How to Decorate With Home Trends

March 23, 2024
Published by

If you’re currently building one of the custom new homes in Southwest Washington with us, or are starting to think about it, you’re probably also considering how you want to decorate your new home. It’s easy to fall in love with a variety of styles and on-trend pieces, but it’s important to think about what will remain fresh and what will quickly look dated. The key is to find your own personal style and choose your furniture and decor with care.

If you haven’t already started collecting images of decor that spark joy, start now with sites like Pinterest where you can make a board for each room or even more detailed, such as wall colors or throw pillows. Add whatever appeals to you without worry if they match.The key is to get this collection and then find any common threads, such as colors or styles. Once you notice these patterns, you can trim the list down to items that fit together and focus on finding other pieces to go with them.

Think about your lifestyle, as well. Do you have a collection you want to display somewhere? Do you like to start your day in a bright, sunny, cozy spot? Do you favor overhead lighting or lots of atmospheric lamps? Think about how you want to use each room and what will make it functional for you, as well as comfortable.

While it can be fun to go all in on various trends, you need to think about whether you’ll be happy with it over a long period and whether you can afford to redecorate when the trend is over and the room feels dated. Ideally, you want your home to be as timeless as possible, while still showcasing your personal style. You’re better off choosing timeless pieces, such as carpet, sofas, bed frames, and other large pieces that are expensive to replace. Use paint colors, throw pillows, rugs, and other more affordable decorations to pick up on the trends. 

As you start to decorate your homes in Southwest Washington, have fun with the process and consider some styles that may be bolder than you usually choose. Just remember that it should also represent your personal style, so if that means you want an orange accent wall with a yellow sofa, or you’ve always wanted a chandelier in the bathroom, go for it!
