When it comes getting design right, many homeowners ask themselves an age old question; what came first, the furniture or the decor? And, more pressingly, which of the two is most important? In truth, though, approaching this matter from an either/or angle is a mistake. As such, it’s no wonder you’re struggling to get started here. The truth is that decor and furniture are like the wine and cheese of a desert menu. They’re the perfect couple, and it’s hard to say which works best. But, do you question pouring that wine when the cheeseboard arrives? Of course, you don’t. Anyone can see that their wine and cheese are made to go together. And, it’s about time you realized the same thing about your decor and furniture pieces. To prove the point, we’re going to look at just why these two make the perfect pair.
Your Furniture + Your Decor: Getting To Know The Dream Design Couple
One doesn’t work without the other
If you haven’t realized that decor doesn’t work without furniture, it’s no surprise you’re struggling. By focusing on just one aspect, you’re never going to be able to get your designs right. After all, the best wall designs come undone the moment you place inappropriate furniture in the space. What’s more, trying to fit old furniture into a newly decorated room isn’t going to work. Instead, you need to approach both at the same time, every time. How else can you expect the bond to stay strong, and the room to remain wonderful?
They complement each other
They help each other achieve their goals
We’re all agreed that a couple should support each other in their goals, aren’t we? Well, the same rules apply here. Make your life easier by ensuring every choice you make helps other aspects of the room. For instance, if you’ve opted for metallic wallpaper to achieve space, don’t ruin it with a mass of furniture which makes the room look small. Consider how each item that’s in place helps to contribute to that overall goal you have in your mind’s eye. If it doesn’t fit, get rid and replace it with something better. Only then can you achieve the ideal household interior, and a design match made in heaven.
