Ideal Trends For the Fall and Winter

An emerging aspect of the choices people make these days while doing home makeovers is the social trends, particularly on social media. It is possible to have a look at your favorite celebrity’s bedroom or living room when they update their Twitter and Instagram or even Facebook photo portfolio. Not to mention that there are apps that can help you in making some of the decisions as well. So what does this mean? Well, it means that you can replicate a home decor style from a celebrity who has probably hired a pro and leading interior designer and paid for it with hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars.

Interior Design Styles For The Cold Seasons

So how do you decide which trend to go with? A myriad of factors is involved ranging from the size of the space you need to work on, or just picking a trend that will be easier to shift from. Some trends are not easy to move on from because of the investment incurred and at times these are recommended to individuals who can simply just sell the house with this interior design style or decor along with the house as a furnished space. By this, we are referring to using rare pieces of art and sculptures worth a lot of money. If you want to emulate such styles particularly for the fall/winter but on a budget that doesn’t involve Picasso paintings and gold sculptures, then some accessories include:

  • Glitter
  • Retro Graphics


Glitter means shiny and you can achieve this modestly without commissioning a well-polished bronze sculpture that requires your attention every other week. This means a metallic finish or marble surfaces. If its accessories, then a vase with bright colors plus glass coffee tables that might be slightly ornated with reflector glass to some degree. The point is to have bright or glass surfaces that are reflective so that even modest lighting in the room exudes a beyond average glow.

Retro Graphics

A million-dollar painting can transform even a meek yet dusty space into a sensational attraction because it increases the worth. Take for instance art galleries that are set up in make-shift warehouses that tend to attract even the wealthiest of clients. Sometimes all it takes is simplicity. Therefore, if you have taste in fine art, then graphics on linen, geometric shapes on towels, and simple pictorial prints dotting the walls will grab everyone’s attention and they might not even notice any flaws around.

Home Office Design Ideas

Whether you are looking to set up a home office or revamp your existing one, a few pointers can help transform your space. An ideal home office is a quiet separate area in your house that accommodates everything required to work. Working on your dining table, couch, or bed may not give you the best atmosphere suitable for work. For this reason, working on a dedicated working space will go a long way in ensuring a permanent solution for all working from home obligations.

Home Office Layout

It is advisable to set up your office away from the rest of the room. This means that your furniture should face away from other things in the room where the office is located to minimize distraction by staring at random things in the room. This arrangement aims to give the office user more focus while leaving space to accommodate other office essentials such as a chest of drawers( for storage.

Choice of Furniture

What furniture to use largely depends on the amount of space you have and the budget you are working with. If on a small budget, use furniture pieces that you already own. This can then allow you to set money aside to get better pieces in the future slowly. An ergonomic chair is recommended for workspaces, especially for users who spend a lot of time sitting down. The workspace table should be of good height for comfort, retaining good posture and ease of typing or writing.

Color Scheme

While there is no limitation as far as the color scheme goes, a more neutral color palette is recommended for an office. This is because neutral colors appear to be less noisy or distracting than brighter colors. There is also something about a minimal office that creates a formal environment best suited for work. However, based on individual preference, incorporating color in your office space is allowed. To get the best of both alternatives, you can maintain a neutral color scheme then add a few accent pieces to break the monotony; this can be a colorful chest of drawers, a plant or a piece of wall art.


If the office is not in a dedicated room, using a rug can demarcate the office area. Rugs also add warmth and comfort, and depending on shape and size; they help bring a balance and symmetry to the space.
