The look of rich, decadent style, vibrant colors, and living spaces that actually look liveable are increasingly popular. You don’t have to spend a fortune to make your house feel like a lush getaway retreat. Use these decorating tips as inspiration for creating an elegant, extravagant living space that feels like home to you.
Metallic accessories always add a touch of extravagance to your home style. Chrome and brass are out; copper is the “in” metal for 2017, at least according to HouseBeautiful’s survey of Pinterest. For a look that shouts warmth and not industrial coldness, opt for the reddish tones and iridescent brightness of copper over dull, burnished metals. Consider copper and metallic mixes for accessories like lamps, vases, and decorative bowls.
Be careful not to go overboard with too many copper accessories in the same room, though. To add visual interest, mix things up by mixing copper in with other warm, bright metals. Try a touch of bronze, gold, or both.
3. Faux Finishes
If you love the look of marble but not the cost, marble wallpaper is a charming choice. For kitchens and bars, faux leather counters or engineered quartz countertops that mimic the look of marble are chic choices. For tile areas in the kitchen or around a fireplace, 2016’s subway tile trend has been replaced with tiles that mimic the look of wood. (They’re a lot more realistic than they used to be, so if you haven’t shopped for tile in a few years, you may want to take a look.)
