Understanding what is Home Decor – what you need to know.

Home decor is a topic few people really understand. They assume it’s about how the stuff in your house looks, but that isn’t remotely true. If someone told you “Well I think your home looks great!” yet all they did was rearrange the furniture and throw a couple of weird pillows on it – would you agree? No, of course not. Home decor is about what the place as a whole feels like to be in. It’s an experience, not just an arrangement of objects. To do that thing right takes thoughtfulness, consideration and creativity – qualities most people who call themselves ‘decorators’ don’t have at all.

That’s why I’m writing this guide: so one day you can make a house that actually feels like a real home. I’m going to teach you how to do it step by step, so all your choices are conscious ones. You’ll learn what really matters in decorating and why, while avoiding common beginner mistakes. And for those of you who already have some experience with the topic at hand – I hope this guide will give you insights on why things work or don’t work in your own home.

So settle down with a beverage while I take you on an enchanted journey into the depths of decoration.

Here are steps to understand home décor:


At their core, all rooms are shaped by three things: furniture, lighting, and color. These are the building blocks of every living space, and understanding them is the first step in becoming a good decorator.


The structure of your home often changes drastically depending on what furniture you put in Home Decor. For example, high-backed chairs create open space underneath, which allows for more freedom in arranging other things. On the other hand, few people would want to use low tables with tall stools because it makes little sense structurally (you’d be constantly looking down at any table surface). In short, furniture sets up a framework upon which every other aspect of the room must rest – so make sure you build from that right from the start!


On top of those two factors, there’s also lighting to consider – namely natural light during the day. This doesn’t mean ‘window size’ lighting, by the way – it means how much light can reach a particular area naturally. That’s why living rooms typically have many windows – because it allows for plenty of natural light to stream in during the day. If you put a desk under a window without proper lighting, for example, it will be hard to see what you’re doing at all hours. Equally important is artificial lighting, which has been shown to help create positive social interactions as well as keep people from driving down their blood pressure. It also makes everything look better


Finally we have color. Now I know that sometimes gets left out as just fluff or decoration… but that couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, color is responsible for 95% of human emotions – which makes it incredibly influential to one’s psychology. You’ve heard the saying ‘red means danger’? That’s because red stimulates the brain, causing blood pressure and heart rate to rise over time. If you have a room painted all in red, eventually people will start getting agitated. And if they stay too long without any windows or fresh air… well let’s just say that turns into a bad scene real fast.


Now that you know what decorating is really about, let’s move on to some easy rules to help guide your decisions as you go along! These are three simple things I always keep front-of-mind when I’m designing a room – and you should too. They will help you understand why certain styles exist, what they look good with, and how to make your home feel like a true reflection of yourself.


Decorating doesn’t have to be hard or expensive! You just need a little education and some simple rules to follow. Follow the three I’ve laid out in this article, and you’ll always end up with something amazing at the end of the day.

The Golden Rule: Buy only furniture that makes sense structurally

This one is an old classic among interior designers… but it’s worth repeating nonetheless. The problem most people run into when decorating their home is forgetting about the room they’re filling it with. Instead, they try buying ‘furniture’ without paying attention to how it relates to other pieces within the larger space.
