Three Easy to Try Interior Design Trends

Three Easy to Try Interior Design Trends

Do you want to give your home a makeover but don’t know where to start? If you’re tired of how your home looks and are itching for a change, try these three, simple interior design trends. They are easy to try and won’t take up your whole life. Be sure to share your home decor images on social media using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle We can’t wait to see how you inccorporate interior design trends into your southern home!

Three Easy to Try Interior Design Trends

  1. Use wallpaper to give a room more character

Though wallpaper is often thought to be old, stuffy, and outdated, it’s made a comeback in recent years. There are plenty of wallpaper brands like Hygge & West and Flavor Paper that put a fresh spin on wallpaper with their bold and powerful prints.

 

I absolutely love the Hygge + West wallpaper pictured above. It has a modern yet classic pattern that features sketch-style illustrations of cities like New York, Rio, and Sydney. Who wouldn’t want to stare at that while pouring a mint julep or tall glass of wine?

 

If you think wallpaper will overwhelm your home, consider other forms of wall art like origami, geometric shelving, or gallery walls. These alternatives are just as likely to give your southern home a bit more flare.

 

  1. Include plants and botanicals around your home

A little greenery can go a long way, especially in smaller spaces. Not only can plants make a space livelier, they increase air quality and provide a healthier home environment overall. And for those who don’t have a green thumb (or are too busy to care for plants)—don’t worry. Even the busiest southern belle can care for a wealth of gorgeous, easy-to-maintain house plants.

Heart-leaf philodendrons and Pothos are great choices to add around your house. If you watch philodendrons carefully, they’ll tell you exactly what they need. For example, if their leaves change colors or begin to droop, chances are they need some attention. Pothos plants thrive in areas that may not have a lot of light (perfect for rooms with a lot of shade) and are incredibly forgiving, which is great for those who may not have the greenest thumb.

Place a larger, potted plant in your entryway or foyer to charm guests or position smaller plants on shelves, windowsills, and ledges for delicate accents.

 

  1. Go big with color

Whether you love dark purple, shades of fuchsia, or energizing pops of yellow, big, bold colors are here to stay in 2018. But making your house bolder doesn’t mean you need to break the bank. Start by purchasing bold accessories like throw pillows, area rugs, and coffee table centerpieces and work them into your existing home décor.

 

A modern contemporary classic bathroom design, furnished with a classic painted cabinet, sepia toned picture on the wall, exposed brick wall and a window, a claw foot bath tub and black and white tile pattern on the floor. Photographed in vertical format.

If you want to go with something a little more permanent, consider painting an accent wall in your living room, dining room, or bathroom. Paint is one of the most cost-effective and easiest upgrades for homeowners, and it provides plenty of opportunities to be creative. The average cost to paint a 120-square-foot room is just $100, which includes the cost of painting supplies like masking tape and paint rollers. Section off a weekend to knock this project out and you’ll have a vibrant home in no time.
