Home decor is similar to fashion. There are main pieces, matching pieces, accessories, and even makeup. When it comes to your home, your main pieces would be things like your countertops and closets, whereas in fashion your main pieces would be your dress or top. Now, much like accessories are important to complete an outfit, they are also important when it comes to adding those finishing touches to your home. Apart from your artwork, your drapes and carpets are an important touch to your home decor. With these two components being important, there might be a few things that you don’t know about them.

One of which would be that your drapes and carpets should always complement each other or even match. Now you may be wondering why and it is quite simple actually. You see when you step into a room the first things that draw your attention are the drapes and carpet. This is because they are often the largest pieces in the room. With that said, apart from your artwork and paint on the walls, your drapes and carpet actually set the overall tone for your space. So how do you get them to match without getting them made custom?

Well, your first step would be to look for things that are within the same color pallet. This is much easier if you plan on going with neutral colors like white or even black. Now if this isn’t an option for you, simply look for things that complement each other. There are a number of different colors on the color wheel that go perfectly together. You see, it really is that simple. If you find yourself stuck, you can simply Google and few ideas or even consult an interior decorator. Regardless of what you end up going with, you have to remember that you have to like it because it is your space.
