Heyyy there Casa lovers!. Decorating with bold colors and different patterns can be scary because we usually don’t know what goes with what and in my experience I truly believe that if YOU like it then it’s perfect; it’s all about personal taste preference. In my case, my favorite color is green but I don’t like using green to decorate. Many people decorate their home with “what’s in season”, they see it on magazines and on TV and think that is the way to go. But the truth of the matter is that decorating your home takes time and you have to do it with pieces that you love, you set the rules, do not follow trends, do it with what you love. Having a vision board just like designers helps a lot because it allows you to take pictures of the things you like and putting them in a board inspires you to keep trying to make your house a home.In this post I will show you how I combined different patterns and a bold yellow color in my kitchen.
This is my small “island/command center” cart and in here you can see different black/white patterns; stripes, chevron, zig zags, etc. Inside the yellow box I have all my napkins, towels, table runners, cloths, among other linens. The chevron container above the box is a wire basket that has a Khaki fabric cover but I took 2 folders and used them to cover each side of the basket.
This wall art is simply a TJ Maxx .99 cents shopping bag taped in the back of the painting.
Gray, black and white chevron mat by the sink. Its actually a bathroom mat!, so comfy lol.
This is my dining table, it seats 6 and real amazing wood. We got this for $350!!!, a major steal!!!!. I always have cookies on a cookie jar. The centerpiece is a cupcake stand but I also use it to hold tomatoes, lemons & bananas, it was $4 at a thrift store. The table runner is from IKEA. I have a big kitchen and this table fits perfect in it.
You have seen this “wall art” on previous posts and this is why I love having this open frame with an IKEA shelf, because I can change it up. This is the wall to the right side of my dining table.
