6 Steps to Successful Home Decor!

Home Decor 2021

If you want to update home decor this year, here are 6 steps to make it a success. Whether you are looking to buy, sell a home or just change it up you can start with this:

  1. Check out the color trends to create a mood or style
  2. Think from ground up
  3. Sample Your Paint First
  4. Mix the high and low price points
  5. Build around the Space
  6. Use sustainable furnishings
First, consider the home decor color trends in 2021. This isn’t carved in stone and doesn’t mean you should heed today what is gone tomorrow. But you can create a mood and style that is minimal but impactful. This is especially true if you are looking to sell your home.
This year Pantone has picked a sunny yellow for contrast with neutral grays. The philosophy is “Ultimate Gray and Illuminating” makes a beautiful color combination for living rooms, kitchens, exteriors, and more.

Second, consider the flooring as you begin to update. This year trends are toward easy to clean fabrics and surfaces.

Thirdly, always sample your paint first.  According to Grant K. Gibson, who has been designing homes for more than 15 years:

Paint selection is one of the most important and cost-effective decisions you can make. Proper paint choices harmoniously connect spaces. Consider the house as a whole. You risk creating disjointed rooms if you paint one room at time. Take into account how colors affect our mood”

Mixing high and low points means you don’t have to spend a fortune to create a beautiful environment.  But, if you are planning to stay in your home and you find that one exceptional piece, go for it!

Lastly, building around space proportionally and using sustainable furnishings are not a passing trend. It is here to stay. Consider natural materials like bamboo, rattan and seagrasses.
