Trends come and go – each season we have the shifting in colours, patterns, and styles. As in the clothing game, home décor trends are like this, too, but there’s a little catch – the budget. You can update your whole wardrobe by the cost of a single sofa or dining table, so it’s understandable why it’s not always easy to follow the home décor trends. However, there are several tricks to keep it stylish and create a fashion temple within your home, without having to redecorate every few years.
Less is more
Not everyone’s into Scandinavian minimalism but you must admit that homes decorated that way always looks very trendy. You can pick up a few tricks from minimalistic approach experts even though you don’t want your home to be monochrome or feel empty. For example, you should be careful with accents – they do give a final touch to a room, but it’s easy to go overboard and make a place look cluttered. Keep it minimal, two or three eye-catching details per room (or per corner, if it’s a really spacious room) will do just fine. If you just started decorating your home, be patient – these details come at the very end, so it might take time for your living room or kitchen to start looking as you always imagined it.
Walk-in fashion haven
Nothing says “I’m a true fashionista” as having a walk-in closet in your own home. We all envied Carrie Bradshaw for having the possibility to put all of her clothes on display, but now you can have it, too. Give that spare room in your home a purpose and create your own fashion temple. If you’re not lucky enough to have an extra room, a part of your bedroom will be enough – there’s no obstacle that a true fashion lover can’t defeat. Not only will it look fabulous, but it will also make your whole home less cluttered – all of your clothes, shoes, and even cosmetic products will be kept in one place and your home will look refreshed.
You probably have at least one or two pieces in your wardrobe that were quite expensive but you haven’t regretted purchasing them even for a second – whether it’s because they’re of a good quality, easily combined, orcan upgrade any outfit. The same is with furniture – there are some classic, timeless pieces you should think of as investments. A comfy sofa, fancy bed frame, and fashionable rug – those are the things that make a central piece of a room; they are the basis you build the rest on. You purchase investment pieces once in a lifetime and you can always adjust them to the current trends, so make sure they’re the best you can find.
Trendy colour palette
Maybe you can’t redecorate your home as often as the trends change, but you can always change your wall colours. If you don’t want to do it each year, then choose a colour that has been trending for a few years – that’s how you know it’s a trend that’s going to stick around. For instance, you can never make a mistake with neutral, earthy shades or all white since it’s the home décor equivalent of a little black dress. If you’re into something more vivid, pastels might be just the thing for you. Creamy shades of pink, blue, and green look very trendy and they’re easily fitted into any style. After all, you can always change the colour of your furniture upholstery or your accents and follow the trends without having to call a painting contractor.
Your home should represent your personality, so if you’re a true fashion lover – your home should be stylish and trendy as well. As you can see, that can be achieved regardless of your budget, so go ahead and start building your fashion temple.
