Using Small Trends To Refresh Your Home

So I’m not about to advise you to strip down all your walls, to retile your floor, or replace all the worktops in your kitchen because it might not be in trend. Few people’s homes are precisely on trend and when they are, they regularly lack personality. This is all about small changes, about accessorising and about using patterns in a suggestive way that will enhance your home instead of making you look like you’re working too hard. Integrating trends into your existing decor is what gives a home character without it falling into the snare of looking like a show home. So, here are some trends that can be used to update your rooms in little ways.

Innovant Dining Room


Scandinavian

Scandinavian is here for good for 2016 and is by now pretty much standard. Before you rush out to buy large furniture pieces or repaint your whole house in snow white, consider adding some little touches. Simple things like lights with a pared down design are the kind of thing you’re aiming for as well as simple, black picture frames. Out go the bright ones – though they are great to combine with these simple styles – and income the simplest of simple shapes which work well with black and white photos and prints.

Wall Hanging

Updating your current furnishings can be as simple as exchanging a contemporary piece of art or a painting on your wall with a macramé wall hanging. Whether it’s an oversized one or a small one depends on your overall style and the space on your wall.

Brass

Brass is making a comeback, but not in the 80’s style you might remember. Shapes are far more straightforward, more industrialised and devoid of frills. Brass looks great blended with glass and works great in dark rooms. Just small changes like light fittings can make a huge difference.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is one of two Pantone colours of 2016 and while pink (which it basically is) might not be your initial choice for the living room, this subtle blush colour looks wonderfully in a bedroom. Just one set of bed linen is all that you need to give your bed a sense of this feminine trend and it works beautifully if your room is a fresh, neutral colour such as grey or white.

In Conclusion

When adding various tastes and styles, there needs to be something to blend them together to prevent a room looking like it's confused. Adding natural components like wood, pottery and plants will do precisely that. By using these items throughout your room and home, the trendy pieces won’t stick out, but be blended with the overall look. Natural pieces present your eyes with a relaxing backdrop and will make your other pieces glow.
