classic art adorns the walls; retro floor lamps add to the vibe.Also. remember fabric styles and opt for retro patterns like large. ornate flowers. Throw pillows with vintage designs can work as well.An alternative is to choose just a few select antiques that have the most timeless look and insert them into a more modern or transitional design.
Like many other current trends. this rule builds on our persistent desire to assimilate the great outdoors with our interior aesthetics.McCauley’s concept works like this: if nature were a framed viewpoint. the darkest colors would be found towards the ground. (Think dark grasses. stones. and mud.) Meanwhile. the medium tones of trees and plant life would be in the middle. Lightly-toned skies would round out the top of the frame.
Once you’ve decided which colors you’d like to use. it’s time to determine which role they’ll play in your design. That’s where the 10-30-60 rule comes in. With this rule. you’ll end up choosing a dominant shade. a secondary shade. and an accent color.As the name of this rule suggests. your dominant shade will cover about 60% of the room.
It’s also possible to arrange some of your old items into a shadowbox. which can then be placed on a table or on the wall. A shadowbox contains all of your antiques into one intentional vintage display that can fit in with just about any room design.Maximalism is big for 2018. and layered. global-inspired bohemian design is one of the freshest ways to execute it.
