you have picked out your own wallpaper it will suddenly make the task of decorating much easier, and this is because you will have a theme and style to work around. The next stages will involve the flooring, furnishing the room (be careful not to over do it), and then a few final touches like hanging posters/photos and anything else to add some personality.
