MANILA, Philippines — After years of saving up and investing wisely, you are now prepared to settle down in your new home. Yet it is incomplete without truly modern interiors that not only address your needs but also express your taste and character.
With countless design trends, however, you might be wondering which could be best for your first abode. We trimmed them down to five choices for you:
Putting nature-inspired Greenery, the 2017 Pantone Color for the Year, to a space in your home can be very refreshing and revitalizing. It was also hailed by color experts as a “life-affirming shade” amid a tumultuous era.
Splashing Greenery in your home can be a bold one, though, so remember not to overdo it. Instead of painting an entire wall green, for example, you can add a modern wall fixture in that shade. Or rather than getting a chunky Greenery sofa, get a more neutral piece that can be paired with Greenery throw pillows.
Designers and buyers are seen to move away from the DIY craze of past years and ride the artisanal wave, according to Elle Décor. The Manila FAME, for one, features handmade creations of emerging and established furniture designers.
Add unique, handcrafted items especially those with organic shapes and natural fibers by artisans to give life to commercial pieces that are easier to find.
Vogue predicted marble and metal themes to dominate this year’s design trends. Don’t be intimidated by the price of marble because faux finishes are available in the market.
Apply this aesthetic to bathrooms by putting a marble sink with a brass faucet, or draw eyes to a marble coffee table in your living room.
Want chic interiors? Bohemian could be your pick. With this theme, you can use a broad palette, apply a variety of patterns and juxtapose seemingly mismatched pieces. Forget minimalism, style and creativity are key.
Boho-inspired décors can include colorful dreamcatchers, brightly painted dressers, embroidered bed covers, vintage finds and fairy lights hanging from the ceiling.
It’s not just about how the place looks, but how it feels. Texture is a perpetual design value that completes the sensory world that is your own house.
Texture may involve “material manipulation” of elements in your home, such as pleating of fabrics or employing big stitches, Elle Décors suggests. You may throw textured pillows over smooth, leather couches. Also check out furniture made of faux fur, velvet and mohair.
