We believe that artwork should inspire.
Especially the artwork in your home since it’s where you spend a lot of your time. It’s where you and your loved ones create lifelong memories – where milk is spilled, tears are wiped, and family dinner traditions are created.
This is a 3 part series of blog posts and we will be posting helpful hints over the next few weeks as Spring gets into full bloom. Make sure to tag us in your home décor photos on Instagram for a chance to be featured!
Part 1 - How do I start pulling decor together for a room?
Sigrid: When I begin a home decor project, there are two things that I anchor the room around: color and tone.
Color: The color palette of a room is fundamental to creating harmony and a cohesive space. It should be inviting and easily translated by the viewer as warm and welcoming. As you select décor, ensure that your personality shines through as you curate pieces.
Here are two color palette examples for you to consider:
1. If you would want an airy and calm room, consider combining light neutrals or leveraging the same color in different shades.
2. If you would like to create a warm space, consider combining coral and pink blush tones.
Tone: Once you have defined your color, decide on the tone you would like to convey. Consider combining cooler tones such as blues for your bathroom to remind you of a fantastic trip you made to Maine last summer or perhaps you would prefer warmer tones in a dining room to represent your time in lovely Northern Italy.
Once you identify which color palette you would like as well as the tone, selecting the rest of your decor will fall into place.
Pro Tip: If you are decorating your entire home, consider focusing on rooms one at a time so that you can play with colors and decor styles on a room-to-room basis. This process can be overwhelming so by breaking an entire home into rooms, it can make the project feel more manageable.
