If you are a Pinterest follower, and who isn’t? You can get the best recipes, DIY and decorating ideas! Currently, they combined the trends they have been seeing. Some of these will definitely translate into décor trend guaranteed. Wondering how? Here is how Design Solutions KGP sees it:
Navy is the New Black:
A few years back I noticed navy coming on strong. It is so rich and of course pairs well with the gray neutral trend that we have been seeing. Blue tends to be the most popular color out there so of course navy should take center stage. When I first suggested navy to clients to update their décor many quickly accepted the idea and the results were stunning. Of course, navy can be considered a great neutral in itself, think of how you wear your jeans with just about anything- and those are navy. This trend will become more popular I am sure throughout décor. Depending on what you add to it can create a totally different look.
Which brings me to the next trend Bell Bottoms:
If you grew up in the 70’s you remember bell bottoms, bell sleeves, and the hippy- now we call Bohemian look? Bohemian has been popular for a while in decor. Ikats and Suzani prints took us by rage in the early 2000’s. These new feeling prints caught many designers eye and from there the Bohemian style blossomed. Many may say it is a little eclectic looking, but it definitely is a style to consider when updating décor. Think of clothing styles, we buy and try new styles as they come into fashion. You should consider the same for your home. There is a way to decorate so your style is classic and everlasting, but sometimes it’s fun to have a room that sports the recent trends to make it feel fresh and new. A simple pillow, an addition of a plant, new color on the walls, an accessory or even art can accomplish this. It’s something to consider.
Lastly, another trend that I think is important for all of us to consider is our health.
In our homes and in our lives, we are striving to live healthier and more consciously. A very good thing. We are more aware of our environment, more conscious of the items we bring into our homes. When clients are selling, one of the first things an agent will tell them to do is “declutter” or reduce the overall footprint we have existing throughout rooms in our house. I have been asked to do workshops on how to declutter to achieve better mental health. If our homes are our sanctuaries then we should consider what we bring in and what we put into them, as our bodies. Feng Shu is a great example of this.
So as 2017 embarks upon us, there are changes we can make in our homes that can feed us positive energy to improve our lives. If you are considering changes for 2017 I would love to hear about them and how they impact your lives for the new year!
