    Places for peaceful retreat

    Do you know the feeling of being overwhelmed by digital devices? Then this trend is for you. People massively carve out cozy, more intimate places in their homes as sanctuary-free vehicles.

    The most obvious place for such a trip - of course the bedroom. Surround your sleeping space with canopies or lace curtains hanging from a decorative wooden beam. Drag a comfortable chair into the corner to read your favorite books, or hang a hammock inside with a layer of soft blankets.

    What could be more soothing than velvet? The fabric looks luxurious and welcoming in the fall and winter, and also in combination with coarse natural textures (how about artificially aged wood and wicker baskets?).

    With smooth metals and ceramics, she adds visual interest and tactile comfort to the room. If you do not dare to fork out on an elegant armchair with velvet upholstery, then instead sketch velvet pillows for an expressive velvet mood.

    Woven texture

    Do not underestimate the expressiveness of woven textiles and the accents that they bring to the room, especially in the cold months. Hang flat baskets for focus on the wall, place the plants in woven coasters, or replace your lamp with a hanging woven floor lamp.

    Again, combine the rough texture with a soft velvet or with knitted wool and throw these accents on a smooth metal table, mirrors and ceramic details.

    Return to the old and cozy classics may appeal to lovers of comfort and those who do not want to part with their favorite things.

    In the new season, down comforters will be especially appreciated, as well as all sorts of cozy and soft bedspreads that will be casually draped over the bed, as if luring them to wrap themselves up. Designers offer a cozy home choice of blankets with elements of manual labor in the traditional or modern style.

    Forget the country house in white and gray colors! This season will be relevant dramatic note in color. Designers announced all the cozy shades of black as the main color of 2019-2020.

    For those who are not ready to go completely to the dark side, there is another deep color that also comes back - this is a chocolate brown tint, as the best way to bring some luxury to the decor. Designers advise to change the light cushions for this rich shade and carelessly scatter them around the rooms.

    Unusual bedding

    Try something more exciting this season than white sheets. Today, completely different patterns that can be combined with each other are relevant - experiment with monograms and monograms and do not be afraid to combine them with other patterns.

    This trend is gaining momentum and will soon become widespread. In addition to bedding, the expression of the style will be the bed with upholstered headboard, which has an important effect.

    White interiors

    Interior designers are gradually moving away from white and gray shades, increasingly preferring warm, rich shades of brown, black, green and powdery.

    Of course, this does not mean that you urgently need to remove marble countertops - they are timeless. And a few marble touches here and there can be beautiful. But in general, the trend with marble is gradually moving away. Instead, choose some terrestrial materials, such as wood, clay, and metal with a worn finish.

    Copper Home Accessories

    Like marble, pink gold and copper seem to have completed their course. Do not panic: your real copper lamps and copper sink will always be in style. Here we are talking about overly brilliant, obviously fake domestic accents that have flooded the market in recent years and that are starting to look outdated. Instead, the trend is now moving toward classic aged brass.

    Do not put a lot of emphasis on copper accessories.

    Furniture sets

    Instead of buying the entire set, people are now mixing and assembling different sets for a one-of-a-kind image. There is also a trend towards the departure from modern furniture to the style of the mid-century.

    Ideas for the visual expansion of space

    Forget about the top matt black walls, unfortunately, this is not an option for small-sized.

    Better use light colors on the walls and on the floor. Soft shades make a cramped room more visually spacious.

    Light walls for a small apartment

    1 Hang mirror

    Place a mirror in front of the window and it will reflect light into the room, making the space more airy. The bigger the mirror, the better.

    2 Add more metallic accents.

    A flickering lamp, lamp, or other object with a reflective metal surface will have a similar effect as a mirror, reflecting light and brightening the space.

    3Install the mounted shelves

    They offer ample storage space, while at the same time not burdening the interior and not forming bulky as from wall-mounted or bookcases. You can even swap your bedside cabinets for hanging shelves.

    4Visually enlarge windows

    This effect is achieved with the help of curtains, if they are installed not directly above the windows, but under the ceiling - this effect visually makes the window taller. The same trick is used to visually increase the width of the window, if you hang curtains a few centimeters wider than the side panels.

    5Align the color of the curtain with the walls.

    Curtains that merge with the walls create a solid line, which makes the room much larger.

    6Select compact furniture

    Choose furniture that is suitable for a smaller space - good, today even the traditional bulky chairs have been replaced by soft club chairs, which have a narrower width, so you can get the same cozy look without saving on space.

    7Select air parts instead of fundamental structures wherever possible.

    For example, instead of a solid wood table, choose a transparent acrylic table or with an open metal base.

    8 Think Storage

    An easy way to keep a small room free from confusion is to choose furniture with storage space for items, such as a coffee table with a shelf below, a bench with bins under it, and an ottoman with a removable top and empty space inside.

    9Make your furniture mobile

    Buying furniture on rollers - or independently equipping them with rollers - allows you to easily rearrange parts as needed, be it a chair, a table, or a kitchen rack.

    10 Decorate rooms with plants

    Greens make even the smallest space more fresh and easy. If you do not have space on the floor, try hanging pots with flowers.

    11Use open boxes

    This is another new trend in the world of interior design, which is indispensable for small spaces. Hang your jewels on beautiful boards with hooks to clear the valuable space from the drawers in the bedroom. The same applies to the kitchen when it is necessary to clean the space from small parts.

    12 Move furniture away from walls.

    Even a few inches between the wall and the back of the sofa can make the living room more open.

    13. Add vertical stripes on walls or curtains that visually lift the ceiling and make the room taller.

    Do not be afraid to mix materials and textures, experiment on a tactile contradiction - such as rough and smooth, cold and warm, hard and soft. Return to menu ↑ back to menu

    Each apartment has those tiny areas that we tend to ignore and leave empty. Especially if you live in a small space, you will not want to miss these five possibilities in order to ennoble living spaces.

    In the corners of the room

    Even in the corners of the room it is possible to place some additional shelving. If you are a tenant and do not want to install corner shelves, consider a hinged rack in the form of stairs.

    Along the narrow corridor

    Many apartments have a long narrow entrance corridor. While this space can be a problem for decoration, the key is the choice of objects that mimic the long narrow shape of the corridor to create dynamics. Fit flat wall shelves elongated and long rugs (especially appreciated with sparkles).

    In the bathroom

    The fact that your guests do not see this space does not mean that you should not bypass it or try to personalize it. Hang the plants that love moisture and get a shelf that is installed right on the bath - use it for your favorite little things.

    On the windowsill
