We love modern homes because they’re structural, comfortable and chic. The soothing allure of a beautifully decorated residence makes homeowners and guests feel welcomed. Whether you can afford to invest substantially in furniture or you’d rather stick to more affordable accessories, there’s no doubt that a change in décor will totally transform your personal space into a more relaxing and rejuvenating environment. Sometimes all you need is a brilliant idea to help your home blossom once again. Here are some fun design ideas you might like to take into account.
Turquoise vases and decorative bowls
The dominant color of this summer season is turquoise and its derivates. The nuance is an ingenious mix of light blue and green, and it goes really well when used as a pop of color. Is your living room’s décor fading away? Do you feel that it’s no longer making guests go wow? Then maybe it’s time to bring in some new decorative pieces. Vases and bowls will never go out of style. They come in different shapes and sizes, and they blend with any type of décor.
For instance, you could include a turquoise vase on your dining table to make it pop up. Add seasonal flowers in the vase, and complement the rest of the décor with baby blue napkins. All you need is 10 minutes to your dining area appear fun and refreshed without breaking the bank.
Decorate with textiles – linens, drapes and rugs
Another fun way of revamping old fashioned furniture is with textiles. Replace that boring cover you’ve been using for 3 years on the sofa, and consider a statement color palette instead. How about a turquoise cover with discreet pastel yellow patterns? It will go really well with a baby blue rug placed right under the coffee table. For an added wow effect, you could play with color and give your living room a beachy feel with marine inspired pillow cases and deep blue drapes for example.
Statement furniture piece
This is a great idea to grab people’s attention. All you have to do invest in a furniture item that doesn’t blend with the rest of the décor. It can either be a vintage-inspired armchair or table. Make sure it comes in a striking color palette, and your guests will be shocked. Add more drama into your home and let your imagination run wild. In an all-white living area for example, adding two sizzling turquoise footstools will make your current décor appear more minimalistic and ingenious.
Striking coffee table décor
An interesting coffee table can instantly transform a dull décor into something outstandingly beautiful. And believe it or not, you won’t have to invest a fortune to turn an idea into a fact. Place an over-sized vase on the coffee table, and include natural flowers in it. Add candles in different colors on the table, as well as a couple of books. It’s done! The moment guests will walk into your living room, they’ll be drawn by your newly decorated coffee table.
Redecorate the dining table
A dining table takes up about ¾ of a dining room. This furniture piece occupies a lot of space, and if it doesn’t look enticing your room’s entire décor may be compromised. Nobody likes to walk into a home and stumble upon a bulky table with no appeal. The good news is you won’t have to spend thousands on professional advice. Use your imagination and play with color – this is everything you need to transform a poorly decorated dining table into a superb dining spot. Start with the decorative elements. Use vases and flowers to create movement to grab attention, and then focus on the china.
Decorating your home with curtains is such an easy way of bringing some life into your private space. Consider striking color combos and match the curtains with the rest of your décor. Turquoise is this summer’s dominant nuance. However you don’t want sheer curtains; there are numerous models available. Consider striking patterns like zigzags or polka dots, and add life into your living area.
Console table in the hallway
Very few homeowners pay attention to their entryways. To make your guests feel more welcomed, you might want to invest in a chic, glass console table. Decorate it in style and use smart accessories, such as bowls or candles. The moment people walk in, they’ll be fascinated by your modern sense of style.
Feel free to stick to white, but ditch your grandma’s plates from 10 years ago. Go minimalistic and make sure the tableware pieces are as simple as possible. This way, you can play with color and combine different linen colors to make it match the flowers. Bespoke dining tables can also add a zest of glory to your dining room. Instead you could “recycle” your current table, and use accessories and décor items to bring it to life, and make it appear more elegant than ever.
