Keeping up with the ever-changing ‘fashion’ for home décor can be frustrating. Styles, colours and designs change regularly, and if you consider yourself to be a décor “fashionista”, these changes might trouble you. Thankfully, most of these interior ideas build up from the previous years, keeping their respective popularity somewhat significant. Here are some ideas on how to keep your home up to date, based on how décor trends have evolved over the past few years.
Less is More – A Bigger but Softer Palette
A few years ago, vibrant colours and patterns were all in. We’ve learned that using softer shades allows you to have a wider range of colours, while still keeping it subtle and appealing. Feel free to incorporate the colours through the furniture, wall pieces, rugs, and even walls; but keep the hues soft and muted.
In rooms such as kitchens, living rooms and bathrooms, warm earthly colours like grey, cream and brown, are slowly taking over the market. These colours can be used for flooring, walls, cabinets and even the furniture. Be sure to have a good balance between bright and warm – too much of one thing can spoil the aesthetic of a room.
A Touch of Vintage
Sometimes the tiniest detail can make all the difference. Even in a modern home, adding a vintage looking piece here and there will make the rooms more personal and unique, while not looking out of place! Nowadays, vintage items are very much in demand, and are therefore much easier to find.
Speaking about combining vintage with modern, it is also very popular to combine materials in rooms such as the kitchen. While previously it was all about being sleek and matching with one or two materials, mixing and matching has come very far. Combining woods, marbles, steel and more would add an original and personal texture to your kitchen, whether it’s countertops, cupboard doors and handles, or flooring. Just be sure to plan it out, and maybe even get some expert advice.
