Beige/Greige Home Decor and Paint Colors
Dare I say it…beige is back, baby.
Maybe not quite like it was 15 years ago but you will be seeing more and more beige making it’s way back into homes. This trend is starting off as greige which you probably are seeing plenty of already.
When you aren’t quite ready to go full on beige, you start off small and go greige.
Sometimes you just aren’t ready to break up with gray and that’s ok.
Some people might never want to look at a beige paint color again. And some people might never want to look at a gray paint color again.
This is where greige will have it’s moment in the sun.
Greige paint colors are very popular right now.
it won’t be long though. I can feel it in my bones. Beige walls will be popping up soon again.
I’m seeing more and more beige furniture popping up too.
Wallpaper isn’t anything new and has been trending for a few years. The new trend with wallpaper this year is to go big. Not big in scale but big in money. Wallpapering the whole room (cha-ching) and not just an accent wall is what is happening this year.
I can’t say with much certainty but accent walls aren’t the most popular anymore like they once were.. BUT when it comes to wallpaper, I feel like you can get away with an accent wall of wallpaper.
I could also be making this up since I just wallpapered an accent wall in my daughter’s room.
Now I know many people are afraid to add wallpaper to any wall in their home, but you really shouldn’t be.
Wallpaper has come a long way…in both design and application. Peel and stick wallpaper is very popular. It can be a tad bit pricey but well worth it for the ease of installation. I failed to take my own advice and used straight up unpasted wallpaper for my daughter’s bedroom.
Never will I do that again..
Installing that wallpaper is what nightmares are made of.
Do yourself a favor and just get peel and stick wallpaper. And once you are sick of it, you can just peel it right off.
Vintage (inspired) Art
Art and wall decor have always been tough for me in the past. I found myself using more and more mirrors to decorate my walls because I had no idea what else to do.
Not anymore. I jumped on this trend hard. I did a whole post on where to find affordable art here.
It might be hard to find true vintage art. But finding vintage inspired art is as easy as making mac and cheese.
There are so many online shops that offer vintage reproductions at such an affordable price. You can print the art at home or have a print sent to you.
One of my favorite online shops for affordable are is Nordic Wall Decor. I have purchased many prints from this shop.
Cozy (Cottage-ish) Decor
Days of stuffy and uncomfortable furniture are gone. The lived in look is not one to shy away from anymore. Texture, texture and more texture is the name of the game.
Casual and comfortable furniture, natural fiber rugs, textural decor, and (ideally real) plants can make your home feel cozy. Go ahead and toss that blanket on your slipcovered comfy couch…and then throw on some fluffy pillows
