Tips For Tying a Room TogetherTuesday, March 28, 2017
Transforming a house into a home that you love requires a personal touch, but it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to interior decor. Painting and adding wallpaper seems like the obvious option- but you're renting and aren't allowed to change the colour scheme, or maybe you just prefer neutral walls? Either way, the right accessories are needed to bring in some personality and tie everything together. Here are a few examples of the accessories that will give your home an interior design boost:
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Wall accents bring a bit more interest to the room and give you a focal point to concentrate on. Probably, the best wall accents for tying the room together are mirrors. Not only can you get beautiful, elegant and ornate mirrors in a wide range of styles and colours, but strategically placed mirrors will reflect light and space making any room in your home appear larger than it really is. When buying mirrors for your home, it is important that you choose pieces which match the rest of your room in terms of style, colour, and size if you want it to truly tie the room together.
Art on Display
Of course, mirrors aren’t the only things that look great when they adorn our walls – well-placed artworks can brighten up any room, add more interest and make a statement. If you want to improve the look of your room and ensure that your interior décor is unique, purchasing an original artwork from a budding artist is an affordable way of doing so. Just choose something you love and something which fits with the theme of your room in some way, even if it’s just that it has a similar colour palette, to avoid creating a room that looks mismatched and badly put together.
A Rug Really Ties the Room Together
Take a leaf out of The Dude’s book and find yourself a rug that really ties the room together. This is a particularly important if you have wooden or laminate floors, which can be quite cold and unappealing without one. Modern rugs come in all shapes, sizes, colours and textures, so it is very easy to find one which matches for compliments the décor of your room, and this you should do to add some colour and cohesion to the floor space of your rooms.
Plush throw pillows are the ideal accessory for those of you who like to play it safe because they enable you to add flashes of colour and pattern which are not permanent and which can be added to or removed as your tastes change. Pillows and cushions can be used in most rooms of the home, and they are one thing that you can afford to take a chance with in terms of mix and match colours that don’t necessarily have to match the rest of your décor.
Light it Up
The right kind of lighting can set the mood for any room, whether it be a dimmer switch in the bathroom, a big floor lamp in the living room or fairy lights in the bedroom. Combined with interesting lamp shades in unique patterns and complimentary colours, they will add that finishing touch that your rooms really need.
