I really 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 model could make a home really feel like a cheerful dwelling! Whimsy gives character and persona, whereas eliminating pretentiousness, stuffiness or seriousness that’s generally part of the design world. I feel we generally lose our sense of childhood marvel once we get older, so whereas some would possibly lengthy for a extra severe or “grown up dwelling” others wish to retain a way of youthfulness and amusement and categorical that by way of their dwelling.
Typically you possibly can instantly spot one thing fanciful in a room, however different instances it may be a pleasant shock to uncover whimsical parts which are included extra subtly right into a room.
Whimsical decor may not be everybody’s cup of tea, however I feel it’s enjoyable! We’ve included a way of caprice in a technique or one other to all of our properties through the years, whether or not it was by way of splashes of blissful colours, patterns or equipment. At this time I needed to share a couple of examples from our previous few properties and speak about our adorning plans for our present dwelling!

I fell in love with these curtains years in the past and have stored them with me each transfer since. If this colourful sample isn’t whimsical, I don’t know what’s! I haven’t discovered the suitable place for them in our new dwelling, however relaxation assured they’ll seem someplace. In all probability in an upstairs bed room or hallway.
One other enjoyable means so as to add whimsy to your decor is to convey a way of childlike enjoyable to your property. For instance, I am keen on animals. We all the time have charming animal collectible figurines, lamps, drawer pulls and artwork round our dwelling. Whereas we don’t have children at dwelling any extra, that doesn’t imply we have now to have an excessively severe grownup model home. We nonetheless are children at coronary heart :). Nevertheless, 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 wish it to enrich our total model.

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 just lately) are enjoyable new touches of caprice in our dwelling! The whale tail wooden spreaders (similar here) peeking out of the pitcher make me smile, too.
We’re simply ending up a transform of our present dwelling so we haven’t embellished but, however I can’t wait to usher in my whimsical adorning model. We deliberately selected conventional parts as a timeless backdrop for the ever evolving seasons and issues we love. Among the whimsical parts may be so delicate that nobody else will discover or know the story of what they’re taking a look at, however the essential factor in adorning isn’t what different individuals suppose or see, it’s what your property FEELS wish to you!
We will’t wait to start out adorning with equipment and materials! In reality, we already purchased our first “whimsical style-setting” fabric which options all the colours we’ll use! Shades of blues, greens, golds, whites and a comfortable blush pink. Quickly I’ll be capable to herald our different equipment and have enjoyable styling every season.
