Elements of Scandinavian design have been popular everywhere for decades, so it is almost hard to call it a home decor trend. However, the concepts of simplicity, comfort and functionality are becoming more ubiquitous in home decor. These sensibilities fit right in with our desire to lead uncluttered, lower stress lives. The clean lines of the furniture and versatility of Scandinavian style make them a natural for this goal.
Not everyone has training in interior design but most people decorate their own homes and everyone makes mistakes. It is inevitable. You find things and think they will be great in the living room, and you bring them home without any plan or idea of whats would be the right addition. On the surface, decorating your home is about what you like. Beyond that, however, there are elements of design like color, scale, lighting and placement that should be taken into consideration in any space. They all affect how the space will look.
Moving away from dark and heavy traditional furniture, todays home decor trends are using lighter tones to let the wood grain show. Weathered, rustic wood as well as more finely polished pieces are popular in family rooms, kitchens and bedrooms.
Art is the easiest way to add style, personality and color to a space, and, if hung incorrectly, the easiest way to make things look off. Hanging a piece too high is probably the most common mistake, say designers. It should be hung at eye level. Art should be hung so that the middle of the piece is 57 to 60 inches above the floor. If ceilings are tall, you can go a little higher for balance. If you are trying to hang a grouping or gallery, consider the middle of your grouping as the center. Also, make sure you pit the right sized piece in the appropriate place. One or two small pieces above a sofa is not going feel right compared to a larger piece. Speaking of larger pieces, big art can be hung so that the frames bottom is 8 to 10 inches above the sofa back.
