It’s time to ditch the college dorm room decor and mismatched wall art, and level up your home’s interior design style. Olympus Auburn Lakes is here to show you exactly how to do just that. Keep reading to get inspired.
1. Know Your Interior Design Style
Whether you’re an interior design aficionado or completely clueless when it comes to your style preferences, this awesome quiz from HGTV is a fun way to find a good starting point. From there, search online using the terms from the results of your quiz (i.e. boho-minimalist, midcentury modern, etc.) to see which elements you’re drawn to and what styles, decor, accessories, or colors you’d like to include in your space.
2. Stick With Similar Furniture & Art Styles
Unless your interior design style is eclectic-bohemian, you probably want to avoid having a tufted velvet sofa mixed in with a rattan and macrame hanging armchair. Whether you go with a matchy-matchy set or not, it’s best to keep your furniture similar in form, color, or even texture – whether your design style is mod, coastal, or cottage farmhouse. The same goes for lighting fixtures, wall art, and tables. You can really play with color, texture, shapes, and styles in the rest of your home with the right decor pieces.
3. Go for One Main Accent Color
Whatever your preferred design style is, it helps to shoot for a main accent color in order to achieve a cohesive feel throughout your home. But that doesn’t mean it has to be monochromatic and boring. Try a unique or bold color, like terra cotta, mustard, lavender, or burnt orange.
4. Clear the Clutter
A messy apartment home is a surefire way to make your home feel disjointed. Keep surfaces clean and clutter free, fold and put away laundry, and neatly place pillows or throw blankets in their rightful space.
