In this kind of style natural materials such as wood, glass or leather as well as intense colors or patterns are widely used.
The influence of colonial style on interior design
This style takes its influences from many corners of the world and can provide a completely different look, both in terms of tables, chairs, cabinets, desks, dressers, sofas, decorative objects or even wallpaper.
The colonial decoration has quite large furniture made of hard wood, dark colors, which gives the decoration a very personal style. For some people maybe something more serious and even sober, but it does not have to be that way since there are also many proposals in which light colors like white predominate, a classic that has a great importance within the world of decoration
Normally, this style is usually used in the living room, although it can be applied in any room of the house and even in outdoor spaces. The wallpaper with classic motifs is one of the most interesting proposals of this style, although one should not forget something as important as old books as encyclopedias, which also brings a very special touch.
You cannot miss the rustic wooden furniture, because they provide the colonial look we seek for home decoration. If vintage decorative items are added, we will be able to enhance that style that we like so much like gramophones, turntables, telephones, street signs, maps, old lamps, etc.
The vegetation is another aspect that must be controlled as far as colonial decoration is concerned. In this case, there is a wide range of possibilities such as climbing plants, hanging pots, tropical plants adapted to interiors or even some bonsai trees among others.
