You can never go wrong when decorating your console in a symmetrical manner. However, the key is to create a symmetrical arrangement is having a spread that isn’t boring. To prevent your symmetrical arrangement from becoming boring you want to add different textures that work well and mirror each other. Also, do not underestimate the appeal of fresh flowers and mirror finish décor. They add appeal and texture all at once without needing much.
Pop of Color
Color is great in fact we would argue it is almost necessary. If you have a minimalist décor you can always add a layer of intricacy by adding color to your console. Add colorful pieces that work beautifully together by using the same color scheme or same texture. If you wish to take it a step further, consider using a console table in a bold hue or with a bold pattern.
Unique Shaped Table
The first step to having a console table is finding the perfect one that fits into the space you need it to fit. Having a unique table may be exactly what you need. A uniquely shaped table will give you the trendy aspect while not being in your face. This is great if you want to maintain your current décor the same and simply want to add a trendy aspect to the space.
Most consoles are narrow and small which is perfect when you want to place them around an awkward corner or areas that are smaller. However, you can always have a statement piece for a console instead. A statement console should be large and in charge. You can in have it in a neutral tone that is bold when compared to your current décor. The color should be pastel as it will brighten up the space in a neutral manner.
Pops of Yellow
Although, we did mention using a pop of color we weren’t exactly specific in which colors you should use as a pop of color can mean any color that works for you and your decorative space. However, instead of using any color for a pop of color use the color yellow. Yellow is bright and cheerful which is great when you have a neutral space to decorate. Use a bold cannery yellow combined with other neutral tones for a pop of color that will compliment any space it is placed in.
Metallic hues are great. They are contemporary and fun while still being considered a neutral hue. This works great because you can pair it with as many colors as you would like, and it will look amazing. Use metallic tones such as silver, gold, and rose gold as they work the best when paired with bright and bold shades as well as neutral tones.
Lighting is Everything
When in doubt add lamps. Lamps are great they not only add light to your home, but they add an intricate touch to the space especially if they are intriguing shaped lamps or even have some texture to them. The idea is to have two identical lamps that will make a huge difference in the space.
Patterns are IN
All throughout this article, we have mentioned patterns. But, patterns are extremely IN this season. Add two or more patterns that work together to create the ultimate show-stopping space. In fact, doubling up on patterns is a great idea because it brings visual appeal to the room even if there are other patterns already existing in the room. Consider your console as a separate section of the room, not an all-inclusive décor piece.
If you wish to have a neutral palette that offers a feminine touch having fresh flowers is the way to go. Add fresh flowers to your current décor to enhance the femininity into your décor. You can also have fresh flowers to add pops of color to your current décor. Choose soft shades to enhance the space or bold shades for a brighter touch.
