Many people furnish their homes with matching pieces for a coordinated look, but decorators know that using too many similar styles can make the room feel impersonal and, well, boring. After you choose your matching sofa and chair for the living room or bedroom set in the bedroom, it’s time to think outside the box and add interesting pieces that will give your home pizzazz.
Here are some tips for giving your home a finishing touch.
A Splash of Color
Today’s trending neutrals are calming and cool, whether you choose white and gray or a light beige color palette. But you may feel that something is missing, even though the decor matches. By adding a splash of color you can inject your personality and add interest to your home.
An Area Rug
After you add some color to your neutral decor, a good way to tie it all together is to add an area rug. Not only will the area rug combine all the colors in the room, but you can use it to define seating spaces and zones in a larger space like a great room.
High Style Accents
Bringing in a stylish piece of accent furniture is an easy and highly effective way to add personality to an otherwise over-coordinated room. Choose an interesting end table or cocktail table for the living room, or a gorgeous armoire for the bedroom. A china cabinet can make your dining room stand out if you have the space for it.
A Different Furniture Style
Bring in a contrasting style to really spice things up. If you have a contemporary home, find a beautiful chair with curves and a rich wood frame. If you have traditional furnishing, try adding a sleek contemporary piece for interest.
An Eye-Catching Focal Point
Some people follow the adage “go big or go home”. A dramatic focal point like an electric fireplace or a free-standing bar can go a long way in creating striking home decor. Choose a stunning console that can add style and provide storage space to keep your room clutter free.
The right lighting can create high visual impact and contribute to the mood of the room. Add to the ambient or general lighting with attractive chandeliers and consider accent lighting like wall sconces for drama. Accent lighting can be used to highlight a favorite work of art or other wall art displays.
Once you have the basics, adding accessories like decorative items, throw pillows, blankets and lamps can really bring life to your home.
