Room Decorating Ideas (2015)


Hi it’s Karla with Karla Dreyer Design
and welcome to Decor With Love TV interior design tips. So why does some
rooms you walk into just have that wow factor and some rooms just kind of fall
flat. I’m gonna share three tips with you to give you that wow you can implement
right away. Ok so tip number one is a focal point. You’ve probably heard this before but it really is true a room needs a focal point. So
when you walk in a focal point is that something that says wow look at that. So one of the biggest or my most favorite focal point ideas is art. So something that’s bold
something that’s fun that stands out in the room another idea of a focal point of course
if you have a fireplace that’s a lot of times could be a focal point in this
room that I’m gonna show you the homeowner has a beautiful fireplace but
instead of actually making the fireplace the focal point what they did was have a
huge piece of gold are beside it and to me when I walk in that’s what my eye
sees and so that’s what I create as the focal point. Tip number two is shape. So
when choosing your furniture and accessories think in complementary but
opposite shapes. So what do I mean by that in this example that I have the
homeowner has a really square couch so to offset that square couch they chose an
oval coffee table another way to think of that if you had a
square room in your dining room you might want to go with an oval table so
think shapes think things that complement but think things that opposite as well. And tip number 3 I’m actually giving you two tips in one here is pattern
and texture. I think when you have pattern and texture in a room it goes up
about a thousand notches and you’ve probably heard me if you’ve watched any of my videos talk about this before so what I mean by pattern texture well I’m
kinda sitting and surrounded by it here with pattern this place was quite a
neutral place so we put this chair in which has a bit of pattern in it and it
just adds a bit of character. Also to the chair we added, and you’ve probably seen this before I mean this is one of my favorite home
items is a mohair pillow and again this adds texture so think in opposites if
you’ve got silk maybe add knit if you’ve got linen add fur it really adds dimension
and like I said brings up a room so remember to create that WOW room think
a focal point think shape and think pattern and texture. I would love to hear which one of these you plan incorporating in your room
