Each year there are new trends to follow. This is true for fashion, as well as home decorating. If you want your home to look up-to-the-minute, follow these great home decor and design trends for 2011.
Accent walls are hot. Choose a wall to turn into an accent wall. This wall will be a different color than the rest of the room. When you are choosing a color for an accent wall, be careful. Accent walls can easily turn from a fun talking piece to a garish eye sore. Make sure you use a complimentary color to the rest of the house.
If you are looking for apartments for rent, consider finding out ahead of time what you can and can’t do. If you are not allowed to paint the walls, another trend option is to get decals for the walls. This is a huge trend for children’s rooms, but also for rooms like the living room. Wall decals can add a bit of dimension and fun to a room.
Consider wall colors that are different from the normal white or off white. The biggest trend in home decor is to personalize your home. Have it show your style instead of copying traditions. You can do this with a variety of options like colored walls, funky furniture, and more.
No matter what trends you follow, one thing to keep in mind is that you will want to make sure that you are comfortable in your home. If you are not comfortable and happy with the decisions you made, it won’t matter if it was a highly talked about trend or not.
