Home decor is more than just choosing colors and furniture, it's an expression of your personality, lifestyle and taste. This is why it is important to think carefully before you start.
Using interior decoration is good for morale!
First, think about the function of each room: is it a place to relax, work or socialise? This will help you determine the mood you want to create. Then choose a color palette that appeals to you and matches the mood you want to give your home decor. Don't be afraid to play with textures and patterns to add depth to your decor.
Once you have determined the mood of each room, you can focus on furniture and accessories. Furniture should be functional and comfortable, while reflecting your personal style. Accessories, such as throw pillows, rugs, and artwork, add pops of color and texture to your space. Don't forget the indoor plants that bring a touch of greenery and freshness to your home!

Other times, all it takes is a few small changes that you can easily make yourself. Home staging indeed corresponds to this inexpensive and rather easy technique which consists in reusing the furniture that one already has by transforming it, by sanding or painting, For example. The technique is being developed with a view to helping to sell a property more easily by enhancing its assets. The technique has entered the homes of individuals with few means but wishing to modify their interior decoration. But in any case, the benefits will be notorious and visible. Not to mention the pleasure it gives to take care of its decoration. Putting “hands in” to be able to say “it was me who did it” quite simply. Anyone who has ever taken up this challenge will agree with us!
Meeting the various players in the world of interior design
And it is precisely for the magic that emanates from decoration that we decided to explore this area. And to share it with you, through our blog. This is a first step which could then lead to a book, a kind of White Paper on Decoration!
We propose to meet the "craftsmen" of this decoration, whether they are designers, interior designers, decorators, creators, etc., so that they can share with us their secrets, their desires, their ways of working, their advice also to help everyone become "the designer of their own space".
All of them, each in their art and counting on their experience, their training, their origins and their encounters, will allow us to penetrate this somewhat closed world, which decoration and Design are sometimes .
Long reserved for the elite, for some time we have been witnessing a healthy democratization of decoration. The programs had a real impact, popularizing this “art” and above all showing that it was within everyone's reach! The emergence of large chain stores has also contributed to accentuating this phenomenon. By offering extremely stylish items at increasingly affordable prices. Some brands no longer hesitate to have their collection drawn by recognized designers. Or to stage their production in order to inspire you. A way to make design a little more accessible to as many people as possible.
New modes of consumption are also on the rise, it is “second hand”. Sites like Le Bon coin or Vinted, among others, allow buyers to get their hands on second-hand designer pieces, often in excellent condition. Here are new ways to have fun at a lower cost! And to avoid excessive overconsumption by giving our objects a second life. A way to respond effectively to several issues, including environmental protection.
Interior decoration: at a major environmental turning point
So, contrary to what one might think, no point of futility in the decoration, but on the contrary a great utility especially at a time when environmental issues are on the program of the development of decoration as one of the main hobbies of the French. To do this, you must use its decoration.
When for decades our parents and grandparents bought furniture that lasted a lifetime. Sometimes even passed down from generation to generation. The current era is one of constant change. We get tired of a table, or a piece of furniture and we change it more and more often.
And the environment?
Plywood and plastic have replaced solid wood and the financial investment is much lower than before when you want to buy a dining room set.
Good news for brands that are rubbing their hands. For consumers too who enjoy themselves.
But less good news for the environment. Who suffers from the increase in the need for raw materials and these enormous quantities of wasted products.
All the challenge of decoration in the twenty-first century will therefore be to reconcile these new modes of consumption with a more moderation of raw materials and above all more responsible purchasing. Betting on products made locally with durable, ecological materials, incidentally low in VOC emissions. Because it is also about protecting consumers. Gone are the years when we did not worry about the possible harmfulness of paints, glues, agglomerates or varnishes. Not to mention asbestos and other materials declared carcinogenic. We are now entering an era where well-being will intervene at different levels: if being comfortable at home requires a pleasant and warm decoration, living in a healthy environment will also be taken into account
Finally, for a personal touch, consider adding elements of your personal history. Whether it's family photos, travel keepsakes, or art you've collected, these items add warmth and personality to your home.
So, ready to embark on the adventure of interior design? Remember, decorating is a personal and creative affair, so let your instincts guide you and have fun!
And don't forget to share your decorating tips in the comments below, we love hearing new ideas for decorating our homes.
“Our mission, to all, if we accept it. ” will therefore be to ensure that the decoration, while fulfilling its mission of "enhancing life" brings its stone to the environmental protection building. A hell of a program you will tell me that deserves that all goodwill unite.
And at Quark, we are happy to take on the challenge, with you of course! So, do not hesitate to join us, to read us, to share your experiences. Because it is together that we will be able to go even further in this magical world… which is Decoration!
