5 Big Trends in Home Decor


Thanks to websites like Houzz and Pinterest and TV networks like HGTV and DIY, it’s easier than ever to keep up with home decorating trends and find inspiration for improving your own home.  If you’re anything like me, you’ll find yourself down a Pinterest hole of all the most amazing interior design ideas maybe a little too often!  Here are five of the top current interior design trends that you can easily recreate in your own home:

Screen-Free Rooms

Adding cool tones to your screen-free room can help promote relaxation and mindfulness.

After a long day of using your smartphone and computer, it can feel amazing to come home and take a technology break. More and more, homeowners are creating specific screen-free rooms—perhaps a library, craft room, or listening room—where you can escape from technology for a while.  We made the switch to a screen-free bedroom a few years ago and my quality of sleep has drastically improved. I like the idea of a room where you can read or meditate without distraction, since I usually end up turning the TV on for some background noise just because it’s there.

Upholstered Headboards


Turn your bedroom into a sleeping sanctuary! 

What if you could feel like you were sleeping in a luxury hotel bed every night? The bedding and mattress are an important part of that experience, but so is the aesthetic and comfort of an upholstered headboard.  It can help give your room a luxe feel, and if you’re into DIY, you can make one that looks amazing for pretty cheap!

Earth Tones


Warm, earthy tones create a seamless transition from outside to inside.

Natural colors have become increasingly popular, especially deep greens. It’s a great way to bring some of nature’s colors indoors, whether as an accent wall, in blankets and pillows, or for furniture.  Earth tones are generally pretty neutral as well, so you can easily add pops of color to complete the look, or switch them out with the changing seasons for a new look.

Black Stainless Steel

If you want a sleek, contemporary kitchen, black stainless steel is even more of a statement than traditional stainless steel, which has become almost commonplace at this point.  Black stainless steel marries the aesthetic that many people love about black appliances with the functionality and modern appeal of stainless steel.  Plus, black goes with everything!

Patterned Fabrics

While solid upholstery will never go out of style, patterns have become trendy of late. It’s an easy way to make a bold, eye-catching statement in your living space.  If you’re adventurous, try layering complimentary patterns throughout the room to give it a high-end look and feel.  It can be easy to go from trendy to tacky, though, so when in doubt, less is more.
