Exceptional Interior Design

Updated on March 07, 2016

Exceptional home and décor is something anyone can get if they are determined. Look at various interior concepts and see what would work for your home. There is something here for anyone at any household and on any budget. The main thing is to be open-minded about your interior design and creative and exercise some flexibility as well.

Large Baskets on the Floor

One distinctive look that works for many homes is to place large baskets on the floor. Baskets are both a useful and attractive home and décor item. Baskets have been used by all cultures across time and have always had widespread appeal. However, you have to be precise about the arrangement. If done incorrectly, it can just look untidy. Therefore, place the baskets strategically to achieve a deliberate look.

Match Fresh Flowers to Draperies.

It looks lovely when fresh flowers match draperies exactly. In other words, place purple roses next to lilac curtains. This strategy does seem counter-intuitive, as if the flowers would not stand out. This is not the case however, as the one enhances the other. Having the fresh flowers match the curtains that are behind them exactly creates a very coordinated look.

White China Display

White china is easy to find, and at very reasonable prices. Nothing looks more elegant than well-arranged white china. This goes along with the old saying, "less is more." Some white china pieces have even been spotted at "dollar stores," by those with a discerning eye. If a piece of white china breaks, it is normally easy to find a replacement piece. White china looks expensive for some reason and it is very chic.

Colored Glass Vases

It is fun to collect colored glass vases. These are commonly found at thrift stores and do not cost much. Try to make groupings of vases of similar color with different heights. Taller vases go to the back. You could also do a multicolored display but this is a bit harder to achieve. If you are new to home and design, stick to different shades of the same color.

You can make your home look gorgeous with baskets and fresh flowers. Some people like white china to create a dramatic effect in the dining room. Colored glass is very distinctive and makes your table look lovely. Exceptional interior design will lift your spirits as you begin to love your home again.

      Frankly, my dear, I love the varied colors of Fiesta Ware, but my husband thinks everything, bathroom towels included, should all be the same color. We had white china for a long time until most of it broke. So, I'll take your ideas into consideration.

      I like the baskets and the large vases. Less clutter when the items are large. Good ideas!
