Our Personality is Reflected in The Home

Last update: 18 June, 2021

Generally, our personality is reflected in the home. This can be verified, normally, by the different decorative resources that we use: colors, shapes, distribution, and style. Everything is part of a defining set of ourselves.

The goal we usually set ourselves is that we can create a peaceful, calm, and comfortable environment. The idea is that we feel in harmony with everything that surrounds us. If we achieve this, it means that we’ll be satisfied and calm.

However, this can’t be acquired without thinking about what to add in each place. Certain elements can show who we are, what qualities we have, and how we express our personality. In other words, it’s considered a summary of our own life.

Color, the true reflection of your personality

Since we were little we used to sympathize with some colors that, after all, were pleasant to us or that we associated with something we liked. Once we became adults, we expanded our tastes, but tend to opt for those that identify us the most.

For example, those with more independent, active, and individualistic personalities choose warm, radiant tones; instead, people who are calm and serious in character tend toward darker tones.

It’s also true that if we’re more daring, we lean towards colors that try to offer a distinguished, innovative and modern image.

The style that reflects your personality

Is there a possibility that style reflects how we really are? It’s true that we’ve got different ways of working, but through interior design, we achieve a specific type of appearance with which to define our personality.

  • The most current styles, such as contemporary, minimalist, or mid-century, demonstrate the current reality. In other words, a process of affirmation is verified that fits with the urban life of the moment, that accommodates simple and functional precepts.
  • People who are outgoing, dynamic, and cheerful tend to choose more sophisticated and elegant styles, take care of every detail and work with the different components found in the interiors.
  • Those who decide to distance themselves from reality are linked to more hippie concepts when it comes to establishing combinations due to a lack of interest in constructing an internal discourse.
  • On the other hand, simplicity is configured as a basic scheme that’s reflected in styles such as rustic, in country houses, or, for example, in city apartments where functionality reigns. The idea isn’t to apply extravagances that are out of tune.

A house speaks for itself

Decorate with colorful furniture without fear of being wrong

There’s the possibility that a house explains, by itself, who we really are. The decoration that’s established will show what our tastes, customs, and hobbies are.

It undoubtedly exemplifies whether a person is messy, careful, or Bohemian. In this sense, we shouldn’t stay on the mere surface, since even the smallest detail can reflect our behavior in life.

For this reason, the home becomes the appendix of the individual personality, in the same way that it can be the clothes we wear, the car we drive, or the different ways we act.

Make the right choice

It’s useless if we decorate without a clear objective. This can blur the way of being of oneself and generate inaccuracies and doubts. Actually, you have to be true to yourself and personalize your rooms following your own criteria.

It’s essential that the items to be placed in each room are chosen in a coherent and sensible way. This is the only way to define one’s identity.

In short, it’s time to work on the interior aesthetics according to personal convenience, but always from an objective perspective. Put an end to the idea of copying impersonal models.
