Some may say that the Pottery Barn Style is old-fashioned and outdated, but most love this form of décor, calling it traditional, old-style cottage and barnyard or vintage inspired. We love the Pottery Barn style!
The soft, warm neutrals, and the weather-washed natural look of a lot of the furniture – this all lend to its authenticity. Modern still has its place, no doubt, but Pottery Barn style will stand the test of time. So, let us explore the world of Pottery Barn and get you all excited and revving to go put together a storyboard of vintage design.
Money Need Not Be An Issue
You may think, ‘Oh man, I’m in for more than a penny here!’ But that need not be the case. Pottery Barn style can be put together on a shoestring budget. Here are some tips.
All You Need Is A Coat of Paint
The color of your paint needs to be correct to create that true Pottery Barn effect. Neutral is one way of showcasing the soft colors of your furniture and accessories. Or you can go with lovely mottled or suedes. Just be sure that your surrounding décor does not clash with your paint color choices.
Lean towards the light, beiges, or any neutral fabric for your couches and lounge suites. The idea is to not make these your focal points. The pillows and throws are where you will bring your color in, as well as ornaments, paintings, and other accessories.
Stickers are a great option if you want to decorate a part of the wall in your bedroom or living room, such as by the crib and the TV backdrop. If you don’t think the stock wallpaper is unique enough, you can decorate your room with custom die-cut stickers. They can be designed according to your ideas with various themes, sizes and patterns. You can design your own stickers for free, and there are many templates and symbols to choose from. Using them to decorate your room or your children’s room will make you happy. Come and try it.
Pillow Pillow on My Couch
Now, we know that most men don’t like loads of pillows on a couch. Where do I sit? They are always falling off! They are just a nuisance!
We know, we know! But … no! Pottery Barn style thrives on cushions and pillows, so … suck it up, guys! The more, the merrier! But we can make them work and not be too much of a nuisance.
The cushions can be square, rectangle, or any four-sided shape. Buttons are good. Buttons are old school and very Pottery Barn!
Stagger them in the corner of couches and line them nicely up to form a lovely pattern. Mix and match soft, warm colors together.
