Empire Carpet Home Decorating Ideas – Summer 2012
Summer is almost here, which may mean that your home needs a bit of a decorating update. Trends for this season are still in line with spring and include exciting and bright colors matched with natural fiber products. A perfect example of this could be changing the place settings at the dinner table to natural woven fiber placemats with bright and colorful plates and a colorful centerpiece. The juxtaposition of the natural, understated tones and the bright colors are perfect for adding an element of fun and surprise to your home. Muted versions of the summers hottest colors can be perfect too, for those looking for a less bold statement – look for lavenders instead of iris purple or a light teal rather than a turquoise. One current trend is de-cluttering. Less is always more when it comes to creating a welcoming, easy-to-maintain living space. This fits with the larger lifestyle trend of simplifying our lives, reducing stress and focusing on the essentials.
One exciting new trend for Fall 2011 is layering area rugs. It’s a fun way to introduce new fall colors and patterns to your rooms and gives a warm comfy look to your floors. You can layer them on any hard surface floor or even over carpet. Use the accent colors in your area rugs as a color theme for accessories such as throw pillows, lamps, artwork and candles.
Empire Carpet Home Decorating Ideas – Winter 2012
Start at the front door. A burst of color and/or sparkle from an eye-catching door wreath gives a warm welcome to all who enter – including you! Today wreathes are year-round, changing with the season, instead of only for the holidays. You can buy or make them with fruits, herbs, flowers, pines, grasses, you name it. In the grey of winter a colorful door wreath is always inviting. And snug inside, the colors resonating with the new Winter trends, according to hgtv.com, range from “rich red and aubergine to icy blue and metallic silver.” As far as style goes, Mid Century is big. The appeal of a return to the designs of the 50’s and 60’s could be a result of the popular series “Madmen” or a longing for simpler times. In any case, a modern approach to retro is catching on.
