As temperatures cool off it’s time to start cozying up inside. So we’ve pulled together a few of our favourite pieces from Urban Barn’s new line to help you guys out!
Just like our fall & winter wardrobes, we believe it’s always best to layer, layer, layer. In your home, this starts with a few key pieces and with lots of pillows & blankets.
We’ve picked our favourite pieces from Urban Barn that create the perfect starting point for us to accessorize a cozy space for the colder months and that can transition seamlessly into Spring/Summer.
Our absolute FAVE is the Mondo Chair. It is simply the perfect staple lounge chair. It’s beautiful, sleek and it’s minimalist design lends itself to mixing and layering. A pair of these lounge chairs will elevate a space and complement a wide variety of designs.
Next up is the Tarek Ottoman. It extremely versatile as it can be used either as a coffee table, stool or as an ottoman. The leather colour is great for the colder months and the stitching detail is a beautiful feature.
The Stella Coffee Table is an elegant, modern addition to a space. It’s beautiful geometric brass base is balanced nicely with a sleek glass top.
And finally, the Ryerson Sofa is the perfect simple, structured sofa that every home needs. It’s even comfortable…do we dare say more?!?
Now for the fun part… layering! We thought we’d share our top tips for accessorizing and styling your home.
Proportion. You always want to start with proportion. On a standard sofa, 3 or 5 pillows is a good place to start. A 20” x 20” pillow is almost always a good fit and can be mixed with an assortment of sizes. Try rectangle pillows for a casual composition, or go with square for a more traditional look. Remember, not every seat needs an pillow. Start with the sofa or largest item and go from there.
Palette. Next you want to pick a palette and decide on colour! Colour has the ability to drastically change the mood of the space. New to pattern? Opt for tonal and textural prints. A monochromatic colour palette always works. If you envision something bolder, start with one multi - coloured design and then pull out colours from within the print.
Balance. Our golden rule of thumb is to always have one solid pillow to ground the combination, paired with one or two patterned or textured pillows. If you are a little hesitant to add pattern through pillows, you can always bring it in with throw blankets. We love to style throws slouched over the arm of a sofa or layered under a cluster of pillows.
