But for most of us the unkind realities of economics have to come into matters somewhere. However, the cheap international manufacturing boom combined with a bit of down-home Kiwi ingenuity, practicality and common sense means that we needn’t compromise unduly when it comes to keeping our homes spruce, attractive and comfortable. Tip one: keep your eyes and ears open. The cunning home decorator is constantly on the lookout for ideas to improve their home in small but significant ways. Newspapers, magazines, television and the places you visit from day-to-day can all provide hints or practical solutions for making your home a delightful place to be, without breaking the bank. Tip two: look out for bargains and special offers on paints, wallpapers, curtains, fabrics and home furnishings. Plan ahead a little so that you can buy now when it’s cheap and use it later when you need to. Tip three: avoid false economies. Yes, you could probably repaint your windows yourself, but a professional will do it in a quarter of the time, four times as neatly. A little money invested in the really important details will pay handsome dividends. Tip four: tasteful homeware draws in the eye and creates a positive impression. There’s a profusion of homeware items currently filling our stores, much of it available to the keen bargain-hunter at genuinely silly prices. Choose carefully and $20 could bring about a $200 transformation to your room. Tip five: take pride in your surroundings. It’s easy, with the efforts and strains of family and working life, to let things slip a little. Encourage the kids to tidy up after themselves and keep up your side of the bargain too. Use a rack for newspapers and magazines and make sure dirty plates and mugs are taken to the kitchen by whoever uses them when they’re finished. Finally, get hold of some flowers once a fortnight. Their scent and colour could be just the finishing touch your living quarters need. Creating a welcoming, stylish and unique home in 2012 Chic design style and comfort themes will define interior decorating ideas in 2012. Soft home furnishings, luxurious and pleasant materials, attractive and cheerful colours, and comfortable and beautiful furniture design with interesting details will help create welcoming, unique and enviably stylish homes. Layers of silky fabrics and luxurious wool, the combination of velvet and brick, stainless steel and wood design ideas create attractive contrasts. Mixing decor accessories of natural stone and shiny plastic, metal, wood and fabrics add charm and unique character to contemporary design. Large mirrors, mirrored tiles, beautiful wallpapers with Swarovski crystals or silver details that reflect more light into the room are modern trends for 2012. Modern paint colours and wallpaper patterns, inspired by natural plants will add branches, flowers and leaves textures to decorating ideas, offering natural light colours and chic eco-style design. To add decor interest, combinations of traditional, contemporary and exotic materials, various ethnic styles and colours, inspired by African, Asian and Middle Eastern decorating ideas, offer warm, cheerful and stylish interior design.
