Savvy DIY Tips: How Taupe Redefines the World of Design Today
It is no secret to anyone that knows me, that I love to decorate and style my home. It has never been a problem for me as I have a strong visual eye and I know immediately when I see a piece of furniture or a design pallet that I love, that that is the “one” that I will need to complete my project. I have been a huge fan of the taupe color palette for pretty much forever because it is timeless and never goes out of style. I love black painted or stained furniture as well as furniture pieces made of dark woods, as they look really good with the taupe color scheme. I am not really into that “matchy matchy” style that so many go for. I like to mix the pieces up and turn a bunch of odds and end pieces into a masterpiece when properly placed….. kind of like that straw bench at the foot of the bed in the picture above. It adds a ton of character and texture to the room and I just love the mix of textures to create the bold but subtle look.
This hobby and favorite past time can come in handy if you love refinishing and refurbishing older pieces of furniture that need a little love. I love snagging deals at yard sales, thrift stores and sometimes…..if I get lucky, someone throws an amazing piece away and it is sitting at the curb. I love to snag those pieces and you seriously would not believe the amazing pieces that some people simply toss into the trash. They are treasures for sure and I find it so exciting to add them in some way to my collection. I so enjoy transforming any room in my home into a masterpiece by collecting traditional as well as eclectic pieces and it does not have to ever cost a fortune. It takes time to collect them…. but keeping with this taupe neutral pallet scheme is the way to go because you can truly keep your home in style for years and years to come due to this colors versatility and timelessness. There are so many options when it comes to the taupe color. There are varieties and shades to suit anyone’s needs and tastes.
