Curved furnishings bring out a bolder, relaxed, and modern style.
Whether fully circular or rounded, this sinuous shape lends a charming looking to every room. From settees to accent chairs to dressers, well-curved furniture brings elegance to any space.
Additionally, curved furnishings add softness to a room by offsetting the straight lines and creating a harmonious space.
Make a focal point with bigger well-elaborated curved furnishings like stools. For example, in small rooms, try a round ottoman instead of the usual coffee table.
Mixing and matching furniture
Furniture with different colors, themes, and styles creates a refreshing and uniquely intriguing look.
Use simple color palettes that complement each other like two accents and two neutral shades to color tie the furniture together. Using complementing colors ensures the overall spaces retain its allure.
Avoid large patterns; they make the space look erratic; instead, opt for subtle patterns to ensure cohesion with the other space décor.
However, don’t be afraid to be daring when mixing and matching unrelated furniture.
For example, pair-up Lucite chairs with an antique farmhouse table or under your ornate desk put a sleek bench.
Remember, the trick is fashioning a blend of pieces that mirrors your taste and personal style.
Artwork is a free-spirited and fun look in any room.
With hand-drawn sketches, bold geometric patterns, and playful and colorful blocks, artwork expresses our unique personality. Also, it sets a particular mood and evokes emotions.
Punchy colors like a burnished red combined with mustard or navy trends and bold patterns lend a good-humored approach to your décor.

Layered rugs offer a fabulous way of doubling your room’s depth and texture while bestowing a cozy feel and look.
You can glam up any floor, even epoxy flooring, using contrasting décor of a smaller version of rugs for a luxurious feel. Create a focal point by opting for smaller rugs instead of larger ones.

With smaller rugs, you can effortlessly move around, put backup, and fashion it to beautify your room.

Wall hangings come in various sizes, patterns, shapes, and colors. Get creative and pick a chic style that blends with your personality and style for a visually appealing look.
For example, spruce blank walls with rustic, traditional, coastal, and boho styles.
