Whatever you decide to do, don’t be afraid to display a mix of old and new items for a truly unique touch.
There is something truly magical about iridescent touches in a home. Not only does this style bring a new type of reflection into the home, it also helps spread beautiful light from corner to corner. Iridescent items such as display dishes, tile or artwork can bring exciting new color in without overwhelming the space and these items generally become a real conversation piece.
When we think about bringing raw materials into the home, generally we are speaking of natural wood, stone, brick or anything else we may see in an outdoor area. These textured touches can add a rustic yet finished look to any home and generally mix well with all styles. If you already have these materials in your home such as a brick fireplace or wood beams, make sure to highlight them whenever possible. Otherwise, bring in the above items on your own and feature them in the main living space or within an entryway.
