Modern Decor Tip: Blend Not Match
Are you having a difficult time trying to match the colors of the different pieces in your room’s color scheme? Do you want to know how good Interior Designers solve this tough problem? I’ll let you in on the secret…they blend the colors in the room instead of matching the colors. Don’t be afraid because you can do it too. In fact, I really recommend it because it will allow you the freedom of being able to easily incorporate more exciting pieces into the room’s color scheme and it will also make your life easier too since you won’t end up going crazy trying to make all of your room’s decor match perfectly!
How do you determine what items blend in your room and what items don’t? A real good rule of thumb is to stand back and look at all the pieces in question together and to go with your gut feeling or (if you don’t quite trust your eye for color) seek out a second opinion from a good friend or family member with a good eye for color. This method of blending not matching is especially helpful when you’re working with a pattern that may take on one general color when viewed from a distance. I also like to take a close look at each patterned piece to see which colors they’re comprised of to see if the piece is a fit. Be sure to have fun and remember; blend not match!
