2020 was the moment for home improvement projects, as homeowners came to the realization that we would all be spending more time at home. What’s next after the DIY projects are complete? We’ve featured three major design trends to revitalize your space in 2021.
Layered Rugs: Double the Rugs, Double the Coziness
If there’s anything this year can guarantee, it’s that the layered rug trend is here to stay. Layering rugs in your home creates a softer, warmer statement without overwhelming the space. It’s also a great way to add visual interest in shared common spaces, such as the living room. How to get the look right, so that your space exudes that custom feel? Choose two rugs to layer that feature opposing textures to balance each other out. Natural materials like jute look oh-so-inviting with a cool, vintage-style rug placed over it. If your design style leans into the bold side, mix two patterned rugs within the same color palette. This trendy touch looks both intentional and artsy.
Incorporate Pops of Color into a Neutral Room
When decorating your home, it’s a smart play to ground your rooms with a neutral palette. However, don’t get lost in beige despair. You can easily experiment with fun hues and pops of color with any budget. If you are dipping your toes into the world of color, a foolproof technique is to start small. Use accessories like a patterned throw blanket or bold euro pillows to style your existing bedding. Give your entryway a serious sense of arrival by opting for a colorful rug or runner, which is both striking and practical. Saturated hues or lively patterns are excellent at hiding dirt and debris in high traffic areas. Plus, a rug with colors that already exist in your home provide a preview of what’s to come inside.
Mix Design Styles for a Personal Touch That’s Uniquely You
When developing your own home decorating style, it’s important to consider who will be living in the space. Maybe you prefer a modern interior, but your partner is into rustic finishes. No one has to lose on this one. By fusing the very best of two distinct styles— Scandinavian’s warmth and the Japanese’s minimalist spirit, a new style was birthed: “Japandi.” This perfect marriage works on several different styles, like the blend of farmhouse comforts with worldly traditional featured in our new Alexander Estates model in Tomball, TX. The pops of green that carry throughout the neutral color scheme of this spacious 2,273 square foot home provide a memorable impression.
