Summer is already here, and if you want to bring a fresh look in your home, now is the perfect time to revive your space for the season. There are lots of quick fixes you can employ to liven up tired rooms, yet the easiest one seems to be playing with home decor accessories. Home accessories are an essential aspect of interior design since they set the tone and add color, texture, and layers to a room. Their role is to tie all other elements together in a space and bring character to it. Accessorizing, ultimately, is about bringing your sense of style and personality into your home. With that in mind, here are the most desired home decor accessories that will cheer your home for the warm months ahead.
Decorative craft products
The easiest way to set a new tone and bring a fresh look to your home is to add attractive home decorations, such as vases, planters, small sculptures, terrariums, or wind chimes. As the trend of using natural materials for furniture and accessories continues, consider enriching your home with decorations made from materials such as ceramic, straw, or bamboo.
Cheer up your rooms with greenery such as the ever-popular fiddle-leaf fig or the split-leaf philodendron in a terracotta (or more modern) planter, depending on your taste, and place them near a window. Alternately you can opt for using smaller versions of succulents, planted in oriental looking elephant planters, and put them on floating shelves, or just adding a terrarium on your coffee table.
If you prefer having flowers, consider metal flower vases filled with peonies, lilies, or hydrangeas. Interior designers give thumbs up for decorations that are a bit odd-looking or just play with irony and imagination. Besides being beneficial for your physical and mental health, plants also have aesthetic value, so we highly recommend using them as much as possible.
Decorating with original sculptures is another easy and effective way to take your interiors to another level. There are excellent options for every home, no matter its size or your budget. Like every art piece, they, too, need the right location to shine. As an example, you can place a few engaging sculptural forms among the books on your shelves, helping you break things up and adding interest to your display. Sculptures are also great as decorations on fireplaces, side tables, or ledges, so use your imagination and create exhibitions in different corners of your home by combining small sculptures with framed art photography or drawings.
Decorative craft products are a fantastic and cost-effective way to bring charm and uniqueness to your home. They are also a great way to show up your personality and style, so go as bold and as creative as possible.
Curtains are a different way to transform a room and make it more functional and comfortable. There is a great variety of ready made curtains. As we already mentioned, designers continue to prefer natural materials, so curtains are not an exception— materials such as silk and linen or cotton, accompanied with natural prints are trendy in 2020. In addition to flax, bamboo curtains are also in trend. An especially popular evergreen, plain curtains can perfectly fit into many design styles and give the rooms a finished look. When it comes to colors, natural tones such as beige, brown, green, blue can refresh the interior of any room. Natural prints are no less relevant, with images of animals, plants, and landscapes topping the trends this year.
If you want to achieve a more luxurious atmosphere, opt for french curtains – pelmets – an unrivaled standard of classic chic. Just keep in mind that they look great in spacious rooms. In small places, though, they can appear quite bulky. Another popular idea is oriental-style curtains, where the presence of pelmets and multi-level cascades can be accepted. As the styles of curtains are diverse this year, with a wide variety of colors, prints, and fabrics, there is a solution even for the pickiest among us.
Throw pillows are an easy and cheap way to add a new and fresh look to your home. They are generally associated with the aesthetics of a room but also have a functional purpose, which makes them perfect for achieving double results when using them as home decor accessories. Throw pillows are great on sofas, chairs, couches, and beds. Interior designers recommend them in cases when you want to tie color accents within a room, often being guided by the colors in curtains, walls, or area rugs.
When it comes to choosing popular designs, you can go for bold, recognizable prints that evoke pop-art vibes or select ones that look relaxed yet stylish. Another appealing idea is opting for patterned (from the boldest to the most minimalistic) decorative pillows. Their advantage is that they never go out of style, and you get the chance to be expressive and experiment with different patterns, all depending on the atmosphere you want to achieve.
How to best decorate with throw pillows? As their name suggests, lay them naturally on a couch or side chair and you will be able to achieve a more casual feeling in the room.
Wallpapers are, without a question, an interior trend that has been growing and will continue to grow by all accounts. Wallpaper trends in 2020 will present colors that are warm and inviting – corals, terracottas, sage greens, and warm greys. Some colors that will also be making a comeback in both wallpaper and decor are browns, mustards, golds, and certain red tones. Large scale, bold color, and even metallic versions are here for good. Also, floral wallpapers are gaining popularity, so it means that it all comes down to your taste and style.
For an optimal make-over in your home, opt for having them in powder bathrooms or foyers, so you do not have to intervene and be forced to redecorate on a larger scale. Another bold idea is 3-dimensional wallpapers. They are great if you want to achieve a sense of realism and texture to your interior. Popular among people that have more contemporary homes, 3-D wallpapers can come in many different designs, from realistic brick to geometric designs that play on the eyes.
However, if you want to bring a natural feel to your home, stick to tropical or nature-themed wallpapers. They can help you feel more connected to nature, plus they are also always trendy.
