Quote of the Day:
“Design is thinking made visual” – Saul Bass
With every new year comes new interior design trends. Fortunately, 2018 will feature some favorites of this past year, as well as new trends that may inspire you to revamp your whole house. The alluring aspect of design is that you can put your own spin on everything. Take one, two, or all seven of these trends, and make them your own. Love may be the secret ingredient when turning a house into a home, but your unique interior design choices are also part of the recipe.
1. Neutral Tones
Neutral tones depict cozy, clean, comfort. Transform a room into a boho hideaway with neutral fabrics and curtains, or create a crisp modern room using neutral paint and white furniture. This is one of the few trends that is impossible to overdo.
Velvet is a trend to sprinkle around your house. A velvet couch or velvet chair are statement pieces, whereas a velvet pillow or throw are a more subtle touch. Whatever your preference, velvet is a soft, luxe fabric that will elevate the room.
3. Gallery Walls
Making a gallery wall is an easy way to express your creativity and liven up a room or hallway. Use artwork, photos, shelves, whatever your heart desires. You can make them as neat or abstract as you would like!
Plants will never go out of style. They brighten and add life to every room. A small plant in every bathroom and a bigger plant in the master bedroom or living room adds a lot to the decor.
The idea of metallics when home-decorating may scare you, but metallics make your house more elegant when done properly. Small touches of gold, silver, and rose gold make the room sparkle without being gaudy.
6. Natural Light
In addition to making a house more inviting, sunlight makes interiors appear larger. Strategically placed mirrors and windows can create the illusion of a larger room. If you enjoy photography, natural light is the best backdrop to the perfect photos.
7) Office Space
Since more and more people are working from home, a unique and personal office space at home is becoming more common. Hang art, vision boards, maps, etc. around you to motivate you. When that doesn't work, it's time for coffee.
