For those of you looking at home improvement, here are a few tip offs on the trends that are ruling the interior design scene.
Neon brights and pastels
When it comes to painting their home, people are getting more and more creative and experimentative. The latest trend involves clever use of a combination of bold and pastel shades. Retro patterns in pastels are the trend of the future. In addition to being cheerful it is subtle too.
Furniture of the yester years is back in style. This style is slowly gaining popularity, but people are still apprehensive about it. The coming year will see more of this style. So go for it if you want your house to stand out from the crowd. The main tip is to strike a balance between the use of bold and subtle styles.
Including a few handmade pieces among the accessories is catching up big time. So get those family heirlooms out and put them to good use this year. Handicrafts and antiques will be evergreen décor pieces. Adding them to your interiors will give your home a unique look. However, take care to display them with style. Do not put them all in one place. Choose a theme and stick to it. Else your house can be mistaken for a museum or worse, a curios store.
Yes, you heard it right. Fox motifs are in and how? From wall papers to doilies, anything to do with foxes seems to be a big hit. It all started with fox print on purses and bags. Now it has become a part of home interiors. Rustic to contemporary, choose any of the designs that go with your décor to jazz up your home. Display pieces such as this one will go well with any décor. Choose something as neutral as this one for the right effect.
Crochet and lacework have that Victorian touch to them. Adding them to your current décor will put your home in the trendiest-on-the-block list. Lace also refers to the lace design patterns on wall papers, cushions, vases etc. Lace borders, stripes and even wire baskets in mono colors will depict the concept of lace in the following months.
Surely this word makes you think of heavy drapes and bulky furniture. But we are talking about the arrangement and not the objects themselves. Victorian style of decorating aims at glorifying each of your displays. So choose all your best showcase items and allot them an apt place for display. Complement them with appropriate lighting and backdrops.
