More “You” in Your New Home
What’s in a trend? It all depends on how it fits with you. And in this case, how it fits with your new home as a reflection of you – your style, your taste, and your efficiencies. In this issue of Crossings Times, we explore popular trends in home décor and design, and how to make your home a little more like you.
Add some pop. Add some color. Add some vibrancy. Whether you’re a fan of accent walls or wrapping an entire area, go bold. It’s a smart, and inexpensive, way to personalize your space.
LET’S HANG OUT
The kitchen is the new family room. It’s where everyone hangs out. So give them reason to stay. Clean lines, neutral colors and plenty of room to entertain are necessities for kitchens today. But it’s all about how you deal with it – people in the way, kids making a mess on the countertop, and the list goes on.
Your bedroom should be the most intimate, and intuitive, expression of you. But where do you start? With something you absolutely love. Something that will transport you to another place and time. Like that Mondrian-inspired rug from your in-laws that you’ve loved for years, but could never find the perfect room. Use it as inspiration. Just find something you love, and build from there.
SPEAKING THROUGH THE DETAILS
When designing your office space, you have goals. You have objectives. And most of them have to do with efficiency – how can I get the most work done, in the least amount of time, while feeling great about it. We’re on the same page. And here’s how it all comes together – a cool color palette and “sans serif” furniture. In other words, keep it minimal. Your mind will be busy here, so let smaller details do the talking. Like pops of color from the books in your bookcase, or that intriguing piece of art you artfully moved without tearing it in the over-packed U-Haul.
COMFORT IN CONTEMPORARY
That can be quite an oxymoron to some. But when it comes down to a house full of kids – you and your spouse included – contemporary furniture options can be the most resourceful and resilient, while keeping younger kids safe. Functional coffee and side tables with rounded corners. Microfiber, leather or new-age material couches to combat stains and dirt. You’ll find comfort in this new era of form and function.
WALLPAPER?! GET OUTTA HERE
Seriously. Wallpaper’s making a comeback, and for good reason. It offers drama to a room without clutter. It’s a conversation piece that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. And with new printing and material capabilities, it can be whatever you want it to be. Go ahead and add some drama to your life.
