At times, it can feel like having a stylish home means abandoning bright colours, clutter, and character. However, that is certainly not the case! Although there’s no need to abandon sleek lines and monochromatic colour schemes, designers have been experimenting more and more with quirkier themes. Jungalow, rustic bohemian, and other funky styles have been gaining popularity, and we couldn’t be happier! Here are some of our favourite decorations to add a splash of colour to your home. (Photo)
1. Jungalow. This design style has been taking off in 2016. Jungalow combines copious amounts of plants, bright colours, and design pieces from across the world. Showcase your Moroccan rugs, precious stone globe, and wooden statues! This is the perfect way to display all your favourite treasures from around the world. Plus, as we already mentioned… plants!
2. Mandalas. These beautiful patterns are becoming popular in more than just home decor. Mandala floor pillows, bookshelves, and bedspreads are just a few ways to incorporate these geometric shapes into your home. Bright, bold floor pillows lend a beautiful touch to your family room or den. For a simple decoration idea, try painting little mandalas on decorative rocks and placing them around your home. Using flowers, artwork, tapestries, and more, it is easy to add mandalas to any room!
3. Geometric Wall Paint. Create a gorgeous accent wall with geometric patterns. Use gradient shades, whites, and greys to remain neutral. For a pop of colour, paint crisp lines in an accent colour of your choosing. Paint it yourself, or use a geometric wall paper for a similar effect!
4. Bohemian Inspired. You no longer have to be a hippy to enjoy a touch of flowy, bohemian influence in your home. Canopy beds, plush vibrant rugs, and house plants take a page straight from the bohemian design book. Incorporate mandala floor pillows (above) and faux fur for a comfy, relaxed vibe. For a bed you’ll want to sink into at the end of the day, consider flowing bed curtains or an intricately patterned throw blanket.
