We all want our homes to look inviting, comfortable, and stylish. After all, our homes are where we spend most of our time, and often they are a reflection of ourselves. Being able to be creative and express ourselves through or home decor is a way of making a house feel like a home.
With styles and trends changing so often, it’s hard to keep track of what’s new and fresh and what’s so last year. Of course, you’re free to decorate your house however you want, but looking at the hottest trends is a good place to start, and might just give you that spark of inspiration you’ve been needing.
Change up the lighting
Say goodbye to boring, conventional lighting and give your house an extra sparkle by using alternative light sources. For the bold, chandeliers are sure to make a statement. If you’re more lowkey, a candle here and there will add a homely touch and give each room a pleasant smell.
You can also opt for Edison bulbs or fairy lights if you want to keep your original lights and still add something new. If you want to really be adventurous, color changing lights or mood lights will keep you on your toes.
Redo your garden
Many people forget that their gardens form an important part of their homes. Having the inside of your home look great while the outside looks shabby is not the best look, so make an effort with your garden.
It’s easy to spruce your garden up with some new plants, water features, or planters. If you really want to be trendy, you can combine planters with pedestals for an entirely different look.

If you want to try something new, but aren’t ready to completely let go of your old style, try accent walls. By painting one wall in each room a bright color, you’ll be giving the room a completely new look without going too crazy. Accent walls are a great way of dipping your toes into the water when it comes to more adventurous home decor options.
The vintage trend has been making a comeback, and the possibilities are endless. From furniture to frames to cutlery – nearly any piece of home decor can be found in vintage shops. If you find secondhand vintage goods to be too pricey, you can always buy cheap new items and rough them up to give them a vintage look.
Vintage home decor is timeless and adds a certain classiness that no other piece could ever achieve. It fits in seamlessly with nearly any style and color scheme, and can turn an ordinary room into a sophisticated one without much effort.
