On a recent walk I happened to look over towards the bay and noticed the snow-capped mountains in the distance. I love the layers of colors in this photo: the blue of the water, green trees, and white mountains. You can bring a similar color trio into your space as well! Try adding blue, green, and white throw pillows to a couch or bed to update the look. The pillows can be plain, or you can go bold with a large geometric pattern. We often want to start fresh for the new year, but a complete overhaul of your decor can be costly. By using a few throw pillows to update your look, you can easily, and affordably, update your space.
When you think of flooring, several things usually come to mind. While most people immediately think of the type of material used, what about patterns? Pictured above is a marble floor featuring a classic geometric pattern. Geometric patterns are a classic design that can complement any space. While most of us can’t afford marble floors, there is a way to bring this classic look into your space. Similar looks can be created by using rugs that feature a similar pattern or, if you’re feeling creative, you can buy a plain rug and use cut-outs to paint out the pattern of your choice. The second option is the best way to really let your inner creativity shine. No matter how you decide to go about it, you can easily bring the geometric look into your space in a way that’s uniquely you!
Many would argue that one of the hardest places to decorate is a bathroom. Most are small, windowless, and seem to offer little in the way of decorating. However, a great piece of inspiration can be your very own shower curtain! My shower curtain (right) is a great example. It features butterflies in multiple colors along with various types of foliage. To begin your design project, start by taking pictures of each individual element in the curtain, such as each butterfly and sections of the foliage. Once you’re done, frame each photo and hang them on the wall(s). You can display all the photos at once, or swap them out every few months to give the bathroom a fresh look. This same project would also work for those of you with geometric patterned shower curtains. Remember, it’s often what’s around you that can provide the best inspiration for your space!
