Coordinating a Room
Don’t let the fear of coordinating a room put you in a panic! Here are a few ideas to help you:
- A minimum of three fabrics, in mixed patterns and complementary colors, will achieve that “designer” look.
- A dramatic floral can be a pretty accent or the centerpiece of the room when grounded with coordinating stripes and solids.
- Don’t draw attention to just one area. Dress up a plain sofa with a mix of solid and patterned accent pillows, or use colorful curtains to bring the room together.
Accent Tables Add Comfort
Make any chair or sofa more inviting by ensuring that it has a side table. The addition of a side table encourages guests to bring their cup of coffee and get comfortable.
Look beyond the obvious when decorating. Imagine gates paired together to create height in a room as wall decor, or place them around windows as shutters. Go horizontal with them and you have a unique headboard.
Soften the Look
Make your bedroom romantic and feminine. Choosing a soft color palette, adding chenille paired with updated florals adds just the right amount of romance in this retreat.
Old is New
Add warmth and character to your home by selecting items with distressed finishes. Mixing weathered furnishings with crisp, new decorative accessories gives an eclectic vibe to a room without making it looked perfectly staged.
