You may not have noticed this, but the way a person decorates their home says a lot about them as a person. It’s not like waking up and getting dressed in the morning – that is more commonly a reflection of your mood on the day itself. Home aesthetics, on the other hand, is a deeper portrayal of your personality. Are you, someone who loves cooking or someone who listens to lo-fi? Well, if this sparks questions in your mind then here’s what we think your home aesthetic says about you.
The minimalistic home aesthetic is pretty straightforward – you’re a simple person. You probably declutter your wardrobe every other month and seek to live an uncomplicated life. Basics are all you really need when it comes to decor and you try to purchase items in a clean colour palette, typically white, grey or cream. Moving homes is also a breeze for you, without the need to worry about packing box after box. Overall, you’re just a super chill person.
Given the chance, you would move to the countryside in a heartbeat. You love everything nature and your home aesthetic includes wooden-themed furniture, emulating a sense of comfort and warmth. The kitchen is also your favourite place in your home, and you spend a lot of time recreating meals or desserts you saw on Food Network or TikTok. Among your peers, you’re known as friendly and welcoming, often inviting loved ones over for dinner, drinks and quality conversations.
You love having a large space when it comes to laying out your home interior, which often explains why you would always try to purchase the penthouse. Dark colour schemes like black and woody tints attract you, showcasing your edgy side. At least once, you’ve tried to DIY your own chandelier, made of hanging light bulbs on a plank of wood. You’re also a coffee lover and probably have a corner set up with tools to make your own cold brew. And as you’re grinding the beans by hand, lo-fi and indie tunes play in the background.
Secretly, you wish you were born in the Victorian era, or maybe you just have an interest in collecting antiques. Every room in your home highlights pieces you bought from a garage sale or a thrift store that comes with interesting stories. Some may see these items as clutter, but you see them as ornaments, and you wish to have more. You’re a very sentimental person, appreciate the meaning of life, and you’re always gifting unique items to your friends.
Nothing excites you more than a clean wall above your bedframe, couch or dining table that invites you to adorn it with a large painting. Canvases throughout your home are most often purchased from a local art gallery or even produced on your own. Sometimes your appreciation for art goes beyond flat surfaces and certain corners display rare sculptures or artistic vases. You’re never afraid of bright colours, which reflect your bubbly personality and define you as the fashionista of the friend group.
Free-spirited at heart, you aim to define your own journey in life. Your home generally features cosy elements like throw pillows, patterned carpets and quilted sheets. A particular nook in your living room houses sound bath equipment while another space is reserved for your morning yoga sessions. You’re a spiritual person who believes in manifestation and exudes positive energy – which is what your peers love about you.
