No contemporary room is complete without wall art. From photo gallery walls to intricate metal pieces, wall art can feature some of your favorite items. Geometric shelving is one way to not only decorate your wall, but display knickknacks you love in a unique way. Even better, you do not have to break your budget to incorporate contemporary designed wall art in the home. There are many DIY options that can fit your budget and your style.
When it comes to color, think bold. Not only will turquoise and green colors remain popular as they have been, but various hues of bright pink will reign. Also, subdued colors such as sage green, barn red and mocha brown will increase in popularity. And do not be surprise to see close to neon colors being used for outdoor furniture. From lime green and vibrant orange to a shocking Caribbean blue, these colors will add instant energy to an outdoor space. And, who would have thought wallpaper would make a comeback. Well, it has and will continue to be a great way to add a bold pattern to a room without adding expensive artwork.
While living green may not exactly be a new trend, it is one that is here to stay. Now that people have become more educated on how little things can greatly and positively impact the environment, homeowners will continue to be drawn to recycled or reused products for the home. And, homeowners have learned that LED lighting, eco friendly light bulbs and other simple swaps are worth every penny in the end.
To make the most of these suggestions, it is important to play with them ahead of time. Moving large furniture over and over is time consuming and exhausting. It will most likely end with frustration and the perfect placement may never be agreed upon. Avoid this disaster with a sheet of graph paper and some furniture cut outs. On a piece of graph paper, sketch out the shape of a room with a defined scale, for example, every one inch on graph is two feet in the actual space. After the room is outlined, marking all doors, windows, and other points of interest, create models for your furniture pieces from construction paper using the same scale.
