All of us who live in a home, apartment, flat, whatever it may be, want to come home to a space that is as warm and comfortable as it is beautiful. We want a home that looks like it could be featured on the front page of a magazine, a home that stands out from any other home that we have ever seen. 

This is a great goal, but it can be overwhelming trying to decide where to start or how to get your home exactly how you like it. All in all, it can be a little tricky. There are so many things to choose from, like what type of floor you want throughout your home, your doors, door handles, and sliding barn door hardware.

So how does one create this type of look that is trendy and functional, but accommodating? It can be a challenge to make your house distinct from other houses that you have seen, but the look can actually happen easier than you think. Below are a few on-trend styling secrets to make your house 
look more flawless than ever.

1. The use of colour

There is a style known as colour blocking that is currently all the rage in home design trends. This concept happens when you create an entire room using only one colour. It can be a difficult trend to get a grasp on, but it is made easier if you pick out a favourite piece of furniture in the space and match the paint colour on your walls to it. The key to making this trend work is to find a place to put in different patterns and complementary colours that bring out your primary colour and make it look magnificent.

2. Use fresh flowers when you can

Fake flowers and greenery are great to use in that they will last for years and years to come. However, they are nothing compared to a cute vase filled with fresh flowers displayed in such a way as to make a room look elegant and really tie it all together. Flowers not only ad in a nice touch of fresh air to your space, but they also add a natural element and a pop of colour that really brightens and freshens up a room to pull it all together.


3. Paint the trim on your doors

One brand new trend that is really coming out in high home decor fashion is painting the trim on the doors throughout your house. This gives your home a look that is artsy yet sophisticated and it takes people by surprise when they see a pop of colour in unexpected places throughout the house. Painting the door trims will help break up the room and make it more dynamic while also bringing in more colour to your home.

4. Hang your drapes from the very top of your wall

Traditionally, people would get new curtains and hang them from the top of the window down to the wall. However, if you go a step further and hang your drapes from the very top of the wall, you will draw attention to this area and make it look higher. It adds instant drama to the space. It will help make your windows look larger, thereby making the entire room look larger and catching the eye of everyone who walks by.

5. Don't be afraid to play with mixing colours

Primary colours are very important to have in any space as it brightens up the room and makes it look more dynamic and open at the same time. It is okay to get creative with primary colours and combine them to make it your own. Try fun interesting colours together to add a bright infusion of colour in any given room throughout your home that won't be seen in many other houses. The more you play with colours the more your house is going to stand out among the rest.

When it comes to decorating your home this year and finding ways to make it really stand out among other houses, don't shy away from being bold and taking chances with your decor options. The more colour, the bigger the statement!
