Whether you are settling into a new place, or you’ve lived there for years, some things just need to be changed up every once in a while.
If things start to feel like an old hat, then there are plenty of ways to spruce up your place and make it a breath of fresh air. Keep reading for some of the current trends and home decor people are using to liven up their spaces.
It’s no secret that lighting can transform the mood of a room, and neon isn’t shy about changing the mood. Add some ambiance to your TV area or make a statement on your wall with some text or imagery. You could visit Etsy to shop for eye-catching LED decor.
If neon is too extreme for your taste, then LED light strips might make for more subtle accents to ceilings and countertops.
Perhaps you like moving around your apartment by sliding across the floor a la Risky Business. But to make sure you don’t fall, put a few rugs down.
Rugs are timeless pieces to include in your space. Find a vintage rug for a classic look, or choose something bright and bold with geometric patterns. Layer them if you have too many to choose from.
Already have a carpeted floor? Hang a rug on your wall tapestry style. Don’t forget rugs can be used as a sound barrier from neighbors too.
Indoor plants are the key to freshening up a living space, and boy, plants are definitely in right now! When deciding on a plant type, consider these three things first: the lighting of your space, the watering needs of the plant, and the upkeep it will require.
If you don’t have a green thumb, some of the more forgiving plant types include aloe vera, spider plants, pothos, and snake plants. Plants that will need a little extra care, but can be worth the work, are monsteras, palms, and fiddle leaf figs. Check out the Shadyside Nursery for a range of indoor plant selections.
Bring the museum into your own home with the addition of a gallery wall. A collection of artwork and photos is an easy way to boost the personality of your space.
Gallery walls can include anything from travel photos to colorful plates to mirrors. Visit one of the many local artists in Shadyside, or put your creativity to the test with self-made art using supplies from Brick Art Materials in Shadyside.
