Some people have an affinity for mid century design. They may like the sleek, contemporary styling of modern furniture and décor. Some will have inherited some good pieces from grandparents or parents like a Heywood Wakefield dining room set or some nice Danish modern pieces in teakwood. Getting new pieces that can coexist peacefully with these items is fairly easy to do. Most contemporary furnishing stores have a wide range of items that can work with older pieces. If you need additional decorator items such as Pyrex bowls or California pottery in interesting boomerang shapes, Internet auctions can be a good resource.
While some think that the country look may have peaked in the 1980’s, there are still plenty of people that like the look but want to put a modern spin on it. Using something like a lace runner for a valance in the bathroom can give a country vibe to the room with out getting too overpowering. People may want to use tin ceiling tiles as art work on the walls or place a farm-related item such as a tobacco basket as a focal point. Today’s modern country is more about using major pieces to anchor the room instead of the many small details used to create the look in the past.
Many people love the traditional furnishings look here. Toile is one way to tie different rooms together. The same pattern but in different colors can make a visual impact while showing a relationship in the design. People also like tapestry fabrics in colors like deep greens and reds. Either of these fabrics can be used for pillows, valances or table runners to add some interest but not take over the room. These items are all easy to sew even for novices.
Never underestimate the power of artwork to give a home personality. While it is possible to find many different types of art in department stores, consignment stores or home furnishing stores, some of the best options can be a high school or college art show. Additionally some art schools in the area have student shows at different times of the year. This is often a good way to get one of kind items of all kinds ranging from pottery to paintings. Many people will use a painting they love to set the color palette for the rest of the home.
