If you’re looking to make some changes to your home to make the interior feel new again, now is the time to do so. Before your guests arrive for the holidays, take some time to give your home a fresh look at an affordable price. Not only are sleek, minimalistic designs hot right now, but so are a few extravagant accents that can add that extra bit of class you’ve been looking for.
A classic throwback is always a safe bet, but 1950’s vintage accents are exceptionally popular. Bright pops of color such as red or aqua, particularly in the kitchen, draw attention in places like the kitchen. Replacing a few appliances with brightly-colored ones give the vintage aesthetic without adding unnecessary clutter to do so. A few large geometric- or floral-printed throw pillows in the living room will also do the trick if you want to give your home that vintage 50’s feel.
Black and White
Minimalists will love the monochrome trend, and those bright vintage pops can still be incorporated in with the black-and-white trend. Jet black accent tables, shelving, and light fixtures will give your home a classy look that is easy to style. Keep it simple and any colorful accents you add will draw special attention, or keep everything monochrome for that posh, city vibe. Homes where real estate is booming right now, such as the new homes in Austin, Los Angeles, and Miami, often boast that modern, sleek look for proof that simplicity is totally in style right now.
Whether you’re a millennial or not, this trend isn’t going away any time soon. Pale and dusty pinks are still in style and being incorporated into winter color schemes. If you’ve been shopping for the holidays, you may have even seen decor in simple, earthy tones with dusty rose or baby pink accents. These pale pinks are often being paired with greys, or more excitingly, mustard yellows that really bring us back to that vintage vibe.
If bright colors and pastel pinks aren’t your style this season, you can turn to deep, rich colors in elegant fabrics like velvet for a majestic vibe. Ultra-pigmented colors like burgundy, royal blue, and emerald in abundance are what the most fashion-forward are adding to their home this winter. Deep-colored walls give the room a more spacious look, so don’t be scared to splash some of these colors on the walls for an especially decadent living space.
One-of-a-kind, handmade items are not only the perfect way to add a unique piece to your home, but investing in a piece made by hand gives money to a skilled artist instead of an oversized corporation. Handwoven baskets, ceramics, and knit blankets give a warm charm to your home while supporting those who take pride in creating quality pieces by hand.
