10. Color Me Enchanted!
One way to help your home reflect your personality is to dip into your color palate and add a splash of your favorite hue. Whether your ogle over all things orange or are green with envy over woodland colors, paints come in every color of the rainbow and can transform your space without breaking the bank!
9. Book Lover’s Paradise
Word nerds can create their own Book Lover’s Paradise with the addition of bookshelves to hold their horde. A comfy reading chair, a good lamp, and plenty of books are the basis for a literary haven. Book cover posters, wall adhesives with a favorite book quotes, and even mini-recreations of literary locations can turn a bland space to a a work of art! Whether you prefer the fantastic style of a Hogwart’s inspired space, or are more of a tartan-clad lass who binge-reads Outlander, book themed rooms can showcase your love of literature.
8. Team Spirit
Sports enthusiasts can show their team spirit with a room that reflects their passion. Outfit your Sports Den with a large screen television (a must for game night!), plenty of comfortable seating, and keep the refreshments close at hand! Team inspired accessories help show your allegiance and personalize the space. So, even if your team is in a bit of a slump, you can’t help but win with your show of team spirit!
7. Fly Your Fandom Flag
Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Outlander, Supernatural… no matter what your fandom, there are accessories to help flaunt your obsession. A Doctor Who TARDIS inspired kitchen? A Dragon-themed bedroom, befitting the Mother of Dragons? A tartan study suitable for a highland manor home? Yes, please.
6. Culinary Casual
Foodies will get rave reviews over their “culinary casual” style. Bookshelves bursting with tasty tomes. Delectable art that will make your mouth water. A vintage bistro table that reminds you of that picturesque little place just off the Rue de l’Abreuvoir. Crisp white dishes to showcase the food, quaint gingham napkins, and a robust display of wines. A perfect place to enjoy a meal, or to relax with a nightcap.
5. Old Hollywood Movie Mania
Fashion your home to showcase your Old Hollywood style. Dramatic black and white makes quite an impact. Pair crisp white walls with vintage black and white prints of Hollywood icons. James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Humphrey Bogart add a bit of dramatic flair. Theater seats instead of recliners set the tone. Instead of a wetbar, consider a “concession stand” complete with a theater style popcorn machine. Expect rave reviews!
4. Star Style
The astronomy buff can create a space that glorifies, well… Space! The heavenly bodies make for a heavenly home. Planetary pillows, constellation posters and, of course, a telescope in the place of honor near the window all help to create a style that shines brighter than the sun.
3. Coffee House Chic
A good cuppa joe is a thing of beauty. So it stands to reason that a room inspired by a good cuppa joe would be a wonderful (and energizing) way to start the day. In order to live up to its name, the Coffee House Chic space is not complete without a good coffee maker. A comfortable sofa for socializing, good music, a chair and table for your laptop, and plenty of throw rugs, throw pillows, and maybe some decorative java signs, help to complete the coffee lover’s eclectic space.
2. Walk on the Wild Side
The nature enthusiast will be happy to take a walk on the wild wise in an outdoor inspired space. Include plenty of plants, rich earth tones, warm wood tones. Choose environmentally responsible fabrics, such as cotton or bamboo. Paints that are low odor are a good choice and offer a wide range of hues to help bring the outdoors inside.

Animal lovers can create a sanctuary for their fur babies. Consider easy to clean floor styles such as tile, since it makes shedding easy to clean up. Pet beds are an easy way to encourage your four legged friend to sleep somewhere other than your favorite chair. A bin of pet toys means that play time is never very far away, yet still keeps the clutter under control.
