There are a lot of things that change when you get married. You have to move in with someone else, and that means figuring out a lot of things about someone else’s habits and patterns. You’ll probably avoid stepping on each other’s toes, which means you want to be careful. But you also want to try and create a space in your new home that is for the both of you. This is especially important when one of you is moving to the other’s place rather than getting a new place together. Here are some tips, thanks to LA Confidential Magazine, for decorating as newlyweds.
Agree on a look
Before you go crazy and start decorating, check with your partner and make sure they agree. It might really hurt your new relationship otherwise. Even if you think they don’t have an opinion on the subject, you may be wrong. Just make sure you agree on the look you are going for, and you should be fine.
Mixing styles is okay
Even if you have different styles, that is okay. You can mix them together. Even if one of you is very modern and the other very trendy, you can mix those together to create a look that speaks to your family rather than one or the other.
Compromise with past pieces
You won’t always get your way, and it’s okay to use pieces from your past. In fact, maybe you have to compromise about those pieces from your past. Just put them in the room and find a way to decorate around them. It might be a great centerpiece for the space.
Mirrors, vases, and frames
Even if you don’t like them, it is important to create a decorative feel by getting mirrors, vases, and frames set up. Just do it, and you’ll be happy you did. They certainly complete the look in most rooms.
By putting pillows and blankets in your outdoor space, you make it look more inviting. Maybe that’s a bad thing with some neighbors, but most people are happy to have a space they can call their own and that they also enjoy spending time in. You will also want to make sure the space is comfortable for you and friends to sit in. One way of doing this, according to LA Confidential Magazine, is by adding music. It livens up the space and makes everyone feel at home.
