When it comes to home décor going with a neutral color scheme is often a safe bet. But for some safe can also mean boring. The good news is this can be a temporary situation. Having a neutral foundation comes with perks such as the option of updating and layering the room with accessories that may be more fitting with the changing seasons. Just like your wardrobe changes with the season, so can your home décor. So with this post I’d like to demonstrate how this neutral living room can make the shift from spring and summer to a fall through winter design color scheme that’s primed and ready for upcoming festive holiday entertaining. The following photos also illustration how with a few additional accessories a cool and airy space can be transformed with the addition of rich warm colors and a mix of wood and metal finishes into a cozier and inviting place.
As always everything comes at a price. If you’re like me it’s fairly easy to pick out the most expensive item in the store but that being said I always tend to opt for getting a similar look at the more budget friendly price. Here’s where you get to test yourself when it comes to your splurge vs. save sensitivity. I’ve selected several items at either a higher or lower price point which gives you the option of updating this room at a low of just over $2300.00 or a high of just under $12,000.00. So give it your best shot and see if you can determine which option is the splurge and which option is the save.
So how did you do? Were you surprised by your choices? So hopefully you’ve picked up some tips on creating additional seating and ways to layer warmer colors into your décor and create a totally new look that works for a change in season in the process.
