Plaid in the interior
Blankets, so beloved by interior designers, are almost indispensable as a modern textile decor. As many owners of this accessory will agree, the blanket cannot get bored. You can remove it and get it if necessary, but do not refuse to use it. Plaid, regardless of color, perfectly fit into the interior of the bedroom. From his mere presence in the room becomes cozier and warmer. In the living room his place on the couch or chair. Woolen or knitted blankets are indispensable in front of a TV or a fireplace in cold evenings. A good "grandmother" checkered rug pleasantly warm in a country house or in the country. The blanket is no less relevant for the children's room. This accessory will be a wonderful gift for use as a blanket or bedspread in a crib.
And yet, despite the similarity of appointments, there are differences between the bedspread and the blanket. If it was appropriate to decorate with ruffles, pom-poms, tassels, contrasting fabric, the maximum blanket can be supplemented with a textured seam or fringe.
The plaid can be used not as a blanket, but as an addition to it. A knitted blanket beautifully folded on the edge of the bed will fill the bedroom with even greater comfort. For a living room, it is better to pick up a couple of tones brighter than the upholstery of the sofa or, if the room is not replete with bright accents, you can play on the contrasts, choosing a rich color.
Designers identify a few simple rules when choosing the color of a textile accessory:
- in a small room the blanket should be combined with the color of the walls, furniture and floor. The exception is white;
- striped blankets, including zebra print, visually expand the space in length or width;
- if the interior is in cold colors, a good choice is a warm color accessory;
- saturated colors and patterns add color;
- gray canvas perfectly complement the interior with the dominant warm colors;
- knitted plain blankets - decoration of any interior;
- White color is acceptable in any color.
Textile under the style
Traditionally, blankets, unlike bedspreads, are not the center of the interior, but they skillfully complement it. So, for a room designed in a loft or Scandinavian style, a checkered plaid with a subtle color: brown, gray, beige will be relevant on the sofa.
As a rule, when it comes time to choose a bedspread, the basic style of the room is already formed. For this reason, both the material and the color should be in complete harmony with the already used elements of the interior. A bed with a modern bedroom interior is better to cover from blended fabrics, preferring monochromatic colors. Provence and country style will successfully complement the bedspread of flax or quilted cotton, as well as made in the patchwork technique. A bed with a high headboard of the English style is better to cover with jacquard or silk, preferring shades with a slight shimmer.
"Zebra" in the interior
In the trend again animal motifs, and in particular black and white stripes of zebra. Of course, not everyone can remake a room with such a bold decision. But it is possible to try to diversify the familiar interior with the help of "animal" textiles.
Adding bold notes to the interior is worth considering the base color. Zebra goes well with brown, green, yellow, blue, sand, gold and purple flowers. If one of the listed basic colors is present in the room, you can safely add black and white stripes.
A neutral-color bedroom can be animated by placing a zebra print bedspread on the bed. But here it is worth remembering one rule: the smaller the room, the smaller the pattern, in this case, the thickness of alternating bands. For less daring decorators, you can use the following technique: choose the main color of the coverlet - white, and use the "zebra" as a trim.
A room with a bright color scheme can be varied with the help of a zebra blanket. It is enough to arrange such an accessory on the sofa in the living room or on the corner of the bedroom bed - and the interior will change!
