Guest Post ~ 5 Styles for your Home that are Here to Stay

Since our family moved in to our new house, whatever time I have left, I have been spending it on our house (that is why you don't see much sewing post lately, sorry guys!). I don't quite know what my decorating style is, but one thing I can say is that my clothing choices don't really follow a trend like I do when I decorate my home. I add some elements of what's in style; for example, pillows, window decoration and such, things that are inexpensive and easy to replace rather than big furniture. Do you ever wonder what kind of style is here to stay and what's not? Today's guest post by Brionna Kennedy talks about just that, enjoy!

Home Trends: 5 Styles For Your Home That Are Here To Stay

Just as with wardrobe fashions, every year, new colors, textures and design ideas appear in home decors. Even with the continual changes that occur, there are some styles that seem to be here to stay.

Comfortable Living Rooms
The living room is where many families spend a considerable amount of time. While upholstery colors, patterns and fabrics change from year to year, it is essential that they retain the qualities of durability and beauty. Sofas and accent chair designs may be altered to reflect new trends, but comfort still remains a key element.

Inviting Entryways
The first few steps a visitors makes into your home can give them an idea of what to expect as they move into the living room and dining room. Foyers that are attractive and welcoming will never go out of style.

Clutter-free Living
Rooms that are well organized and clutter-free seem to be here to stay. Small home living is a popular trend, as is downsizing, but these are also situation that reduce or limit the amount of storage space in a home. Modern, contemporary and transitional decors require an absence of clutter. Storage Units are a great a solution to a shortage of home storage space and a desire to live clutter-free.

Bedroom Retreats
Another style that is here to stay is the creation of a master bedroom retreat. This retreat generally includes a sitting area and a wonderfully comfortable and attractive sleeping space. The room is decorated so that it exudes relaxation and gives the room the appearance and feel of a luxurious retreat.

Vintage Style
It seems that vintage decor is here to stay. Vintage furniture and some vintage accessories actually blend very well into a modern, contemporary or transitional decor. You have to make your selection of vintage items carefully, with your over all decorating plan in mind, but there are vintage items that can be successfully incorporated into any home decor.

The one thing to remember about choosing a decorating style for your home is that it should be a style that you can live comfortably with. You want to enjoy living in your home, not feel as if you're living in a hands-off museum. Decorating styles change and quite often, out-dated decorative accessories reappear in later years in some form or another. If you have some of your out-dated decor in a storage unit, you can retrieve it, display and look very trendy without spending any money.

I think those five points are timeless tips. Thank you for a fantastic post Brionna!
