Alright – we are going to let you in on a little secret. We KNOW and understand your struggle when it comes to picking the RIGHT furnishings for your home. Will the rug go with your dining table? Is the sofa too big for your living room? Are you going to ruin the feng shui of your office if you add that piece of art? We hear ya loud and clear – designing your own home is difficult! But we are here to help – we want to take some of the guess work out of it for you.
So…. Here are 5 pieces that we can GUARANTEE will go with anything in your home. Whether your style is traditional, contemporary, modern farmhouse, or mid-century modern; we’ve got you covered.
1. The Caramel Colored Leather Chair
It seriously goes with everything! Caramel colored leather is one of those special textiles we keep in our back pocket at all times. If you don’t have a leather piece already in your home, this chair introduces new texture and livens up the space with its sophisticated yet comfortable look. It goes with ANY color. Do you have a navy linen sofa? Check. Do you have patterned pillows? Check. Reclaimed wood coffee table? Check. Are you starting to see a pattern here? Yeah, I thought so. Is your style not as traditional as the chair pictured above? That’s fine – just find a chair with track arms and contemporary lines and you’ll be good to go!
2. Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree
Adding a little greenery to your living room, hallway, or office is never a mistake. It’s the solution to an empty corner you don’t know how to fill, it’s a great complement next to a dresser or side chair, or it’s the welcome piece in your entry. And as an added bonus… it helps keep your air CLEAN! But promise us one thing… No matter what you do.. No matter how tempting it may be… GET A REAL PLANT! There is nothing more taboo in the design world than having a fake plant in your home.
3. An Abstract Art Piece
A common misconception about art is that it needs to tie in with your furnishings (whether it’s similar colors, materials, etc.). But that is SO far from the truth! Art should mean something to you – no matter what your living room’s color palette is. Whether it’s telling a story about your travels, representing the mood of the room, or you just think it looks plain awesome; art is all about expression. And that’s why an abstract art piece is included as one of our staples – it’s an easy addition to any space and goes with ANY style.
4. A Vintage Rug
It’s chic, it’s timeless, it’s funky – it’s whatever you need to complete your space! Vintage rugs come in all sizes, colors, and patterns – making it a perfect staple piece. Need something warm under foot for your kitchen? Need a statement piece for your entry? Need to add another layer to your dining room? A vintage rug is your perfect solution. And don’t fret if you’re on a budget – a vintage lookalike will do the trick.
5. Textured Linen Sofa
A piece like this will be sure to add another level to your home. The warm, welcoming feel of textured linen makes for the coziest bonus room sectional or luxurious formal living room love seat. It’s versatile style is the reason for being a staple piece. And I know what you’re thinking… But what if I have kids and/or pets? Believe it or not – you can still get the durability you need while still achieving the aesthetic you’re looking for. Sunbrella, Crypton Home, and Perennials are all fabric manufacturers that have perfected the art of providing a bullet proof product to it’s customers. So what are you waiting for? Get that white sofa for your family room!
