Do you wish you had access to your very own interior designer? While it may be beyond your budget to hire one a recent article titled 5 Interior Trends From Nashville’s New Interior Design Resource has some great ideas to get you started on your own.
1. Rugs can make a room
Your floors need quality rugs. For the last 6-8 years, neutral rugs have been all the rage and the experts expect that trend to continue. Look for washed, muted colors, or traditional carpets in light reds and oranges. Abstract rugs, floor coverings with random bursts of color, are also very popular.
2. Paint an antique piece for a brand new trendy design
Take any antique piece and paint it with a new color to get a brand new – very in demand – piece. The decorators recommend choosing a piece that isn’t heavily carved and painting it a color with little to no sheen. This adds personality and helps the pieces stand out.
3. Don’t underestimate how important tables are
No matter what room you’re decorating, there’s a need for an accent table. The decorators especially recommend tables that serve two purposes. For example, a bistro table in the kitchen will add style but is also functional. They also point out that accent tables create the perfect atmosphere for showcasing your treasures. An added bonus? Accent tables are easy to change out when your room needs a redesign.
4. Custom pieces can make all the difference
Custom made furniture is a great way to add a new look to any room. They suggest selecting your own fabrics for couches, having a table made that fits within your room perfectly, or ordering custom drapes. At Half Price Drapes, we offer hundreds of fabrics and with our custom options, you can choose the width, length, header, lining, and much more! Don’t forget that the right drapery accessories can make or break your look.
5. Accessories put the final touches on any room
The best, easiest, and most affordable way to pull a room together is to personalize the space with things you love. Whether it’s a metal planter, an oak mirror, or antique iron sconces, adding your own favorite accessories to a room can transform it into a place that feels like home. At the moment, the trends are leaning towards rustic, vintage, and French items but your concentration should be on things you love.
