Decorating Risks Everyone Should Take at Least Once

 

If your attitude towards decorating involves playing it safe, it’s time to change your mindset and try something new. Express your personality in your home by taking a few risks. After all, your home is the one place where you have complete control and only have yourself to please! So give your place a little pizzazz and take one (or more) of these decorating risks. Don’t worry – they’re really not that risky!

Paint Trim and Doors a Color Other Than White

White has always been the default color for trim and doors, and people often do it without question. But if you want to add an unexpected pop, try painting them a different color. If you want it to look elegant and sophisticated opt for a glossy black. But don’t be afraid to try a different color if it suits you. Just make sure it works with the wall color.

Purchase a Bright Sofa

Decorating wisdom says to purchase a neutral sofa and dress it up with colorful pillows. And yes, that is definitely the safer option as sofas are fairly expensive and you want them to be as versatile as possible.
But if you want to make a statement a neutral sofa ain’t gonna do it. Don’t be afraid to take a risk on something bright and colorful.

Decorate a Unique Accent Wall

The days of the feature wall painted in a single color different than the rest of the room are pretty much over, but that doesn’t mean that accent walls are a thing of the past. To create a focal wall that is still on trend try creating one with a graphic pattern. This can be done with paint, wallpaper or even washi tape. Currently horizontal stripes and chevron patterns are popular, but don’t be afraid to try something different.

Use Mismatched Furniture

Just say no to furniture sets! No to living room sets; no to dining room sets; and no to bedroom sets! Matching sets might feel like a safe option but it’s far more exciting to use mismatched furniture that is complementary. Trust your own instincts – if you fill a room with items you really like chances are good that they will look good together.

Include Lots of Prints

Decorating with prints can be scary to a lot of people because when you use a lot of them they can look very busy.  But once you learn how to mix patterns like a pro you’ll wonder why you ever shied away form them. Prints add life to a room like nothing else so choose the ones you like and go crazy with them. It’s definitely a decorating risk worth taking.

Decorate the Ceiling

People tend to ignore the ceiling and that can be a big mistake. There are tons of wonderful decorating opportunities including paint and stencils as well as architectural elements such as molding, medallions and more. Just make sure that any time you paint or decorate a ceiling you take the proper safety precautions so that you don't get hurt.

Lay Down a Colorful Rug

Don’t ignore what’s underfoot. A colorful rug can set the tone for the entire room, so do away with neutrals and go for something bright and colorful. If you go with area rugs rather than carpet (which is usually best in any room) you have the flexibility to move them around to different rooms if you want a change.
