Décor trends change often and it’s not always easy to know how to use them in one’s own living space. Here are some of the latest décor trends along with information on how to adapt them to your home for a timeless yet fashionable approach.
1. Metal Magic.
Metals are becoming interesting accent pieces for the home. Brass and bronze are especially trendy. The beauty about such items is that they can be incorporated into various décor styles, from retro to modern. When using these metals in your home décor, try to ensure that you keep the infusion minimal so as to ensure it is striking without being overdone.
2. Pretty Patterns.
Flowers and other pattern pieces add softness to a room. They can be used in minimal amounts (think cushions or artwork) to make a living space more homely and aesthetically pleasing. The blend of floral design with modern light fixtures create an eclectic atmosphere.
3. Antique Attractions.
Antique furniture seems to be coming back with a bang this year, with the focus being on pieces that bring character to a room with their vintage flavor. The bonus of antique furniture is that you probably already have some pieces lying around the home. By adding them to a modern room, the décor instantly acquires personality.
4. Green Glamour.
Emerald has been named the color of 2013, but décor trends seem to be embracing other shades of this whimsical color, too. Bright spring greens are great for a lively feel, while olive shades and teal can bring depth to a room. Go with the green you’re comfortable using.
5. Embellished Walls.
Walls that have embellishments on them, such as patterned wallpaper, are a huge trend. This type of wallpaper is like instant art!
However, the options for embellishments are limitless! You can choose a 3D wall covering to give depth and texture to a wall.
6. Black and White.
The mix of black and white in décor is always sure to add some class and sophistication to a room. It definitely doesn’t have to be boring. An option is to let it result in a fun patterned wall.
A great thing about black and white as a color scheme is that it can be used as a means of pulling together a room’s décor theme. For instance, it can inject vintage flair while still remaining modern.
