Focal point in Eclectic Living room

Achieving a layered look when designing interiors, can take your space to the next level. A layered design creates depth and visual interest, making a room feel cozy, inviting, and thoughtfully designed. But how do you achieve this look without it feeling cluttered or overwhelming? Here are some tips for achieving a layered look when designing or staging interiors:

Mix textures:

A mix of textures can add depth and dimension to a room. Think soft throws, fluffy pillows, sleek metal accents, and woven rugs. These textures can be layered on top of each other to create a rich and inviting look.

Play with patterns:

Mixing patterns can add visual interest to a room, but be careful not to go overboard. Stick to a maximum of three patterns in a room, and mix them in varying sizes and scales. For example, pair a small geometric print with a larger floral or stripe pattern.

Add layers of lighting:

Lighting can make or break a room’s ambiance. A layered lighting approach can add depth and dimension, and help set the mood for the space. Think overhead lighting, table lamps, floor lamps, and even candles.

Incorporate artwork and wall decor:

Hanging art and wall decor can add another layer of depth to a room. Choose pieces that complement the color palette and style of the space, and hang them at varying heights for a more dynamic look.

Mix vintage and modern pieces:

A mix of vintage and modern pieces can create an interesting and layered look. Think a sleek modern sofa paired with a vintage rug or antique mirror. Mixing styles and eras can create a unique and personalized space.

Incorporate natural elements:

Bringing in natural elements such as plants, flowers, or wood accents can add texture and warmth to a room. These natural elements can be layered on top of each other to create a rich and inviting look.

Don’t forget about the details:

Details such as books, vases, and candles can add the finishing touch to a layered look. Grouping accessories together in clusters can create a more impactful display.

In conclusion, achieving a layered look when designing  interiors, can add depth and visual interest to a space. By mixing textures, patterns, lighting, artwork, vintage and modern pieces, natural elements, and details, you can create a cozy and inviting space that feels thoughtfully designed.
