    Default Decorating Your Home for a Casual Look

    Do you long for a casual style room that is homey, warm, comfortable, and inviting? Who doesn't want to be comfortable in their own home? If you want to put together a casual style room, learn the basic elements that combine to create a truly casual room.

    For starters, casual rooms have simple details, textured elements in fabrics and accessories, restful horizontal lines, soft upholstery, low-luster surfaces, and arrangements that avoid perfect symmetry.

    Details are simple, and elements are rectangular or softly curved.

    A room decorated in a casual style is the perfect place to have a touch of whimsey. Use an old or reconstructed birdhouse or wooden candlestick for a lamp base, stack pieces of old luggage for a side table, use a low vintage ironing board for a coffee table.
    Casual decorating is easily incorporated into rustic, French Country, cottage, Shabby Chic, or American Country decorating styles.
    With people enjoying more relaxed lifestyles, many homes today are totally decorated using the elements of casual decorating. But any home can incorporate the elements into a guest room, country kitchen, guest room, or bath. The elements of a casual style of decorating can sneak into most any room and make it feel comfortable.

    Casual look, yep, that's our place! I was telling the boarder the other day that she needn't worry about us ever telling her to clean up her room... Our house was a disaster zone! I sit in my comfy upholstered chair in the living room and things are spread around it, like a nesting site! One thing that I find makes a room casual is to have books in it somewhere...a bookcase. And quilts/afghans/blankets to snuggle under on cold winter nights. Soft cushions. Folk art, handmade things in general...all contribute to the casual look.

    My home is country/primitive casual. Nothing is fine or fancy. Makes it homey!

    I'm a casual type of gal so that style works for me. It's pulling it together that's hard so it looks intentional. Our house looks like what it is, a mish mash of stuff we've been gifted/thrifted/accumulated after 25 years.
