Many of us have fond memories of our childhoods. Of course, not everyone views it as a wonderful time, but most people have some good memories of being small. One of the things many people remember well is their home, or perhaps the homes of relatives. If you’re planning on redecorating your current home, thinking of your childhood is a great way to find inspiration.
Take Inspiration from Fond Memories
If you’ve got some particularly fond memories of your childhood, they could inspire a new look in your home. Maybe you remember a wonderful summer beach holiday or going to the cinema once a month. These things can help you think of themes and ideas for decorating your home.
Look At Old Photos and Possessions
Your memory can sometimes need a bit of a jump start. If you’re having trouble remembering things clearly, have a look at some photos and old things. You might feel inspired by the decor, fashion, gadgets or anything else you happen to find.
Turn to Your Own Children
Trying to remember your own children isn’t always easy, but paying attention to your kids can help. Watching them do their thing can often prompt a memory of your childhood. You can also ask them to make decor suggestions to get connected with your inner child.
Think of Your Favourite Stories
Everyone has favourite childhood stories, from Enid Blyton to Harry Potter. They can be excellent for inspiring your decor choices, like this infographic from Factory Direct Flooring on fairy tale homes.
