Jumping on the bandwagon of the latest home fads will be beneficial for a few reasons.
Firstly, it will make you prouder of where you live, and secondly, it will really get visitors talking. It will also put you in a position to ask for a higher sale price for the house than what it’s currently worth – it doesn’t matter if you have no desire to sell right now.
We’ll keep you in suspense no longer and reveal three of the fashionable trends you may wish to follow:
‘Tranquil Dawn’ or ‘Classic Blue’ colour scheme
It has become something of an event when colour experts Dulux and Pantone unveil their respective Colours of the Year, and it was ‘Tranquil Dawn’ and ‘Classic Blue that got the nod for 2020.
Sitting somewhere between a green, blue and grey, ‘Tranquil Dawn’ has been compared to “the space between the land and sky”.
It adds a calm serenity to spaces, the exact sort of atmosphere you want in a bedroom where you could have it as a feature wall or place Tranquil Dawn coloured pillows and cushions.
Said to be like ‘the sky at dusk’, Classic Blue is a self-assured blue hue and perfect accent colour.
Again, it can be used in accessories such as toss pillows, throws, artwork and area rugs, or incorporate a statement piece in the bold colour.
The damaging fires in Australia and rising temperatures in Antarctica have again highlighted how crucial it is that we all do more to preserve the health of the planet, including reducing our reliance on raw materials.
You can do this by making the most of recycled products when improving your home, such as fitting a recycled glass countertop in the kitchen or putting down reclaimed wood flooring.
Get down to the local charity furniture shop too for some pieces that you can give a new life to, instead of just buying new.
The usual straight-edged furniture is taking a backseat to beautifully silhouetted sofas and swivel chairs.
A curved sofa will be so attention-grabbing, and it will solve the problem of two people not being able to see other properly when chatting at opposite ends, great for those house parties.
Tables can be curved too, and you could put in some curved baskets for storage.
