How to Decorate Walls as a Minimalist

A minimalist home doesn't mean a boring home. Use these tips to decorate walls in your home while keeping things minimalist and simple. How to Decorate Walls as a Minimalist ~ Tipsaholic.com #minimalism #decorating

Minimalism doesn’t mean a space has to remain empty. Dial back the quantity and increase the quality when it comes to the artwork, sculpture, shelving, paint, and other wall décor you use in your home. Apply a few of these tips to design something great and start to decorate walls in your minimalist home with less fuss!

Focus on color

Color is an obvious go-to when you want to add to a space without adding to your possessions. Paint a wall in a bold color if you want to make it the main attraction in a room, or use a softer color if you plan to add art. Art is a great way to add color and it can really tie a room together when used to compare colors for other elements such as furniture and rugs.

Focus on shape

A space with little personality can be given a quick punch by playing with shapes on the wall. Shelving built in fun shapes can be functional and decorative at the same time, which is a bonus for minimalists. Try these DIY “honeycomb” shelves if you’ve got a way with tools. Sculpture and art are also great ways to add shapes to a wall. For quality art at lower prices, search sites like Etsy for up-an-coming artists.

Focus on texture

A textured wall can be the focal point of a room and often needs little else. Wood, brick, stone, and board and batten or other wall add-ons can all bring a touch of décor without adding long-term maintenance like that required by furniture and knick-knacks. If a full wall of texture seems a bit overwhelming, another option is to use textured wall hangings or try a fun wall décor project like this macramé creation.

Focus on size

“Go big or go home” is a phrase worth remembering when it comes to minimalist wall design. If you’ve got a lot of space, one of the easiest ways to fill it is with a something big, whether it’s art, a mirror, shelving, or hey, even a television. If a single piece doesn’t appeal to you, try choosing a collection of smaller items, but keep the collection small to stay in line with minimalism.

Focus on contrast

Contrasting colors, textures, and shapes draw the eye in with minimal effort. A large mirror against a wall, a bright painting on neutral colors, or a wall-hanging with bold patterns on a plain background are all simple ways to add decorative contrast to your walls.

Focus on meaning

Rather than decorating your walls with something new, take a look into some of the boxes you may have containing family heirlooms and photographs. Consider enlarging and framing photos, hanging homemade quilts, or placing other sentimental items on simple shelves. Limit yourself to a few of your most meaningful items but let your history and personality show. In the end, these are the things that make any house a home.

10 Gorgeous Living Rooms That Will Convince You to Get a Colorful Sofa
Looking for a new sofa for your living room? Consider getting a colorful sofa instead of a safe, neutral one! A bold sofa in your favorite color injects a lot of personality and charm in a room and makes it easier to decorate the rest of the room, since you already have the wow factor. Here are 10 beautiful examples of how a sofa in a vivid color can truly make a room.

1. This relaxed living room by Lauren Liess wouldn’t be the same without the striking mustard yellow sofa.

The room is already special, with its built-in shelves, sconces, and window seat, but the bright sofa makes it a truly beautiful space. The yellow sofa is repeated in the pillows on the window seat, tying the two areas together.

2. The eggplant purple sectional gives this living room, designed by Hillary Thomas, a cool bohemian feel.

Imagine the room with a white sectional. It would be pretty, but very girly and kinda one-dimensonial. The dark eggplant sofa grounds the room while playing well with the other colors: pink, cream, and white.

3. Katherine Vos’ living room is elegant and stunning, thanks to the bold blue sofa.

The blue color is repeated in the art, but the rest of the room is decked out simply in white, black, and gold. This allows the blue sofa to shine without being overwhelming.

4. This living room by Ilaria Chiaratti wouldn’t be as alluring without the pastel blue sofa.

Imagine the room with a gray sofa. There would be nothing exciting or special about the room. The soft blue color of the sofa looks great with the neutral pieces in the room and brings out the little pops of color around the room, like in the ottomans, the accessories on the shelving, and the pillow on the chair.

5. The blue sectional sofa in the basement designed by Jamie Meares looks beautiful against the backdrop of dark gray walls.

A room painted in a dark color can look cozy and welcoming, but it can also get dark and depressing. This basement is definitely not depressing in any way, thanks to the gorgeous blue sectional that commands the space.

6. The emerald sofa, custom-made by designer Nicole Cohen, is the star of this room that’s mostly black and white (and gold).

If you love a room that’s mostly filled with neutral furniture and accessories, with a little gold and lucite sprinkled here and there, you absolutely need to have a sofa in a saturated color. The result is always a beautiful room.

7. A small room, like this tiny living room, can handle a bold sofa.

As long as your tiny room is mostly neutral, a brightly colored sofa looks great in a small space. Since it’s so bold, it takes up space visually so you can get away with only a few furniture pieces, which is a good thing for small spaces.

8. The hot pink sofa in Harriet Anstruther’s home makes a statement about the person living there.

If you have a signature color, go ahead and get a sofa in that color to give your room a big dose of personality! Even if your signature color is pink. Just look at the room, it totally works.

9. The teal accents in this room compliment the orange sofa perfectly.

It just goes to prove that a sofa in any color can be beautiful, as long as the room is decorated correctly. Neutral pieces always work, as you’ve seen in previous examples here, but a complimentary color that is repeated around the room is another smart way to let a colorful sofa take center stage.

10. A sofa in a fun color is the perfect addition to a room that is filled with youthful exuberance, like this room by Will Taylor.

Some rooms are just all about the fun, like playrooms, family rooms, and game rooms. Fill these rooms with lots of color and pattern, starting with a colorful sofa!

Here are 25 awesome ideas to create the perfect shared bedroom! 25 Stellar Shared Bedrooms for Kids - Tipsaholic, #DIY, #bedroom, #design, #sharedroom, #kidsColor Blocked Space  – Define separate areas in a shared bedroom by decorating in two different but complimentary colors.  Place a bookshelf or dresser for storage and division.  Start with base colors for each side (in this case, yellow and turquoise) and add pops of the other colors throughout the whole space to make the look cohesive.  It’s simple and unique with lots of individual personality.

Here are 25 awesome ideas to create the perfect shared bedroom! 25 Stellar Shared Bedrooms for Kids - Tipsaholic, #DIY, #bedroom, #design, #sharedroom, #kidsExtra Long Bed  – This room features an extra long platform that spans the length of the room.  It’s long enough to fit two twin mattresses on it with some room between.  This is a great solution for sleeping arrangements in a shared space, especially if it’s a narrow room and could benefit by having all the furniture against one wall.  Notice the storage drawers below the bed and the storage shelves above – in coordinated colors that bring a cohesive, put-together feeling to the space.  Though the bed butts up to the closet along the perpendicular wall, the doors slide apart, making it completely usable still.

Here are 25 awesome ideas to create the perfect shared bedroom! 25 Stellar Shared Bedrooms for Kids - Tipsaholic, #DIY, #bedroom, #design, #sharedroom, #kidsIndustrial Space for 3  –   The space beneath the loft bed in this room was just large enough for a king sized mattress, placed perpendicular to the twin above so it juts into the room.  With three young boys in this space, it’s the perfect solution as it eliminates headboards, footboards, and bed frames that take up valuable real estate.  The steel frame of the loft was the perfect inspiration for the industrial decor and storage – a chest with bins for toys and two metal racks, one with metal toolboxes for small treasures and collections and one with galvanized buckets for stuffed animals.  The kids have enough storage and space to sleep and play – even with three in one room!

Here are 25 awesome ideas to create the perfect shared bedroom! 25 Stellar Shared Bedrooms for Kids - Tipsaholic, #DIY, #bedroom, #design, #sharedroom, #kidsAbove Bed Shelving  –  At first glance, this room seems as if it’s not big enough for one child and their accompanying “stuff,” let alone two.  When one of them is a girl and one a boy, making this tiny space work for both seems an insurmountable challenge.  By placing the beds next to each other, but separated by a chest of drawers, there’s a clear division of space.  But what makes this room really work well is the above bed storage – a wall of shelves above each bed for storing special treasures and toys.  Making use of the architecture already present in the space, the beds and shelves look like expensive built-ins.

Here are 25 awesome ideas to create the perfect shared bedroom! 25 Stellar Shared Bedrooms for Kids - Tipsaholic, #DIY, #bedroom, #design, #sharedroom, #kidsBuilt-Ins On Both Ends  –  A narrow room like this is best utilized by placing the furniture together against one long wall.  This can be challenging when trying to add everything necessary – like dressers and shelves along with two beds.  This room does it with built-ins – on both sides of the room.  One side is built-in bunk beds with closed storage/cabinets on both ends, and open shelving filling in the remaining space along the wall.  The other wall is a combination of open and closed shelving, so there’s no need for dressers or bookshelves.  Everything has a spot.

 

No matter the age or gender, having kids share a bedroom can be challenging. Here are 25 awesome ideas to create the perfect shared bedroom! 25 Stellar Shared Bedrooms for Kids - Tipsaholic, #DIY, #bedroom, #design, #sharedroom, #kidsPrivacy Partition  –  Perhaps your kids would appreciate a bit more privacy to their separate areas.  You can accomplish this in nearly any sized bedroom by utilizing some kind of room divider.  The best room divider for a kids’ bedroom will incorporate plenty of storage, as does this large shelf with cubbies.  Putting pegboard on one side of the shelf allows for hanging storage and even more separation.

Here are 25 awesome ideas to create the perfect shared bedroom! 25 Stellar Shared Bedrooms for Kids - Tipsaholic, #DIY, #bedroom, #design, #sharedroom, #kids5 Kids, 1 Room  – You’ll never believe it, but there are 5 boys in this room.  5 of them!  And it works.  The furniture is kept to a minimum – two small bookshelves, two sets of bunk beds and one toddler bed.  No dressers.  No desks.  With the bunk beds pushed into the corner in an “L”, it gives the look (and space-saving) of built-in bunks.  There are shelves and bins in the closets and under beds for clothing, so no dressers are needed.  A clever solution to keep from feeling too stuffed, even with a herd of boys!

 

No matter the age or gender, having kids share a bedroom can be challenging. Here are 25 awesome ideas to create the perfect shared bedroom! 25 Stellar Shared Bedrooms for Kids - Tipsaholic, #DIY, #bedroom, #design, #sharedroom, #kidsBuilt-In Bunks  –  This is an amazing space for 5 girls.  One wall was changed into built-in bunk beds – with a set of stairs in between.  Each bed is outfitted with a curtain to pull for privacy, a shelf for books and a lamp.  It’s basically like sleeping in a fort, every night.  Below the bunks are oversized drawers for toy storage.  There’s a nook for a dresser built-in across from the beds (which is actually three Ikea dressers put together, but you’d never know it) and on one short wall, they created a closet by hanging curtains along a track in the ceiling.  It’s comfy, it’s bright and cheery and, surprisingly, not at all cramped.

 

Also, check out this sunny, gender neutral shared room with lots of details and tips.

How To Use Industrial Interior Design In Your Home

Industrial interior design is on trend for all types of homes. Here are some tips for getting this style right in your space. How To Use Industrial Interior Design At Home - Tipsaholic.com, #design, #industrialdesign, #industrial, #DIY, #decor, #homedecor


industrial design header
 

The industrial interior design trend took homes by storm in 2014, and it’s still going strong today.  With a strong interest in celebrating the building materials that are often concealed – like ductworks, pipelines and interior brick – this style is characterized by a raw, unfinished look.  It’s a look that’s increasingly popular among the DIY crowd especially, due to the easily accessible and economical materials involved. Long used in loft spaces and warehouse style dwellings, where the construction naturally lends itself to an industrial look, it’s a trend that can be easily translated to nearly any space in a classy, stylish way.  Here are some tips and inspiration for incorporating industrial interior design into your home.

 

1. Fake it.  Okay.  So you don’t have any exposed ducts or brick in your suburban home.  While adding unnecessary HVAC may not be advisable, exposed brick?  That you can do.  Brick panels can be purchased inexpensively online or at your favorite home improvement store, and it’s fairly easy to paint them to look aged and worn.  Try it out on a small piece of plywood before applying it to your walls to practice the process and stick to one small accent wall or an area under cabinets or above a ledge so as not to overwhelm the room.

 

2. Make it.  Don’t feel confined to what you see in high-end stores or on department store shelves.  There are a lot of industrial-styled pieces you can DIY for a fraction of the cost.  Not only that, but you can customize them to your personal needs as well.  You could make a coffee table with metal strips, wooden fence pickets and castors or a desk from reclaimed wood and pipes.  Or create always needed storage with a unique shelving unit.  Even lighting can be handmade or up cycled, like this faux metal sconce.  Not confident in your abilities?  Start small with a hanging pipe mini planter or floating shelf.

 

3. Go old school.  Industrial design lends itself perfectly to vintage elements.  Find utilitarian objects and accessories to round out your design.  Unique items that have a functional purpose – such as these scale weights – can be displayed for added interest.  You may not naturally gravitate toward antique castors, rusty fans, lockers with a high patina or wire baskets as high style, but for industrial design they’re a perfect fit.  Scour flea markets, thrift stores, antique markets and online venues to find furniture pieces – even vintage stools or light fixtures – and more to add the finishing touches.

 

4. Mix and match it.  Use a variety of all materials in a fun, eclectic way that suits your needs and style.  Woods of all types – grains, stains and raw – along with metals that look vintage or weathered (like brass, steel, and brushed nickel) are main components of industrial design.  Leather and plastics are also commonly used.  Mix and match pairings of complementary items, such as a classic wood dining table with steel chairs, or a soft leather couch with plastic and metal side chairs.  Or combine elements into one piece – with a wood and metal table for instance.  Don’t stick to just one type of metal or one wood stain throughout – a mixed approach will give your space the industrial vibe you want.

 

5. Stay neutral.  This style of design is characterized by neutrals – and you can mix them all within one space as well.  Stick with all hues and shades of browns, grays, whites and black.  For interest, add one or two brighter colors in small pops around the room – with simple throw pillows or accessories.  Artwork can also bring in some color.  Stick with clean lines and distinctive but simple items.  Industrial design thrives on function that doubles as form – a no fuss, clean approach decorating.

 

6. Don’t overdo it.  Even in the most mod and chic loft in Brooklyn you’ll find comfortable furnishings – like cushy couches, soft armchairs or even a classic, contemporary side table or two.  Transforming your living room into a warehouse with metal pipes on everything, stark wooden surfaces everywhere, and faded brick all over the walls could be too much for your space.  It’s easy to take any design overboard, so try adding in industrial touches a bit at a time until you achieve the desired look.

 

7. Soften up a bit.  It’s true that industrial design is about simplicity, function and a utilitarian feel, but this is also your home.  Soften the look a bit with a trendy rug or a soft and luxurious throw.  Add lightweight, neutral curtains that won’t cover the windows.  Keeping the space light and airy is key to avoiding a dingy, “abandoned building” feeling, so don’t block any natural light and don’t distract from the rest of the room with crazy patterns.  Using textiles in a controlled, neutral manner will add texture, interest and softness to what could be an otherwise stark space.

Is your coat closet small and cluttered? Turn your messy coat closet into an organized space with the help of these 11 coat closet ideas! 11 Ways to Upgrade Your Coat Closet via @tipsaholic #coatcloset #organize #closet #closets #diy


11 Ways to Upgrade Your Coat Closet
Is your coat closet small and cluttered? Are you forever picking up coats from the floor and searching through a pile of shoes to find a pair? Turn your messy coat closet into an organized space with the help of these 11 coat closet ideas!

1. Create cubbies with flipped brackets and shelves.

Is your coat closet small and cluttered? Turn your messy coat closet into an organized space with the help of these 11 coat closet ideas! 11 Ways to Upgrade Your Coat Closet via @tipsaholic #coatcloset #organize #closet #closets #diy
Putting cubbies in your locker can help organize small clothing items, such as mittens and hats. You can DIY your own cubbies by flipping brackets upside down and attaching shelves at the bottom. This is perfect if you already have brackets laying around!

 

2. Attach plastic file boxes to the wall.

Is your coat closet small and cluttered? Turn your messy coat closet into an organized space with the help of these 11 coat closet ideas! 11 Ways to Upgrade Your Coat Closet via @tipsaholic #coatcloset #organize #closet #closets #diy
Another way to hold smaller items is to grab a few plastic file boxes and drill them into one of the walls in your coat closet. They are the perfect size to hold shopping bags, both paper and reusable!

 

3. Use wire baskets to hold cold, wet items.

Mittens, hats, and scarves that get snow on them can become wet. Put them in hanging wire baskets to let them dry out faster.

 

4. Add narrow and long wire baskets to the door to hold sandals and flats.

If you love to wear sandals and flats, attach narrow wire baskets to the bottom of your coat closet door and store your shoes there. These baskets can hold a lot of sandals and flats and your coat closet floor will be much less cluttered.

 

5. Install extra shelves above your coat closet’s existing shelf.

Is your coat closet small and cluttered? Turn your messy coat closet into an organized space with the help of these 11 coat closet ideas! 11 Ways to Upgrade Your Coat Closet via @tipsaholic #coatcloset #organize #closet #closets #diy

Most coat closets have one shelf and a whole lot of wasted vertical space above it. Make good use of the space and add an extra shelf or two.

 

6. Build a shoe shelf.

Is your coat closet small and cluttered? Turn your messy coat closet into an organized space with the help of these 11 coat closet ideas! 11 Ways to Upgrade Your Coat Closet via @tipsaholic #coatcloset #organize #closet #closets #diy
Add another shelf in the lower part of your closet to hold your shoes. One shelf or two will give you and your family a place to put their shoes instead of just throwing them on the floor. And you’ll be able to see every pair so you can easily grab what you need.

 

7. Put a shelving unit in your coat closet.

Is your coat closet small and cluttered? Turn your messy coat closet into an organized space with the help of these 11 coat closet ideas! 11 Ways to Upgrade Your Coat Closet via @tipsaholic #coatcloset #organize #closet #closets #diy
A simple shelving unit, such as the discounted Expedit or the Kallax from IKEA, that can fit inside your coat closet would be an organizational powerhouse that can hold baskets filled with shoes, gloves, scarves, purses, hats, and more. Take down your existing rod and get two smaller ones to attach to the shelving unit. This would give your kids a place where they can hang up their own coats themselves.

A note: the Kallax has only four sections, so an Expedit really would work better. Try searching for one through your city’s Craiglist ads.

 

8. Add hooks to the coat closet door.

Putting hooks on the inside of your coat closet door will give you a place to hang up your purses, hats, and scarves. This would be a great solution if you like to switch between purses and bags. Use Command hooks if you have a hollow door.

9. Divide your coat closet into zones.

If you have a smaller home, dividing your coat closet into zones with MDF panels would help you gain space for other things besides coats and shoes, such as a basket filled with balls and sporting equipment and a mail center.

 

10. Turn your coat closet into a mini mudroom.

Have you always dreamed of having a mudroom instead of a coat closet? You can turn your coat closet into a mini mudroom by removing the rod and shelf and adding hooks on the wall. Add shoe shelves to the bottom. No more coat hangers that tangle up!

The 5 Steps of Simplified Home Decorating

Spend more time doing the things you love and less time maintaining your decor with these 5 steps to simplified home decorating. The 5 Steps of Simplified Home Decorating via @tipsaholic #home #decor #homedecor #interiordesign #simplify

simplified home decorating

 

If you’re a believer in the principal of “less is more,” you may have already looked into making lifestyle changes that will leave more time for the things in life you really value. But have you considered making changes to your home décor? Test the waters of a simpler style by using these minimalist home decorating basics to pare down the unnecessary in your house and maximize your free time.

 

1. Define the purpose

In a simplified home, every room and space has a defined purpose. If your bathroom is housing your pile of laundry or your living room has become a toy bin, it’s time to make a change. Decide what each room’s function will be. Within the room, decide what spaces and surfaces will house which items. If you’ve allowed your bedside table to become a desk with discarded mail and pens, clear the surface and start fresh. Give each item a specific place in the house.

 

2. Minimize clutter

The second thing that needs to be taken care of when simplifying your décor is cutting back on clutter so that there are fewer things to find “homes” for in a room. The less you own, the less you’ll need in the way of storage baskets, bins, and shelves. Keep the things that will add the most to your theme or style. Keep things that can be used throughout the year so that you don’t need to worry about swapping them with the seasons. Keep things that serve a purpose.

 

3. Minimize furniture

Do you really need two end tables plus a coffee table? Two bookshelves? Now that you’ve cut back on possessions, you probably don’t need as many surfaces and places to store them. Keep what is functional and adds to the style you are trying to convey and consider getting rid of the rest.

 

4. Make a statement

Just because you’re purging the extra stuff doesn’t mean your home has to be empty and boring. Rather than having many smaller items that take lots of time to clean and swap when seasons change, use a few larger ones to make your style statement. Bright colors, interesting pieces of furniture, rich textures, and large pieces of art are foundational in a simplistic style.

 

5. Don’t be afraid of space

Once you’ve cleared your home of the unnecessary, you may find it feels a little bare. Don’t let it scare you! Keep the space. You have more room now! More room to breathe, to move, to invite friends over. And you’ll have more time too, because you’ve already removed the things that needed constant organizing, dusting, and cleaning out. Fill this new space in your home and your schedule with fun, family, friends, and living a life you love.
