5 Easy Decorating Tips for a Curated Home

5 Easy Decorating Tips for rooms

Want to decorating like a pro? These 5 decorating tips will help get you on your way to a home that’s cozy and uniquely you! From mismatched pieces to texture, to coordination, these are the decorating tips you need to know!

Today I’m sharing with you a few of my favorite decorating tips that will help create a sense of comfort in your home with a curated look.  Anyone can recreate the look of a showroom or a page in a catalog, but a curated home is one that is unique to you and feels comfortable. Regardless of your decorating style, these 5 tips will help you decorate like a pro!


Let me begin by saying that coordinating is not the same as matching.  Coordinating doesn’t mean that you have to use the exact same colors, finishes, or fabrics from one room to the next, but rather that they complement one another.  This could mean you use various shades of a color palette as you move room to room, or you keep a consistent tone {either warm or cool}, etc.

By coordinating your colors and style from one room to the next, you’ll create a more open, flowing space that feels larger.  One caveat, though – I typically follow this only for spaces that are visually open to one another, so feel free to create something unique if a room is separate from the rest of the house {like a bedroom}.

My home has an open floorplan, so I’ve carried the same beiges, blues, and blacks from the kitchen, to my family room, and even into the guest bedroom.

Texture adds depth and dimension to a space with helps to give it a warmer feeling and lived-in look. In my home, a lot of my texture comes from vintage books, baskets, and heavily-woven fabrics because those items work with my decorating style.

But even if your style is modern or minimalist, you can still add texture!
Cool grays, whites, and chrome look even better when they are paired with a few great pieces of polished wood not to mention that the wood helps to keep the space from feeling cold.

So as you shop for accessories, make sure to include a few textured items that will help give the space dimension!


Sofas, chairs and the like are meant to create intimate gathering spaces where you can talk to one other.

Often times, the first thought is to put a sofa against the wall, but doing so often leaves your seating areas too far apart from one another.  Furniture that outlines the walls also creates an issue with having a large open area on the middle of the room that becomes troublesome to fill!

If you pull furniture away from the wall, you not only create areas for conversation, but also allows you to break up the room’s remaining space and create a cozier feeling overall.


One thing that gives a home its character is the use of different textures, finishes, and styles.  And honestly, it’s a more realistic approach to decorating, in my opinion.  Not everyone can toss out everything they own and start from scratch.  Most of us buy a few items at a time and as our tastes change, our homes become a mishmash of varying styles, finishes, colors, etc.

A home should always be a reflection of you and your family, so while magazines and catalogs show us lots of pretty pictures, they aren’t realistic and they aren’t you! Always add items that are meaningful to you when you’re decorating, whether family photos, children’s artwork, family heirlooms, or even vacation memories!
Remember, you’re creating a space that is uniquely you!
