3 Tips to Incorporate Your Culture In Your Home
1)One of the simplest ways to ensure success is to begin with an inspiration piece. A�An inspiration serves as a jumping off point for the entire design and often can make selecting a color scheme so much easier. A�Art, wall dA�cor, fabrics and other textiles can be just what you need to get started. A�Use the inspiration piece to create a color scheme for your project and ensure that what you select always ties back to it. A�
2)To keep the application from feeling dated, look for ways to add a touch of modern. A�Perhaps ita��s in the color scheme or in how you translate the application of a typically traditional element. A�For example, if youa��re going for southern, florals may likely be a go-to. A�Choosing large scale floral patterns or ones with a bold modern color scheme (in fabrics, wallpaper, bedding, etc.) adds a modern twist to a southern classic.
3)Dona��t overdo it. A�a�?Themeda�? spaces can get cheesy pretty quickly. A�Look for ways to subtly incorporate your theme. A�If you have a bold piece that youa��d like to use, play it up by letting it take center stage. A�We did this with the very large African mask hung as wall art. A�Small art pieces, decorative accessories, books and artifacts can be sprinkled throughout the space but be sure to use some restraint. A�Remember, not every single addition to the space should play to the theme.
