Chevron is Still Trending
One of the trends I am glad is sticking around for 2017 is chevron, especially black and white chevron. If you are thinking about using chevron in your decor, use it in moderation. For example, this bold vase is enough to pull off an effortlessly chic style in this room.
Dress Up Your Coffee Table
I can’t stress this enough how important it is to dress up your coffee table, the right way. I am not talking placing a group of knick-knacks on the table, there is actually a special formula when it comes to coffee table decorating. A group of large coffee table books, a vase, a candle, and a small figurine or exotic rock will get you that designer look we all love.
Bold is Better
Using strong hues like rose red, gold, black, and white is a smart way to make a statement in your space. To keep this unexpected decorating style flowing throughout the whole room, designer Erika mixed and matched textures and patterns. Just take a look at the spectacular styles of living room furniture she chose – a pure genius! The leopard printed curtains, velvet sofa, and zebra printed cowhide rug is makes us want to gush about this room all year long.
Sprinkle Small Accessories Throughout
An easy trick for a designer decorated look that you can do yourself is sprinkle small accessories throughout your space. On our coffee table, side table, bookshelf, anywhere there is an empty space. Volcanic rocks, small glass or mirrored boxes and luxurious candles can take your decorating to a whole new level.
