Decorating Trends That Keep Going

Decorating trends are a lot like fashion trends. What is cool and in today may not be so favoured tomorrow. Many a times the trends you set out for in advance are gone by the time you get there. But then there are the timeless classics. The design and decor trends those seem to defy age, just keep going forever.

A look through a glossy design magazine can give you all the inspiration you need. There are all sorts of ideas floating around the blogosphere at any given time, but some things are just too good for the generation to let go of. Here are some of these timeless design trends that just keep on going.

Bookshelf Decorating

Books by colour

This idea is a little offbeat, but it works so wonderfully that you’ll be surprised at how effective it is. Books arranged by colour can add to the way the bookshelf and the room itself looks. Not only does it make it a lot easier for visual thinkers like myself to find a book when we need it, but it also brings a certain sense of harmony to the place.

Decorating with Luxurious Sofa

The Luxurious Sofa

Sofas have always been very utilitarian and minimalistic. They don’t jump out at you in a room or stand out in any of those pictures in the glossy magazines. But that’s only because it isn’t done right. A massive and very luxurious sofa can help you project the room as comfortable and cosy. It goes a long way towards turning a room into a liveable quarter and is one of the most resilient decor trends ever invented.

Decorating Wallpaper

Wallpaper

Although the style and texture may have changed, wallpapers are as timeless as anything on this list. The different shades and playful designs that are now available are a modern twist on this traditional wall covering and that has helped the trend survive all these years.

Dark Walls

A darker tint on the walls will make the room look nice and cosy. The darker shades absorb more light and if contrasted with the right set of furniture, could really work well.

Rug Decoration

A Beautiful rug

What better way to liven up your floor than to lay a nice and soft rug on it? The more comfortable types of rugs and floor carpets will help your room look much better. And, the best part is you don’t really have to splurge on it in a big way. Yes, some rugs are very expensive, but there are economical options available if you look for them closely.

Decorating with Small Plants

Small Plants

Plants in the garden are a mainstay, but putting them around the house is a very charming design feature. It’s one that everyone is fond of and most offices have small plants all over. Putting them in the house is a great idea if you know how to take care of them well.

Colored Curtains

This design trend is still going and has been going almost as long as full length mirrors or frenches windows. Coloured curtains are available in all different shades and can play with the sunlight like no other object in the house.
