Bringing Quilts Into Your Home Decor
When thinking of quilts, our minds often go straight to our grandparents’ home, family heirloom quilts, and cozy cabins. While all of those thoughts are great, they’re just not everyone’s design style. How can you bring king quilts into a home with a more modern style? We’ll show you!
Choose An Updated Design
What makes quilts look ultra traditional? They’re usually made with fabrics with traditional, country patterns and designs. Small floral designs, farm animals, plaids, and checkered patterns all add to the country feel. To bring things up to date, choose a more modern design. There are a wide range of contemporary designs available. Look for more geometric patterns. Choosing solid print fabrics will keep things more neutral which will look good with any room design.
Look at the room where the quilt will go. When you’re choosing king quilts or oversized king quilts, keep in mind that the quilt will make a large statement in the room. Choose patterns that will go with the design of the rest of the room.
The other characteristic of quilts that can make them feel dated is the color scheme. Pastel colors, especially sky blues and shades of cream, will turn your design into a country theme quickly. Choosing the colors of your quilt will determine the statement you’re making. A bold color on a king quilt will create a modern look in your room.
Look for oversize king quilts in black and white prints for something that will stay in style, but still make a big impact on your room. For a different look, go for a bright color. Again, think about the room where your quilt will being going. Choose a bright accent color that is already found within the room. Look at accessories that you already have in the room and choose a color that pops. Find a king quilt that will help to pull that color in.
Styling Your Room
The key to keeping your room in line with your design style is simply to choose items that you love. Want to match that new quilt with an ultra modern sofa? Go for it. Tie things together with other elements like pillows, picture frames, and accessories. Bringing in a mix of traditional and modern elements will give your room an eclectic feel that will showcase your unique design style.
