As you know, I’m always on the lookout for the latest trends and styles for home decor. I try to keep my color palette up to date so I can enjoy a fresh look in my home. This season is all about the distressed look. So I thought I would check out some furniture updates to see what might look good in my home.
Wooden bed frames are gorgeous. I love how divans are so practical with their storage solutions. It is ideal for a small bedroom. But to be on trend for this winter, what could look more gorgeous than a distressed pine bed? A woolen throw in grays or washed-out browns would complement the look so well. Even the bedroom floor can be brought up to date. Painting techniques on the wooden floorboards can create an aged or distressed appearance. Love it.
This is our cozy corner at home. I love the colors I’ve been bringing into our home lately. When it comes to finding the latest styles of furniture in here, I’m always looking at sofas online. I can even print pages out to put in a mood board or scrapbook. It helps me build up a style I can be comfortable with. This season I’m looking for beautiful button detailing in rich colors and fabrics. I would love something that goes with my gorgeous new rug too! I think some cushion covers rich in texture and bearing the colors would be ideal.
Furniture for the kitchen has to be the right size to fit. Our kitchen isn’t the biggest space. Table cloths are great for making dramatic color changes on a whim. My dining set could be changed to something chunkier in a golden wood. I would love a wooden kitchen dresser too. It would display some beautiful plates in my chosen color palette, as well as providing some much-needed storage. I think a cute little rug underneath it would help highlight it really well.
If you’re lucky enough to have a spare room, then this is definitely the season for clearing it out. With Christmas fast approaching, I’m already preparing for guests staying over. It’s nice to have extra people in the home at this time of year. My favorite colors are mints and blues, and I think these are both perfect for a guest room. If you often need the room for other purposes, why not invest in a sofa bed to make extra space? Have a little bucket chair in the corner, and a couple of shelves to display your ornaments. Perfect.
Hallways can be very bland. If you add a small and simple hall table with a drawer, you have somewhere to pop your keys. It creates an ideal focus point for the hall, and can be situated beneath the hallway mirror.
I love coming up with creative solutions for my home. Style is important to me, so I look for ways to keep on trend while staying functional. Happy styling.
