When it time to design a room, we often hear our customers say “I don’t know where to start”. I love this question, because here at Seasons we love helping customers create a room that reflects their own personal style that is both unique and inviting. Here are 3 easy steps:
Find Your Inspiration
You often have a color palette or design style that you gravitate towards. Your inspiration can be a patterned fabric, rug, artwork or just a color combination (ex. blue & white). Once you settle on something you love, you can build from there.
Choose Your Furniture Pieces and Rug
Start with the key furniture pieces – sofa and chairs. They will set the feel for how you want the room to look, casual or formal. Add your rug, cocktail table, ottoman and accent tables. Always measure the space and create a floor plan to make sure the pieces are the right size for the room. You should be able to move comfortably around each piece. For a sofa, we prefer to use a solid color fabric because it will not become ‘outdated’ as quickly as patterned fabrics. For chairs, try fabrics with texture or a subtle pattern.
Add Accents for Personality
Lamps, accents pillows and decorative accessories add your personal style to the room. Pillows can be easily changed out from time to time to give a fresh new look to your sofa and chairs. Artwork is the jewel of any space. Add a collection of books that reflect your interests, use candles for your signature scent, and include a throw blanket for those chilly nights.
