Just like clothes, trends in interior design change from year to year and decade to decade. While you probably can’t afford to change your house every year, there are several things you can do to brighten up a space or refresh it inexpensively when a new season comes around. Keeping your home fresh will help you to feel fresh, and the change will help revitalize your space. Best of all, many of these trends are kid-friendly, as they are easy to clean and won’t break easily. Here are a few of this season’s hottest trends — and where to find the items you need.
Elegant, Graceful Design
Recent decor trends have displayed a focus on neutral colors and modern lines. Current and upcoming trends emphasize elegant, timeless patterns and lines. Furniture, prints on fabric, and rugs are perfect for adding this element to your home. If you’d like to add just a small element of this design and balance it with other decor options and trends, just commit to a small piece, such as a comfortable chair or loveseat. A chair or loveseat will bring elements of comfort, practicality, and beauty into your space. Consider angling it in a corner near windows and light, and add a footstool to truly stretch out and relax at the end of a long day.

Today’s bling isn’t found in jewel tones, rhinestones, or gaudy gold. Add a bit of shine to your room with brass. Gloss, high shine, and polish are all buzzwords this season, and they’re very easy to find. Thrift stores and antique stores offer many inexpensive brass elements, and you may just have a family heirloom sitting up in the attic that would be perfect to showcase. The key is to put modern elements next to brass elements to add some pizzazz and keep the brass from looking dated. Get a brass lamp and add a uniquely shaped lampshade or place it next to an abstract painting.
It’s easy to make lacquered elements for your home as well, which are another hot trend. Pick up a few inexpensive, whimsical knickknacks at garage sales or thrift stores and paint them with a lacquered finish. You’ll be able to maintain a trendy home, and it won’t hurt financially when it’s time to trade out these elements and replace them with the next trends.
