Fun Home Trends

Bright Paint Colors
Vibrant (and even neon) hues can look really chic on your walls. If you are looking for a way to freshen up a dull room, a bright pop of color can really do the trick. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming if you keep the rest of the room neutral. I’m not a huge fan of the “accent wall.” I prefer doing an entire room.

Original Artwork
Decorating your home with original works of art from funky local artists is a way to add a unique touch to your home. You could find such pieces at a local art fair or on online craft auction websites. You could also check out a local art school or university art program in your area where you can buy some student artwork at cheap prices.

1920s Inspired Designs
Love this look! The lines and glam of 20’s furnishings are so great. Why not incorporate some gorgeous Art Deco furniture or decoration into your home? Check out auctions to find authentic vintage pieces for cheap prices.

Simple Wood
Another trend I’ve been noticing is unfinished exposed wood furniture, with a very natural texture and feel. These simple wood pieces give your home a natural beauty that compliments any color. It works well with neutral accents to give the home a very peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. I’ve incorporated this trend in a BOLD way in our dining area. I’ll blog about that soon. 🙂

Stripes and Graphic Prints
Crisp patterns, graphic prints and stripes are popular at the moment in everything from fabrics to wallpaper to furniture. If you really want to add a bolder look, incorporate some of these eye-popping graphic designs into your décor. It can be done easily and inexpensively (think throw pillow, framed fabric swatch…)

These are just a few of the home décor trends  that may suit your style. Which ones will you incorporate into the décor of your home?
