In this article, we share five ideas for how to layer a room and add dimension to your living spaces by thoughtfully layering frames, patterns, textures and more.
1. Layer A Room With Frames On A Mantel To Add Dimension
Stacking multiple frames brings a new dimension to tabletops or mantels. Use large artwork as the focal point and gradually layer it with smaller framed items to create the look. Find framed paintings, landmark photos, paintings or typography with a similar aesthetic for a cohesive display. Below, a mix of artwork and photos decorates a chest of drawers.
2. Stacked Pillows Add Style To A Couch
Layering pillows is an easy and affordable way to style your living room or bedroom. Consider the design and size of your couch when layering throw pillows and don’t compromise comfort for visuals. Use a Euro-sized throw pillow as the first layer, a standard size throw pillow in the middle and a kidney pillow last. You can create a similar effect by layering pillows on your bed.
3. Arranging By Color Creates A Vibrant Wall
Add pops of vibrancy to bare walls by layering colors. Use accents in the same color family to achieve a consistent look or go with a rainbow of colors to create an eccentric conversation piece. You can easily arrange books by color to make your literature double as a beautiful layered display.
4. Combining Textures Creates Coziness
Contrasting textures can add warmth and interest to your interiors. Pair a knitted blanket with a thick quilt and fluffy comforter to give your bedroom a cozy ambiance. It doesn’t have to be overly complicated, as a plush faux fur layer on a flat weave rug can instantly transform the look of any room.
5. Layer A Room With Complementary Patterns To Spruce Up A Space
Patterned fabric is a budget-friendly way to spruce up your living spaces. Layer patterned blankets, comforters and pillows to transform a dull or flat bedroom. Add life to your living room with patterned throw pillows or rugs. When playing with patterns, go with noncompeting colors and add a solid one to keep things consistent.
