The chandelier, the L-shaped sofa, the showcase that is filled with trophies and memories, bright lighting and a mixture of colors are the trademark interiors found in every Indian household. 15 years ago the idea for hiring an interior designer for your home interior was an option considered only by the elite. The rest of us happened to do the decor on our own. Now, interior designing has become a part and parcel of every household and we don’t hesitate to hire professionals. The trend nowadays is to be innovative. Innovation mixed with the plethora of subtle designs is loved by most people. But, with the number of amazing designs and ideas on the Internet, it is possible for you to take a bold step and come up with an interior plan by yourself. If you already had done your interior and looking to mix it up a little bit, here are 7 little changes that might make a big difference to your home decor
#1. Change the wall color
Enticing colors can be a great start in transforming your home completely. Dull and faded paint in your home could disturb the entire setup. Choosing to change them would amplify the entire look and make you feel home. The obstacle that people face most of the time is choosing the color. There are various factors that an interior designer takes into account when he chooses the wall color for a room. The natural light that comes into your home plays a huge part. More the natural light, lighter the color is, and vice versa. Also, the wall color should complement the entire furniture and home decor.
White could never go wrong! When in doubt, simply choose white. It could go with any color and also gives a pleasant look. But, if you are in doubt and want to experiment with darker shades such as red or green then it is wise that you get an expert opinion. A key factor to remember is that paint is easy to change. Just experiment till you achieve what you have in your mind.
#2. Use patterns
Patterns are in trend these days among many interior designers. When distributed evenly throughout the different interior pieces, the use of patterns could be refreshing. The most commonly used patterns in India are the geometric and the floral ones. You can see them in the carpets, curtains, cushions and the pillows. It all comes down to how well you blend these patterns to bring an organized look. If you like the way it looks, add one more pattern that complements the first one; color wise and pattern wise.
If you have a lighter color on all of the living room decors then you could throw in a bright color rug with heavy floral patterns. Do thorough research on how you could match different patterns and achieve a certain look. For example, you cannot mix extreme colors when you are using patterns in different places. You could take inspiration from Pinterest and come up with ideas, or if you expect perfection then get a professional opinion.
#3. Indoor gardens
Want to bring some life into your home? Literally? Set up an indoor garden with some fresh indoor plants. The green color could bring a sense of peace and also help purify the surrounding air. When living in a bustling city these indoor plants could just be the change you need. Also, they act as the perfect natural home decor.

Mirrors are a huge part of everyone’s lifestyle. Just adding an aesthetic mirror alone could enhance the entire look of the room. Add a mirror to the existing room and change the entire vibe.

Preferences vary from person to person. It is important to find out what suits you before making a decision. Include mood lighting to your bedroom and feel the evident change.
