Slow Interior Decor And All The Details You Need To Take Care Of

Put less but better, it’s a bit the common thread of the slow style. A snub to maximalism, to the current frenzy, to a brothel (even organized). Since we have started posting about minimalism and then about slow decor, we have insisted on the interest in details. We had the opportunity to talk to you about materials, fittings, textiles, etc. This time, we want to tell you about the “real” details, those which decorate and finalize your decoration. So how do you create pretty slow scenes? In this article, we are offering you some creative ideas, coming back to the “essentials” or at least the decorative accessories that we see very often in slow interiors.

What setting fits the slow decor?

A SLOW DECOR ABOVE THE BUFFET

One of the easiest places to decorate (whether in a slow decor or not) is the top of low furniture: sideboard, sideboard, chest of drawers, end of the sofa, console … We avoid large packages, we play with different materials, volumes and heights. This game will bring life to your decor and prevent you from creating a composition of lifeless and flattened objects.
If your furniture is stuck against a wall, the latter can also be the support of part of your decoration. You can find framed posters (I’ll come back to this below) or the famous round mirror so trendy in recent years. This wall decoration will allow you to create depth and work on the verticality of your decor. Shades of color may seem easy to work with but be careful with uniformity which can be bland.

PAMPAS GRASS – THE CLASSIC OF SLOW DECOR

Before being a decorative style, it is essentially an art of living. And getting bored with something that collects dust is not part of what we call a slow daily life. This is also why minimalism generally speaks to us more than slow decor. In short, pampas herbs remain a staple of the slow decor. What is nice about this decorative accessory is that it decorates without weighing down your interior. There is an airy and light side that can be nice in addition to the idea of ​​naturalness.
If you don’t like these tall grasses for masses, there are alternatives: dried wheat, dried flowers, dried lavender, cotton flower… Some green plants also have a softer, more cottony color. like eucalyptus.

VASES, JARS, AND OTHER CONTAINERS TO CREATE A SLOW DECOR

To highlight these dried plants, you obviously need vases, jars, containers so that they stand up! We will therefore have soft, rounded shapes, neutral and organic colors (beige, sand, terracotta …), natural materials (terracotta, ceramic, wood, glass …) Note that ‘they are rarely found standing alone in the middle of a sideboard or a shelf. There is often a candle, a tray, a mirror nearby. Once again, we tend towards the question of balance and harmony!

FRAMES AND POSTERS IN A SLOW MOOD

The slow living style is also made up of frames and posters. Level supervision, simplicity is the guideline. Wood, neutral colors, no unnecessary frills.
Regarding the posters, we are on something quite refined: a sentence in a pretty typeface that makes sense at home, drawn silhouettes, simple geometric shapes… The colors remain the same as for the rest of your decoration: white, the range of natural and organic colors, neutrals to create softness and a rather cozy and enveloping effect.

CUPS AND TRAYS FOR A SLOW DECOR

The last category of objects that we often find in slow staging: trays and cups mainly in wood or ceramic. It is interesting to delimit the space and avoid being scattered with the decoration. The cup is all the more practical because it allows giving a place to the objects which stain in the decoration. In the entrance, for example, the cup acts as a storage compartment and allows you to the storehouse and car keys.
