How To Find Your Home Decor Aesthetic

Creating a home you adore is more than finding the right location. The interior decor of your space reflects your personality and your goals more than you might think!

While we firmly believe that home is where the heart is, we also know that unnecessary clutter and disjointed decor can encourage chaos rather than comfort in our most treasured spaces. The first step of any home improvement is to declutter your existing collection of items and decor, choose which items deserve a spot in your updated space, and then immediately get rid of the excess stuff. 

Once you’ve cleaned out your existing collection, create an attainable mood board of your ideas, colors, decor pieces, and furniture that will best reflect your goals for that space. Once you decide on your home aesthetic, you can begin shopping and then staging your home! 

Finding an aesthetic that inspires your best self isn’t as difficult as it may sound! We’ve compiled a list of popular home decor styles that are easily integrated into your home – big or small. If you’re looking for more ideas, check out this article on last year’s major trends.

The eclectic grandpa aesthetic has been trending on TikTok for a while, and the home decor inspo is a perfect combination of colors, patterns, and shapes that encourage the ultimate cozy living space. While you may not want to camp out on another trending aesthetic, this term is quite helpful in defining your search and describing your design goals before you revamp your space! 

The eclectic grandpa aesthetic is essentially a muted version of your grandparents’ house, with an emphasis on bookshelves, dark wood, and vintage items. In a sense, the aesthetic is organized clutter with a muted color scheme and lots of greenery. To accomplish this decor look, you’ll need a variety of books (perfect items to thrift) as well as a central coffee table in your living room for eclectic items.

Coastal Classic

If you’re holding on to the remnants of the coastal grandmother aesthetic, this coastal classic home decor aesthetic is an elevated way to design your space. Light blue will be the primary color focus of your decor, along with bright shades of white and a classic wood finish. 

To avoid the instantly outdated components of this aesthetic, stay away from obvious artwork and decor elements that focus on ocean creatures. Shells, starfish, and boat shapes can be used in a classic way, but shouldn’t be the defining feature of your coastal classic home!
