Many young couples feel bad when they have to move into an old house. They used to think that an old house is not an ideal house for newlyweds like them since old house is identical with old fashion, dull, and uninteresting. Actually, it is easy to make an old house looks more attractive.
We must choose some colors that look ideal with exterior and interior decor of that house. For example if we’re going to redecorate a Victorian styled house, we can cover interior walls with floral wallpapers. And then we can spread yellow and pink colors on furniture and accessories.
We can also combine those pink and yellow bright colors with floral motifs on the furniture and decorations. But if you think pink is too feminine for your old Victorian house, use beige, cream, and pale yellow colors for the furniture.
Those colors will make your interior decor looks fresher and freer. And if floral wallpaper is too extreme, complete your sofas with floral seat cushions in light pink color. An accent armchair or an ottoman with flower motif will also accentuate the Victorian living room decor in your old styled house.
Another easy way to renew the decor of an old house is adjusting the decoration to your old house architectural design. Check the architectural design of your own old house and look for the best interior decor ideas that are appropriate for your old house.
You’ll find ideas you need to redecorate your house on the internet and from magazines. Try to find old houses that have similar architectural design with yours. And then check their interior design. Next, you can start hunting furniture and accessories that are appropriate with decoration idea you found.
To complete your old house interior decor, you can find antique but artistic furniture and accessories in flea market, online stores, antique furniture stores, and auction centers. But if you want unique and antique furniture, you can try to build it by yourself. Try to make farm styled table using wood and make the table top looks dull and eroded.
