Wallpaper doesn’t just belong in your grandma’s bathroom anymore! Choices are now in abundance for every style, from vintage to modern to floral to geometric. Wallpaper companies are everywhere online, and you can even create your own designs to put on your wall. If a whole wall is too much for you, don’t despair. Using it as an accent on the back of your bookshelf or cabinet adds a great pop of interest to your room
2: GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR LIGHTING
Nothing generates mood in a room quite like lighting. It’s why designers flock to create interesting and bold chandeliers, sconces, and lamps. They know that lighting truly makes or breaks a home. If you observe the trends, Edison and exposed bulb choices are in, both inside and out.
3: WOOD WASHES
HGTV shows love this (you’re likely to be familiar with shiplap from Fixer Upper) but there’s other options as well. Cerused wood, for example, is a type where a white pigment is brushed over wood to highlight the grain lines, creating a gorgeous rustic and airy feel.
4: SAY YES TO FLORALS
Don’t be shy when it comes to this pattern. While it’s an obvious choice, it’s a classic for a reason. And your options are so open, both for the pattern you choose and where you use it. Wall art, furniture, curtains, an accent wall, linens, and even dishware can add a brightness to your home that you and guests will love.
