Bidding adieu to the Holidays can be bittersweet, but new memories, new achievements and new home-inspiration awaits!
For many, The New Year encourages resolutions to eat better, work out more, strive for that big promotion, and engage in more acts of kindness. From a design perspective, it is also the perfect time to re-evaluate the ambience at home.
Cleaning up the Holiday clutter and taking down decorations presents the opportunity to make little changes to design and décor that can make a big difference. Start by taking everything off the sofa, off the counter or off the coffee table and hide the items out of a sight. Take some time to consider the feeling you wish to evoke in that room, and then decide what look would best support that.
Whether the room feels casual, modern or more traditional, there are many ways to refresh your home for the New Year ahead.
The casual and comfortable look never goes out of style. This year, a casual setting is best displayed by threading a central colour throughout room. Contemporary colours like soft greys and light blues embrace the winter season and accustom bold and bright pops of colour. Choose items like bedding and rugs as focal points and accent with accessories like flowers or a bright gurgle pot.
To achieve a modern refresh, look not just to colour and structure. Incorporating texture into a room elevates the atmosphere and boasts a sophisticated palette. Choose décor of varied consistencies and density, like an embellished pillow or brass ornament. The key to refining this sleek look is simplicity; when attempting modern design, less is better.
Achieving the traditional style is all about balance, choosing colours that harmonize and carrying a delicate mix of old and new. To spruce up a traditional room, try integrating contemporary items to liven up rustic pieces and heirlooms. Swapping out buffalo check with a navy pillow or taupe throw is a perfect way to spruce things up this season.
To continue to update your look throughout the year, keep a few sets of throws, pillows, vases, and table settings on hand. This way, your home will feel refreshed for each season.
Let’s make this year the most beautiful yet! Happy New Year!
