Ok so you’ve decided on your theme. You love the (insert latest trend) look and you’re raring to go. You may have even chosen your colour scheme and even picked your paint (though don’t be hasty on that one, read on to find out why). But where next? How do we get from great idea to beautiful space that you’re ready to show to all and sundry?
When it comes to creating a cohesive look the devil is all in the details. Those details come in the form of carefully chosen accessories. Accessories come in all shapes and sizes so at this point things can get a little tricky. So here are a few ways you can accessorise to create the look you’ve been dreaming of.
The best way to create cohesion is to carry on colours throughout your theme. If you want a coastal look, pick blue and white accessories, if you prefer Amala Living go for items with warm colour from the same side of the wheel.
Play with pattern
If you’re going for paint on the walls it can leave a room looking pretty plain. Accessories are a great way to experiment with different patterns. You can choose a single feature wall to go crazy with Mr Fox Living or you can be subtler with a few Passaro Living in various funky designs.
Start at your feet
Another blank canvas where your accessories can shine is your floor. Adding a Spike Living that ties into your colour scheme can pull everything together perfectly.
Give your room some balance by using your accessories symmetrically. Place the same Lace Bedroom either side of a main feature to give the look of poise and equilibrium.
Group Berry Tree Living together in different shapes and sizes for an easy way to create interest. You can go for different vase height, differently shaped pictures or different sized cushions.
Whatever you decide, have fun, experiment with accessories. Your dream theme will soon come together and accessories are an inexpensive way to make it happen.
