Collections Create Continuity Of Design Creating harmony and flow throughout the home can be one of the greater design challenges. Without it, the home can appear to be a patchwork of elements that don’t coordinate, complement or appear as if they belong in the same room or home! Increasingly, interior designers are using collections to create continuity from room to room. What’s a collection you say? A collection consists of design elements that complement each other and when used throughout the home, can tie the whole space together. Below are several tips on designing collections that create continuity.

1. Select elements that coordinate via one common element. Popular common elements include shape, color, finish, use, etc. A collection of art on a wall, with black frames in varying sizes, grouped together is an excellent example of a collection. The common element is the black frames, despite the fact that the sizes vary.

2. Coordinate your design elements from room to room. Not only do you want the design elements to work well together in one room, but you’ll also want to them to coordinate from room to room. While some design elements offer an overall sense of unity, other elements have plenty of “wow” appeal just on their own. Be sure your elements work well when going from from one room to the next.

3. Be specific with architectural designs and finishes. The finishes you select could be anything ranging from distinctive metallic, fashionable wood elements, beautiful paint textures and the perfect color scheme. The absolute best way to create harmony from room to room is by selecting the correct color scheme.

Selecting the perfect color scheme for a home is an art in and of itself. Many factors come in to play that can either make or break the design, harmony and style of a space. This design strategy alone, selecting colors, provides plenty of options for beautifying your home. Today’s homeowners are looking for residential synergy, attempting to coordinate a wide range of products for their homes that blend a single theme.  Fortunately, collections are most helpful when creating the sort of harmony that homeowners desire.
