With the end of lockdown on the horizon, get your home ready to impress guests with fantastic interior designs. We’ve all been in the same situation during lockdown and grown tired of the same interior designs. Here, we’ve listed the 7 top upcoming designs for some inspiration in your own home.

Luxury Cottagecore

Cottage styles have been on trend for quite some time; however, in 2021, it is expected for cottagecore to deviate slightly into a luxury feel. People draw to cottage styled interiors because of the comforting feeling it produces, although, over the last year, people have been getting bored of this style and are looking for something new.

There is no need for a complete overhaul of the design. Instead, incorporate modern luxury and abstract pieces, including wall décor and lighting, to modernise the look to the traditional wooden cottagecore style.

Traditional furniture arrangement

It’s undeniable that it has been a long year of isolating from friends and family; in 2021, we’re expecting to see rooms arranged in a more traditional format centred around a common focal point for conversation.

In the past, many homes have focused their design around the TV. However, this year we’re expecting many to be facing their sofas separated by coffee tables with TV stands in separate locations. A traditional format, this approach is fixated around symmetry but can quickly be modernised through using modern sofa design, coffee tables and abstract wall décor.

Snug Spaces

Everyone needs their own space to unwind and settle down either after a long day at work, relaxing at the weekends or just for some time to think. We’re seeing a rise this year of people investing in snug spaces for their home, for that relaxation time which they so desperately crave.

Contrary to belief, this doesn’t just for people with large homes to benefit from, and your snug space can be created in several rooms around the house, including bedrooms, homemade offices for lockdown or even the kitchen.

The great thing about these rooms is that they can be decorated with your style and preferences and what you need to relax, whether it be neat and tidy with cushions, blankets and a book or artistic with sketchbooks and pictures.

Houseplants

This isn’t necessarily a new trend for 2021, but it is one of our favourites. With social platforms including Instagram and Pinterest flooded with images of houseplants in different forms styled around the house, indoor plants can be vibrant, calming and decorative throughout the home.

However, in 2021 we’re expecting houseplants to be incorporated into furniture design more seamlessly, with hanging plants and pots aligned with your interior design.

Relaxing Bathrooms

At times, we all feel stressed and designing your bathroom with a calming atmosphere can dramatically improve your mood and provide that much-needed relaxation. Adding soft bathmats, candles, and calming coloured furnishing paints such as creams and blues influences the bathroom’s mood, ensuring a tranquil environment for baths and homemade spas.

Integrated Storage

As with the houseplants, we’re expecting internal storage to be better integrated with designs. Pieces such as bookshelves, coffee tables and TV stands will need to function with more than their primary use and help minimalise trinkets around the room and provide a seamless and continuing design throughout the home.

In having storage like this, you can flow aspects such as colour, houseplants, books, and trinkets equally throughout the room, bypassing feature pieces and having a holistic interior design.

Statement vases

Vases can function a lot more than just for plants and flowers; they can also add to a room’s aesthetic design. Whether opting to choose for a subtle or abstract design and pattern, vases can either function as a feature piece using bold colours as contrasts or matching tones to the room to accentuate flowers or plants.

Alongside statement vase patterns, ceramic vases are equally on the rise with deviating away from traditional glass or crystal ones. This is primarily due to the rise in natural tones in interior colours we expect coming up this year.

Finding the perfect sofa is life-changing. A sofa that is the perfect fit for your home and family will hold memories -good and bad- for years and years. From movie nights, nail-biting football games, living room forts, and don’t forget all the nights with dinner in front of the TV because you can’t be bothered to set the table. All hosted from the seat of your sofa; it’s inevitable that as the years go on, your sofa is going to age with you.

Typically, a quality fabric sofa lasts between 7-15 years, depending on how many muddy pawprints and slobbery fingers you have wandering around the house. However busy your household is, we’ve got a couple of tips to make sure your fabric sofa sticks around for as long as it can.

Here are our top 6 tips for keeping a fabric sofa clean.

1 Vacuuming

Vacuuming your sofa often gets overlooked. We vacuum carpets and floors to keep them tidy and the same principle applies to the fabric sofas.

It’s the exact reason so many vacuums have additional add-ons such as brush and crevice tools to remove debris for the sides of sofas. It’s essential to use these tools rather than the primary head as these can scratch and rub the fabric leading to tears, wears and other damage.

2 Cushioning

Blankets and cushions aren’t just for comfort; they are also great for protecting sofas. There are a few options for going about this, depending on your interior’s style and design. Try using contrasting blankets and cushions on your sofa can create a feature piece whilst protecting your sofa.

Alternatively, choosing similarly coloured blankets to your couch can allow you to tuck them in to protect the sofa’s cushions.

3 SlipCovers

A washable slipcover is excellent as it helps to keep your sofa clean and protected yet can be easily put on/removed for cleaning. These typically come in two separate forms, one made out of flexible fabric pieces that encase the base of the couch and cushions or one made out of thick material that can be placed over the seat and stays in place.

The former tends to be a lasting solution, whereas the latter is great for temporary usage for babysitting or kids-parties.

As slipcovers are removable, it’s easy to take them off when you have guests around. 

4 Positioning in the room

With fabric sofas, it is important to remember that they can often be very easily scuffed or damaged; therefore, positioning your sofa in the right place is crucial for keeping it clean and intact.

This includes keeping it away from doorways, which may scruff the sides and not placing furniture such as baskets or side tables too close that may also scruff when moved.

You should also remember that the sunlight can make sofa colouring fade in patches. It is important to invest in good blinds or curtains if the light can be too harsh in your location and save yourself having to reupholster your fabric sofa.

5 No Eating

One of the main causes of dirt and mess on your sofa is often caused by food, especially if it’s messy and greasy, and it’s these stains that tend to be the hardest to get rid of. Therefore, try to avoid this by eating at a dining room table, breakfast bar or coffee table, or put on your slipcover before you sit down to eat.

6 Get to stains quickly

Sometimes stains are inevitable, your sofa is most likely going to endure a few in its lifetime. The best tip we can give you is to get to stains as quickly as possible to remove and treat the sofa from permanent stains.

7 Ways to clean fabric sofa stains?

This is a loaded question because the way you should clean, and what you should use to clean a stain on a fabric sofa depends entirely on what type of fabric your sofa is made out of.

We suggest that you look at the tag of your sofa before deciding what to use to clean your sofa. Before you go at any stain with any liquid, make sure you have vacuumed the couch so that you are not rubbing in any extra dirt or debris.

If you’re still unsure of what your fabric your sofa is, the safest option is taking a teaspoon of washing-up liquid, white vinegar, baking soda and warm water and mix together into a lather (the mixture should froth up as the baking soda and vinegar react with one another). Then, apply directly to any stains or smudges that you can spot on your fabric sofa. Leave to dry out for around 10 minutes.


Keeping a sofa clean not gives it a longer life but can also improve you mood. Studies show a clean home can lead to a positive outlook, and it’s also important for you to enjoy your space to relax at the end of a long hard day.

When renting or buying a smaller place than you’re used to, it is important to maximise your space through your interior design. We’ve outlined 6 simple tips for ensuring maximum space, or at least appearance, no matter the size of your home.

Painting Neutral Colours

Neutral colours in the home are great for giving the appearance of larger rooms. Painting a room white or even cream produces the illusion of a clean, larger space. It’s a tested method; estate agents often use white photographs to sell properties.

Maximising Light

Alongside neutral interiors, maximising natural light is important as it illuminates the interior and can further provide an illusion of a larger interior.

Create Rooms

Especially in an open-floor design, it is helpful to corner off space for specific purposes. Using furniture, including sofas, is excellent for achieving this; placing them in the middle of the room can separate living spaces with an office or dining room.

It is important for continual design throughout the areas using similar tones and themes with slight deviations. This differentiates the rooms whilst continuing to give the appearance of a large space.

Functional Storage

One of the main reasons you want to maximise your interior is the lack of space you’re experiencing. Opting for furniture with functional storage is an excellent way for reducing multiple pieces of bulk storage whilst still getting the design and function you want. A great way to achieve this is tall bookshelves; not only will these store books but can also hold baskets, trinkets, photos and plants.

When you paint with a neutral theme, hanging wall decor is a great way to bring colour and the room’s overall theme together. Neutral paints can highlight both monochrome images or bold feature pictures.

It can be a slippery slope from designing a home with the intention of maximising space to becoming overly cluttered and the reverse effect happening; it becomes smaller and cramped. Our top advice to stop this from happening is to plan your interior and stick to the design; if you do stumble across pieces, it’s okay to incorporate them, providing they help in maximising the rooms.

Are you looking for the best way to set up your home office? Whether you’re a remote worker due to the pandemic or your job gives you the luxury of working from home, it is always nice to have a space to help you feel more motivated. 

With a new year, you might also want to upgrade a few pieces in your home office as you strive to hit your New Year’s resolutions. You might be wondering what types of furniture your home office needs. 

Be sure to keep reading for our complete furniture buying guide and learn how to furnish your home office so you can feel productive and motivated. 

Start With a Desk

When you think of home office furniture, the first thing that comes to mind is a desk. You want to make sure that you get the right desk to suit your work needs.

Hopefully, you already have your dream home office desk in mind. If not, we have a few ideas to help you. 

There are tons of different home office desks to choose from at a variety of price points. For example, if you’re looking for a minimal style home office, you can pick a desk with few drawers or without any drawers at all. The modest style of the desk will look sleek and put together in any home office. 

If you’re looking for something a bit more practical and want more storage space, get a desk with more drawers. You might even want one that has overhead storage space. An L-shaped desk is another option if you feel like you need more surface area to do work. 

You Need a Comfortable Chair 

Our office furniture buying guide wouldn’t be complete without a comfortable chair. You need to find a chair that you will feel comfortable sitting in for eight hours or more a day, depending on how long you work. 

How do you find a sufficient office chair

First, you can look for one that will help to support your lower back. Sitting for long periods without any support can cause strain on your spine, which can lead to long-term problems. 

You should also consider how high and low the chair can go as this is a huge factor. Sitting comfortably at your desk means that your feet are flat on the floor with your thighs horizontal. 

The seat material is another factor you should consider when picking out your office chair. Having enough padding will make it more comfortable for sitting during your workday. 

While some people forgo armrests to get a more aesthetically pleasing chair in their home office, they can be essential to making your chair more comfortable. You’ll find that your elbows and arms need to rest while you’re working and typing. 


 Additional Storage

Another item on our buying guide for furniture in your home office is additional storage. There are so many items to choose from to amp up the storage in your home office. Deciding which one is right for you is up to the style that you’re trying to achieve. 

Most people won’t need the basic filing cabinets in their home office, but other large cabinet options will do the trick. These cabinets will make your home office look more put together and aesthetically pleasing. They will also hold all your important papers, extra office supplies, and anything else you need to tuck away. 

Shelves are also another option for storing and organizing your essential office items in a sleek way. You can get a wall of shelves, or you can hang them over your desk or in the corner of your office. 

Floating shelves look stylish, and they’re a magnificent way to organize all your office belongings. You can even add tiny decor pieces to spice up the look a little bit and add some fun to your home office. 

Improve Your Lighting

An essential on our home furniture buying guide that most people forget about is the lighting. No matter where you are working from, you want to make sure that the lighting will suit your needs.

Having good lighting can help you to get more work done and stay productive throughout your day. Especially if you don’t have the luxury of natural light, you’re going to want to consider your options for lighting in your home office. 

Whether that means improving the ceiling lighting, buying a desk lamp, or getting a new floor lamp for the corner of your home office, the choice is up to you. Do some experimenting and see which option will work best for you in your home office space. You might find that you want to change all your lights for something new.  

Extra Seating

If you have the luxury of a larger home office and are expecting clients to come and see you, you’re going to want to invest in extra seating. Your extra seating won’t need to be as comfortable as your home office chair, yet it should still serve a purpose for your visitors. 

Stylish chairs can work for this type of seating. It will look nice for the clients that come and see you, as well as when you’re alone in your home office. 

A small couch or love seat is perfect for this type of seating as well, especially if you don’t expect many clients to come to your home office. You will still have the option for them to have a seat, but your office will look cozier and put together with this seating choice. 

The Complete Furniture Buying Guide

As you can see, there is a lot that goes into furnishing your home office so you can make it a space that will make you feel motivated. Be sure to use our furniture buying guide to get all the pieces you need. That way, you will feel comfortable but also inspire you to be productive in your new space.

Since the cost of moving is high, many in the UK are choosing to update their current home instead of moving. You might be asking yourself, how can you update your home for a new look?

In this article, we’ll dive into some of the best dining room layout ideas to maximize your space. Sit back, recline, and read on as you’ll explore how to make a comfortable, spacious, and fashionable dining room area.

1. Inviting Dining Room

If you’re one who likes more of a traditional look and are tight on space, then this layout will work well. You’ll have your table, chairs, and storage area.

This minimal layout will create an open and modern feel. Use a mixture of finishes and materials to make it your own.

For example, you can combine a grey and black rug with grey chairs and a white table. Your storage space can be wood for a mix of colours in the space.

Ensure that you have plenty of lighting with this space. Incorporate table lamps and overhead lighting. Whether you’re looking to help the kids with homework or have a dinner party, this space is multi-functional.

This layout is great for those with children. Choose darker colour fabrics if you have younger children who are more likely to spill items.

2. Elegant Dining Room

Do your hallway and dining room meet? Consider maximizing the space by having a long rug horizontally, wood shelving, and then tan/grey seating. Consider shelves on the walls to make use of the space.

Have a tan carpet that goes over the wood falling. For a modern backdrop, consider a fireplace wall.

3. Maximized Windows

Consider floor to ceiling windows for your elegant dining room. If you have a home near the coast, consider a cottage style feel.

Have a wooden table and chairs for the dining room. Instead of a square or rectangular table, consider a round option for smaller spaces.

4. Classic Dining Room

Older homes tend to have lower ceilings which can make your dining room feel smaller and cramped. Instead, consider pushing up the ceiling’s height and have the doors and windows that are higher as well.

Even if you and your partner like different styles, you can incorporate them together in this look. Choose custom rugs, Italian antiques, hand-painted wallcoverings, and silk scarves. Don’t be afraid to choose plum accents with marble flooring.

5. Passing Through Dining Area

This is ideal for living and dining room combinations. First, pick a round dining room table in a large open area of the room. Ensure that the chairs you choose aren’t touching each other.

If the space is large enough, you can place a couch off to one side. For the rug underneath the table, choose a round rug to blend with it.

Table Shape Tips

When you go to choose a dining room table, keep your dining area’s space in mind, along with how many will use it. For example, will you be entertaining often and need plenty of space?

You’ll want a long rectangular table. Or consider a table with a leaf where it extends out further.

Where To Place My Table?

You don’t want your table in the way of traffic flowing in and out. Measure the area and ensure that there’s plenty of space between the walls and table. Consider placing a table underneath a light fixture, in front of a wall, etc.

Rugs

Adding a rug will increase the design and layout of the area. If you have children or pets you might want to choose an easy-to-clean option. Choose a patterned rug that’ll hide any stains or crumbs.

Ensure that the rug is long enough so that the chairs don’t catch when they’re pulled back. If you use a leaf, measure the table and rug when the table is at its longest.

Dining Room Trends

Bringing in the new year comes new fashion such as fancy chandeliers. This will give your dining room space a luxurious and sophisticated style. You can choose from various materials such as glass, wood, steel, metal, etc.

Modern Design

You can combine modern with luxury for the newest fashion statement. Choose accent elements such as metal and round light fixtures. You can also choose eye-catching textiles or gold metal.

Use of Colours

Keep in mind that the colours you choose for your dining area will determine the mood of it. If you’re looking for fresh designs, choose a brighter colour than the standard neutral options.

Try out bold colours with different textures. You can make bold contrasts by using fabrics and colours together that are unique. For example, earthy tones with purples.

Decorate Your Walls

Don’t forget to decorate the walls of your dining room area. Choose wall art pieces that define you and your family. Choose pieces that either have a design aspect, or that remind you of fond memories such as travel.

Avoid Distractions

Since you’ll want to encourage conversations in your dining room, ensure that it’s a private space that won’t be too noisy. Choose a space that’s intimate, but has enough room for everyone.

IF  you’re in the midst of making your house a home, it’s time to introduce yourself to today’s most trending furniture.

Let’s face it, we’re spending more time at home than we ever have. In April of 2020, nearly 47% of people in the UK reported working from home as a result of the Coronavirus. As the outbreak has continued to climb, the number of professionals working from home has only increased.

We’re cooking at home, we’re relaxing at home and we’re working our 9-5 job from the kitchen table. With so much time stuck inside, what better time to redecorate our homes and curate a happy space?

This is why a growing number of homeowners are choosing now to focus on replenishing their homes. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your entire home or a single room, there’s no time like the present.

So, what’s hot and in-demand in the year 2021? Keep reading to find out! We’re sharing our guide to the most trending furniture of the year and providing a much-needed dose of design inspiration!

1. Floor Lamps

Perhaps one of the most significant furniture trends in 2021 belongs to the lighting department.

In 2020, homeowners turned much of their attention to pendant lighting. Nowadays, floor lamps have overtaken the lighting world and are becoming the go-to source of lighting for today’s homeowners. Not only is this a simple way to illuminate a room, but a floor lamp can also act as an attractive furniture piece or even artwork.

In terms of design, we’re seeing anything from modern and Scandanavian to industrial and loft-friendly. In place of a traditional lampshade, bulbs are often exposed or cylindrical.

2. Multi-Functional Furniture

In today’s day and age, our most trending furniture is all about serving a dual purpose.

In outfitting our homes, we’re looking for furniture that doesn’t only look great but also functions well. This is where multi-function furniture comes into play. After all, 2021 is all about designing a home environment that is both comfortable and practical to our daily lives.

For this, we’re looking at simple pieces of furniture that have the ability to transform into something else entirely. This could be, for example, a dining table that transforms into a shelving unit. With this, the goal is to create the most usable space possible.

3. The Minimal Desk

In addition to spending our leisure time at home, we’re also learning the art of how to work effectively from home. As a result, many home dwellers have taken to set up a home desk.

To save space, the desk’s of today are significantly more compact and minimal than a traditional desk. We’re seeing desks omit extras features such as drawers and compartments in order to take up less room. Instead, we’re sticking to quality materials such as wood and focusing on a setup that is clutter-free and minimal.

4. A Serving Trolley

In the past, serving trolleys were typically an outdoor fixture used predominantly in cocktail parties.

Nowadays, we’re all about bringing the great outdoors in. These serving trolleys are often placed in the dining room and are the perfect host to a liquor collection or a natural habitat for houseplants. This is also a great space for coffee table books, flowers and family photos.

Drawing on some mid-century modern inspiration, today’s most trending serving trolleys are outfitted in natural wood, black metal and a timeless bronze. We’re also seeing a growing number of serving trolleys embracing soft curves and resisting the angular design patterns of 2020.

5. Chic Rattan Furnishings

Of course, we were introduced to all things rattan last year.

As we inch into 2021, it’s clear that rattan furnishings aren’t going anywhere. While the specifics may change, it’s clear this is one trend that’s here to stay for the long-run. Here in 2021, the rattan that we so enjoyed in 2020 is embracing an ever-so-slight change.

Rather than emitting a bohemian vibe, the rattan of 2021 is seemingly more chic and elegant. We’re seeing rattan present itself in high-end hotels, contemporary design and sophisticated restaurants.

Rattan is a simple way to add texture to your space whilst also adding an element of warmth. At the same time, rattan has the unique ability to add a taste of chicness to any room without feeling overbearing. We’re predicting rattan to present itself in anything from light fixtures and headboards to dining chairs and planters.

6. A Bold Sofa

In 2021, it’s all about playing with colour in your living room.

When it comes to choosing your sofa, don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colors and playful patterns. Here in 2021, we’re all about outfitting your living room with a sofa that’s going to pop and draw in some eyes.

So far, we’re seeing plenty of bold colours such as mustard yellow, olive green and vivid red. In terms of texture, homeowners are turning their eye to bold materials like velvet, vintage corduroy and natural wool.

7. Natural Bedroom Linens

When it comes to the bedroom, homeowners are growing to be more serious about their linens.

Progressing into 2021, we’re seeing a shift to the natural world in terms of our bedsheets. Homeowners are now more interested in investing in high-quality threads that are suited to enhance their nightly sleep rituals. To achieve the desired 7-9 hours of sleep each night for adults, homeowners are getting serious about their beds.

In terms of coloring, we’re seeing an upturn in neutrals such as beige, ivory, taupe and grey. As per materials, bamboo, organic cotton and linen are topping the charts. At the end of the day, the goal in 2021 is to create a bedroom that feels natural and warm with a touch of luxury.

Today’s Most Trending Furniture

Whether it’s for your kitchen or your bedroom, staying up-to-date with today’s most trending furniture is always exciting.

This is the best way to curate a home for yourself that feels both on-trend and timeless. In turn, you can look forward to spending your days in a home that feels personal and makes you happy each and every day.

If you’re like most people, then you’re looking for any excuse not to get out of the house during a weekend or weeknight. The only problem is that when your home lacks expression, you’ll find any excuse to escape the bland layout of your property.

The secret is in the home decor. If you cater your decor to your ideal home style, then you’ll never want to leave your perfect paradise. Using some trendy home decor can help you capture that.

See below for an in-depth guide on home decor must-haves that will make you never want to leave the house.

1. Mix up Your Pillows

Who said that your couch pillows and bed pillows all have to match the colour of the object they’re set atop of? One of the trendiest things in all of the home decor right now is to combine different aesthetics for all of your pillows.

For example, if you have grey furniture in your living room and are going for neutral colours only, then you can shop for white, black, and grey pillows to use.

Not only are the colours allowed to be different, but you should try to shop for different patterns to incorporate as well. Using the same example, finding white pillows with grey polka dots or grey pillows with black lines will make your space look more spontaneous.

It shows everyone that steps into the room that you’re up for whatever the night calls for. Your living room can be a place to watch the big sports game, throw a party, or cuddle up to watch a rom-com.

2. Choose a New Coffee Table

Unless you’ve been given a coffee table that’s reached “family heirloom” status or was hand-made for you by a loved one, they can always be replaced. In fact, switching up your coffee table can create an entirely new vibe for the living room.

If you’re looking for more places to set things in your living room, then you might consider a black marble side table that pairs nicely with the centre coffee table.

For those of you looking to switch things up from the typical wooden coffee table, consider shopping around for a geometric gold-plated coffee table for a modern look.

Many experts encourage homeowners to view their coffee table as the “centrepiece of the floor layout”. This means that the coffee table you choose has a direct correlation to the feel of the entire room.

Think through what vibe you’re hoping for your living room, then find a coffee table design that matches those same principals.  You can find the 7 best coffee table presentations you have to try here. 

3. Capitalise on Wall Space

Some of you enjoy using the walls of your home to flood them with pictures, paintings, macrame, and so forth. Others of you want to leave them as blank as possible to avoid overcrowding the room with details.

Truth be told, there’s a balance that needs to be struck between the two. The key is to distribute wall objects of different sizes to maximise the space without overcrowding it.

For example, if you use the same 8 x 10 picture frame for every photo you hang on your bedroom walls, it will look too uniform and bland. Try mixing things up to create a more exciting aesthetic.

Consider switching up the items as well. For instance, you can hang a rug on your kitchen wall near the dining table to cover blank wall space. Then, you can distribute smaller photos throughout the walls of your kitchen to capture the precious moments.

You might also consider creating an accent wall in your living room and filling it with photos and portraits, leaving the other walls completely void.

4. Find a Unique Armchair

Modern interiors have reigned supreme on the glossy pages of magazines and curated social media feeds. Sleek lines, clean designs, and interesting features all draw people to the modern aesthetic.While these rooms look designer, achieving the style is much easier than you think. Modern furniture can fit into any home because the modern aesthetic blends well with other styles.

Combine any style with modern to create a unique look for your space. Here are some modern furniture ideas that will freshen up your space.

Something Colourful

One of the misconceptions about the modern aesthetic is that it uses no colour. White interiors with accents of grey and black are not the only way to express a modern design. In recent years, adding colour along with the clean, modern look is trending.

Everything from pops of colours to rooms full of hues can still boast a modern aesthetic. You can add colour with little touches throughout the rooms like in art, area rugs, or an accent piece of furniture. Or go bold with colour in every piece.

To choose colourful modern furniture, pick out pieces with clean lines and interesting shapes. Then choose the colour in your desired pallet. Lush jewel tones and muted earth-inspired colours are trendy ways to incorporate colour into your space.

Metallic Pieces

Metallic accents go well in all modern designs. Not only do they add some colour, but they also provide an interesting texture that breaks up matte colours. Treat metallic pieces like accents that add a pop to the room.

You can incorporate metallics in a variety of ways. Smaller accents little decorative objects and hardware that will stand out in a subtle way. Or you can go bold with large metallic accents like mirrors, coffee tables, and lighting.

Metallics are a great way to add interest and personality. Complement your colour palettes with silvers, golds, rose quartz, and coppers.


Stylish Storage

Cabinets, chests, and credenzas; whatever you call them, you should incorporate stylish storage options into your space. Storage is important because not only does it add a unique design feature, but it keeps the rest of your room looking spotless.

Use the storage another way to bring out your modern design plan. Keep the clutter out of sight and the rest of the room looking show worthy. The top surface of your storage is a great place to display accents, table lamps, and decorative objects.

Storage is important in every room of your home. So feature a stylish storage piece everywhere you can.

Cosy Accents

These accents are what makes a home feel lived in. They’re the difference between a showroom and an actual home. Cosy accents are pillows, blankets, and area rugs add texture and personality to the room.

In a living room, you’ll want to add cushions and pillows and throw blankets to make the space feel warm and inviting. Decorating your sofa with these accents not only add a design detail but also keeps them close when you want to cuddle.

You definitely want your bedroom to feel cosy so winding down from your day is easier. Think lush bedding like cotton sheets, soft wool blankets, and an abundance of pillows. To keep the modern aesthetic, try playing with trendy colours and interesting shapes.

Bold Sofa

One of the most popular design details in recent years is bold sofas in vibrant pops of colour. Lush greens, jewel-tone blues, and pale pinks are three colours that have reigned supreme in many lounges.

The best way to get the most out of these bold colours is to allow it to stand out and be the focal point of the room. These coloured sofas shine best when they’re the brightest item in the room. This means making everything else a little more toned down.

Bold sofas are fun and a great way to bring colour into a modern design. Just be sure to stick to an overall colour scheme, so the sofa doesn’t feel out of place.

Mood Lighting

Lighting is never something you should overlook or leave to the last minute. It is just as important as the rest of the design as it can set the mood of the space. What’s the point of having a low key romantic night if your lighting doesn’t convey that?

In order to portray different moods, you should have a couple of options for lighting in the room. A good place to start is having a table lamp, a floor lamp, and an overhead light. This allows you to mix and match, creating the perfect lighting for your space.

Chandeliers and lamps are another great way to bring modern style into the room. For a modern look, find designs with clean lines, different angles, and interesting shades.

Statement Legs

It may not be something you focus on for long, but choosing a coffee table with statement legs can make a big difference in the room. If you like to mix the modern aesthetic with other styles, a coffee table is a great place to feature that combination.

You can go modern and nature-inspired by bringing in natural wood tones. Or modern with a bit of glam by utilizing metallics. Or go classic modern with simple, chic lines.

Finding the right coffee table can be a challenge because it should complement the other furniture in the room. But just because it’s meant to be an accent, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have design features that make it stand out.

Modern Furniture You’ll Love

Your home can look like the magazines by choosing a few modern pieces to freshen up your space. Implement these design ideas when choosing modern furniture, and you’ll see a near-instant transformation.

By choosing a few key pieces, your home will look professionally designed. And because modern furniture can complement any style, your space will look personalized. Give your home the makeover it deserves with new modern furniture.

The season of apples, and leaves, and cosy sweaters is upon us. With fall right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about fall decorations and aesthetics that will make your autumn home a cosy sanctuary.

Don’t know where to start? Read on to learn about ten great furniture themes to embrace fall this season.

1. Farmhouse-Style Fall 

If you’re into the rustic theme, cozy up your house with a farmhouse-style theme. An easy way to embrace the fall farmhouse look is to get to work on your front porch.

If you don’t have one already, consider investing in a rustic-style rocking chair, add some throw pillows, and a cozy throw. 

All you’ll need are some pumpkins and mums, and your fall porch will be ready for many cozy chats and rocks. 

2. Mid-Century Autumn Home

Do you love the mid-century furniture vibe? If you’re struggling with how to make your house autumn-ready while staying on theme, there are lots of great options for mid-century fall. 

Add warm colours, soft fabrics, and easy accents that embrace fall. 

There’s also the option of adding vintage Halloween pictures into some of your mid-century frames for a little extra spookiness. 

3. Boho Fall Decorating Ideas

A perfect way to incorporate fall into your home is by adding warm colours to your furniture. The top 2020 autumn colours are red tones, golden hues, olive green, and even blues. 

One of the quintessential boho styles is to add ottomans and pouffes to make your home one that makes people feel comfortable to lounge. Incorporate a new piece that has a rich golden tone, or an olive green. 

Add throw pillows in those tones to your already existing furnishings. With a boho decorating theme, the more pillows the better. Throw in a few fall scented candles, and your cozy, boho house is ready for the leaves to change. 

4. Autumn Cottage Theme

Cottages are already cozy spaces, just add the newly changing leaves, and your country cottage will be your ultimate sanctuary this season.

Fall is a time when the beauty of nature abounds, so consider bringing nature into your autumn cottage decor. Display autumn produce like squash and gourds. You could also bring in Indian corn, apples, pears, or colourful leaves. 

5. City Chic Fall Theme

Are you looking to spice up your chic city apartment with some seasonal decor this fall? Most tiny apartments don’t have a front porch, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get into the seasonal spirit.

Create the ultimate fall centrepiece. No matter how small your apartment is, there should be a space on a table or a mantelpiece where you can create a gorgeous fall centrepiece. 

When it comes to the centrepieces, think outside the box, and move beyond just flowers. You could include local fruits or vegetation, in addition to the flowers. Include all the colours of autumn. 

The great thing about making a centrepiece with things other than just flowers is it will last longer, bringing the joys of fall to your dining table, entryway, or mantelpiece for weeks. 

6. Trendy Blue Fall Theme

Hues of blue are on-trend in 2020. Furniture, accessories, wall colours, you name it, blue hues are making their debut.

If you’re looking to add some trendy hues of blue into your fall theme this year, read on for some fall decorating ideas.

  • Pumpkins in shades of blue and green look fabulous if you want to move beyond the traditional orange pumpkins. A couple of pumpkins with a natural hue of blue include the Blue Lakota and the Blue Max pumpkin. 
  • Decorate your door with a gorgeous blue fall hydrangea wreath. 

7. Minimalist Autumn Home

In today’s world, less is more. People are embracing more simplistic design and with it the trend of clutter-free, mid-century style.

How do you achieve that cozy, autumn-feel in your home without adding clutter? Believe it or not, it makes a huge difference to just switch out one thing.

For example, if you don’t want to create a whole new fall mantelpiece or shelf, don’t take everything off your shelf. Only replace one item. For instance, switch out spring and summer greenery with one simple pumpkin. If florals aren’t your thing, keep all your couch cushions, and replace one throw pillow with a fall colour or design.

8. Bold and Beautiful Fall Colours

Fall is all about colour, and it’s the key to having a gorgeous autumn home. If you’re looking to be bold, embrace brilliant reds, oranges, and yellows as your colour-palette.

Adding a bold, red accent will make a neutral room pop. Red throw pillows, table cloths, or napkins can all make an impact. If you’re looking to add more natural decor, add apples in a large bowl, or a vase with branches and berries.

You can’t go wrong with a pop of spectacular fall red.

9. Fall Florals Galore

If you don’t want to add any new furnishings or accessories, you can always add to your fall space by incorporating all the best seasonal flowers

September is the perfect time for roses to grace your fall floral arrangements. In October it’s the time for dahlias and ridolfia segetum, which go lovely together. 

Sometimes, festive florals are the only decor you need. 

10. Spooky Fall Theme

Let’s face it, one of the most fun parts about the fall season is the fun and spooky nature of Halloween, or All Hallows Eve. 

If your home has mid-century furniture or classic furnishings, spooky fits easily in. Add a skull, or a large goblet, even some fake spiderwebs, and you’re ready to set the spooky mood for a fun-filled Halloween time.
