1. NEUTRAL TONES
If you don’t know what color to choose when decorating your living room, opt for neutral tones (white, beige, gray …) and you won’t regret it. They are elegant, timeless, harmonize with the entire palette, relax, and radiate luminosity.
2. WOOL BLANKETS
You became a fan of them when in winter you went to sleep at your grandparents’ house and got into bed tucked up. Within a minute you had already warmed up. The reason was those woolen blankets, those of a lifetime, which were the hand of a saint. Now you keep them in the living room to enjoy them in those couch and movie marathons that are coming. Woven by hand with patience, they are warm, soft, and colored with natural dyes.
3. WHITE CURTAIN
Its simplicity and purity have made the white curtains and, in general, those of raw colors, remain in time as if nothing had happened. They look good in any room. You can also put them alone giving a feeling of lightness – linen are a crack due to their spectacular drape – or double, combined with other warmer fabrics such as chenille, canvas, or velvet, ideal for winter. By the way, if you look at the image you will come across another deco icon that years do not pass through: the checkerboard floor. Yes, those black and white tiles, typical of the 60s, are still so fashionable.
4. NORDIC STYLE
It is the star interior design trend of the last 10 years and it seems that it has left rope for many others! Its refined and minimalist design has captivated interior designers and the general public alike. Surely in your house, you have opted in a room to use neutral colors, mix low-cost furniture with design pieces, give the furniture other uses, leave structural elements in view or decorate with natural or vintage objects.
5. VINTAGE FURNITURE
Although the style of your home is modern, you can incorporate an old piece of furniture: a dresser, a sideboard, a dining table … Inherited or acquired in an auction, they will revalue any room. And if it has small scratches, stains, or nicks that reveal the passage of time, leave them. They will make it much more original.
6. DECORATIVE MOLDINGS
You will be interested to know that this ornamental resource in relief dates from the Greek period although it is in the 18th century when its use is extended. Today, as yesterday, they continue to decorate walls and ceilings giving volume, dynamism, and distinction to the rooms.
7. NATURAL FIBERS
Those wicker objects that you saw in the townhouse when you were little have gradually conquered the decoration of urban houses, turning them into a must-have. Before you only knew wicker and esparto, but now a whole world of fibers has opened up before you: sisal, rattan, water hyacinth, jute … Today you cannot conceive your home without its warm presence in the form of rugs, seats, headboards, lamps, baskets… And you are delighted! Their simplicity and resistance explain why they have remained this fresh and what they have left!
8. LARGE MIRRORS
Mirrors have always been a good decoration resource due to the possibilities they offer when it comes to enlarging and lighting rooms. What has changed over time is the choice of its size and its location: from the small sun-shaped mirrors typical of the hallways of the 60s – which curiously have become fashionable again – it has gone out of style. to king-size models with an aged gold frame, inspired by large palaces. Now, instead of fixing them to the wall, they tend to support them, either on the fireplace or on the floor, like the one in the image. And it’s so spectacular!
9. SUSTAINABLE DESIGN
The ecological spirit is permeating more and more in our homes. It is no longer rare to see solar panels or urban gardens on the outside and XL plants, recycled furniture, large windows, and glazed windows inside. Everything to be more in tune with nature and make the most of sunlight. Small sustainable gestures that add up and will never go out of style.
