Most of us are partial to subdued neutrals or color blocking in our home décor. These shades have been trending for a while. However, neutral shades and block colors can get boring over time. If you feel the itch to change your décor from a staid and predictable design to a vibrant and pleasing décor, this concept is right up your alley.
So, how do you add a fun element to your décor? Well, patterns may just do the trick. They not only tie your color scheme together but define the theme and style of your home décor. So, how does this design concept work? Read on to find out.
There is no arguing that patterns add an exciting element to your décor. However, it’s easy to go overboard with this theme. While nothing is more charming than a patterned sofa, you don’t want to overdo it. Stick with a single patterned piece to blend in with like-colored sofas and chairs for maximum effect. And hey, make sure to use plain colored cushions on the patterned sofa.
Patterns for the Accent Wall
Your accent wall need not be a splash of textured dark tones. This style is so predictable it can get boring after a while. So, amp your style quotient with this amazing accent wall idea. You can use wallpaper to do the trick. If you are handy with a brush, you can paint a unique dotted pattern on the wall. How difficult can it be to splatter dots on your wall?
Go the Mural Way
Murals look gorgeous and make your décor stand out. Try going bold with flower accents, or go for subdued scenic themes in neutral tones. If these ideas seem too radical, you can tone down the pattern to suit your needs. There are many choices in the market. You are sure to find something that suits your taste.
Or you can use your mural theme on a smaller area to diffuse its intensity.
A Patterned Backsplash
We are familiar with staid kitchen tiles in neutral shades to match the wooden or neutral-toned cabinets. These done-to-death themes could do with some pep with a patterned backsplash. Moroccan design tiles are to die for and a great way to breathe life into your décor. If this is too much for your taste, geometric patterns also work.
Wallpapers come in various designs, be they floral, striped, or geometric. The choices can leave you reeling with indecision. But, if you want to have your cake and eat it too, you can straddle the staid and the patterned with subdued geometric patterns. Or how about a polka-dot effect? It’s in trend!
A Bit of Print on the Curtains
Make your statement with a soft print or bold stripes. Patterned curtains are the way to go. However, balance is the key. Bold curtains and loud sofa prints can spell disaster. So, if you have one, avoid the other. Your cushions will tie this gorgeous look together.
Floral Cushions Are Charming
One of the easiest ways to change the décor of your room is by changing your throw cushions. These versatile cushions work like a magic wand. All you need to do is go to the store and get some pillows in a different color scheme and voila! You have new décor. To this fine collection of cushions, add a few prints to elevate the décor.
Much like the cushions, a throw rug can do wonders for your décor. This is the easiest way to add the print element to your désign. For a traditional or old-world look, you can go for Persian rugs. For a contemporary vibe, bold geometrics are the best. However, be sure your sofa doesn’t have a busy pattern, or it’s sure to clash with the rug.
Prints are utterly charming and can change the look of your room. However, for a layperson, getting your head around prints and patterns on the sofas, the walls, and the curtains can not only get overwhelming but can also spell disaster if not balanced.
