Whimsical Décor

Whimsical Decor1

Be brave and add a bit of whimsy to your décor

What is whimsy? The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as the quality or state of Whimsical Decor2being whimsical or fanciful. Other words we can use to define whimsy in an interior design plan include quirky, funky, playful, unusual, or unexpected.

Adding a touch of whimsy to your home décor requires a bit of courage and confidence; however, it ensures that your house isn’t a “vanilla” interior like everyone else’s. It also takes some imagination, which is what really Whimsical Decor3adds your unique personality to the look of your home.

Whimsy works best in interior design when used in small quantities and in a surprising way. If you use too much, your home could look like a carnival fun house.

The whimsical element can stand out from among the rest of the furnishings because it is different in shape, style, color, design or scale – or is just totally unexpected!

Design elements that work well for adding a bit of whimsy include: Whimsical Decor4
– Unusually patterned or textured window treatments, rugs or carpeting
– Wall art or sculpture
– Unusually shaped or colored furniture
– Unexpected wallpaper
– Stencils or murals on the wall, ceiling or floor
– Surprising fabric on a chair or sofa (or slipcovers if you want to make a smaller commitment!)
– Decorative accessories such as throw pillows, bed linens or table linens
– Display of a collection that is unusual; for example, kitschy souvenirs or unusual photos

Be adventuresome this fall and have some fun by adding whimsy!

Area Rugs2Even though rugs are a design element that we walk all over, they are an important part of your interior environment and a perfect addition to create warmth, definition, and beauty in a room.

Rugs make us feel good in so many ways – by making our feet happy as we move around the house and by adding a warm finishing touch that can be playful or sophisticated, modern or traditional.

Beautiful rugs are functional, too.

Area rugs also add function: They are an acoustical damper, keeping noise down from Area Rugs3heavy footsteps and children playing. They also work to square off functional areas of a room; for example, the conversational area of a room and the dining area.

When selecting a rug, take into account the floor under the rug, too. For example, add soft wool to hard wood, smooth silk to rough stone, or thick shag to flat tile.

Area rugs come in so many choices.

Consider the many choices of color, style, price and material when you select a rug, such as:
– Solid colorsArea Rugs4
– Abstract patterns

– Ethnic looks
– Historic Oriental rug designs
– Traditional wool or silk
– Practical cotton or blends
– Avantgarde designs and materials
– Shaggy synthetic fibers

Step on it this season and add a new rug! It will add luxury and depth to your room.
