Maybe you’re trying to define your style, or perhaps you’ve already got your tried-and-true aesthetic nailed down. Either way, it never hurts to freshen things up in your home. Between endless Pinterest ideas, stacks of shelter magazines, and the constant inspiration on Instagram, it’s easy to lose track of your favorite looks and styles. So, we’re breaking down three different genres and showing you how to get the look with simple style equations.
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…
Who doesn’t love the coastal look? Even if you’re nowhere near the beach, this aesthetic can easily infuse a space with airy style. The keys to achieving the right balance of beauty and beachy are serene shades like blue, beige, and subtle brights, nature-inspired accents, a blend of textures, and an overall casual vibe. Sound like you? Follow our three-step guide for seafaring sophistication.
Start with an oceanic accent, like this coral table lamp. It’s both nautical and polished, so it doesn’t feel like you’re going for a “theme”, just an overall coastal vibe. Then, add soft textiles and a dose of color through throw pillows and accents. Finally, make a grand statement with a bamboo chair in a pretty shade of blue.
From Provence to Paris, the French have relaxed elegance down to a science. This feminine style easily works with an array of architectural genres and always proves timeless. What could be better? The goal in going for France-worthy perfection is to master the mix of rustic and refined. An opulent bed full of pillows never feels too precious surrounded by time-worn antiques and dressed in slubby linen. You get the idea. We’ve got the perfect French look tied together in three simple steps.
This equation is Parisian inspired and slightly provincial. The candelabra lamp feels like an antique but has a decidedly modern vibe, proving both elegant and industrial in the same look. Soften it with a plush pillow in classic blue and white, which recalls antique grain sacks you might find in a countryside flea market. Finally, add a classic wingback chair to your space, complete with a slightly weathered finish and timeless ecru upholstery. Voila!
Our idea of glamour is a cross between feminine elegance and all-out luxury. We like to imagine a space filled with gilded touches, floral accents, and the perfect dose of contemporary pattern. Crisp whites and sleek grays mingling with pops of bold color for a striking effect, layered with lustrous details. Is this your dream space? You glamazon, you! We’ve got another equation to achieve this look in just a few clicks.
Choose a table lamp with character and dimension. This crystal fixture not only has a glimmer to it, it boasts chrome detailing and a slick green shade to boot. Tie in that luxe verdant hue with a boldy beautiful floral pillow, perfectly feminine without going full-tilt girly girl. The final statement piece in your glamorous lair? This Tobi Fairley-designed arm chair. A slick chrome frame, blush leather upholstery, and an incredible softness all conjure an irresistible result.
So, is your look Coastal, French, or Glam? Happy shopping!
