How to Simplify Home Decor
I’m no minimalist, but there are ways to simplify one’s décor through the use of a classic color scheme.
By using blue and white with neutrals, as your grounding color, your shopping will be easier, and you can easily move your items from room to room when you need to change things up a bit.
First start with a neutral palette, choosing natural woods, neutral flooring like natural fiber rugs, or cow hide as shown above, white walls ( look here for help in choosing white paint The low-down on choosing white paint) , white flowers or greenery.
Your fabric choices for large surfaces ie. the sofa, chairs, etc. can be greys, camels, whites.
( Brown can work as long as your wood furniture is not brown, as too much brown can become stagnant and heavy. )
When shopping for accessories blue and white abounds.
For fabrics, you can mix ombres, ikats, toiles, checks, and stripes together like a pro.
Your blue and white palette joined with warm neutrals will always look fresh and clean.
Don’t forget the metals
Be sure to bring in some metal elements with your lamps, knobs, and accessories.
Whenever you shop it will always be easy to find items that work in your color scheme.
Bring in some Natural elements
A few natural elements can add warmth and that design flair of the unexpected.
Even if you don’t have a “blue and white” thumb for decorating you can simplify your choices.
By choosing a classic color scheme like blue and white for your home, everyone will ask you who your decorator is!
I am grateful for simplicity as it allows my life to flow and leaves room for what I consider most important in my life.
And that my friends, is a Cottage Necessity!
