Choosing furniture and sticking to a color scheme can be somewhat intuitive when it comes to decorating. But after that, things can get a little hairy. One of our favorite designers, Kim teaches us how to style your home with layers.
Kim is an interior designer and blogger at Design Thoughts who lives in Nashville with her husband and son. She is a DIY fiend who’s not afraid to pull out the paintbrush for an off-the-cuff accent wall or a completely unique work of art to transform a space. Find out more reasons we love Kim.
How To Style Surfaces By Layering
See the difference styling can make!
Kim’s Top Tips for Accessorizing Your Home:
1.Create a layered look by grouping pieces with different heights and sizes.
2. Group similar objects. Clusters of shells, rocks, books, and other small items add visual interest without creating clutter.
3. Adding lighting to a surface brings warmth can balance the height of other tall pieces.
4. Style your home with things that have meaning to you. What objects remind you of a story that you could tell guests?
5. When styling there’s no need to spend a lot of money. Use what you already have around the house.
Kim also painted the grey and green cabinet piece you see in the video and photos below. Follow the transformation in this post from earlier this year.
