5 Ways to Incorporate Summer Trends on a Budget
With summer quickly approaching, there are a number of different home design trends that capture the season and offer refreshing accents and vibrant style. Although it can be an investment to redecorate, there are several ways to incorporate the top trends while sticking to a budget.
1. Create an Accent Wall
Wallpaper has officially made a comeback, but it can be expensive to add on all four walls of a room. Instead, the design experts at Unique Flooring San Diego suggest creating an accent wall. Choose a wall with a door or window and use an oversized pattern for a modern style that is updated and not at all overwhelming.
2. Incorporate Neon Shades
Neon colors offer a light and airy way to brighten up any room. Pillows are an easy way to go, or you can be bold and try curtains (make your own if you’re extra crafty) and complement them with a nice, bright vase, a few picture frames, or even a lampshade or two.
3. Add Brass Details
Brass details are both modern and on trend (did you ever think you’d hear that?). Rather than buy accessories new, scour flea markets for discounted gems like brass candlestick holders or lamp bases.
4. Salon-Style Walls
Cluttered and eclectic walls will be a hit this summer and are easy enough to do on a weekend. Use a template or ruler to draw on the wall and map out where each frame or mirror will be hung. Use a combination of both, as well as a variety of different, but coordinating, frames to create an eye-catching display.
5. Deep Blue Shades
Going nautical is a great décor option for decorating newbies. The basic color palette is easy to mix and match, and nautical-themed items are easy to find. Consider painting the ceiling, the lower cabinets of the kitchen, adding a blue and white area rug, purchasing a set of blue dinner plates, or upholstering your headboard.
