Get the decor trend absolutely right! 

Every one of us wants a beautifully decorated, trendy home, but not all of us get every trend right, in fact here are 11 home decor tends that you are definitely doing wrong!

Paint Color

Paint Color should give a vibrant look and feel to any room. Choosing a set of complementary colors for a room is definitely a good idea but don’t overdo it! An upper limit of three colors, with at least one neutral color make for a pleasing mix.

Accessories

Ornamental pieces or other accessories such as potted plants have to fit the size and complement the color of the room. Never overcrowd a room with accessories, instead create a spacious feeling.

Wall Paper/ Decals

Color and pattern of wall paper/ decals are very important. Large prints for small rooms give a crowded look while small prints in a large living room fade away.

Furniture Size

A delicate sofa with a large painting above or a large sofa with a small coffee table will look mismatched and ruin the entire look. Ensure furniture sits well in along space, size, design and style parameters.

Window Treatments

Hanging short curtains subtract from the look of the room, to make a room feel taller hang floor length curtains instead. The color and pattern of window treatments should blend with the other accessories in the room, the same goes for the curtain rod.

Color+Pattern

Rugs

Rugs need to relate to furniture placement in a room. Consider placing all the furniture in such a way that they either touch the rug or are placed on it, a floating rug can look out of place in a room.

Cluttered photos

Placing too many photos or artworks on a table gives a shabby look to the room. If you want to display many photos, organize them into a neat gallery wall behind a sofa or on a staircase wall.
