Comfort and color is what good home style is all about. But it’s the details that bring good home style to the next level, turning it into a design that’s timeless and original. Every so often it’s important to change up the look of your home. By adding new details, you can appreciate your home in new and unique ways. Here are 4 easy ways to add interest to your home decor.
It’s true. Neutrals never really go out of style. Scandinavian-inspired decor will always be in vogue. However, bold colors are the hot new design trend for 2019. From floral furniture upholstery to warm wall hues like Living Coral (a soft, pink and orange shade), you can add interest in your home decor by adding a splash of color.
Living Art Works
So what’s hotter than bold colors? That would be houseplants, and lots of them. Big in the 1970s, houseplants have been reclaimed as a stylish design trend. Succulents, Hoyas, and other easy-to-maintain plants are popular home editions. However, thanks to Pinterest and social media, indoor vertical gardens are the latest plant craze. Indoor vertical gardens are space-saving living art works. They’re also good for the air quality in your home. Talk about a win-win.
Clean, natural wood tones are a great way to connect your home to the environment. Whether you use stone or tile, choose a rustic wood cabinet finish or a terracotta backdrop color, or incorporate the natural warmth of Basswood shutters, the right finishes will add nuance and detail to your home.
Mix and Match
Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns. Patterned wallpaper, a rug in a spectrum of tones, or a statement print are all good ways to add interest in your home decor. In order for it not to look garish or overdone, however, be sure that the color palette is visually balanced. A shift towards maximalism only works if nothing stands out. The last thing you want is for your living room to look like an Op art installation.
It’s easy to get stuck in a design rut. Do you remember how long it took you to replace that avocado-colored fridge? How about those Hollywood mirror lights in the bathroom? It’s best not to let that happen again, right? Start updating today.
