Tuesday Tips

Dining room decorated with warm, natural tonesHave you enter a space and instantly felt comfortable? Felt at home? Do you ever wonder how a designer does that? Well, to be honest, there’s not just one single way to accomplish that feeling. There are actually many different ways. But let’s narrow down and focus in on one way you can accomplish this feeling in your home. If you haven’t guessed by the title of this post, “Decorate With Natural Tones”, then boy do we have surprise for you!

That’s right! Use natural tones to create a feeling of warm and cozy comfort. Warm tones create a sense of peace and familiarity. They welcome you with open arms and bring joy. Think about golden hour and how the sunset creates a tone of magical light. On the other side, blue tones are regarded as cold and sometimes lifeless. Think sterile, crime show morgue and you can feel how cold and empty the space is. These quick examples show how powerful tones can be in design. They can hit you subconsciously and transform your mood without you even realizing.

Once you realize that the tones throughout your home play a very powerful role, you can use them to decorate. Natural and neutral tones can help create a relaxed feeling and look in the home. It puts you at ease and is easy on the eyes, unlike a bright and colorful home that can bombard your visual sense (no offense to overly colorful homes, we applaud your bold decor). That’s not to say that colors don’t play a role because they can certain play a part in the show. Just apply subtly throughout and use the idea of less is more.

If you want a quick and easy visual reference to what we are talking about, look no further. We’ve grabbed a couple beautifully designed spaces that use natural and neutral tones that evoke the warm sense of welcome. Take a look, catch a feel and let it help transform your design abilities.

:: Rustic Wooden Ladders ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

Bright coastal living room with plenty of ocean inspired decorA wooden ladder is a great design piece and an easy way to add rustic decor to your home. They’re extremely versatile and bring a great deal of eye pleasing interest to any space. How does a wooden ladder do this? By taking advantage of the vertical space.

They fill the room and give your eye something to follow through the space. This is as easy as leaning the wooden ladder up against the wall. Now if you want to take it a step further, you can add another layer of decor to continue building dynamic design. Decorate the ladder with throws or even hang art from them, the options can be as creative as you are (or, realistically, what you find on Pinterest). If you’re handy enough you can even convert a wooden ladder into a makeshift shelf. Just be careful what you choose to display, we can’t imagine those will be the sturdiest of shelves!

Take a look at what these designers have done and how they have decorated these spaces with wooden ladders. Plus let’s not forget, they’re a great excuse to go antique hunting. Oops, did we just plant that seed into your mind? Happy hunting!
