When couples or families move in together, often a difficult task can be merging two different decorating styles. But never fear—we have some tips that can help you achieve the perfect eclectic look. Talk to a Windows, Walls & More consultant here in West Bloomfield. We’ll be happy to help!
Use Common Colors
A common color can pull together two different styles. One way to achieve it is through adding paint to a wall—a quick coat can help you bring pieces together. And it doesn’t have to be just one common color—you can add visual interest with a combo. Or use window treatment color to tie it all together. Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades are available in 39 different fabrics with a total of 424 colorways, as well as numerous textures to choose from, which can help blend design styles.
The 80/20 Rule
A general rule of thumb when combining styles is the 80/20 rule. Your main style—for example, traditional—would make up 80% of your home décor. Think large pieces of furniture that are either hard to give up or hard to replace. The 20% is the style you want to introduce, including that pop of color, texture, pattern, and more. Be sure to split up your design styles and distribute them evenly throughout the space.
Change It All Up
If your design style is traditional (comfortable and familiar), you might want to prevent your overall look from being too stuffy and old-fashioned. If that’s the case, add something modern, like bright throw pillows and new modern window treatments. Pirouette® Window Shadings by Hunter Douglas are perfect in bridging the gap between traditional and modern styles.
