When it comes to interior design, there really is no end to the possibilities. If you’re looking for retro-infused chic, you got it! Looking for something a bit more modern and sleek? No problem! However, more and more people are loosening the shackles when it comes to uniformed room décor, and opting to create a more bohemian space by mixing and matching different styles.
You may recoil in horror at such a thought initially. Many may not know, but things that seem out of place, can easily compliment a room without making it unsightly. For example, you could have two armchairs with a chequered black and white design, and have them both complimented with a white settee which will serve as a focal point.
The combination of bold and quiet colours can also complement each other dramatically. So if you’re opting for a couch with a busy design, it can be useful to consider a more laidback approach when it comes to the carpet.
Don’t Be Scared of Patterns
Many people are afraid to take the plunge when it comes to conforming to a pattern, often wishing to play it safe. However, when mixed with relevant neutrals, you can create a really atmospheric vibe, without the patterns being deemed a hindrance.
The same ethos can be applied to the actual decorating of the room. Bold and busy designs aren’t to be feared, but embraced. However, if you find yourself in difficulty when trying to test the water in this regard, then why not consider the services of a professional interior designer, who’s vast experience will help make a more well-informed decision.
Don’t Dismiss Furniture You Already Have
Whether we have an old rocking chair, or a couch that has seen better days, it can be easy to presume that we have to invest in new furniture. However, many people have caught on to the trend of upcycling which means a new lease of life is given to furniture that has seen better days. It’s amazing what some simple reupholstering and a lick of paint can achieve, while adding the unique touch to your home.
Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to décor ideas, but its shows just how much scope is available when not conforming with the norm, and thinking outside the box a little, thus delivering a personal touch like no other.
