So Your Style Is: Arts and Crafts

The Arts and Crafts movement took off around the turn of the 20th century as a backlash against the fussy, overwrought style of the Victorian era. It rejected the factory-produced furnishings and decorative accents that prevailed at the time, embracing instead natural beauty and traditional craftsmanship.

Some of its characteristics are the use of wood, colours from nature, functional furnishings, natural flooring and hand painted details. It’s the appeal of handmade that attracts people to this type of style and it’s become a classic style even though it’s barely 100 years old. Its simplicity and closeness to nature make it ideal in any relaxed indoor.

White is many times considered boring when used around the house. But if used carefully it might be an excellent choice for your decorating. It needs some careful planning but with care it might become your favourite colour. If you don’t want to make it boring you can choose bright furniture and accessories to bright up your place. The advantages of it is that you can completely change the style of one room by just changing the accessories.

Also white can feel overwhelming if too much dark wood is used in the room. Pale woods are better suited when you are working with a white wall room. Whichever the way you want to use it you might want to check this article and get inspired by the selection of rooms painted in white and their decor.

And finally how to maximize a small space. Small spaces because of the size can prove to be extremely difficult to decorate. And many people feel afraid of using colour and pattern in those spaces. The reason is they don’t overwhelm the space with either too much colour or too much pattern. But both colour and pattern can work in your favour in these kind of spaces and make them look bigger. The trick is good planning.

Using patterned wallpaper in just one wall, creating a feature wall in a bright colour, using just one colour palette around the house, opening  up the space are just some of the tips. And they might help to organise your space in a more functional manner.
