When we think of painting and decorating our homes, we tend to think of the traditional solid color, with a few family photos. And, while these are still popular home decorating ideas, theres a whole new world opening up.
Walls no longer need to be subjected to the typical white, beige, and pastel color palates that have been popular for so long. Over the last decade or so, accent walls became a popular innovation. More recently, however, the realm of wall painting has really expanded.
Some of the more popular trends in wall painting include color waves (using at least two colors to make unconventional lines along your accent wall), abstract designs (similar to color waves, but involving shapes, rather than lines), and stripes. For childrens rooms, you could consider topographic designs, such as your childs first initial, or the alphabet.
And it doesnt just end at the walls, either. Another emerging trend is to paint your ceiling. This can be a complimentary or similar color to your walls, but it can also be something more complex and artistic.
Another popular trend is DIY photo displays or wall art. This means taking a collection of photos and exhibiting them on one wall within a room, or hallway. This works really great for a photographic family tree, or just family photos, in general.
Finding unique wall pieces is also a decorative option. But this is no longer restricted to paintings and rustic looking clocks. Check out antique shops, and farmer markets to gain access to an incredible selection of unique works that you can proudly display in your home.
While the addition of plants isnt necessarily an innovative home decorating technique, how you display them is. Now you can use a number of ordinary items, such as old wooden toolboxes, crates and/or pallets, or old tires to display the flora in your home.
But, its not just about the how, either. No, now you can find unique-looking plants and flowers (such as tropical varieties) to give an extra touch to the traditional bouquet. Did you know you can even grow trees from the food you eat? Avocado seeds are an excellent example of this, meaning you can have your very own avocado tree. Plus, having plants in your home helps with airflow and can even reduce dust.
These, of course, are only a few of the continuously growing options available to you. The fact that many are simple jobs, that you can do yourself, means you can explore a number of ideas, while adding a new look to yoClearwater New Roof
