Home Decor Tips: The Three Things Every Room Needs

Every few years, the Coast Guard sends us to a new station which means a new home. With each new station, comes a new house – which means new decor. No two houses are the same. The floor plan, lighting and changing tastes lead to different decor. But even though our homes are constantly developing and changing, there are three things you should always take into consideration when redecorating.

Things Every Room Needs

Color Scheme

Each room should have a color scheme or theme. My daughter’s room is Minnie Mouse themed, our living room is themed with neutral colors and our Master Bedroom is themed with grey, blue and sand.

Rooms always look so much more pulled together when the colors flow. This is the base of creating the theme of your room and one of the most important parts.


It is so easy to disguise organization as decor. I love using cube shelves with cubes to organize and store. This is an easy way to hide clutter, organize and tie the room together. Ottomans, benches and shelves all add so much flair to a room, while also organizing!

how to personalize your bedroom


Pictures and other decor are what personalize a room. I love hanging family pictures and pictures of our wedding throughout our home. These pictures are reminders of what makes us a family.

In our master bedroom we’ve hung photos of our family and our wedding. All of these photos show the love our family has for each other. So when I had a giant blank wall, I knew I wanted it to reflect on my husband and I’s love for each other. A few weeks I wrote a post on How to Personalize Your Bedroom, where I spoke about Displate. Displate offers thousands of metal prints. You can find a print for every theme or occasion. I was able to find a beautiful metal print of a couple with a heart balloon that fits perfectly into our bedrooms theme. I placed the print underneath “B & M” letters standing for my husband and I’s initials.
