Neutral palettes have been a trend for quite some time, and that has led to quite a bite of boring decor. By playing safe and sticking with neutral furnishings, walls and accessories, homeowners have created a wide range of uninteresting spaces. This does not mean that you have to paint all the walls a vivid color and upholster everything in bright prints. Adding a single wall of an accent color can add a real punch to room, even when the rest of the decor is neutral. Do not be afraid of adding color to a room — it adds punch. Incorporating color can take many forms: a colorful rug, a vibrant array of accessories, bold artwork or saturated textiles. Pick your favorite color and let it brighten a space in your home.
Unless you are stuck with a small living room, do not automatically push your sofa and all the rest of the furniture against the wall. This arrangement immediate creates a giant empty space in the middle and usually leaves the seating too far apart to be comfortable for conversation. Especially in a larger space, the sofa can help define the main area by moving toward the center of the space or to one side, depending on the configuration. Most designers feel running the furniture around the edges is a major no, no that lacks style and practicality. Even if the space is not big, adding a console between the wall and the sofa can add just enough space to change the feeling of the room. Rather than sitting along a wall, this sofa from Erba delineates the grouping and directed traffic flow between the sofa and the display units. This arrangement also helps highlight a spectacular sofa.
Geometrics are a great home decor trend for adding patterns to a room, especially if you are not a fan of florals and are weary of the ubiquitous chevrons. The various shapes have a pop art feel and will add a graphic jilt to a space, whether you choose a large rug or just a few well placed accessories.
Leather sofas and chairs are nothing new, but this natural material is finding its way onto new home decor pieces such as desks, nightstands and headboards. Luxury bedrooms are incorporating real leather and suede to create an opulent feeling that is gender neutral. It is even being used in custom kitchen designs as a surface material for walls and cabinet fronts. Try adding a small leather covered accent piece or even leather lighting to a space for more dimension. Or, choose a distressed leather that lets natural flaws show, creating a more casual look.
