What’s Trending Wednesday

Coastal beach house with built in bunk bedsSpace, space, space! We all want more of it. Whether it’s just an extra cabinet here or another bedroom and a yard there, a little more space never hurt anyone. Unfortunately, it’s just not that easy which means we have to make the best out of what space we do have.

A smaller, or less desired, amount of space doesn’t limit design as much as you might think. When you are forced to get creative in a small space you tend to focus on what matters. In small spaces, it’s all about function.

A room designed with function in mind will transform it into a flowing, livable space. Strip down the design and decor to the bare essentials. When you keep it simple with the essentials you can start to build up the space or keep it simple.

Check out how these designers have used decor in smaller spaces and focused on the needs, not the wants.

They allow extra light into the home, give you a nice little place to sit and can offer up some extra storage. Does your home have a window nook? If it does, are you taking advantage of it? Don’t overlook this little architectural detail! Window nooks give you plenty of space to decorate and design. You can bring life to them with just a few pillows or you can keep going with the decor and maybe even install some storage space. They also allow you carry your decor throughout the home. They can be used as a transitional area to keep your home’s style flowing from space to space. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy a nice, big window that brightens up a space and lets it breathe? We’re trying to liven up the home and natural light allows us to do just that.

Take a look at what these designers have done with window nooks. See how they style them and what accessories they use to really decorate the nook to it’s fullest! Get inspired and then start on your nook! Or start dreaming about the nook you wish you had ;).

:: Decorate With Natural Tones ::

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.
