Now that the weather is getting colder, it's time to crank up the heat with your home design by incorporating warm colors such as chocolate brown, burgundy and gold. These shades are ideal for fall and will also lead in nicely to the winter months when you're curled up by the fire. Take a look at some helpful tips to help implement warm-colored themes into your own home.
- Experiment with patterns and textures: While many furniture pieces can be purchased in warm-toned solid colors, you can jazz up this décor by adding patterned rugs, blankets and curtains. Using patterns and textures can truly make a room come alive and take it from drab to fab.
- Peruse thrift shops: Thrifting is not only fun, but it can also save you a ton of money. Shop with a friend and help each other spot great finds perfect for the home! You're likely to find artwork, picture frames and other accessories to complement your design scheme.
- Make it fresh: Just because you're using rich and earthy tones doesn't necessarily mean your living room should feel like a campsite. "Neutrals with brown undertones will always complement each other, but to keep the combination from feeling muddy, incorporate varied textures like silk curtains, cool metals and sheepskin accent rugs," reports Better Homes and Gardens. A great way to make a warm-toned room look modern is to add metallic accents, such as gold mirrors, picture frames or even curtains and drapes.
