:: Decorate With Natural Tones ::

Standard

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.

Chairs are probably the easiest easy way to bring bamboo into the home. It’s as simple as picking them up and setting them down. Done. They also offer a ton of variety.

2. Bamboo Coffee/Side Tables

Coffee tables and side tables can be used in multiple ways throughout the home. The coffee table can be the focus and building point for the entire living room and set the tone or feel of the space.

The side table(s) can add a little touch of bamboo that perfectly compliments the space with it’s color or texture. There’s a lot you can with your bamboo table options!

3. Bamboo Shades.

Bamboo shades can be the piece that ties the space together. It extends the decor to the windows/walls and accents your coastal home decor perfectly.

Plus, they totally belong in any beach house and drive that coastal style home (pun intended).
