Changing up the look of your home always helps you to appreciate it in new ways.
Whether you’re remodeling a kitchen or refreshing your living room, put your own spin on these home decor trends for a space that reflects your distinct style.
Designers have been shifting away from minimalist styles and Scandinavian-inspired rooms, taking us in the direction of maximalism. Sure, you’ll want to maintain the uncluttered approach that makes a space livable, but a shift toward bold art, texture and furniture means the graphic wallpaper or floral print sofa you’ve been eyeing is completely on-trend.
With Pinterest users throughout the world posting their decorating tips, there’s plenty of inspiration to be found on social media. According to Pinterest’s top 100 trend report for 2019, we will continue to see vertical gardens popping up in our social media feeds. This space-saving living art works in just about any indoor or outdoor area since it doesn’t take away square footage.
Neutrals never go out of style, but this year bolder colors are showing up everywhere from walls to patio furniture upholstery. Pantone selected Living Coral as its color of the year, and the pink and orange hues of this shade exude pure warmth. Those who prefer the cooler end of the spectrum will also find ways to apply bold color, such as the deep emerald kitchen islands noted in Houzz’s 2019 trend report.
If an emerald island is too bold for your taste, you might want to choose a rustic wood cabinet finish for your kitchen renovation.
Clean styling in an organic palette of natural wood tones remains a popular aesthetic choice for every room, not just the kitchen. Spaces that feel connected to the environment promote a sense of calm and reflect an appreciation of the natural world.
Before you redo an entire room based on a trend, however, consider testing it out in small ways, such as boldly colored throw pillows. If you find that the trend suits your style, move on to more extensive decorating projects.
