So, what should you consider while decorating your home for 2016?
If there is one thing that’s in right now, it’s neutral tones. Rich grey, tan, chocolate brown and white are popping up all over the place in interior design as a starting point for big-ticket items like sofas, wall paint and carpets. Greys are especially in due to the wide range of hues from light silver to charcoal and all the warm and cool tones in between.
Keeping things simple for your main color scheme is a perfect starting point. This year, keep those neutral tones, but try adding a pop of contrasting color to the room with brilliant accent pieces. Adding bright decorative pillows, table runners and drapes to a neutral color palate adds a little something extra and gives the perfect amount of personality to your living space.
For a more in-depth reason behind your chosen color scheme, check out HGTV’s psychology of color in interior design. The colors in our homes have a big impact on our emotions and overall moods. Keep this in mind while picking the colors that shape your life.
Natural Tones and Fabrics
Did someone say animal prints? Natural tones are hot right now, and we have a wide variety of natural tones for you to choose from. Hide pillows and animal prints are perfect for bringing out your wild side and providing a natural texture to your space. The color green evokes thoughts of the outdoors and gives a very natural feel to your living areas.
While we’re on the subject of nature, natural fabrics are also hot right now. Linen, wool and cotton are ideal for designers looking to bring a little bit of nature into the home.
When it comes to fabric, textures such as crewels, cut velvets, and embroidered are in. Try mixing and matching contrasting textures to get just the look you want and add a dramatic feel to your home. Sleek leather couches look great with a coarse-textured pillow or a chunky-knit throw. If your sofa has a little more depth in the fabric, contrast with a silky smooth pillow to complete the look. Shop our selection of ready to go pillows and throws to complete the look.
With a variety of textures to choose from and even more to order in, our design professionals can help pair you with the ideal textures to fit your home and lifestyle needs.
Fabric Wall Art
If there’s an easy way to add a nice pop of color to any room, it’s with fabric wall art. This trend is big right now and it’s a great way to use interesting fabric. You may be asking yourself what exactly fabric wall art is, but never fear, we have a perfect example hanging in our store.
Remember what we said before about natural being in? Let in the natural light and give a soft touch to any room with sheer drapes. For rooms with large windows, drapery can make or break your look, since the window is the largest accent of the room. Sheer fabrics come in a variety of patterns, textures and colors, making it easy to add a bit of elegance. Plus, they pair perfectly with those neutral tones we were talking about earlier.
For an extra touch, add drama with a heavier drape out of a cozy chenille or luxurious velvet to your sheer look so you can add a bit of flexibility and accessorize your lighting preferences. Since we’re talking about accessorizing your windows, it’s a good time to mention that we are the only stock location for Antique Drapery Rod Co. in the state of Oklahoma. When you’re planning for drapery, don’t forget about the hardware!
