Choose a color palette of safe neutrals…
“…but have fun with the textiles! The key is mixing materials and patterns in pillows, throws, and rugs within those palettes.” Warm up the space with metallics such as gold or brass.
Green foliage works with any color palette and style
Incorporate in fresh plants to offset the seriousness of a sitting area.
That the trend is too colorful,” or “too busy. I find that when people hear “global” in relation to home decor, they’ll often think of busy patterns and heavy textures, which is not necessarily true, especially when it comes to Threshold’s spring assortment. The collection includes pieces in vibrant colors and interesting patterns, but is still approachable and can be integrated into any space.
From the gilded details to the luxe furnishings, a glam decor scheme is hardly an aesthetic that one would pair with a boho-chic look. According to Emily, global can also be glamorous. Here’s how:
Bring in playful textiles
Soften up formal furnishings by incorporating playfully colorful pieces that will impart the area with a casual touch.
Gold is the metallic of choice
If there’s one thing we’ve learned here, it’s that a gold-finish or metallic accent can really go the distance, regardless of the decorative scheme. In this particular case, it keeps the look feeling glam.
Utilize Hanging Planters
Not only do these eye-catching displays create a soft and sculptural element, they also help divert the line of vision to a higher scope.
Contrast The Refined Finishes
Filter in handmade pottery or whimsical, carved animals to give an area (or shelf!) a more playful vibe.
Opt for pieces that have that bohemian look and feel, but in a neutral color palette. I love this
Dining rooms can often, ironically, end up feeling stuffy and uninviting, especially when working with a formal setting. Here’s what Emily suggests for avoiding this common dilemma:
Mix up your seating
Add unexpected seating options into the mix to offset the formality of a dining room set. Here, wing chairs come decked with globally-inspired textures that instill a dynamically cozy detail. The formal dining chairs emulate the traditional scheme while the matching bench makes things more inviting.
Add bold prints and color with art
Think of wall art as a low-committal method to experimenting with color and pattern. Here, opting for just two similar pieces keeps things formal.
Make a statement with the centerpiece
Bring in tabletop accessories in trendy colors that will pop against the finish of the table while implementing an organic vibe.
Utilize gold decorative elements to add in depth and help reflect light throughout the space. And don’t forget, indoor plants and bold flowers are inexpensive ways to add big life to any space!
