Decorating the Home with a Theme
As you walk through different model homes, you do not see a -theme- in the sense of everything being roosters or chili peppers, but you would see a cohesive home design look throughout.
In other words, if someone has chosen a Tuscan home style decorating, the best look would be one where all rooms use jewel tones, rich decorations, and home furnishings that incorporates an Italian look and feel. With this, the entire home is represented in a way that it appears the homeowner spent a fortune to have it decorated by a professional.
Therefore, when decorating your home to Tuscany style, we suggest you stick with a -theme- for the main rooms to include the living room, kitchen, dining room, den, home office, family room, and hallway bath. For the bedrooms and private bathrooms, it would be best to stay within the same color pallet and use the same design elements but for these rooms, you would have a little more liberty to personalize the rooms to each person’s personality and preference.
When you think of decorating your home with a theme, the goal is to adopt one idea that would motive and impress, and then repeat it throughout the home. Of course, you could add home accessory elements to each room to make them unique but while sticking to the general idea. The result is a home that has a unified style, which is exactly what you get with a model home.
For instance, if you love a rustic look, then you would use certain materials and colors. For this style, colors such as rust, browns, tans, reds, oranges, yellows, and even blacks would work best and for items, black wrought iron, dark-colored wood, stools, chili peppers or roosters, etc would work. However, if decorating your home with a modern style to look like a model home, then glass, stainless steel, and items with clean lines would be used throughout the home.
With a themed home, one goal is to establish a mood, which should reflect the style but also your own personality and personal preference. Using mood and style, your home would quickly take on the same characteristics that you would see in a model home.
