Redecorating? Learn to layer like a pro

Good interior design is a look like good fashion, you want to use the technique of layering. Often, good layering is the difference between a space that looks like it was decorated by an amateur and a space that looks like it was designed by a professional decorator. If you’re new to interior decorating, here are a few tips to help you layer like a pro

Layering basics

Layering can be a difficult concept to grasp at the beginning but at its most basic, layering is about creating a design that’s rich and somewhat mysterious. What you don’t want to do is go out to a home fashions store and purchase all the items in a collection. Good design can’t be found in a single ready-made collection. A sign of good layering is varying colors, patterns, and textures that combine to create visual interest. A well-layered room will look different depending on which angle you view it from. Certain pieces may even be obscured so you have to move about the room to discover new things about it.

Think in layers

It may be helpful to think about the entire project in terms of layers. The first layer is made up of the things you can’t do much about save for extensive remodeling. These are the architectural features that are built into the space. Layer 2 is the larger pieces such as furniture. It’s helpful to plan out this layer according to what the room is to be used for: functionality and comfortability are all-important. Layer 3 is for the final touches: rugs, baseboard radiator covers, artwork, light fixtures, throws, pillows, and any other accessories needed to fill out the space. The order is important, start with the architectural features and think about how to best use them in your interior design. Furniture is next because they’re the larger pieces that are too expensive to swap out whenever you feel like it. The accessories are the place to be bold with colors, patterns, and textures.
