Layer of Impression

There are so many design impressions that exist. It will be the key to creating an atmosphere or ambiance in the house. Let’s say that there are welcoming impressions, calming, peaceful, cheerful, fresh, warm, comfortable, fun, and other kinds of feelings. Here, you can combine the impressions you want to have in the house. For example, in decorating a room, you can have a cheerful yet calming impression. So, it won’t be only about a single impression so you can make the room looks full even by only playing with the impressions.

There are red, green, and blue colors used in this decoration to create a layer of impression.

Color Layering

It is true that the choices of colors are really wide. But, for a maximalist home, you can focus on vibrant colors that will characterize the impression of the design really well. Examples of vibrant colors are orange, yellow, blue, green, red, etc. The colors will be bold and stand out. If case you are not comfortable with the stand-out colors, you can calm down the atmosphere by combining them with other calming colors such as beige, ivory, or white.

Although the color combination is only applied in some small items, the impression is really rich without being overserving. There are a red throw blanket, a yellow patterned cushion, a purple cushion, and a yellow table lamp. Color Layering from @secretsofahostess

When talking about the pattern choices, you’ll be amazed because it is surely wide. There are geometric patterns (triangle, square, rectangular, etc), dots, lines, living things, floral, and some other choices. You can do the pattern layering on the home accessories. It is also possible for the furniture but it is rare except for the chair pad or upholstery.
