Home Decor Faux Pas That Work

When people think of interior faux pas, clashing colours and patterns might come to mind. Navy and black? What! All white walls? Are we in a dentist?
However with the rise of social media websites such as Pinterest and Instagram, home interior enthusiasts have turned these ‘faux pas’ into major home trends.
Clashing colours no longer exist, it’s what you want and like.
All white walls adorned with art on them are now the fashionable option to have in your hallway.
Read on for some more interior faux pas that are more faux please!

Mixing patterns has always had a bad rep due to people putting textures and patterns
together that really don’t belong next to each other,
which in turn results in a serious case of clashing!
But once patterns are paired correctly, this can completely
transform a neutral room into a space bursting with colour.
The key is to pick patterns that complement each other,
and to stay within a particular colour palette.

It’s a design rule that has been going on forever, be it in fashion or interiors,
navy and black has always been considered as a major no-no.
Not anymore! A gorgeous deep navy blue teamed with black accents is a trend that will stand the test of time.
The combination of colours are perfect for any room – living room, kitchen, bedroom.
Whichever room you decide, make sure to add neutral colours in to brighten up the room.
For this, artwork with a white border around the print works well.
You will also find that these neutral colours will really stand out against the darker backgrounds.

When transforming a space in the house, most people wouldn’t think about giving their doors a makeover,
let alone paint them black!
However, when the combination includes all white walls, it looks modern, sleek and clean.
To bring colour to the space, make sure to add some green plants in quirky plant pots – faux or real, both will work.
And to warm up the space, add a colourful rug of your choice, it will look great and feel super cosy underneath your feet!

All white walls can be seen as boring and even too clinical looking.
But it’s the way that you dress the walls that really make a difference and bring life to the space.
White goes with everything, so what you chose to put on your walls really is up to you.
We recommend brushed gold accents such as lamps and mirrors.
Photo frames look beautiful against a white wall, especially if they are black and white prints. A real classic look.
