Decorating Strategies for the Non-Committal
September 10, 2012 § Leave a comment
Every season there are new decorating fads, and you may often feel yourself drawn to one or more of them. But constantly changing furniture or large pieces to keep up with these trends can break the bank. A large, floral-patterned sofa is on point for trends this season, but it won’t feel cozy during the winter, and new trends are bound to catch your eye when the next designs are revealed. Instead, shop Cardi’s furniture stores in MA and RI for basic, neutral pieces that are high quality and will keep their value. Decorating around neutral pieces is easy and they can adhere to any trend you’re in the mood for.
Cardi’s RI and MA furniture is known for being high quality and long lasting. While many trendy pieces may be shoddily made to capitalize on fads, this basic furniture is built to last for many years. You don’t want to spend all your money on style—furniture is an investment that needs substance as well.
Fortunately, there are ways to still keep up with the trends in interior design without going over budget. Once you have invested in some lasting pieces from furniture outlets in MA and RI, you should have a solid base that you can build your dream room around. Painting walls is cheap, and with new all-in-one paint brands, you’ll only need to do one coat. Throw pillows will add trendy colors to your furniture, but they are cheap enough to be rotated according to the season or trends. Finally, consider accessories to make coffee tables or sofa tables really pop. A bell jar or large dish can hold different collections of items. For the summer, bright colors and over-the-top designs mean that you can stack neon tennis balls, arrange colorful silk flowers, or bright paperweights for a whimsical touch. In the winter, a bowlful of ornaments will fit the season.
Styles are constantly changing, and you want your home to change with the trends and with your own tastes. But if you build a neutral base of quality furniture, you’ll have a room that is easy to adapt and always comfortable.
