The Secret Ingredients To Getting Your Home On Trend

December 1, 2016
BOOKMARK

Ah, if only there were hard and fast rules for a home that's perfectly on fleek. Generally, contemporary homes are right on trend - a style that's basically what is in and popular right now, but with leeway to change according to trends as well as styles from different eras.

Here are some popular ingredients that when thrown in the mix will make your home a hit.

1. Ingredient: Lots of wood
Contemporary homes focus on lines and forms that are simple and sleek. While the wood elements create an artistic form that makes the home feel airy and expansive, each area has a focal point that tethers everything together.

4. Ingredient: A hint of Scandi-Industrial
Popular Industrial and Scandinavian elements can be found littered all over, from a floor decked fully in wood, to the black wire meshes and accents. To top that off, these homeowners added a centrestage window that's not only a stunner, but lets natural light flood in and open up your space.

5. Ingredient: A patterned statement, and a little masculinity
In a simple layout with a sophisticated neutral theme that’s hot right now - dark wood meets grey and beige - an eye-catching carpet, with a mix of patterns and prints will give your place a jolt of life. In the bedroom, a dark and black theme makes for a super cosy atmosphere.
