STYLE GUIDE: A LAYERED HOME

In the world of interior design, the tides are shifting this year, and the mantra is clear: it's all about creating a layered home. The stark minimalism that once reigned supreme is now making way for a more eclectic and personalized approach to decorating our living spaces. This shift is marked by a profound appreciation for homes that tell stories. These homes are brimming with layers of interest, carefully collected, and filled with cherished objects that reflect the unique personality of their inhabitants.

MAXIMALIZE YOUR SHELVES:

Shelves have become a canvas for self-expression, and in a layered home, adorned with various ceramics, sculptures, and LOTS of books. These items, carefully chosen over time, offer glimpses into your passions, interests, and memories. They serve as a visual narrative, capturing the essence of your life's journey and providing a visual feast for the eyes.

TEXTILES:


A great way to acheive the layered look is through the art of textile variation. Mixing and matching textures, colors, and patterns in your upholstery, cushions, and drapes can infuse warmth and depth into a room. The goal is to create a sensory experience that invites touch and visual exploration. Think of layering different throws and cushions on your sofa or bed, embracing the richness of velvet against the coziness of knitted blankets.

FURNITURE VARIATION:


To truly embrace the layered aesthetic, consider incorporating multiple pieces of furniture into a room. A well-curated collection of chairs, stools, floor lamps, and tables strategically placed around your space adds dimension and functionality. These pieces serve practical purposes and act as conversation starters, inviting guests to explore your home's unique character.

LAYERING ART:

Another exciting way to bring depth to your space is to hang a gallery wall filled with cherished art pieces. Whether it's paintings, photographs, or prints, arranging them in a diverse yet harmonious display creates a striking focal point and adds layers of personality to your walls.

 Ultimately, the key to achieving a layered home is to get creative with how you style your cherished objects. Don't shy away from abundance; instead, embrace it. There's no such thing as "too much" when it comes to filling your home with items that hold sentimental value or spark joy. It's all about weaving a tapestry of memories and aesthetics that make your living space uniquely yours, reflecting the stories and experiences that have shaped your life. In the layered home, every piece has a purpose, and every layer tells a story, creating a warm and inviting haven.
