As you begin to set your goals for the New Year to refresh your way of living, don’t forget to include your living space on that list as well.  It’s common to make changes with your physical activity, eating habits, and finances, but leave your living space in the exact same state it has always been. Giving your home a slight makeover can provide you with a better outlook on life and assist you with accomplishing those goals even more so.  Think of it like buying new workout clothes to motivate you to exercise more.  Switching up the Feng shui in your home can give you that same energy.  So, here are a few home décor trends to implement as you step into the New Year.

 

Change out that headboard with a Canopy 

Enhance the room you spend the most time in by adding a four-post canopy to your bed.  Begin and end your day in a picturesque oasis with only the slightest of change in décor.

 

Add a backsplash that pops

A bold backsplash speaks volumes in a kitchen that may lack a little flair. Add personality to a minimalist kitchen with touches of color and texture that peek through behind the cabinetry. 

 

Keep the white space and add a touch of color

All white spaces are still in, but the new addition to this trend in 2019 is including hints of color throughout the space using the 90/10 rule.  Take a blank canvas of a once 90% white room and add in 10% of color in the form of décor, pieces of furniture, or even an accent wall creating vibrant vocal points. 

 

Put down the paintbrush and add wallpaper

Pull in both color and texture to the walls in your home with the addition of agate wallpaper.  Agate wallpaper consists of an organic textural pattern that is sure to add depth to any room design.

 

Bring concrete inside the home

This year, concrete will make appearances beyond the driveway and inside of the home in a major way.  You can create a more industrial modern look with large forms of concrete in the form of flooring, walls, bathtubs, and sinks.  If you’re looking to add smaller touches of texture, add concrete pieces in the form of planters, shelves, and even candle holders that still make a statement.

 

Whatever trends you decide to revamp within 2019, be sure that they reflect your own personal style.  Leave a touch of personality in your living space and allow it to inspire you to proceed through the year ready to accomplish all of your goals.

Five Tips to Holiday Decor Organization

by Kelley

Holiday Decor Organization

We all look forward to enjoying the lights and Christmas décor around the holidays but if you decorate your home yourself you know exactly how long it took to properly place each and every little piece that made up that holiday magic. Now that the holidays are over, you’re probably dreading taking all that magic down not because you’ll miss it but because of the work it takes just to put it all away. What if there was a way to make the take down process easier and make sure everything is right where you left it for next year? Follow these five simple tips below for holiday décor organization and your holiday cleanup will become almost as incredible as the ornaments themselves.

 

Tip One: Use Clear Bins
This seems like a no brainer but you’d be surprised at how much time is saved by simply being able to see what goes in each bin.

 

Tip Two: Create Like Minded Bins
If you’ve been collecting ornaments for a while, it may seem like you’re drowning in decor from every color of the rainbow. Combine color schemes and specific themes. The cleanup may appear longer but you’ll thank yourself in the end and next year when it’s time to find a specific color.

 

Tip Three: Shop the Junk Drawer
Use little items like rubber bands in the junk drawer to secure ribbon or bundles of string lights. It’s a nightmare all on its own to untangle Christmas lights so avoid the hassle and separate them as you remove them using the items you already have. No need to shop for fancy storage reels.

 

Tip Four: Splurge Where Necessary
In the era of DIY it’s easy to find solutions that we can make ourselves at a fraction of the retail price but splurge where you need to.  For those ornaments that are sentimental or extra fragile, spend a little extra to properly store them in divided storage containers and save yourself the heartache of a shattered angel wing.

 

Tip Five: Label all the Contents
This might be another no brainer but labeling even if you’re using clear storage bins will make things almost effortless. Also be specific on the labels if you have more than one type of item in one bin.
Still seem like a lot of work? If so, think of it this way. Investing the time to properly organize this year is a small time investment to set you up for success for future holiday set ups and break downs. You’ll thank yourself next year when you realize searching through every bin for your favorite tree topper is a thing of the past.

 

Happy New Year!
