Taking advantage of underlying design trends
There's nothing more challenging than replacing your discount window treatments, wallpaper and furniture if you haven't done so in years. However, it can be just as daunting to try and live with an interior that's sorely outdated. What do you do if you aren't into some of the hottest trends in interior design?
One way to start brainstorming is by thinking outside of the box and exploring other resources. While you might not be into the idea of using emerald throughout your spaces - Pantone's color of the year - this doesn't mean that you can't capitalize on other trends flying under the radar. Here are some low-key styles worth noting if some rooms in your home are in desperate need of a new design.
Tribal wear has taken the runways by storm, and it's doing just the same in the interior design world, according to Tallahassee.com. If you're into the idea of incorporating pieces with character and history into your home, this may be the trend for you. Tribal furnishings and decor can include anything from beading to hand-sewn blankets with a rainbow of different colors. If one of the rooms in your home is a little dull, tribal may be the way to go.
Another interior design trend that's growing in popularity is lace. Although it's not at the forefront of the decorating realm just yet, it might be worth incorporating into your space as it continues to climb the ladder. Exchange your wood blinds for sheer drapes that include lace for an elegant look. If you don't want to get rid of your blinds and shades, consider laying over them with a lace curtain instead.
3. Mid-century modern
Have you been noticing more chairs, sofas and tables with hard angles and clean lines? It's no mistake - contemporary furniture is back in style and it's here to stay. Look for mid-century modern pieces to create a fresh look in your home without having to do too many renovations. The right sofa or table can do all of the work for you.
Whether you intend on freshening up your home now or when the seasons change, these three low-key trends can help you begin the process. In the end, you'll be happy you did the extra research and found a style you could use to your delight.
