Why do Copper and Grey Suit Each Other?

Perhaps the reason grey works so well with copper accents, is that the two colors strike the right balance of warm and cool.  Grey, can be very cooling and serene, while copper (and rose gold) can be very warm and uplifting.  This contrast creates a harmonic balance rooted in color theory.  Color theory is not an exact science, but it is based on the spectrum of colors created by white light.  Part of color theory believes we can convey a mood using color, and that warm colors, pared with cool colors, provide some of the most aesthetically pleasing moments.  

Copper and Grey as Sources of Room Decor Inspiration

So, this post is about using copper and grey as sources of room decor inspiration.  First, navy, grey, and copper, come together in one look.  Then, we pull together blush, grey, and copper as a second look.  Using the same furniture, we can change a room, and create elevated style.  (Although we focus on color in this post, patterns and shapes matter too!  We explored patterns that satisfy visual plenty vs. patterns that satisfy visual clarity in previous posts.)

The Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe

In the graphic above, the sofa, coffee table, side table, lamps, and rugs stay the same.  So what changed?  Using our design concept, The Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe, we simply changed the artwork and the throw pillows, for a whole new look.  Read more about the Home Decor Capsule in this post, and in that post.  Read more about Color Theory here.  Do you like these two looks?  What  color combinations would you use?  Leave us a comment below.  Subscribe to our newsletter, and be notified when a new blog is posted.

How to Decorate in Any Style

Have you had enough modern home decor, and you want to go back to something a little more traditional?  Maybe you’ve never updated your spaces in the first place, and feel it’s a good time to go modern?  Did you know there are distinct, identifiable elements in each home decor genre?  Once you decide you need a change, you’ll be happy to know how interchangeable home decor can be, and how easy it is to change home decor styles.  First, let’s compare two home decor styles, then we will see how easy it is to decorate in any style, within the framework of the Home Decor Wardrobe Capsule.

Modern decor

First, if you struggle to identify what is modern, look for these features:

  • Clean lines
  • Abstract art
  • Netural tones
  • Calm, serene spaces
  • Use of natural materials
  • No curvy lampshades.  Lampshades range from straight and square to angular and industrial, but no traditional curves.

Transitional decor

Next, transitional decor is often compared to Traditional decor, because it goes back to softer, curvier lines, without going all the way back to traditional skirted sofas and heavy furniture pieces.  An abundance of these features in your favorites will indicate you prefer transitional home decor:

  • Antique rugs that have been re-dyed or distressed.
  • Abstract art is mixed with floral prints (see graphic above).
  • Formal portraits, usually art prints, that have been distressed or softened.
  • Steel or powder coated matte black metal in the place of brass or nickel.
  • Curvy, but not tufted sofas, and chairs.
  • Sofas are not as airy as modern sofa, or up on legs, nor are they skirted, as a traditional sofa would be.

Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe

Then, how to decorate in any style? Is it costly or time consuming?  No.  Within the framework of the Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe, switching decor styles is easy.  Your foundation pieces should be set:  Favorite sofa, coffee table, end tables.  These pieces are pricey, heavy to move, and therefore not easy to change around.  The foundational pieces stay in your space season after season.

Rotating your accessories

Ok then, what changes? Accessories change, as the seasons change, as your mood changes. Accessories are the interchangeable decor parts within the Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe.  In the graphic above, we changed: wall art, throw pillows, rugs, table art, and sometimes, lighting.  These changes created a whole new look.  We hope you can use this graphic to visualize your next room refresh.  We know your visitors will appreciate your versatility and elevated style.  Yes, redecorating in any style is easy.

How to start a Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe – Modern Farmhouse Style

Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe Modern Farmhouse DIY Home Decor #ModernFarmhouse #HomeDecorCapsuleWardrobe #DIYHomeDecor #TimelessDecor #ModernDecor #ContemporaryDecor #HomeDecorIdeas #Furniture Timeless Decor Modern Decor Contemporary Decor Home Decor Ideas Furniture

Who doesn’t love a good modern farmhouse look?  It’s cozy.  It reminds us of home.  It reminds us of days past at grandma’s house.  It reminds us of grandma’s good cooking.  Did you know, the look can be modernized and streamlined to fit any taste or budget?  The secret is a Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe.  

 A Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe is a collection of home decor items and furniture, curated to your individual taste.  Some parts of it can be considered your “permanent collection”.  First, your sofa, your armchair, your accent tables, and your floor lamps, are part of your permanent collection. If chosen wisely, you can keep these foundational pieces for a very long time. Next, “seasonal decor” is the home decor you rotate in and out of rooms as the seasons change.  

Seasonal Decor

Just as your fashion wardrobe requires more layers in the fall, your home decor needs blanket throws for the sofa or the chair.  You’ll need your favorite wall art.  Decorative pillows for the sofa or the chair are also a must.  You’ll need a throw rug that you can roll in (and roll out) as the seasons change.  The wall art, the pillows, and the rug, should all  contain similar flecks of color for a cohesive look.  However, they should not all be the same solid color, less the look will be too matchy-matchy.  If you are craving visual clarity, you can stop there and be done with the look.

Add Optional Layers

Finally, if you are craving visual plenty, you may require a bit more to realize the look of your room.  Therefore, consider adding optional layers.  Poufs, baskets, and candle lanterns, are beautiful and cozy.  A pretty vase, or a wooden bowl for snacks, is also a civilized way to warm up a room.  And voila!  Instant Modern Farmhouse.

So many thoughts about these two ultra modern sofas.  Both are stunning.  Both are tufted.  Both are ultra modern.  Both are made in the USA.  That leaves us to compare the dimensions of each sofa, and the price. 

Saturn Sofa, Apt2B – many fabrics available: 78.5 inches Length x 36.5 inches Depth x 31.5 inches Height.  Price at the time of this post: $1,498.00

Bantam Sofa, DWR – many fabrics available: 73.5 inches Length x 33 inches Depth x 31.5 inches Height. Price at the time of this post: $3,195.00

If you’re looking for a sofa in this style, these are both great options that depend on your space, your choice of fabric, and your price point.  Which one would you choose?  Leave a comment below about this comparison.  Follow us on Pinterest and Instagram for more Save or Splurge.

The chairs on the right come with a lifetime warranty, and are made in USA.  With a matching pillow, and a grey sofa, any one of these chairs  could be the wow factor in any room.  To complete the look, make sure you have similar flecks of color in your artwork and rug.

This is our biggest price difference find to date. Here is a very trendy, signature sofa, and its counterpart, for much less.  The Kelly Sofa went viral on Pinterest this spring, and it looks very similar to this Arabella Sofa by Meridian.   We love the Curvy Furniture Trend.  We love the Velvet Sofa Trend.  These sofas marry the two so beautifully.  We found the Kelly Sofa for 8,304 British pounds on the iLite website.  As of today, that translates to USD$10,900.  That’s nearly ten times the price of the Arabella Sofa.  Click on the links below to see the sofas up close.

You have probably seen several posts that curate pieces from the Amazon Prime Day sale.  I was able to curate another look.  This time, with cooler tones like blue and grey.  I think it’s a really good idea to take a second look at the pieces you can get on Amazon.  They partner with retailers of all stripes, so getting that timeless mid century modern look doesn’t have to break the bank.  Furthermore, once you know how to construct a bare bones basic color scheme in a living room, a site like Amazon gives you endless art, pillow, and rug options to switch out seasonally.  I hope you enjoy this mood board posted below.  Leave a comment.  Thank you!
