When it comes to home decor, there are a few steps to ensuring your home stays stylish while also being functional.
One of the best ways to do this is to make your “canvas” (aka your walls) a neutral shade, which allows for bold design pieces as accents.
Choosing a wall color that is in the realm of white, grey, beige or something neutral allows you to make much bolder choices when it comes to accessories and trendier pieces!
If you’re a fan of even more fun and colorful pieces, choosing neutral large furniture, such as couches, tables or bedroom furniture, allows you so much creativity.
With a light gray couch for instance, you can toss a bright pink throw and some vibrant pillows on it during summer, and then update with cooler tones for winter. With bedroom furniture that is indistinct, you can change accents as you please; from rustic to chic and from fuzzy to knit.
Keeping up with the pantone colors is hard enough, trying to change your entire design when a new design trend comes around is not only expensive but also crazy hard to keep up with.
For example, since I started writing this post, faux fur is totally out.
Just kidding, but making sure that you can keep up with interior design ebb and flow without breaking the bank is easy and fun.
Today we’re concentrating on bold, geometric pieces to give your living room a modern, yet retro vibe, all from Urban Outfitters and all priced below $150!
