Home Sweet Home. How much we are investing in this concept! And strive to make it comfortable and cozy. And, of course, beautiful and unique. And perfection is known, there is no limit. Therefore, swarming ideas for the house in our heads, like bees in a hive. And we are restless, rush between Furniture and hardware stores in a bid to implement all of these ideas.
Meanwhile, our preobrazovatelsky itching is quite possible to meet less costly ways than buying new furniture or another (and so troublesome) repair. Let's put aside all their revolutionary plans and see what interesting ideas for the house with their own hands can be realized already today, though. Here is the promised Quartet ideas.
The idea first. Furniture
It can rightly be called a soloist our quartet. That furniture casts a critical glance we hoping to see the reasons for their design initiatives. But buying new furniture - it's too easy solution. But we are not looking for easy ways! We choose creative.
Upholstered furniture, for example, can be dressed in new clothes. And it is not necessary for this drag. You can make capes and veils. And it can be done from any tissue or even of its residues. If you are familiar with the technique of patchwork (if not, be sure to check!). Make curtains of small patches or larger quilted pieces.
Gorgeous cape to the sofa and chairs can be made from a single piece of fabric. To do this you need two paintings: one lies along the couch, the other across. The first covers the sofa covered from floor to floor via the armrests and seat. Transverse web width should equal the width of the sofa, the length - to cover the top of the back of the sofa to the floor. Use for this cape fabric in different colors and textures - and you get almost a new soft furnishings.
And, you can link the new clothes to furniture. You can make it convenient for the cushions and ottomans. In general, the dress up, add the brightness and freshness.
A cabinet furniture (all kinds of cabinets, shelves, tables) can be well updated with decoupage. Use the secrets of the tissue of painting to transform their furniture. If you master the technique of decoupage difficult, fit and wallpaper, and self-adhesive film which can also update and decorate furniture.
The idea of a second. Light
Not exactly light itself and its surroundings. More precisely, the lamp. You agree that exclusive lamps - it's a good idea, which is also easy to implement. You can make new lampshades and diffusers. And you can decorate the old - unfashionable and uninteresting.
Materials for decorating lampshades can use the most unexpected: fur, feathers, artificial flowers, and even cocktail straws and old film. Look for master classes on decorating lamps, and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the abundance of creative ideas and ease of execution.
But decorating lampshades of old ideas are not limited to home! You can make new fixtures. The first is to think about the resuscitation of overage lampshades. And on the basis of their skeletons to construct downright masterpieces of design art. For these lampshades masters used not only traditional fabrics (silk, satin, cotton), but also felt, lace, crocheted lace, and even wallpaper.
For lampshades and covers without a skeleton in the course are (just do not be surprised!) Bottoms of plastic bottles, wooden clothespins, disposable plastic spoons and glasses, rings made of polypropylene pipes and a lot more then the other. And such interesting things get!
Here's another non-standard implementation of the idea for the house in the field of lighting design. An empty bottle or can (preferably a beautiful form) Christmas garlands and decorative ornament (flowers, bows, etc.). At the bottom of the bottle (the side near the bottom of) drilled hole for electrical wires, garland is placed in a bottle, decorated with taste and voila! Your miracle lamp is ready!
The idea of a third. Walls
It would seem, well, what can be done with the walls, except for how to change the wallpaper or plaster. And this is - again repair! Do not despair! Do not repair it sets out a large, wall, too, can transform.
First, the remnants of wallpaper, you can decorate the wall by the method of patchwork. Unleash your imagination and collect on the wall of an unusual pattern or a regular geometric pattern and pieces of wallpaper. You can thus paste over the wall (one!) From the floor to the ceiling. You can stick the pieces of contrasting wallpaper and put them in the frame.
What else will transform the walls in your home? For example, the wall pictures. More photos from the family album, to make mats and hang them on the wall. I do not like the pictures? Instead of using photos printed reproductions of paintings and landscape photography or other image. They can also decorate the walls. The main thing - to choose the correct setting and well (in terms of design) to place on the wall.
If you have children, then surely there is a children's drawings. They also can arrange wall. Moreover, not only children, but also in any other room. And you can make Japanese Tokon (decorative niche with the only decoration). Carve out some wallpaper large flower or a bird, choose a suitable background and is ready tokonoma. All of the most laconic and stylish!
The idea of the fourth. Stylish things
This idea, perhaps, the "dimensionless". Because any creative trifle can be called Sweet Home Alabama. That such things are fundamental to any ideas for the home. Such things make your home cozy. They emphasize your individuality.
Most importantly, these features are unique and, preferably, made with his own hands. What could it be?
All kinds of panels, made in different techniques of needlework (eg kviling). Related or stitched tablecloths and napkins. Decorated vases, boxes and clocks. Or, for example, an ornamental tree.
Such a tree is called the tree of happiness. For its production, you will need a flower pot (or other container), branch (stick, pipe and so on.) For the trunk, newspapers and decorative coating for the crown, glue and thread. From crumpled paper, create a tight ball (15-20 cm in diameter). For the strength of the thread and wrap it obmazhte PVA glue - a crone. Make a hole in the ball and insert branch (pre-coated with varnish or paint). The trunk of a crown in a pot with a secure means of plaster or cement. And now the most important thing - obkleyte crown decorative coating. For him, you can use coffee beans, dry peas and lentils, paper and silk flowers, shells and beads ... In short everything that you can paste over the ball so that it resembled a round crown of trees. Zadekoriruyte cement in the pot and the pot itself (if necessary) and place your tree of honor, and a prominent place!
These are the ideas of your house with your own hands. And this is only a small fraction of those ideas that you can adopt. Surely, you yourself can come up with something to make your home cozy and unique. You love him and care about him, and then the life in your home would take place in peace and harmony.
