The New Year has been in action for some time now, the holidays are over and it’s time to do some actual work. In order not to let winter post-holiday depression get to you, it’s important to get moving to a new project. Think about the interior of your house. When was the last time you redecorated? If you’re bored with the current look, new home decor is just the right 2019 project for you. It will keep you occupied for a while and you won’t lack motivation as you’ll be working on making your everyday life better and your own home more beautiful. In that respect, here are a few things you can do to make this happen.
If you have a big living room and your furniture is aligned with the walls, you probably have a bunch of unused space in the middle of the room. There’s no time like the present to change these circumstances. Building a wall inside one room is not a very simple solution and it narrows the space down, which is a shame for a living room or any large room that has a lot of light and should generally be spacy. Instead, try to section the space using your own furniture. The back of a couch or a moving shelf are great for this.
Cutting out sofas
A popular 2019 trend involves ditching the couch for a more modern look. Not only is it very chic, but it also frees up the space in your room. Therefore, you can use a settee instead of a sofa in a smaller room. Match it with some tabourets instead of armchairs as they would look strange paired with a “backless couch”. Side tables are also great space savers. Metal ones are particularly trendy now and they come in all colours and shapes, gold and silver being the most popular currently.
If you were never a fan of minimalism, then this is the right thing for you. Introducing the anti-minimalistic style where cosy and decadent furniture is not only allowed, but encouraged. Say goodbye to neutral and plain everything and hello to colours and bold combinations. Go nuts and stuff all sorts of furniture and colours as the motto of this style is “More is more”.
Matte black is the new neutral and if you, like Morticia Addams, think it’s such a happy colour, then this is great news for you. You can combine it with practically any colour and it will still look amazing. Black is elegant and classy, so if you aim to achieve this effect, then this new trend is meant for you.
White and crazy
Complementary neutral is white, of course. While many people dread using this colour since it has always been a go-to colour of almost every house we ever visited, there are some amazing combinations that can be done with white. For instance, white goes great with silly. Having that in mind, it would be fun combining white with some colourful patterns and crazy colours in general. Let your imagination run free and create a unique combination that will end up being anything but ordinary or generic.
The fact that all these things don’t even require a lot of money makes it all more enticing and realistic. So, the only thing keeping you from having the most amazing home décor there is, is actually yourself. Make a firm decision and a plan, arm yourself with some good ideas and DIY enthusiasm and you’ll be good to go.
