Interior inspiration: Decorating a big house
Moving house is always a challenge, especially if you’re upsizing from a smaller home.If the house you’re moving to is especially big - with larger spaces and more bedrooms - how should you tackle the task of decorating? If you’re unsure exactly where to start, here’s a plan of action especially for you.
Tackle your decorating project room by room
Create room divisions and embrace quirky layouts
Incorporate warmer colours
While warm colours are generally a no-no for small spaces, big houses often benefit from yellow, orange and red hues that bring a cosiness to the rooms.Warm lighting also helps to make big rooms feel more comfortable, so don’t shy away from more vibrant tones for the walls and soft furnishings. If you’re not a fan of in-your-face colours, you can incorporate a splash of bright hues with scatter cushions, curtains and ornaments.
Go two tone on your walls
Hang plenty of pictures on the walls
In a big house you’ll have plenty of wall space to cover, which is the perfect opportunity for displaying your favourite pictures and artwork.From art prints to wedding photos, make the most of the walls by hanging plenty of frames, or even creating your own feature display. Mismatch your frames for a vintage feel, or go ultra-modern with matching black or white frames.
