6 home dé­cor trends to make a style state­ment

The Catoosa County News - - WORSHIP DIRECTORY -

Is your home dé­cor start­ing to feel a bit stale? Spruce up your in­te­ri­ors with some of the hottest home de­sign trends for 2018 -- from cus­tom­ized cozy to nat­u­ral tex­tures to retro touches.

Here are some stylish ways to in­cor­po­rate new trends, from one of the na­tion’s most soughtafter celebrity in­te­rior de­sign­ers, Taniya Nayak.

1. Cre­ate an Oa­sis: Make your home a trop­i­cal es­cape all year long. Add flo­ral or ba­nana leaf ac­cents to form a stay­ca­tion­wor­thy “at-home par­adise” no mat­ter the tem­per­a­ture. Nayak sug­gests pair­ing pops of metal­lic gold with plush greens and crisp white to build a look that is so­phis­ti­cated, yet fun and ex­otic.

2. Keep it Sim­ple: In 2018, Nayak en­cour­ages DIYers to “go big or go home…in the sim­plest way imag­in­able.” An easy way to ac­com­plish this is to paint your base­boards, trim or win­dow mul­lions a dra­matic con­trast­ing color, like black against a white wall, for an ef­fort­less, yet pow­er­ful ef­fect. And when it comes to achiev­ing clean, sharp paint lines, one of Nayak’s vi­tal, go-to tools is a pre­mium painter’s tape, like FrogTape brand painter’s tape that de­liv­ers the sharpest paint lines pos­si­ble. Treated with patented Pain­tBlock Tech­nol­ogy, FrogTape is a fool-proof way to get pro­fes­sion­al­look­ing re­sults and elim­i­nate the need for touch-ups.

3. In­cor­po­rate Nat­u­ral Touches: This trend is all about na­ture’s tex­tures -- think wood grain, geodes or ocean waves. One way to in­cor­po­rate this look is to com­bine earthy tones like browns, beiges and deep blues with vi­brant neon col­ors to gen­er­ate the ef­fect of the north­ern lights around the home.

4. Get Back to the Fu­ture: Give what’s old a mod­ern, fu­tur­is­tic up­date to achieve this trend. Try paint­ing a vin­tage chair with a pop of color, like the Sher­win-Wil­liams 2018 color of the year, Ocean­side, a com­bi­na­tion of rich blue with jewel-toned green. This cre­ates an eye-catch­ing mas­ter­piece that seam­lessly in­te­grates into both retro and mod­ern home dé­cor. In­tro­duc­ing bright col­ors to an­tiques pro­duces a beau­ti­ful new spin on a clas­sic look.

5. De­sign it with Love: What’s “in” in home de­sign this year? Cre­at­ing warm and cozy spa­ces that are cus­tom­ized just for you. This is the true essence of DIY. Paint­ing an ac­cent wall in a pas­tel color, like laven­der, will set a re­laxed and com­fort­ing tone in the room. From there, add per­sonal pieces like a soft wo­ven blan­ket, a macramé wall hang­ing or ivory plates on a wall to trans­form any room to “your” room.

6. Em­brace New Eng­land Prep: This style em­braces the time­less com­bi­na­tion of crisp white linens and navy blues, but what re­ally gives a room an au­then­tic New Eng­land vibe is the ad­di­tion of camel-col­ored leather dé­cor ac­cents. Nayak rec­om­mends adding mono­grammed pil­lows to a leather ac­cent chair, or white­wash­ing your brick fire­place to cre­ate a look that never goes out of style.
