Comparable to clothing styles, home decor also has unique yearly trendy styles. Consequently for 2011, we are proud to review some of the top home decors that will definitely impress your friends and family or perhaps even inspire you to apply some of the ideas in your own home.
Call it nostalgia perhaps, but interior decorators undoubtedly are looking to earlier times for inspiration. You’ll find retro themed weddings along with home furnishings. What’s old in the 50’s, 60’s, or 80’s will deliver a new look to your home this year, so get your old chair frames, tables and settees and don’t forget that you could always buy new upholstery for them. Second hand stores and “thrift shops” have been replaced by trendy “vintage furniture” as the places where you could find fresh ideas.
Wall decoration and wall treatments are timeless and can often jazz up a room. These wall decors may well make the room look warm and comfy. You might have noticed how many more wall murals are getting applied, inside homes and on the exteriors. Murals can produce an impression of space on walls, as well as on floors. These types of murals can also be reused and reinstalled, so if you ever go on to another place you can still enjoy them. A more extreme design could be the use of metallic paint on the ceiling which is further improved upon by a striking lighting fixture.
On the flip side, many people are now looking for tips on how to decorate using ecologically conscious components. Innovative solutions in lighting style and appliances are designed for consumers who wish to lower their power consumption. There are also kitchen utensils which have been made from eco-friendly materials. Even though it’s tough to see any differentiation, the eco-friendly versions are made from biodegradable materials. For a more contemporary look, experts propose that you use hanging lights, not only in the kitchen but in the bathroom and bedrooms also.
Many colors that were popular previously are being reintroduced in the spotlight in 2011. Lively colors such as orange, lime green, red and coffee brown will be the preferred selection for outdoor furniture and decor. For a more traditional and timeless theme it is easy to go with the neutral colors to generate a sophisticated effect. The calming turquoise and green colored tones will continue to be a winner in 2011.
The preferred location in most homes remains the eat-in kitchen. The style in modern kitchens has to have an open plan with no shortage of ventilation. Decide on the patterns and kitchen elements that you put in your kitchen wisely. Benefit from recyclable materials for your counter tops and other decor to create an environmentally friendly workspace.
There are lots of affordable ways to noticeably improve the appearance and operation of your home. I’m hoping you now have a reasonable awareness of the popular themes for 2011 to carry out a few of them in your own home.
