5 Ways to Refresh Your Interior Design Style and Stay Current in 2019

Cheers to 2019!

A lot of things can change in a year's time, and if you're like us, your personal style is definitely one of those things.

So what can you do to keep your living space reflective of your personal style without wasting time and resources? Here are 5 simple steps you can take to refresh your style and stay creative in 2019: 

1. Incorporate Beautiful Color or Pattern into Each Room in Your Home

Stand for a minute in each room of your home and ask yourself "Do I feel inspired?" This will help you to determine where to start your design refresh.

Does your bedroom bore you? Is your living room feeling flat? Does your foyer feel welcoming? Add some warmth with a bit of brass lighting, or add an oversized piece of wall art to spark creativity and stimulate your senses.

Add the Ocelet Snow Pillow with Black Linen Flange by Lacefield Designs to your sofa for some flare and personality, or incorporate the Made Goods Bea Stool to be used as a side table or extra seating for a surprising design twist in your living space. 

2. Incentivize Yourself to Finish Old Projects

If your unfinished tasks from 2018 are preventing you from making strides in the 2019, take some time this week to check them off your todo list.

Paint that wall a new color, clean out that spare bedroom, reconfigure your living room. It doesn’t have to be a drag; turn on the music, pour a glass of wine, and light your favorite candle—like these from Thucassi. At the end of every project, reward yourself with a new accessory or timeless piece of furniture. Pretty soon, you’ll find yourself with a whole new mindset and a whole new space.

The Four Hands Cove Chair is the perfect incentive for finishing those pesky projects. Its versatile design gives the traditional barrel design a feminine update and add the perfect touch to your master enclave. While we're in the bedroom, the Made Goods Conrad Double Nightstand makes the perfect surface for a glass of champagne.

3. Add Warmth with Rugs and Lighting for an Instant Refresh

Looking for a touch of glamour or a fabulous focal point to add that "wow" factor? An effortless and rewarding way to add an instant design facelift is to start with lighting and rugs. Whether above your head or below your feet, these elements can add instant sophistication and personal style to your room.

The Arteriors Home Hera Flush Mount Oval Chandelier is the perfect focal point for a living room, bedroom, or home office. Its design is derived from Greek and Roman columns, which helps it maintain a timeless beauty.

An essential floor rug like the SURYA Amadeo Area Rug offers a neutral charcoal tone that can match nearly any space. Its sheen and textural pattern uses subtle elements that can effortlessly tie your entire space together.

4. Use Big Pieces to Create Immediate and Impactful Change

Are you craving a drastic makeover? Start with one big piece that inspires you and then all the other pieces will fall into place. For example, if you're styling a dining room, choose your dining room table first to help anchor the room, and then layer in the chairs, lighting and tabletop decor to perfectly compliment the vision of the space.

Does the Four Hands Damon Sofa inspire you? This modern and luxurious piece gives movement and depth to an office or living space and offers itself as an anchor to design the rest of the room. 

Make a statement with the textured brass Jaques Console Table by Bungalow 5. This statement piece is wrapped in a stunning repose pattern that gives warmth to a foyer or home office look.  

5. Accessorize with Designs that Represent You

Accessories are like jewelry—they should reflect your personality and add a bit of sparkle, shine, and happiness to your life. This is why it's important to choose your home accessories wisely.

Which ones speak to you? How do they make you feel? These finishing touches may not seem essential, but once they're in the space, they can make all the difference to completing your grand vision.

Add some geometric shine with the Ross Tray by Arteriors Home. Get a rich and impressive look with this functional, waterproof, and elegant piece solidified by polished brass.

Channel your ancient Venetian gilded era obsession with the Bungalow 5 Theo Mirror. This custom beveled and polished mirror is the perfect piece to give character to a hallway, foyer or powder room.

You're going to make a splash in 2019, this we know!  Let your gorgeous taste in decor and home furnishings inspire your evolution in the new year.
