Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating

This spring there are some bold trends on the horizon. Read along to find out what is trending for the upcoming season!

Navy blue is the ‘it” color right now! This color is being used on accent walls and upholstery. Deep navy blue is showing up on velvet upholstery in all of the design magazines for spring.

A modern version of farmhouse style is still popular. This style has been growing momentum over the last few years, and it seems to be getting stronger. This version of farmhouse uses the deep farmhouse sinks, paired with clean lined faucets and hardware. In the past oil rubbed bronze was the finish for hardware and faucets for this style. Now the brushed or polished nickel is gaining popularity. Shaker style cabinets are the cabinets for this particular style.

Lucite and acrylic furniture are now being used on the legs of furniture. Most commonly they are showing up as short tapered legs on upholstered sofas and chairs. Typically these legs are used on a traditional frame to make the piece transitional. Clear legs on upholstery give it a light and airy look. Furniture pieces that are all lucite or acrylic are great for small spaces because they are not visually obstructive.

Copper is really gaining ground right now. It is showing up in accent pieces and as well as accents on furniture pieces. Bowls, vases and other kinds of accessories are being made in copper. This material has become more popular due to the rose gold craze.

Spring this year is bold and exciting! Enjoy the simplicity of farm house style paired with bold navy blue, acrylic and copper. The contrast between light lucite and acrylic mixed with deep navy blue; are further brightened by the use of copper accents.

Straying away from neutral colored palettes can be difficult. On the other hand, the main purpose of color is to give a space a new look. Yes, it’s a great way to implement your personality into your decor. How can you pull it off successfully?

  1. Using dark colors can add drama to any room. For instance, deep red walls creates a mood that dims down the brightness of your surroundings. In fact, such a color creates a closed in feeling and it also complements neutral colored furniture.

  2. Bright yellow is a bold color to use in your decor. The key to using this color in a stylish manner is to find furniture and upholstery that matches the wall. You can even try a floral print. Adding the color yellow to your decor is also known to add optimism and a positive vibe to your home!

  3. All colors aren’t stimulating. Forest green is a perfect color to use for homeowners who tend to shy away from color because it isn’t loud. Yes, forest green blends great with neutral or mahogany furniture. While the colors may contrast, together they give off a nature type vibe.

  4. Rooms painted a dark color can make a room recede or seem smaller. So if you’re goal is to visually increase the size of a room you should consider lighter shades.

  5. If you’re not sure about committing to painting your wall an intense color you can add color to various furniture pieces.

Just remember to be bold, have fun and enjoy reflecting your personality in your home decor!

Area Rugs and Open Floor Plans

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Uncategorized

Open floor plans are in demand for today’s active lifestyle. It can be challenging to create the cohesive design to anchor all spaces when there are no walls. Area rugs are a perfect solution for tying everything together by establishing the purpose and function of the room. Here are some helpful tips for choosing an area rug:

• Matching Rugs – The easiest and safest technique is using matching rugs. Matching rugs are conservative, classic and almost fool proof! This choice works well when furniture settings serve the same purpose. If your style is more playful than conservative, try using matching rugs with a bold design and color.

• Mix Solid Color Rugs – If you want to be a little daring, try combining mix-matched solid color rugs. Just make sure the colors complement each other. One easy way to bring some drama in to the room is by using one rug that is a neutral tone, and a colored rug. Using solid color mix-matched rugs is a creative way to distinguish between furniture settings with different functions.

• Similar Color Palette – Try mixing two solid rugs in different colors in the same room. Make sure that you choose rugs in a similar color palette. If you want to add some punch to the design, try using a patterned rug with similar color palette to the solid rug. This will define the spaces as unique from each other, but not disconnected.

• Textured Rugs – Combining textured rugs adds a special design touch to any room. A natural jute rug is a perfect example of a neutral color palette, not to mention the many textures they offer. Raw hide rugs can be included in your design which offers various patterns, color, and they mingle well with neutral colored rugs. This technique defines spaces as unique, but not disconnected.

When shopping for area rugs, do not forget to measure everything in the room and keep your measurements with you. Make a small portfolio to include paint chips, fabric swatches and flooring samples. It never hurts to take a few pictures or a short video of the room, so you can visualize the proposed design of the room.
