Figure out how far you want to take it
First, before you make any changes or go out in a shopping spree, take a moment and ask yourself what inspired you to fall in love with this theme. Was it a recent visit to the countryside? Or was it because you want to create your childhood home, in the space you call yours now? The reason for speculating this is, if it was due to the first, chances are that you might get bored of the theme or find it inconvenient before long. So it’s also best avoiding big décor changes; like redoing your entire kitchen so it imitates great French country kitchens, or getting a wicked claw foot bathtub for your bathroom.
Rustic décor for the urban room
If you like the old fashioned, and the classics, and want to try out something small in your home to see how you’d like it if it surrounds you, we suggest starting with wall decorations. Small spaces like the entry way in your home makes the perfect experimenting spots. No entry way? No worries! If you have a guest bathroom, this too works brilliantly for this purpose. If you succeed, you can even extend the decorations and the theme to your guest bedroom; this is also a brilliant way to experiment with a room theme without being surrounded by said theme 24/7.
Playing the same theme throughout the house
If you’ve experimented with your theme, and you are pleased with how it looks and feels, then don’t hesitate to waddle in and get to work around your home. Whether you want to pull off a half modern-half classic theme, or a fully classic theme, is all up to you and your home. You might think that textured timber kitchens are only suitable for fully classic or country themed homes, but you’d be surprised at how well it looks in a modern and chic setting. The pairing of wood and gleaming marble or tile is one that never fails to impress…
