Every one knows designers and celebrity styles have all the tricks on hand at all times. They not only know everything there is to know, but they’re around the industry so often that if they don’t know they will learn it along the way. This is why we wanted to take the time and put together our take on the top decorating tips designers swear by. Our guide will not only ensure you get the most out of every room in your home, but it will ensure you can fully embrace your personal decorating style.
Take a Bold Stand in Small Spaces
Sometimes when we look at small spaces the last thing we want to do is bombard it with decor. However, contrary to popular belief, small spaces are perfect to add bold decorative items into it. Graphic prints, wallpapers, and more are perfect for smaller bathrooms as they make a bold contrast that feels open and airy.
Another misconception that designers are knocking is working with patterns and/or being afraid of them. Blending patterns work great when you want to add visual interest in any room. The idea of it is having the patterns truly become the focus without taking away from the rooms overall touch. Blend your patterns with neutrals to allow them to make the main statement on their own.
Color Your Hallway
While most hallways are kept pretty neutral, designers recommend taking them a step further and painting them a colorful hue. If you happen to be more reserved with color and consider your home mostly neutral, painting your hallway is one way to spice it up. Use a bold hue and allow it to be the main focus of your home. Pair with fun paintings to truly evolve the room and embrace the color.
Floor-to-ceiling shelving is one of those items that brighten the room overall. Furthermore, its one of those decorating items that truly add character to any room. So, not only are you getting a product that helps add storage to a room but it creates a multidimensional aesthetic.
Take a look at the room’s overall picture and consider what you really want to be displayed in the room. Once you have considered that, take it a step further and work towards creating balance. The key is creating a balance that makes the room feel as cohesive as possible without taking away from the room’s aesthetic. Create a different vibe that balances the room in general.
Take the Walls a Step Further
When in doubt, instead of painting your walls use wallpaper. Using wallpaper works great because it enables you to make the walls feel as grandiose as possible. Furthermore, it enables you to choose what type of decor you want to work with the wallpaper you have. Consider using a colorful wallpaper to make the room feel modern, or go for a minimal one to allow your furniture to be the focus.
Ground the Room
Instead of having the room feel all over the place, filled with color, pattern, and nothing but textures, it’s time to ground it. Grounding it means bringing in neutral hues. Having neutrals will ground the room while taking your decor to the next level. Furthermore, it’s all about making the room come to life without having too much to contrast with. Neutrals do just that, in a cohesive manner.
Whether you like to mesh colors together or even create a color scheme, having a contrasting approach is great for those that want to bring forth rich colors, that make sense to the room’s overall approach. Furthermore, creating contrast is perfect for those that don’t want to work too much color into a room yet still want to have a grand appeal.
If warming up the room is something you want to do, working with metals is the way to go. It not only, softens the edges of your decor, but it warms the room up seamlessly. It’s all about making the room feel as fresh and new as possible. It’s almost as if your decor will come to life, but with hints of cozy all at once. Metals can be added throughout the entire room.
Do not be afraid of bringing nature directly into your home. Sometimes you want a plant or two not only to bring color but also make the room more breathable. Furthermore, adding nature will enhance the room’s appeal while making it feel larger. You can almost consider your plants as the main focus of the room to really create a contrast that makes sense to the room.
