Modern Accents in Unexpected Places
A gorgeous designer chandelier in the closet? Eye-catching wallpaper behind the shoe storage? Yes and yes. These are just two of the ways that Dallas design consultants behind A Well Dressed Home are revitalizing their clients’ spaces. The key is to add a touch of excitement where you’d least expect it.
Decor at Your Door
It seems there’s a monthly club for everything from fashion and makeup to kids and dinner. This is the year to try a monthly subscription for your home. Check out TheBouqs.com to get sustainably grown floral arrangements (your choice of blooms) delivered to your doorstep from around $40 a month.
Black Stainless Steel
In the 1950s, cherry red was the color for kitchens. In the 1970s, it was avocado green. Then came a wash of black, white, silver … and now black stainless steel. There’s a major movement now towards sleek, sophisticated black appliances.
If there’s one truth about mirrors this year, it’s that they’re looking more and more fabulous. A simple square or rectangular mirror works just fine, but the trend now is to spring for a mirror with style. Try placing a uniquely shaped mirror in your guest bathroom or entryway to add a pop of modern flair.
Rebirth of the Formal Dining Room
In years past, the trend was to transform the dining room into something hip and cool like a studio or even a kids’ playroom. The tides have turned and the trend now is to use that formal dining room for its true purpose: dining.
A Digital-Free Living Room
No TV in the family’s central gathering place? It’s a trend that many Dallas-Ft. Worth homeowners are jumping on. The reason for unplugging is that it allows families to reconnect the old-fashioned way — by sitting and talking with each other. Leave the TV for the media room.
No matter which design ideas you decide to run with this year, the most important thing is to make it your own. Feather your nest in a way that makes you happy and comfortable. And if you need a little help making it all come together, the Dallas area is full of professionals with an eye for design. Check out this list of the best designers in Dallas.
