It would be incredible to have a designer walk into your home and share with you their secret sauce to the perfect home décor, right? Well, for most of us, that just won’t be an option, and while that might be appealing, there are several reasons why incorporating décor pieces that reflect who you are, matters.

            Personality – Do you love a quirky wallpaper? Are your cats running along the walls on custom-built catwalks from room to room? How we incorporate our décor into a space shares a lot about our personality. For instance, that quirky wallpaper may say “I like the 50’s” or “I think this is a fun pop of color!” Either way, décor is a great way to let your personality shine.

            Style – Whether you are a new homeowner or dwell in a family home passed through generations, the ways you decide to outfit each space, speaks to who you are. Maybe you love color and love the way your deep blue cabinets enhance the copper countertop. Or maybe you are in a mountain setting and allow the inside of your home to enhance the natural beauty around you. Either way, these seemingly subtle means of creating a space shows off your style.

            Values – Home décor can also reflect our values. Be it your favorite religious verse or photos of the family, someone can learn a lot about you form the details.

Distressed Wood Accent Décor | Sylvan Creek Designs | Prescott, AZ

There are two foundational rules of home décor. The first is that accessories should be places in threes. The other is that a range of texture and color in a set palette can add a dynamic touch to a room. How boring would our homes become if big box stores decided the range of décor colors, textures and breadth of décor we could place into our homes that are so uniquely us? It would begin to deteriorate the notion of a family home; the idea that we are all unique in the things we use to tell our stories or navigate our lives.

Distressing wood is the process of enhancing the natural wood grain to give prominence to the natural beauty of a given object. This can be done in a variety of ways, here are some of the most popular ways interior design studios and DIY champions add character to their home accessories.

  1. Rough it up – taking a wire brush or hammer to the wood will serve to enhance the grain or create indentions to five new wood pieces a lived-in feel.
  2.  Dry Brushing – many DIYers will take a dry paintbrush and dip the end of it into their desired paint color and lightly brush it across the wood to give a weathered look
  3. Paint & Scrape – a mix of each method, one can paint their wood piece and take a scrapper to the fresh coat in random places to distress the piece.
