MIX Styles BUT Stick to a Color Scheme
Color is the glue that holds a room’s look together. If you want to blend different design styles, choose your color scheme with the 60-30-10 rule. Are you familiar?
Basically, when applying this rule, you want your 60% color to be the primary color in your room. A typical example would be the walls or large accent pieces that act as a backdrop. Your secondary, or 30% color, might be accent chairs, lighting, and furniture. You would use this half as much as your main color. As for the last little 10%, this is where your look gets its pop. This could be found in artwork or accent pillows. In this case, it’s the red berries.
This rule can also be applied to monochromatic color schemes by using variations of the same color.
If you apply this method of color selection, then you can mix different styles and still have a calming look to the room.
Flocked greenery is magical, and it doesn’t need ornaments to be pretty. It adds tons of texture without taking over your existing color scheme. In other words, if you love neutrals, flocked greenery is the way to go for holiday decorating. If you haven’t tried a flocked tree, now is the time.
Home Hop: I want to share two versions of this year’s holiday entryway. The Inner Peace Wreath is the focal point and my goal for this holiday season. This space is a challenge. It’s too small to be a room, yet it still needs decor and a welcoming vibe.
