Black and White:
While colour trends come and go, black and white remain a classic combination. As in fashion, this high-contrast duo creates drama in any space.
One bedroom design trend that won’t be changing anytime soon? The move towards soft, soothing colours. Experts say colours like blue and grey can create a more calming environment.
Built-in storage in your home offers utility without extra furniture, and can be a huge selling point should you ever decide to move on.
Though colour trends come and go, you can count on navy blue to remain a classic. So go ahead, get that navy couch or paint the bookcase deep blue. Then, switch out pillows and accessories to keep it looking current.
Whether you fill it with family photos or original artwork, large-scale prints or small pieces, bold hues or black and white, a salon-style gallery wall is always a good design decision. Mix frame styles and colours to create an eclectic look.
Minimalism for a Modern Look:
Minimalistic décor uses a muted, monochromatic palette, few accessories, and solid colours. It’s a great option if you have interesting pieces of furniture because they are able to stand out in the streamlined space. This is also good advice if the home has noteworthy architectural features like an ornate fireplace. Another spot where minimalist décor works wonders is in the kitchen.
Marble Anywhere and Everywhere:
Marble is one of the most timeless materials a person can put in their home. Flooring, countertops, tile accents – marble can be used in so many ways in any room in the home. It’s expensive, but if you are going to splurge on an aspect of the décor marble is a great investment. The muted colour works well with the intricate veining so that there’s visual interest without being too busy.
Layers of Lighting:
Many people forget that lighting is an important part of home décor. It can highlight other design elements and create a certain mood all while serving the function of illuminating a room. Lighting can also become a centrepiece when you incorporate an ornate chandelier or antique lamps. The trick is to layer lighting. Create a lighting scheme so that there are several ways to illuminate a room. Include functional lighting that lights up the entire room, task lighting that shines in a limited space and ambient lighting that’s soft and easy on the eyes.
