SYLVIA PARK'S HOME SUMMER TRENDSLifestyle
04 October 2016
If you're feeling the need to re-configure a room or two, read on to find out how you can incorporate some of the latest trends at your place:
The geometric trend is here to stay.
Put simply, the geo-trend is minimal, understated and therefore timeless. If your home is crying out for a more modern touch, then geometric is a great way to go. Start small with a potted plant in a geo plant stand or a geo-print throw slung over a sofa.
For the lover of less is more.
The au-natural trend is all about letting the outdoors inspire your decor. For instance, it could be as simple as adding a bit of greenery to your coffee table like a terrarium or adding a plant print to your wall.
Adding natural textures like a jute rug, linen bedcover or a wooden side table will also help to make a space feel warm and inviting.
You can choose to go big or soft but a bit of colour is always a good thing.
For a subtle addition of colour to your home try using unexpected materials like copper and brass, both of which will add warmth and vibrancy.
Alternatively, a tropical print or a botanical bedspread is a great way to stay on trend while also adding bags of colour.
Or in other words, fill your home with pieces that tell a story.
Embellished pieces are usually interesting or intricate. It might be a hammered metal vase or a decorative print, embellished pieces are intricate and interesting and are a great way to create a talking point in your home.
