It is important for every person to know exactly what they want in their own house because it will reflect the type of personality of that particular person. If you happen to be the type of a person that loves anything having to do with fashion and always wants what is considered to be ‘in’, then you might possibly purchase furniture, lamps, chairs, wallpaper, sculptures or even pillows that are current and up to date. This will show a person that enters your own home for the first time, that you are modern and you are drawn to things that are up to date. One must consider though when buying items that are currently in fashion that most fashions will eventually come and go. If a certain item in your own home is no longer in style, you might have to replace it and it could be costly in the future.
The interior decoration of a home can be based on anything from a person’s favorite color to their preferred hobbies or possibly to even what is their own occupation. Females might be drawn to feminine items or even colors while males might possibly be attracted to more masculine things. For example, I know a person who currently has a career as a boxer. He has just finished building his large home and the design of his own living room is in the shape of a boxing glove. If you entered his home for the first time, you might think he was into sports or that he was possibly a boxer himself.
You might be a person or know somebody who has a love of films. If you do, then the interior decoration of your own home might reflect this. Maybe you enjoy displaying movie posters or even lobby cards. You could have them framed for all your friends and family to see and admire. You might collect toy figures from certain films that you enjoyed and have them in a display case. You could have film memorabilia books on your coffee table for people to read. As you can see, the interior decoration of a home can tell us a lot about the person or people who live there.
If we consult an interior designer for the first time, he or she will ask us our certain likes and dislikes. These will mirror our own personality. They will incorporate everything we want into our home for us to enjoy for years on end.
