Pillows Galore!

As we transition into Fall, we recommend changing out some of your decorating accessories to ring in the new season. New window panels, pillows and throws could help shift a room from a breezy, summery feel to a cozy, elegant Fall entertaining space. You would be surprised how much these small touches could change a space’s aesthetic. Our interior designers would like to share some fun, fabulous pics of throw pillows we found on a recent shopping trip! Not only are pillows one of the most fun decorating accessories to incorporate into a room; they also pack quite a bit of impact into a small surface area!

Less Is A Bore

We can appreciate a pure white, modern, minimalist space as much as the next interior designer. But our interior designers lean away from the “less is more” and much more towards the “less is a bore” interior design style. You can see a great example of this in the dazzling entryway pictured below from the recently completed Steiner Ranch Residence. We at Spaces Designed loooove color, texture and pattern!

Still not sure what we mean by “less is a bore”? Here are some more examples found on Houzz. These designs are bursting with visual interest!

Striped Spaces

Using stripes to add visual interest to a space is a great interior design tool. For the kitchen in this Austin, TX residence our Interior Designer thought the stripes on the island would be a chance to infuse the room with a contemporary visual accent; and make the island a feature piece in the space.

Here are some other great examples of stripes as visual accents. Sometimes the stripes are loud and proud; and other times they play a quiet background role, becoming almost a neutral.

Pattern Party

This season’s bold fabrics can enliven even the smallest project. A mix of soft and bold prints can really make a difference in a space by bringing life and character to a space! Look for bold colors and patterns such as tribal prints to spice up your home for 2013!
