Stylish Interior Design ideas to Inspire Your Creative Side

We’re heavily influenced by our surroundings. When you’re a creative, it would be understandable if you find your inspiration sucked out after being stuck in your bedroom all day. That’s why we take walks in the park, we go look at art in museums, or browse shelves in bookstores just for the heck of it.

But what if we can turn our bedrooms into parks, museums, and bookstores? Our bedrooms – our houses, in general – are basically blank canvasses that we can paint on to make them unique and inspiring.

Here are some ways that you can do that:

Be creative with colors

Don’t be afraid of using colors, but be wary of how they mix. Find out what color would go great with your bed, for example, and keep that in mind the next time you buy new sheets. Buy frames that would complement the mint green of your living room walls. Decorate your home with an array of colors so that your every waking moment in it is a moment of harmonious beauty.

Keep things comfy

While you might get tempted buying that artsy and abstract couch you saw online, It’s best that you make sure that it’s comfy first. While it may be nice to look at, furniture that gives you back aches might become an eyesore over time.

Rearrange your workspace constantly

If you’re a writer like I am, you probably sit at the same desk for hours on end. Aside from the screen of your laptop, the top of your desk is where you end up staring at the most. To keep things interesting, always change the stuff that you have there.

Place the books that you’re reading at the moment or the paintings, sculptures, or photos of loved ones that have been giving you inspiration and joy at the moment. Feel free to change them up anytime you feel like it. That way, it feels like a different desk every time you sit down to get to work.

Mismatch to your heart’s desire

There are no rules when it comes to creativity, so try not to make your home look too formal. Use different chairs for your dining table, pair differently shaped knives with differently shaped forks, and so on. This will not only make for a quirky feature, but it will also exercise your mind to finding unlikely pairs that work.

Travel the world

Does a certain place give you creative inspiration like no other place can? Is there somewhere that you call your home away from home? While nothing beats actually being in that certain place, it’s also possible to bring that place to where you live.

Let’s say you’ve fallen in love with the minimalism of Japan. Study the way the Japanese design their living spaces and apply that to your own. That way, you’ll be traveling the world without even having to change from your boxers.

Finally, don’t be afraid to experiment

After all is said and done, know that you don’t have to settle for one look right away. You can experiment as much as you can until you find the look that best suits your style. Also, keep in mind that you also change and grow as years go by. You won’t allow your creativity to grow if your bedroom is the same as it was ten years ago.
