Kokomo Home Stager Shares Favorite Trends

Vintage Wonders

Social media has cut the lifespan of trends in half. When it comes to home décor, the last thing you want to do is invest the money into a home improvement project if it is going to be considered “outdated” in a year! Below is a list of my favorite “trends” because they don’t seem to be going away:

  • Vintage Wonders- These pieces are so unique that they become a conversation piece that you can be proud of. Maybe it is a piece that has sentimental value to you, or maybe you found something at a garage sale that you fixed up. “It’s the curiosities that make a house a home and keep your guests asking: ‘Where did you get that?’”1
  • Interchangeable Accents – While I love color, once the paint is on the walls, it usually stays there for at least 5 years….usually more. My point is, be sure to pick a color that you know you will love for a long time. Since today’s culture seems to change things up more often than in the past, it is better to opt for a versatile neutral base and use big-impact accents to easily change their decor. Think “greige wall color” and “chevron print area rug or window treatments”.
  • Timeless Style – You can’t go wrong with a Transitional Style. Transitional style is often described as a balanced blend of traditional and contemporary, or as the new classic.
  • Open Concept – It seems to be on everyone’s wish list when looking for a home. The open concept idea maximizes their ability to gather and relax with friends and family.
