With almost everyone working from home these days, or at least spending a large chunk of their time at home, more people are taking up personal home renovation and redecoration projects to spice up their living space and make it more appealing, especially since they only have limited places to go to given the current restrictions on travel with the pandemic.
If this is you too, then you’re in luck because there’s a whole bunch of new ideas you can implement while redecorating your living room this year! In this article, we’ll go over some of the newest trends that are currently dominating everyone’s Pinterest boards and also take a quick peek at some of the trends which are just beginning to gain popularity and aren’t too overdone yet, let’s get started!
Cozy Curved Furniture
Right now, people are getting trendier with their living room furniture and are replacing their boring angular sofa sets with curved sofas which have a different aesthetic to them. Not only do they look cozier and more inviting in a living room space, but they also come with quirky designs and prints, if you happen to prefer those over plain sofa covers. You can also get yourself a customized sofa design on Livingcozy.com, which is a great option for people who love getting furniture that are unique and can’t be found in anyone else’s home!
Additionally, curvy armchairs are also making a comeback this year, so if you’ve always liked the way they looked in showrooms but didn’t have the courage to get one for yourself, this is your chance! Not only do they give your room an antique touch as soon as you enter it, but they’re also a great option for people who entertain only a couple of guests at a time. If you’re someone who likes having just one or two people over every now and then, having a couple of padded arm chairs beside your fireplace or coffee table to sit down and have a chat at is much more convenient than having a large sofa which you’re probably never going to use. At the end of the day, it’s all about convenience and you don’t have to invest in a sofa (or armchairs) you don’t need, simply because it’s the norm!
You may have a wall with ten paintings or photographs decorating the focal point of your living room, but gallery art pieces are being replaced for one large statement art piece. The beauty of having a large statement piece in your living room is that it gives the room a more put-together feel and also gives your wall a clean and sleek look. The best thing about statement pieces is that they can be customized to suit your taste in any way. For example, you can get a piece depicting a scene with a lot of intricate details, a blank piece with a monotone color that either matches or contrasts your walls, or an abstract piece with a splash of bright color. Whether you have a quirky home or a fairly minimal one, you’ll be able to find a way to customize your art piece to suit your aesthetic!
And yes, we’ve still not gotten over Victorian age homes and we’re once again falling in love with all kinds of wallpapers. People are replacing their accent walls with a wall that has wallpaper- that’s right, we’re not talking about wallpapering your entire room, just one wall of it! Of course, this may not work in everyone’s home, because if you have a minimal house, this may stick out like a sore thumb. However, if you feel like your room can do with a touch of color, consider using wallpaper instead of paint this time. The best part is that you can change your mind anytime you want and strip that paper right off the wall!
