To create the perfect match at home, it is important to pay attention to everyday styling. Even before you start planning the interiors, it is wise to not underplay this aspect. Since the mood is just right for you to unleash your personal creativity, routine styling will lend a bigger and wider palette to experiment.
Draw those curtains with love: The colour or material of your drapes will reflect the mood at home. Dark window drapes are not great for the dull winter as they make one mentally lethargic. Use medium shades like soft blues or reds, or monochrome patterns of black and white to add glory and comfort.
Bed cover it with calm: Bed covers are aplenty in the market. The trick is to choose a design that rejuvenates the senses and relaxes you. The bed is a place where you find solace at the end of a hard day. You don’t need a colour or style which you personally dislike. Keep it calm.
Cusion calling: Adding a volley of pillows and cushions can brighten up your space. From exquisite handcrafted cushions to handloom and painted ones, they bring a sense of whimsicality into your home.
Go with fabric: Cloth is always better than any new age fabric as it lends warmth to a space. If cotton bed sheets are not decorative enough, try a mix and match of silk or jute with it. Using natural materials, colours, and adding a natural element like a street or beach scene will add character.
Rug it right: Use rugs as a style quotient, and it’s hygienic too. It means ensure they are easily washable, and easy to maintain.
