Tips For Freshening Up Your Home

Decorating your new home is a project that can take you a while to complete. Once you’ve finished it, you might be happy with your interior design for a number of years. But nothing lasts forever, and eventually, you might want to make some changes. Keeping your interiors fresh prevents you from getting bored with them and can also help to ensure your home is up to date. You don’t want it to start looking old-fashioned or like you haven’t redecorated in decades. For this reason, it can be a good idea to avoid passing trends. However, you can also make some changes to your interiors to give them an update on a regular basis. Here are some updates that you might want to try if you want to catch up with the latest interior trends.

 

Get Some Eclectic Pieces

 

One thing that you might have noticed in home interiors recently is an abundance of slightly more eclectic items. In particular, you can discover glamorous pieces that certainly aren’t shying away from the spotlight. From velvet sofas to gold-coloured side tables, there’s no shame in introducing a little flair to your home. You can even look for some quirky pieces, whether it’s a lamp shaped like an animal or an interesting accent chair. If you like the glamorous side of life, you might take inspiration from the 1920s and 1930s, which could give you some sophisticated ideas.

 

Be Influenced By Japanese Design

 

Japanese design has been influencing interiors lately, and you can easily find some large retailers selling home interior lines with Japanese motifs. Look for things such as silk textiles, bird motifs, and stylised prints to create a Japanese-inspired look in your home. You can also explore the idea of “Japandi”, which mixes Japanese design and Scandanavian interiors. The simplicity of Scandi design is combined with the elegance and minimalism of Japanese design to create something that has clean lines and a subtle colour palette but is also grown up and sophisticated.

 

Freshen Up with Some Greenery

 

Some trends in interior design come and go, while others are simply passing fads. Of the trends that come back around, indoor greenery is one that keeps returning. Indoor plants are back in fashion, and they’re great for anyone who wants to brighten up their home. Having indoor plants and help to make the air in your home cleaner, and they add a lovely natural element to your home too. You can have fun with different plants and plant pots or even hanging baskets. Take a look at which plants will grow best indoors or, if taking care of plants isn’t for you, get some realistic fake plants instead.

 

Use Some Abstract Shapes

 

Abstract shapes are a noticeable trend that you might have seen in recent interiors. It’s a fun way to freshen up your home, whether you do so with some quick changes or you want to carry out a larger project. Using blocks of colour and geometric shapes, you can create a modern look that certainly isn’t boring. You can try out a lot of bold colours and even mix and match different shades to see what works. Try putting together some unexpected colours or even just some tried and tested ones that you know will go together and help each other pop.

 

Add Vintage Accents

 

Vintage touches around your home are a great way to add some timeless updates. When you choose something vintage that still looks good, it’s likely to go on looking good for many more years. There are various ways you could add vintage accents around your home if you don’t want to completely decorate it in a vintage style. You could have vintage lighting or a couple of small pieces of furniture. Another option is to get down to the smallest details and choose a vintage look for things like door handles and other hardware.

 

Live in a Little Luxury

 

Another way to touch up your interiors and give them a more modern feel is to add a little luxury. Make your home feel more luxurious and glamorous by decorating with things like velvet furniture and copper accents, freestanding bathtubs, rich colour palettes, and artisanal light fixtures. If you feel like your home decor is a little boring, why not add something special to your interiors to make everything feel a bit different?
