I like rooms which are designed with a way of playfulness and light-heartedness, or after they have one thing quirky in them, even whether it is delicate! A whimsical fashion could make a home really feel like a cheerful residence! Whimsy presents character and character, whereas eliminating pretentiousness, stuffiness or seriousness that’s typically part of the design world. I feel we typically lose our sense of childhood marvel after we get older, so whereas some would possibly lengthy for a extra severe or “grown up residence” others wish to retain a way of youthfulness and amusement and categorical that by means of their residence.
Generally you’ll be able to instantly spot one thing fanciful in a room, however different occasions it may be a pleasant shock to uncover whimsical components which are integrated extra subtly right into a room.
Whimsical decor may not be everybody’s cup of tea, however I feel it’s enjoyable! We’ve integrated a way of caprice in a method or one other to all of our houses through the years, whether or not it was by means of splashes of blissful colours, patterns or equipment. At present I needed to share just a few examples from our previous few houses and speak about our adorning plans for our present residence!
A few of our OG running a blog group would possibly keep in mind my DIY Map Wallpaper on this little corridor. It was a spur of the second thought, however I feel usually that’s how a few of the most charming whimsical designs come collectively. In the event you overthink an excessive amount of you would possibly hen out :).
I fell in love with these curtains years in the past and have saved them with me each transfer since. If this colourful sample isn’t whimsical, I don’t know what’s! I haven’t discovered the correct place for them in our new residence, however relaxation assured they may seem someplace. Most likely in an upstairs bed room or hallway.
One other enjoyable method so as to add whimsy to your decor is to convey a way of childlike enjoyable to your house. For instance, I am keen on animals. We all the time have charming animal collectible figurines, lamps, drawer pulls and artwork round our residence. Whereas we don’t have youngsters at residence any extra, that doesn’t imply we now have to have a very severe grownup fashion home. We nonetheless are youngsters at coronary heart :). Nonetheless, we use restraint in how a lot whimsy we convey right into a room and select whimsical items which have a bit of sophistication — we would like it to enhance our general fashion.
The bunny door knocker on the entrance door of our final home was a unusual contact I added–it made our residence really feel a lot like ME! (You possibly can see extra of this Dutch door on this put up)
I additionally love to inform a narrative with our decor. Since I am keen on animals, I get pleasure from picturing your complete scene the place animals would possibly reside, similar to a meadow or enchanted backyard or any sort of fairytale setting. That visible picture in my thoughts or on a temper board makes it additional enjoyable to decide on further equipment that assist create that scene.
I really feel like this whimsical artwork I acquired not too long ago is how I view life. 🙂
I additionally LOVE residing by the ocean. I’ve all the time loved bringing in coastal artwork and decor wherever we’ve lived. It fuels my creativeness as I image the setting of a quaint residence on the shores of the ocean. Now we actually do reside on the shores of the ocean, however I nonetheless love to make use of my creativeness for the way I would like our residence to really feel.
Scalloped patterns all the time really feel subtly whimsical to me. This scalloped rattan tray and blue and white scalloped trim pitcher (an vintage I discovered not too long ago) are enjoyable new touches of caprice in our residence! The whale tail wooden spreaders (similar here) peeking out of the pitcher make me smile, too.
We’re simply ending up a rework of our present residence so we haven’t embellished but, however I can’t wait to herald my whimsical adorning fashion. We deliberately selected conventional components as a timeless backdrop for the ever evolving seasons and issues we love. A few of the whimsical components is perhaps so delicate that nobody else will discover or know the story of what they’re , however the essential factor in adorning isn’t what different individuals assume or see, it’s what your house FEELS wish to you!
We are able to’t wait to begin adorning with equipment and materials! Actually, we already purchased our first “whimsical style-setting” fabric which options the entire colours we’ll use! Shades of blues, greens, golds, whites and a mushy blush pink. Quickly I’ll be capable of usher in our different equipment and have enjoyable styling every season.
