Calm Home Workspaces are Simple Solutions
These days most careers mean working from home. Therefore, the home office is a focal point and priority to update in 2021. Both Elle Décor and Joanna Gaines’s suggest we add natural elements to our work areas, which create a calming effect. An organic environment helps with creative and motivation. Natural elements can include wood desk or chair, a fountain, or some type of live plants. There is also growing popularity for rattan rugs or woven rugs to give your space a warm, cozy feel while you stay productive. Whatever you find, if it is earthy, place it on your desk or somewhere you can reflect when you are drifting. You might get even MORE done!
‘Greige’ is the HOTTEST Color for 2021
Greige or the mix of Grey and Beige is the hottest color this year. Performance is soft and alluring wherever you use this paint. However, the finish can be tricky if not careful. To avoid a designing faux pax, match the difference between cool and warm effects. We want to make you aware, different shades either harmonize or may not match. Mix these delicate blends of color to make the room harmonize, and clear of clashing. For example, if you use a cool greige on cabinets, then add warm greige for accent pieces, they go together nicely. What makes the warmer and cooler look off is when the two colors (warm & cold) are next to each other. Try it out before committing is a good rule to live by.
Green is More than Eco-Friendly
One of the best things we can do for our homes and the planet is to become green-friendly. Although this may not seem like a home decoration, switching to all-natural and organic house cleaners, using smart home technology, and storing food in re-usable containers can make this year less toxic for anyone willing to try. I am certain many of you are welcome to having a healthier lifestyle no matter what that means. Start small and build from there. Try adding smart light bulbs or recycling. There are a ton of ways to achieve an earthy home by just looking around. Not to mention, many of our smart home technology makes it easier with timetable lighting, and managing interior temperature. Make 2021 your year to become environmentally sound.
Comfy Seating with ‘Plushery’ Chairs are Welcoming
We are seeing many of today’s homeowners are finding their living rooms a calm haven. In some of our mountain properties, the dwellers enjoy a room dedicated to the view. One idea everyone seems to enjoy is the plush seating placed in front of the window for you to sip and lounge in peace. Big, fluffy oversized chairs complement the rest of the minimalist décor. We also find furry pillows, blankets, and accent pieces to play a major role in providing a comfy seating space for serenity and relaxation. Do not worry about mixing and matching patterns and textures. You will discover an environment with an eclectic atmosphere where you might lose yourself for hours.
In Wall Fireplaces are More than Hot
In-wall fireplaces are trending in many of our Northern Colorado homes. We have seen the cabinet depth styles in living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms! These well received appliances sink into the wall rather than protruding and are smart pairing with an app on the cell phone. One place you will find is common, for these fireplaces would be in a finished basement. Consider using the space under the stairs to mount one.
Family Farmhouse and Rustic Trends
Two styles that continue trending are the family farmhouse and rustic genre. However, interior designers seem to lean toward a more subdued place choice minimizing gadgets and decor . Think more white and organic style without as much metal. Mix in the antiques with modern and you get a stunning yet versatile result. This is a style that seems to stick around for the moment and considering the popularity in Colorado homes, we think it’s here to stay awhile, too.
Chalk Paint will Surprise You with All Its Uses
Chalk paint is like a wonder drug for decorators. There are dozens of uses from vases to furniture, making an excellent resource or material to use for updating the home. We have seen people resurface kitchen cabinets, refinish antique picture frames and DIY mason jar containers. This product is simply amazing with endless uses if your mind is open. Basically, whatever you can imagine, chalk paint can do. Well, almost. I urge you to try it and let us know what your results with the projects you tackle. By the way, chalkboard walls are still cool!
Winter Outdoor Spaces
Weather this year is warmer, and pretty mild for snow. Therefore, many of us can still tolerate time spent outdoors. (Something Most of Coloradoans Love to do) For Spring, consider building a covered loggia for your outdoor living spaces or creating cozy seating with a firepit or other heating elements. Patio and deck spaces are in high-demand for home shoppers bearing some logic. When you live in a place as beautiful as Colorado, why wouldn’t you want to be next to nature? Consider how to winterize your backyard so you can use it year round. Heaters and fire pits can do the trick, but it won’t keep the wind off. Try to enclose an area to block the elements and don’t forget to snuggle up with a pleasant drink and a blanket.
Hardware is Making a Statement in the Kitchen and Bathroom
Hardware is important for the kitchen and bathroom. Fixtures create personality and character in these rooms and provide function. Consider adjustable and large sink faucets for making cleaning and cooking a breeze. With the bathroom, Moen, Mooni and Delta offer heights up to 8” or more, making them more ADA compliant. Also attractive, the higher the faucet, the easier it is for kids to get a sip of water. Consider seeking bathroom fixtures with bold color to make an instant statement or immediate transformation.
Wallpaper Takes over Shiplap
For the last few years, shiplap or recycled materials hung on the wall have become less in demand. Wallpaper has made its comeback, which seems to be an alternative to repurposed wood. Unlike your grandmother’s wallpaper screaming with vintage flavor, you can use today’s wallpaper in a variety of rooms. A good application can make a boring room full of fun and excitement. Try it.
From the famous greige paint finishes to outdoor living spaces, homeowners are having a good time with renovations. Since so many of us are spending more time at home, we might as well enjoy our surroundings. That is the difference between living in a house or being in a home.
