The layered look isn't just popular in the fashion world—it works at home, too! Create warmth and visual interest in your home this winter by layering textiles, decor and accessories. Here are my tips on how you can use and combine different elements to give your home added depth and charm!
Rugs and carpets can help enhance a room, and layering them is a clever way to define layout and seating areas, especially in an open space. They are also great for covering up less-than-perfect flooring, or dings and scratches. You can layer one rug on top of another, or position several pieces together.
Another great way to change up the look of your home is through wall décor such as mirrors, frames and others, which help spaces from looking flat and unfinished. Instead of picking huge, expensive pieces, you can easily create stunning decorations by combining several items together. Practical and convenient, it’s also easy to rearrange these accents as trends change, or as fits your mood.
Aside from traditional art and wall décor, there are numerous other accent pieces you can use to give your home a finished look. Layering is also a great way to utilize mismatched or neglected accessories. Take a look around your home for any items that you can group together. Even old décor can be turned into instant focal points with character!
Whether it’s to add dimension and flair, give spaces a polished look, or maximize neglected or mismatched accent pieces, layering is a beautiful and practical way to create a warm and welcoming home. Which tip is your favorite? We’d love to hear from you!
