How To Incorporate New Trends Into Your Home

Another year has gone. The industry trade shows are over, and the home improvement shows are starting. Every new year introduces new design trends, and 2007 is no different.

This year has truly introduces some innovative ideas that combine Oriental and retro styles, effervescent colors, and patterns that are guaranteed to create a strong emotional impact on anyone who enters the room. Forget buying a $5 000 chair to impress your boss. This year’s theme is about renewing the ‘hearth and home’ feeling, without actually going back and bringing forward the designs, colors, and motifs of our childhood.

The newest trend is DIY, Do It Yourself. Hand made furniture, accessories, and walls are the ‘new’ sophistication. This year’s decorator does not need to invest in a professional designer to create the room right.

Floral art is important, but it needs to stray away from the bold prints of the English Country style and take on a more Oriental look, full of earth and natural colors, muted pastels, and Oriental shapes or lines.

DYI home decorators need to avoid the temptation of going overboard and create a tropical or Feng Shui design. The new trends can blend some of these factors, but they should never dominate. The focus is on furniture not art, walls, or lighting.

The most important decorating skill that DYI decorators need to develop is the ability to mineralize. Home decorators who grab this year’s theme and overpower a room, or home, with the one design will have a home that is ‘out of style’ within a year.

The best way to incorporate themes into a home is to choose those elements that speak to your emotions and lifestyle needs. Then, add a few pieces or wall treatments. This lets home designers update their home each year, keeping their home up to date.

Home decorating themes build on each other, year after year. Remember the deep coppers and burnished gold tones from 2005. Take these elements and dry brush a deep plumb over them, or sponge a rich gold brown fabric paint to the trim on drapes, furniture, or lampshades, and you’ve updated your accents and artwork to match the new design.

One way the home owner can bring the 2007 trend to their home is by adding grasscloth to walls, instead of wall paper. This heavy weave type of wallpaper is not for everyone. It looks like colored grass, woven and pasted to wall paper. This means that seams will remain very visible. The lines can overpower a room, so they are best for a smaller area.

If this is too much, then adding wallpaper with a silk sheen and mottled pin stripe, will bring the 2007 theme to a room, without creating a home decorating blunder that is difficult to remove. One way to prevent this is by finding a short wall, and use a single strip to turn the wall segment into a piece of art. This can be done on a full size wall, dividing the wall into strips. However, before doing this, make sure you learn the technique well.

One last tip, never install the ‘Real McCoy’, hand painted silk panel wallpaper. Do not even use the local wall paper company. Phone around and ask for someone who has already installed silk wallpaper. Silk wallpaper is totally unforgiving. It is not sold in rolls but panels. If one panel is ruined, then the whole wall needs to be replaced, at a cost of $1 7 000.00.

However, if you wait until March, the market will release paper wallpaper that mimics the Oriental hand painted, or embroidered, designs.

Save Big Bucks On Home Decorating

More people decorate their homes during the fall and winter months than at any other time of the year, and with good reason! We spend more time indoors, we owe it to ourselves and our families to create a comfortable place to be! Here are the best ways to save BIG bucks on your home decorating

Start with plan. I know you’ve heard this before, but having a plan doesn’t necessarily mean you know exactly everything you want to do in your rooms ahead of time. What it does mean is having a starting point to keep you in the ballpark, and that will save you A LOT of money in mistakes in the long run. So start with the three things you need…Color, Style, and Formality. Color is easy…if you don’t already have a color scheme you love, find one in a book or magazine, and borrow it! Still unsure? Pick your favorite color, plus white, never fail combo. Style? Maybe you know you love Country Farmhouse. Or maybe you like a little of everything! That’s ok, just make sure you give the room style a name that includes the feeling you want in the room, and that will keep you on track. For instance, I have a Fresh and Sunny Cottage Room for my family room. (I use sunny as a feeling as well as a visual clue!) Keep the feeling in the name, and you will pick the right style every time! Finally, formality. Know if you like a more formal room, where things on both sides of the room match, or a more informal feel. So my family room description would go something like this…I want an informal Fresh Sunny Cottage style full of soft blue, green yellow and white. So every time I buy something, I know if it doesn’t fit in that description, it doesn’t fit period!

Look for alternatives to everything!!! Flat sheets on sale are a great buy…I can get one at my discount store for $2.89. A flat sheet is generally 66×96 inches…that’s over 3 yards of fabric for less than 97 cents a yard! Can’t beat that, and flat sheets come in so many colors. When in doubt, buy white! Use them for tablecovers, curtain panels, making comforter covers, throw pillow covers, or even casual slipcovers! If you find a great color, stock up during a white sale…you will always find uses for fabric that fits into your color scheme.

Look for furniture at yard sales and in the classifeds. You can get quality furniture this way for a fraction of what it would cost you new. Learn to make do with the furniture you have with the art of disguise. Slipcovers, paint and floor length tablecloths go a long way towards dressing up an otherwise forgettable piece of furniture. By the way, you can paint ANYTHING these days! The trick is to use a specialty blocking primer before painting…I recommend KILZ Original. Yes, you can even paint that ugly laminate bookcase or computer desk! All your furniture mismatched in style and form? Paint it all one color, and it will help marry and unify your furniture grouping. (I love white or black for furniture, depending on the style of your room.)
