Vintage items of all kinds are popular in home decor, but no other sector of design has more choices than lighting. Whether they are truly vintage, repurposed fixtures, or reproductions, vintage lighting is taking center stage in living rooms and kitchens everywhere. Even within the vintage home decor trend, there is a wide range of how old the fixtures appear.
This hot hue is a refreshing change from the hundred shades of white and beige that have dominated wall colors in past years. Paint color is an easy thing to change and with all that neutral-colored furniture you probably have, a bold wall color is the fastest, most affordable home decor trend to liven up a room. It is a big dose of drama for any space. Do not like red? Opt for a deep blue or other bold color choice.
Shape, textures and designs from other cultures have long been incorporated into home decor trends, and with todays more relaxed, casual interiors, global influences are even stronger. Accessories from other nations, combined with varied textiles and a generous touch of rattan, shells or jute are here to stay. Designers and travelers bring back treasures to use at home that are now becoming part and parcel of interior design.
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.
