To be honest, I am not very creative unlike most people that I know but every year – specifically, every Chinese New Year, we always tend to redecorate everything in our house – all based on Feng Shui and all that. Believe me, each and every time I had to redecorate my room, I always tend to have a hard time. I would spend hours and days just checking the blueprint of my room – finding the right colors that brings luck in each area of the room as it changes every year, studying everything I need to know for the incoming year.
PS. Now, you don’t need to believe in Feng Shui or anything or sort – but I just want to clear out that Feng Shui is not a suspicious belief like most people think as it’s all about energies and science at work and this has been proven as well. It’s also not a religious belief or anything. So please do refrain from talking about your own beliefs as this won’t be the topic of this blog post at all. It’s all about home decoration – so, let’s stick to that, shall we?
I do tend to search a lot of inspirations on the internet. I don’t know about you but finding an inspiration and really applying that to my room makes it so hard for me. I just can’t seem to do it the way I wanted to – because of the lack of materials thus, I just had to improvised on what I currently have.
So far – moving the furnitures from one place to another did make a big change in my room. I do love how my room looks right now than before. It’s much cleaner and the energy vibes feels good, too. It’s just that sometimes, I wish it could look much better like how I see home decorations on the internet. There are just some times when I feel I don’t just need to just check the home decoration itself but I need to be practical with what I do to my room, too – including the materials and textures that I used for home decors.
Right now, I am thinking of reading more about textures and design. So, I’m going to do some studying and reading on this new book that I found online: Oriental Rugs: An Illustrated Lexicon of Motifs, Materials, and Origin. I love rugs and I believe they add an atmosphere to the room. I have been hesitant to get one because I kept thinking of how it will suit my room, plus how should I be cleaning it and all that. My mom kept reminding me on how it’s not easy as well. So, hopefully getting this book and reading more about it will help me learn more about how to handle rugs – more about what texture and design is good to use as well. They have a lot of illustrations for inspiration, too – which is totally perfect.
Maybe I can show off my room next time when I feel that it’s already worth posting on my blog. To any home decoration expert out there reading this blog or to those who are passionate with their home designing, feel free to give me some tips and guidelines with interior and home decoration – preferably for the bedroom area.
I had troubles with finding a good bed cover – how the pillows should be – what bedside table works – what to put in those tables and all that. I like my room clean and yet have a romantic kind of feeling to it. What about you – what kind of bedroom do you have and if you ever want to change it – what kind of bedroom would you like it to be?
Do you also fancy rugs or carpets as much as I do?
