Designing a welcoming spot for you and your guests to come together is essential when you are considering the right components of your home’s decor. Sometimes it can be hard to decide how you want to blend those looks together, though, which is why we have worked tirelessly to create a list of 7 decor designs that you’re bound to copy.
1. Typically Laid Back
White walls, soft grey upholstery and wooden furniture pieces, create a relaxed and welcoming look. Choose a classic sofa as the centrepiece, then introduce pattern with a mix-and-match collection of patterned cushions and a stand-out striped rug.
2. Rose and Cosy
Accompany pale wood and shades of red to create a warm and inviting aesthetic. Choose a couch or chair with prominent patterns and mix artwork or even placemats to accentuate the red features of your home. Don’t veer too far from your feature colour as this will only take away from the decor- unless you’re a pro! The design does not have to be sectioned to the only room too- notice how the curtains in the bedroom are similar to the couch – this what happens when you let your designs work for you.
3. Treasure Island Escape
Create a personal treasure island with vintage chests you can find from the local op shops: the more patterns, the merrier. There’s no right and wrong for this look- just put yourself in the mindset of a swashbuckling pirate who views any furniture as treasure. Rember to always compliment the features of the room- see how the blue couch frame promotes the patterned flooring.
4. Modern Country Theme
The only must-have for this look is, of course, a cow print rug, but a white rug with black spots will suffice. A Dark brown couch with light cushions compliments this modern country look really well. If you have dark feature walls, a light cream couch may be a better alternative. If you own a fireplace, an animal hide rug adds cosy cabin appeal to any room- and it adds to the warmth!
5. Simple Scandinavian Decor
The Scandinavian decor trend has lasted for a few years now, and with good reason. This simple look may not look like much, but that is the beauty of it. The royal blue couch and fur seated stand-alone chair create a robust and versatile decor. Substitute The pineapple cushions for any pattern that feels like you. A common mistake is to add too many contrasting pieces to a room, which creates confusion.
6. Simple Blue Theme
Blue and white is a classic colour combination that’s perfect for a nautical scheme. Pick your shade of blue and stick to it. What works about this look is it the complimentary cream rug and chair. Simple is best when you’re a novice trying to keep to a theme, but there is wiggle room for creative flair when accompanying patterned cushion, trinkets and accessories.
7. Earth-Green Theme
For a natural pop of colour and texture for your home decor, fusing potplants within a simple design can be all you need. Notice the grey couch with small wooden accents to match the wood floor and centrepiece chair furniture. Pale wooden furniture also helps to keep the room looking bright and airy. Soft grey tones and crisp white details bounce light around. Whether you use actual plants or fake ones, this is sure to liven up your home (though real plants have the added feature of enticing your other senses when using aromatic plants.)
8. Grey and White Living
Depending on your budget, you can make the white and grey decor look work. Everything in the image may be simple, but the high-end quality of the furniture gives this uniform look a lot more pop.
9. The Homie Look
The wicker elements create elements of versatility and texture, mixed with hanging plants and pot-plants to finish of the cosy appeal. The red rug is cherry on the icing and is emphasised much more because of the plainness of the room.
10. Colour Coding
Pick up to four colours to make up select pieces of furniture (typically pillow, rug, accessories to the home etc.). Utilise patterns and geometric rugs to liven up the setting. Compliment the select pieces with some artwork like the image to get that extra pop.
