There are really many different styles of home decorating.

It is not a one-size fits all art.

The traditionalists usually have the cozy, comfy & warm decor where those who prefer the contemporary are more into clean lines and minimal furniture.

But there are always a few who combine both.

It has been said that color trends come and go. So if you never got around to decorating with grey, you are in luck.  If you’ve noticed,  each decade seems to have it’s own style and colors and they are starting to collide.

The coming trends seem to be tribal patterns and the colors black, white, and caramel together with organics.  Orange and red are back as well as accent colors.  Gold and brass are entering once again to make a bright appearance in your home.

I never thought it would reappear, but avocado and gold leathers, carpets, and wall colors are slowly making a comeback. Still, when I look at the pictures I am not convinced. We will see if it really happens.

Black and white interior design has been around for such a long time.  It is a top trend that will never go out of style. No matter how colors fluctuate with time, these two basics in particular will always remain classic. Add a touch of brass or elegant silver and voila, you have elegance.

For the traditional-style homes, oversized furniture is coming back as well. We are seeing very large comfy sectionals and multiple sofas and chairs with heavy wood tables. If you have never gotten rid of your bulky furniture you will be right back in style. Recovering your sectional  in new trendy colors and patterns is popular for those living the traditional lifestyles. Splashes of color will also be popular to combine with the the neutral colors tones.

The Contemporary-style homes usually are more of an open concept with medium or dark wood floors in the living spaces, multi-colored walls and even wallpaper.  Marble and quartz countertops are popular in homes where kitchens have white and greys on the walls and the retro contemporary furnishings.

Choosing natural colors in the materials of tiles and flooring will stand the test of time. Colorful trim and decorative finishes like glazes will warm your home and display a personal preference that meets your own lifestyle.

So, during the time off work when celebrating with family, take your quiet times and grab a warm throw and sit by the fireplace and dream of the warmth of Spring and visualize the plans for your home.  Spring is just around the corner … and remember …
