Bring in a touch of nature. A natural element or two, like houseplants, rocks, or even a tree trunk will add warmth and charm. This could be a stand alone decorative element, a tall vase filled with graceful branches, or incorporated into a larger whole, perhaps a slate fireplace surround.
If you have got dark flooring or a low ceiling, rugs can brighten up a room by reflecting light back up. Always go lighter when you are shopping for rugs and try to stick to ones with abstract designs so dirt is not prominently displayed. If you are doing an area rug, try going larger than the centerpieces in the room to draw out the space and give the illusion that it’s bigger than it really is.
We have talked about adding visual interest to your home. One of the easiest and fun ways to do that is by getting your hands on wool upholstery, buying handknit blankets or throw pillows. Another way to add modern texture to rooms is to think curvy. Look around for tufted sofas, mid century chairs such as bubble chairs or round glass tables to add stunning geometric contrast.
Minimalism gets a bad rap primarily for one reason, colour. Modern monochromatic colour tones, while beautiful to look at, can make rooms look impersonal and bland. The popularity of black and white colours in recent years in a lot of homes make them feel like me too copycats. This is lists exciting colour pallets that shake things up. Earthy neutral colours are a fantastic alternative to black and white schemes. If, however, you prefer white walls or are living in an apartment then opt for practical furnishings and items in colourful, wild hues. This includes pillows, rugs or placemats, towels and upholstery. You can even buy vintage light stands and vases to add special flavour to white wall rooms.
