“I want you to get it right, so I have identified 5 things that I frequently see that really trip people up when they are designing a space”
1. LACK OF TEXTURE
A lack of texture make your room feel like it’s falling flat and it’s uninteresting. The easiest ways to get texture back into your space:
- More Accessories
2. TOO MANY FRAMES
You want to brake up your art work and not have everything framed all on the same wall. Unless you have planned out a wall with the same frames and made it a statement wall like the picture above.
3. A MATCHY MATCHY COLOR SCHEME!
So here is a rule of thumb: Use a NEUTRAL color, a MAIN color, 2 SUB colors and then throw in a PUNCH of color for the unexpired!
For example: Let’s say that you are using a soft gray as your Neutral (on the walls), then you Main Color is Navy (in a couch or comforter on your bed), your 2 Sub colors are yellow, light blue (in a wallpaper or in curtains) and your Pop of color is a red (which could be a throw or pillows).
4. NOT FINISHING YOUR SPACE
- Lack of accessories and styling
- Shelves left empty
- Lack of finishes, kinda like a new house with no landscaping
You need to make sure you are filling in the available space so your home doesn’t look empty. You want it to feel lived in and a place you can relax and see the things you love around you.
5. LACK OF WINDOW TREATMENTS
Here is why every space needs them, bar none. It softens the space, it makes the space look polished and professional and lastly it makes your space look FINISHED!
These are the 5 things you don’t want to miss when you are finishing off your space. If you are still wanting some more inspiration on how to start a project, I have my Design DNA course right now for ONLY $17. It can show you how to identify what your design style is. Making each one of the steps above so much easier when starting and finishing your project/space.
As always have a colorful week and feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the above.
