Interior / September 3, 2018 / Zion Fenton
Resist the urge to be too theme y. For example, the Cape Cod look is a very popular request. You know the hallmarks, beadboard, a blue and white nautical palette, some sailboat paintings. But this has been done so many times, it lacks individuality. In this room the coastal vibe was achieved through a palette, artwork and materials that give the effect without drawing on the obvious clichés.
You do not need to fill up a space with lots of furniture. Spend more of your budget on fewer but better quality pieces, and your room will look better than if it is stuffed to the gills with flea market finds. The high backed chairs shown here, for example, stand out because they do not have to fight for attention. Hang artwork at the right height.
