Bump And Beyond


Adding a Touch of Personalisation to Your Family Home*

The majority of us will take great pride in our family home. This is the space in which we kick back and relax after a long day at work and where our little ones will return after a (not quite so) long day at school. It is where we spend quality time together and bond. It is where we eat our morning meals, lunchtime meals, and evening meals. It’s where we watch films, sing, dance, and make memories together. So, it’s not all too surprising that we want it to be a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing space. In order to achieve this, many families have verged towards minimalism
This is a style that minimise the number of unnecessary belongings that we have. It helps to reduce clutter and free up space for activities. Less mess generally means less stress, which is positive for parents who already have a lot on their plates. However, minimalism can also come hand in hand with a bit of a blank and vacant feel. Your home can look as if it is fresh out of a catalogue or an interior design Pinterest board. While this is a good thing in many ways, it can also easily feel impersonal.
You don’t want your living space to look as if anyone could live there. You want it to look as if you and your family live there, and you’d want anyone who walks in to get a feel of your personalities and vibe. So, how can you strike a balance? A good idea is to maintain the minimalist aesthetic in general, to maintain cleanliness and order, but add a touch of personalisation to your home at the same time. Here are a few steps that you can take in order to achieve this!
Framed Photographs
Nowadays, we take more photographs than ever. Improvements in technology and the accessibility of technology mean that the majority of us have a smartphone with a brilliant camera that can capture high-quality images of us and the ones we love. You probably have thousands of snaps of your little ones stored away on your device. 
We also tend to share these images through social media or blogs - uploading image after image of our kids and highlighting the brilliant things that we are up to as a family. But this has also resulted in a reduction in the number of people printing images. This is a shame, as framed photographs of your family could make a great addition to your interior design. Consider having your favourite snaps printed as film prints and placing them in frames that perfectly match your interior design. They could be freestanding on shelves or mantelpieces, or you could have them hung up on the walls.  
Family Photography
If you want to take things a step further and add a more professional touch to proceedings, you could engage with professional family photography through a reliable company like Light Republic Family Photography. This will serve as a fun day out in and of itself. You and your family can head to a studio and have a full blown photoshoot together. You will get high quality images and then be able to choose to have them presented in a way that best suits your taste - from prints to canvases. These can then be placed in your home, adding a professional and stunning touch to your home design. People won’t be able to walk through the front door without knowing exactly who lives in your home!
Remember that all aesthetics aren’t visual. You may want to scent your home in a signature way. Just as many of us can be recognised by a particular perfume that we wear, certain smells can be highly associated with your home. If you use the same scent over the years, your little ones will always associate that smell with the happy memories of growing up. Now, there are various ways to scent your home. You could use spray air fresheners. You could use scented candles (just remember to keep these out of reach of children and to put them out when you are not in the same room). You could even simply bake regularly!

These are just a few different ways to personalise your family home! Incorporate them into your lifestyle and you will have the perfect place to live that reflects you and your loved ones perfectly in next to no time!
