Buying a new home or having an opportunity to re-furnish your current home is exciting! From developing mood boards to having an idea of the types of pieces you want to fill the room with, it can be easy to visualize what you want your home to look like. As a local furniture store with an in-house design team, our team here at Augustus & Carolina has had many clients tell stories about loving pieces of furniture in-store but they don’t quite match the way they thought they were going to. Don’t worry! We’ve come up with some tips on how to pick pieces that match.
Try settling on a color, or color scheme, when choosing furniture. This will help keep a cohesive look to the room. When you choose a color to work around, it gives continuity in a room with pieces of different styles. If you’re thinking about using different colored pieces of furniture, make sure your walls are a neutral color to balance out the tones.
Wood, wicker, metal, and more are all great materials to base your furniture choices around. This is a creative way to unify furniture combinations that are similar to each other. Need help? Our interior design team can help and offer advice.
If you’ve settled on a piece of furniture with a distinct pattern, try not to choose too many as it might make the space seem a little erratic. Choosing small pieces of furniture with patterns is key to making your space look cohesive, fun, yet not too busy.
Overall, these are just a few tips to help guide you through the furniture buying process. If you’re having trouble, our interior designers here at Augustus & Carolina are always here to help and can be as hands-on or as hands-free as possible!
