How to Mix'N'Match to Meet Your Dream ThemeInterior Design & Decor
3 minutes read
Shabby chic or modern minimalist, sometimes our dream theme doesn't fall under any design category. Some love the quiet sophistication of an all-white look, but they might want a touch of wild bohemian eclecticism in their living space at the same time.
How do you seamlessly mix'n'match the different things you love without turning your home into an odd mishmash of themes? We give you 3 simple mix'n'match tips for customising and achieving the look you've always wanted – through the simple use of colours, shapes, and elements.
Colours are essential in any space. They go a long way in creating the right mood, while showcasing your personality. Instead of coordinating your furniture colour with the furnishings, we say give it a little spin and mix and match as you please!
Unsure of where to start? Simply choose a few of your favourite colours. Then, vary them through the different furnishings in, for example, the living room. You could choose to match the colour of your sofa to your curtains, and the throw cushions to the shade on the wall. For a well-integrated mix of colours, remember to opt for a colour palette with similar hues!
Never underestimate the importance of shapes as you plan for your home. The best way to pull your desired look togther is to utilise common shapes or patterns in your furniture, wallpaper design and even textiles. It's straightforward and really easy!
If you're a fan of curved edges, pick pieces with similar curved edges. If you love clean straight lines, veer towards square or rectangular forms. By introducing common patterns and forms into your decor, you will be able to create a harmonious display that is bold, and truly represents your style.
THE FINISHING TOUCH
In order to establish the perfect ambience in your dream home, try utilising the right type and mix of elements.
Do you prefer a more understated ambience, or something luxurious and elegant? For a back-to-basics feel, use raw elements like wood, potted plants, and faux fur rugs. For a more luxurious vibe, play with rich textures like velvet, silk, and even fixtures gilded in gold. By exploring, experimenting and understanding the different elements and the ambience that they evoke, you can mix'n'match to create the theme you desire effortlessly.
Colours, shapes, and elements – meeting your dream theme is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Let us know if you've tried any of these tips and how they've worked for you. If you have other great suggestions, comment below and let us in on your secret!
