Muted Colors

sdfMuted colors:

Muted colors are those which lack vibrancy or saturation. They tend to lean toward the more subdued end of the spectrum, while still creating a chic look with their subtlety. It seems that the muted colors of 2017 are mellow, but with a little more pigment than the pastel-looking hues that were in last year. In fact, the colors are perhaps more dusky in nature which emits a rich and warm feel to a space. Let’s take a look at how some of these serene and soothing colors can still manage to warm up a room.

Warm neutrals:

People have a tendency of finding new ways to bring elements from the outside into their homes with a sense of style. There is something about combining earthy colors into a space that is not only reminiscent of nature, but that creates a calm and collected atmosphere. A perfect example of these colors is taupe and a muted earthy green. Especially taupe or similar hues would be a great choice for upholstery on bedssofaschairs and even rugs! It’s a color that will remain timeless, and therefore would be a great investment when it comes to furniture.

Dusky blues:

Among the other popular muted colors this year is dusky blue and in a variety of hues. It is slightly muted and quite sophisticated and reminiscent of the beach, but without falling into a kitschy category. Although this shade of blue is far from being bold, it would still be wise to use to accessorize your home. Opt for bedding,decorative pillowsthrowsottomans, etc. These pieces entail a much smaller investment.

swerfeGray:

Not just on the runway, but in home décor, shades of gray are the getting the attention they deserve. Grays in particular create a refined look in the home. Despite being a neutral tone, it is quite rich. Just like earthy tones, gray is equally a good choice for furniture pieces that you intend to keep for years to come. However, it has more of a modern feel to it.

Bedroom Furniture – Make Your Bedroom A Sanctuary

pic1

As a whole, most of us tend to focus our decorative ideas on things like living rooms, dens, basements, dining rooms, etc. While these are all important, and should reflect your personality and style, it’s easy to ignore the bedroom. We don’t often consider our bedrooms to be much more than a place to sleep, lounge, etc. But those two actions alone should make you want to turn your bedroom into the ultimate escape of relaxation and comfort. Thankfully, something as simple as your bedroom furniture can do just that.

Start out by listing off a few things that first come to your mind when you think about a personal sanctuary. This will be different for everyone – after all, your bedroom should be a reflection of you, not someone else. Start with the wall color, the decor, and then move onto bigger items like the beddressers, side tables, etc.

The focal point of every bedroom is, of course, the bed. It’s okay to make your bed an investment, and make it absolutely abundant. If it’s going to be the main focus of the room, it should be something luxurious.

Your furniture is truly the foundation of your bedroom. Once you have the details in place for the overall theme, and you have the bed you want, your furniture should accent it. Again, bedroom furniture should be an investment. With so many options, grains, woods, and colors to choose from, it’s an investment that can be incredibly personal. The bottom line? Don’t be afraid to ‘go big’ when it comes to your bedroom. You may spend most of your time just lounging around there, but making it feel like a special occasion each time you get into bed can make a world of difference, and add a lot of value to that room of your home.
