1) Go Bold with your Wallpaper
In general, wallpaper hasn’t been as popular in recent years as it has been in decades gone by. However, it is certainly coming back into fashion, with more and more people choosing to embrace it in their homes and designs. If you think that wallpaper is a boring choice then think again – because this year you will have the choice of a whole load of textures and patterns, meaning that you can add a level of intricacy to the room that you’re designing. Thanks to advances in technology, you can even hang wallpaper in bathrooms and kitchens now, without having to worry about the water vapour being a problem.
2) Feeling Blue?
You may not think that blue is a colour that is suitable for anything other than using in the bathroom, however thanks to its ability to calm during times of stress, it is a colour that is becoming more popular than ever before. Not only is it now being used in bathrooms, but also in other rooms around the house, using different shades depending on the room itself. Cobalt is a shade that is particularly popular, and it is difficult to find somebody who doesn’t find that colour particularly charming. The colour of the sky and sea, blue is incredibly soothing, and can play a key role in any kind of design scheme.
3) Be at One with Nature
Nature walls are a huge thing this season, with entire walls of the home being dedicated to prints, or even wallpaper, depicting scenes of nature. It has been proven that being at one with nature can improve your mood; so allowing it into the home itself can only be a good thing. Plus, it looks great, and can definitely be a focal point!
4) Add a Little Gold
Gold is very “in” this season, and it can certainly add a touch of class to any home. You can take this opportunity to change your door handles to gold ones, or add gold cushions to your chairs, to give the room a splash of the regal colour.
