Wallpaper is making a comeback.
We’re not referring to the dated wallpaper in your grandmother’s house. We mean striking statement pieces that tie the whole room together. Wallpaper can easily add color, texture or patterns to a space that may be lacking that “it” factor. For example, consider placing a neutral colored piece of furniture, like a white love seat, in front of a chevron-patterned wall. It creates an interesting design focal point that feels fresh and unique.
Modern no longer means new.
We think one of the best ways to make a design new is to incorporate something old. Sometimes when you’re stuck on a design issue, look to older pieces for inspiration. The luxury trends of the future are about incorporating great styles of the past. Vintage pieces are unique and can easily be updated for a modern-style room. Paint or reupholster them to compliment newer pieces. You can find these types of pieces in vintage stores, vintage websites, and even exchange sites like Craigslist.
Don’t fear color!
We love the new design trend of adding bold, darker colors in a home, especially as accent walls. Designers used to shy from mixing colors, but it’s making a comeback in 2014 with many designers recommending it! However, if you’re worried about picking the right colors, refer back to one of our March blog posts about choosing color.
We think these new design trends are great, simple updates that can dramatically change the look and feel of your home. What updates are you looking forward to trying?
