Happy Thursday designers! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for my extended weekend!
As I’m finishing up each room in our place I’m realizing that you always have those questions of, what else does the room need? Do you have those moments? You can’t put your finger on it, but it just needs something else? Well I’m here to help! Let me take you through some of the things I look for when I’m thinking my room needs something.
I’m big on texture. I love fluffy pillows and blankets, wood-grained vases, and table runners. It’s amazing how a piece of cloth, fur, or something earthy can bring a lot to a room instantly.
For the most part, I like neutral pallets, but I honestly do believe there’s such thing as too neutral. If you’re sticking with tan and creams, make sure you find neutral based decor with a pattern. The pattern adds depth and makes the color scheme seem to have more emphasis. I prefer to do a neutral pallet with some extra bold patterns either thrown into the room with a rug, a piece of wall art, or even painting the wall with a design.
Now, since I do more neutrals to keep things light, and airy, I try to find one item to really add a pop to the room. I’m a HUGE lover of rugs. Top place I find them, Urban Outfitters Online. They have the BEST colorful, pattern-filled rugs. Another wonderful place is Anthropologie, but UO is usually more in my price range. You can also do this with a statement piece of art, bold pillows on a neutral couch or bedspread, or again, paint an accent wall with your complimentary color.
Last, add something personal. I love basing my rooms off something personal each time. My living room is just tons of arrows. I love arrows, the significance of their story, moving forward into greatness inspires me. Our bedroom, I have pieces of my grandmothers in jewelry, and mirrors with gold accents to go with the navy, and gold theme. Our guest room is very personal. It’s our travel room. We have a map marked with the places we’ve been together, wood statues of animals from trips and pictures to keep the memories alive. It doesn’t matter what it is, but a home ALWAYS feels put together when each room feels personal.
Hope this helps those of you stuck with the details!
