When designing a room, inspiration can come from anywhere. Even the smallest objects, like a seashell or a throw pillow, can generate the spark for a gorgeous space. To find your decorating inspiration, simply look to the things you love!
A Piece of Artwork
If you’re inspired by art, choose your favorite piece (or pieces, if they coordinate) to build your room around. Color is a great place to start. Here, the warm hues of this Parisian print can be seen throughout the room’s neutral palette, from the wall color to the rug
. Even the artwork’s silver frame is echoed in the metallic tables and accessories.
When choosing furniture, look no further than the style of your inspiration piece. The realistic artwork
in this living room leans toward traditional, so it pairs perfectly with a classic rug and ornate wall hangings. A transitional sofa
also fits right in, thanks to refined details like button tufting
and pleated roll arms.
For your decor, turn to your wall art’s theme. Replica towers and fleur-de-lis accents remind us of France, while other pieces draw more abstractly on the theme. The harlequin rug, for instance, mimics the trusses of the Eiffel Tower. In this way, the textures, patterns and shapes of your artwork can all be used as inspiration.
