Can’t keep up with the trends?
With social media being ever-present in society, ideas can be shared with more people more quickly than ever before! This, however, also means they go out of style more quickly than ever before. By the time your funky 70’s inspired mirror has shipped, the trend has come, gone, and swung around public opinion to the point where your carefully curated decor is now…tacky. New buyers excitedly decorating their upgraded space, and new sellers trying to stage for appeal can’t afford to get caught up in and swept away by these flash trends. So, to save you some time and headache, we’ve compiled a list of the latest and greatest trends that are sure to become timeless classics for any home!
Cozy Up with Texture
A warm and inviting space is in, and for good reason! You can never be too cozy and mixing textures like wood, wicker, fur, and feathers can create a relaxing environment. Try adding a couple plush blankets, pillows, and rugs to your most comfortable spaces.
Mesmerizing Symmetry and Balance
Derivative of feng shui, this trend of creating perfect symmetry in a room has made it’s way west, and is here to stay! Sets of two bedside or end tables paired with two lamps, two paintings, two pillows, and of course, those two cute porcelain deer you got on sale, can come together to create a truly captivating environment.
The Old Meets The New
Antique and stylistically unique pieces of the past are making a BIG comeback! Pair your thrift shop and grandma’s-attic finds with more modern decor and stylings to create a truly timeless room.
BIG Pops of Color
Gone are the days of an all beige room with one singular purple vase adding all the life to the space. Instead, flip that style right on it’s head! Go for bold and bright in your walls, couches, rugs, bedding, and other large pieces. Fill your space with color and instead add a pop of white or cream in the smaller decor to tie it all together.
