AGATE WALLPAPER

Many seem to stay away from wallpaper in general, yet 2018 was a year that saw wallpaper used in more homes. 2019 will be no different, and it is all in print. Agate wallpaper is making a splash for its pops of colors, and its natural ununiformed lines and colors perfectly marry both the bold and natural trends we expect for 2019.

MATTE FINISHES

From beauty products to customized cars, technological advancements have made matte finishes all the more alluring and viable. Compared to the dramatic effect that high-shine finishes conjure, matte finishes lend furnishings a more relaxed, however, futuristic appeal.

Take this sleek console brought to life by a sensational yellow and periwinkle color combo. In a more traditional color combo it would have come off as standard. And if it were finished with a high-gloss effect, it would come off as overly loud. Instead, thanks to its matte patina, it’ll lend any room a quiet sense of dignity and grace while remaining ultra-cool.

For a similar effect, look for matte finished furnishings that boast unexpected hues and silhouettes, or go for classic styling as when a piece is finished with a matte technique, it will remain forever-cool.

CANOPY BEDS

Though they haven’t been in vogue since the late 80’s, we’ve seen a steady rise in clients requesting updated takes on grand canopy beds. It could be because hotel inspired bedroom suites have been all the rage over the past decade, or it very well could be that people are seeking out the ultimate comforting oasis.

Whatever the case, minimally minded canopy beds are readily available in an endless array of options. And since they usually boast a slim silhouette and elements, they can now fit in almost any room with ease without coming off as overbearing and unnecessary. To make one work in your bedroom, follow suit and source a canopy bed that is quiet and slim to ensure that it won’t take up too much space or ever go out of style.

Freshen Up Your Home With Spring And Summer Updates

Updating your home can seem like a huge blank, especially if it’s been a while. But there are easier ways to freshen it up and make it look spring and summer ready that won’t break the bank and won’t create a long drawn out hassle. Each of the each of these updates represents a current trend and something you can pull off yourself this weekend if you’ve got a little time a little scale and a little skill.

Take it to the floor

Some of the freshest rugs out there combine a couple of trends. There was a time when the Persian rug dominated informal spaces. Take a look at this one from Wayfair? The Warren luck brings in vintage feel but the color palette is all new. This is an easy and affordable way to instantly update a living room with fresh, bold colors that will get you were space noticed.

“If there’s one piece to invest in this spring, it’s a rug,” said The Glitter Guide. “It’s a surefire way to bring interest and style to any room. Try a colorful pattern or print.”

Brighten up the bedroom

While you’re thinking about patterns…”Swap in a patterned headboard,” said Elle Décor. “You don’t have to grab your paint rollers or ready the wallpaper to revamp a bedroom. Upgrade the centerpiece of your room – the headboard – to something bright and cheery.”

Patterns, patterns, patterns

Mixed prints have been all over the runway, and you can create a similarly textured and stylish look at home. Mix it up, mash it up, and freshen it up with an assortment of prints – florals, houndstooth, stripes, graphic patterns. You can create a look that brings depth to your space by using one main color as your anchor and then creating a mix of patterns around it.

Coordinate your pet decor

Your basic scratching post or dog bed may fade into the background for you but they can stand out like a sore thumb to visitors. Pet decor has come a long way, and no matter what style you’ve got going on at home, you can find something to match, blend in, or even stand out—for all the right reasons. Stores like HomeGoods and Target and blank all have tons of options that are affordable. But if you’re looking to break the bank, perhaps consider this.

New appliances

Lowe’s and Home Depot have both been running spring specials with appliances that are 35 to 40% off. These discounted prices could easily lead to you redoing your whole kitchen, but a new fridge Cheryl freshen up your kitchen. If you really want to make the purchase of painless, look into financing and both of the stores if you can get the 0% interest deal over 24 or 36 months you really don’t feel the crunch of putting out a lot of money upfront.

Paint, paint, paint

They really are few places in your home in and out of your home for paint can’t make a huge difference, and with such a low dollar commitment, you just have to pick and choose your projects. We love this one for blank, and also this blank

Bring in the flowers

When spring flowers start blooming, we have a natural desire to bring them into the home. After all, just the smell of fresh flowers can lift our mood. “Flowers always brighten up a space, no matter what kind you use,” said The Spruce. “You also don’t need a lot of them. A small floral arrangement on a table, mantle or windowsill makes a big difference. What’s particularly great about flowers is that every color and combination works together, so it’s a great way to experiment with colors you wouldn’t normally put together.”

Big, bold floral patterns are also a huge trend this season, so, while you’re thinking about how to display your cut roses, consider where you can make a splash on the walls, on an upholstered piece, or even xx

Frame your windows

Another easy way to bring an additional layer of interest to your home is with modern window coverings. Already have blinds or shutters? Framing the windows out with drapes that can be changed seasonally is a great way to create an interior that always looks updated and call attention to the outdoors and to your architecture (or create architecture where there isn’t much).

Shop your home

You can give areas of your home a whole new look without spending a dime. “I love updating the look of our home by styling the coffee table, accent tables, shelves, countertops, and mantel,” said Jane at Home. “One of the reasons I love styling is that I can use items I already have on hand.  If I don’t like how something looks, I can easily change it by moving things around or bringing in new items from another part of the house.”

Some of her styling tips include: “Use stacks of books to raise objects off the surfaces; combine items in groups of threes–preferably with a tall item, a shorter, more sculptural item, and a horizontal item; balance hard and soft objects, as well as things with different textures, colors, tones, and styles; layer–placing some things in front of others and some off to the side–to create more depth and give the space a more natural look.”
