Decorating With Variety {Guest Post} Susi from Design Shuffle

I have a special treat for you today. Design Shuffle contacted me a while back about doing a guest post and I'll admit, at first, I got very protective of my little ole blog. After contemplating it for a few weeks I thought why not? Design Shuffle describes itself as Facebook for the design community. Designers can upload their portfolios and everyone else can look at image after image of amazing inspiration! 
So without further adieu- say hello to Susi!
Hi, I'm Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a fantastic place to find and share design ideas and inspiration with designers all over the world.  One of the best parts of being a guest blogger is seeing all the amazing (and cool) projects people are doing.  So I'm excited to be visiting Inspirato Design today to share some inspiration for decorating with variety.  Variety is so important to creating visual interest in interior designs.  I've pulled pics of eight rooms that I think do a great job using variety.  Hope you enjoy!

Patterned Living Room Design

Decorating with variety can mean so many things. This room has a variety of patterns on the chairs, credenza and carpet that all work together through color.

Boho Living Room Design

Boho style is all about variety, as if every piece was individually collected over years and travels abroad. This kind of variety might be too much for you, but it shows how well different styles can work together to create a very interesting room.

Textured Bedroom Design

Variety should be found in textures as well as colors, patterns and accessories. Love the thick cable knit of the throw against the quilted coverlet on this bed and the jute rug on the floor. What a gorgeous bedroom design.

Living Room Shaped Design

When adding variety to an interior design, think about shapes in the accessories. Love the mix of circles and squares in this living room.

Framed Decor

While all of the frames are painted the same color, the variety of the shapes is what gives them added interest in this stylish décor. Love the dark frames against the pale wallpaper.

White Accent Design

Love the variety of white accessories in this living room.  The white unifies the look of the eclectic group of objects.

Accented Bedroom Design

Love all the variety in this bedroom.  A colorful headboard is paired with patterned pillows, vintage artwork and a natural nightstand. Love the horse head too!

Wall Decor Design

Art and wall décor are great ways to add variety to living room designs.  Hang a variety of different types of art or a mix of frame styles for a lively gallery wall. [ Images 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 ]

I was thrilled when I actually saw this post. One of the rugs was just the inspiration I was looking for! I'll tell you more about it on Friday!
Thanks Susi!
