How to Create a Themed Room

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

Want to create a space with a cohesive theme? Many times, rooms are overdone with too many accessories and explosions of color. Keeping is simple will tastefully illustrate the theme of the room. 

For example; “the cottage theme room” can be pulled together by choosing three main colors, like pale yellow, light blue, and white. Repeat the established colors in the space three to five times. More than five splashes of color will create confusion and chaos to the eye. The colors can be introduced through window treatments, pictures, pillows, rugs, or accessories.

When choosing accessories for “the cottage theme,” follow the same rule as choosing colors: repeat no more than five times in the space. For example, your favorite collection of seashells and lighthouses can be displayed on a side table, in a picture, on a pillow, or on furniture fabric.

Whatever the selected color pallet or themed item, keep the number of three to no more than five. This design tip will create a well designed themed space that will wow your guests and provide you with a cozy and relaxing living space.
