Tips on Decorating With Prints
So you just bought your dream home, or you might just be wanting to freshen up your decor! Today we’ll be sharing some great ideas for decorating with prints.
Prints are an excellent way to showcase your unique style! Although the idea of working with prints can be a scary one, we have some simple tips to get you started.
First up is Easy Accents
Accent pieces are a great way to add pops of color and texture into any space, without the commitment. Start with a couple of throw pillows in a big botanical print, or choose a decorative platter for the table with a tribal feel. Even small accessories like a candle will add a bit of flair! This way if you change your mind or want a fresh look, it’s as easy as switching out one piece for another!
Next, select a Color Story
Color is the key element to consider when working with prints. If you want to use more than one type of print in the same space, pick a color scheme and find different prints within it. You might find a great rug in a blue and green stripe...pair it with whimsical floral pillows in the same color scheme. As long as you stick to your colors, you can pretty much mix as many prints as you dare!
And finally, big and bold
If you think you’re ready to make a bold move, pick one large area in the room to highlight. It can be an accent wall, a couch...even a comforter...just something that will make a statement. For example, we love using a vintage patterned wallpaper on one wall of a dining room, then selecting accent pieces within that color scheme to accent the rest of the room. Now if you’re still nervous, try this concept with a neutral colored print.
One of my favorite ways to add prints to a home is to collect small pieces from all of your travels. This adds a personal touch, can spark lots of dinner party conversation and really makes your home your own!
