When buying a house, filling every room, every corner, and every space can be daunting, especially when you’re a first time homeowner or are making a big jump in square footage. After all, this is where you’re going to come home to after a long day at work, it’s where you’re going to raise your family, and it’s where you’re going to share stories with your friends. Just as your home is a long term investment, the way in which you decorate it should reflect lasting quality. As soon as the walls are painted and the furniture is mapped out, forget the mass produced print everybody can find at a Homegoods and look for something that will give character to your new home. Whether that means going to an art festival or hunting at local galleries, establish a comfortable budget and look to buy true art pieces for your walls or tabletops. If you buy something that you like but mainly pull the trigger because of the price, you are going to end up spending more money by continuing to replace it until you find something you absolutely love, so make your move the first time around and invest in quality. Before you know it, you will have a hand picked, individual collection that holds value and makes your home absolutely one of a kind.
