Perhaps nothing is more representative of who you are than your home. The paintings you put on the wall, the colors you use, and more all symbolize you and your family’s personality.
As you go on the hunt looking at ideas for home décor in your home, you want to incorporate personal touches wherever possible. As much fun as it is to create idea boards and pin new pictures on Pinterest, you want to create a space that’s uniquely your own.
To help you make the perfect look in your house, here are a few ideas for home décor that you can easily personalize by adding your unique touch.
1. Make A Gallery Wall
Gallery walls are displays of framed pictures, words, or ideas. On your wall you can incorporate images of your family along with quotes that represent your values. Add images of places you’ve traveled to, or where you used to call home. Whatever images you choose, make them personal to you. This way, you’ll have a gallery of your family that can never be replicated.

2. Add The Same Personal Flair To Your Mantle
Your mantle is another space in your home that is easy to make uniquely your own. Find images and objects that represent your family. For example, you might add the flowers you had at your wedding, along with a painting with your wedding vows. Or, you might want to use seasonal pieces that represent the traditions your family enjoys each year.

3. Dig In Your Grandma’s Treasure Chest
Grandparents have some of the best stuff. It’s personal and it adds a spunky vintage touch. Incorporate old plates, vases and pictures into your décor. When your houseguests ask about it, you’ll have a great story to tell.

4. Start Painting Old Furniture
Your personalized touch can extend onto the furniture you have in your home. Turn old tables into masterpieces by painting them with your personal style. Create a unique look by sprucing up old pieces with new colors and stains. By painting your furniture, you make it your own. Even without going overboard, each piece you make becomes unique to your home and can’t be reproduced.

5. Reduce, Reuse, And Recycle
Chances are you have old objects laying around your house gathering dust. Or, perhaps something caught your eye at a local thrift shop that you’re still waiting to find the perfect spot to include it in your home. These items add perfect personalized touches throughout your home. Use old buckets to store bottles of wine. Or, use mason jars as candleholders. Get creative with how you use old objects around the house and your space will come to life with your unique personality.
