It’s all very well trying to keep up with the latest interior design fashions if you don’t actually like or feel comfortable with the colour choices depicted or advised.
The whole idea of a successful interior design is to reflect your style with colours you love and feel at home with. Probably the easiest way to do this is to use white, cream or a neutral tone and build your décor from these base colours.
It is also a cost effective way of being able to change the whole look of the room simply by choosing a new accent colour. Soft furnishings which include cushion covers and curtains can make a huge impact on the room and yet enable you to change them as often as you like.
With so many fabulous curtain fabrics available online and the high street the whole process of giving your rooms a new look really is simplicity itself, particularly if you opt for ready made curtains.
Ready made curtains are available in a variety of different headings which give you a different look, for example eyelet curtains give a modern and contemporary look which fall in graceful wave effect pleats, alternatively standard three inch heading provides an abundance of equally spaced pleats which give a refined and very defined style.
As we know one of this years biggest trends is the use of bold patterns. So if you usually have plain curtains changing them for bold floral pattern would inject a whole new lease of life into your rooms. Choose your patterns and colours wisely so that they coordinate with your walls and flooring, as this will mean you don’t have to completely redecorate the rooms.
Tie the theme together with cushions, rugs and throws which have either a colour which is within the pattern or uses just a part of the pattern for an on-trend look.
If you like sewing there are fabric warehouse stores online which have quite literally hundreds of different fabrics for you to choose from, along with a wide range of accessories to enable you to make your very own curtains and soft furnishings in colours and materials which you love and feel at home with.
So rather than using colours just because they the latest trend, choose colours which make you feel comfortable within your own home.
