A green pouf can highlight your room’s decor by contributing to the room’s overarching style and color scheme. When it comes to tying together different decorative elements, you want to look for similar shades of color and decor that conveys the same mood. As an added bonus, if you can find similar shapes and motifs across several pieces of decor, this helps make the space feel cohesive and allows each decorative item to work together as opposed to compete for dominance.
Decorating with a Green Pouf
When you’re decorating with a green pouf, you have so many options for the overall tone and style that the pouf falls into. A lot of what determines the pouf’s style is the shape of the pouf, the pattern, the color(s), and the intensity of those colors. We’ll cover each of those topics more in depth, but rest assured, a green pouf ottoman can fit into any design style and flourish.
Choosing Which Green Pouf Is Right For You
Because there are so many options out there for green poufs, you may be daunted by the search. Fortunately, if you think through just a few areas, you’ll be well on your way to finding your perfect green pouf.
Purpose: Your green pouf ottoman can serve a number of functions in your home. You may just use it as decoration if you want, but consider some of the other purposes: you can use it as a footrest, as a small table, a spare seat, or some combination of these functions.
Size, Shape, and Structure: Now that you’ve determined your green pouf’s purpose(s), you need to focus on the size, shape, and structure of the pouf. For the size, think about the dimensions that will fit your space and suit your purposes. The shape of your green pouf can be determined by what other shapes you include in the room, or you can use your pouf as an opportunity to add a unique shape. Structure comes into play with the function, since a firm green pouf is good for a side table, but a plush one is excellent for a plush seat.
Fabric/Material: Green poufs come in wool, cotton, polyester, and other materials. The material you choose will impact the feel of the pouf as well as the tone it conveys. Plus, some materials are easier to clean than others. Whether you’re decorating indoors or out, you can decorate with an outdoor green pouf, which is made to stand up to harsher conditions.
Pattern: Some poufs will come with patterns imprinted or embroidered into the fabric, while others may use texture and different pile heights to establish the design. Popular textures tend to be cable-knit or braided, but you can also find more subtle textures with cotton fabric. Then, there are green poufs that display actual patterns, such as braided cords. When you’re selecting a pattern or texture, find one that conveys your desired tone and displays any motifs/textures you want to include elsewhere in the room.
Color: Green comes in a variety of different tones, and if you’re looking to match your green pouf to other decor, you have your pick of shade! You can find green poufs that are lime green, emerald, olive green, mint green, forest green, or simply a dark green. Focus on finding a shade that is in the same vein as the other colors in the room and shares the same tone and style to create your perfectly styled room
