By incorporating the latest décor design trends, you can turn any living space into a luxurious one in no time. In order to help you transform your home into a true paradise of comfort, we have singled out our top easy-to-follow urban redecoration tips.
A Transitional Living Room
First things first, nothing screams stylish more than decorating your living room in a transitional manner. This style represents a beautiful blend of traditional and contemporary elements allowing you to evoke a timeless vibe in your home. Begin by implementing a neutral tone-on-tone color palette for your paint job, furniture and accessories. For example, you can go for a chic pastel green combination and paint the room in a light lime shade to match it with dark-toned furniture. Additionally, you can complement this classic arrangement with a green floor rug and by hanging eucalyptus and mint wreaths on your walls. Feel free to spice things up with ambient lighting pieces such as abstractly-designed wall lamps and recessed lights for creating a unique welcoming feel.

The Minimalist Bathroom
Another important part of your home that deserves a revitalizing redecoration is the bathroom. The key here is to go for changes which will turn this area into your haven for wellness and relaxation. You can achieve this by opening the space up and letting as much natural light in as possible. Furthermore, you can make the room feel broader and brighter by installing a mirror wall for an oversimplified yet luxurious look. On top of that, you can go a step further and opt for a spacious curtain-less shower if you want to invite an upscale minimalistic atmosphere. Most importantly, in order to leave a true fashion statement, be sure to go for Terrazzo tiles made from a variety of materials such as marble, colored glass and tinted cement that will give your bathroom a beautifully raw personality.
The Glamorous Laidback Home Office
Every contemporary household needs to have a wonderfully decorated comfortable home office where one can work in a relaxed setting. People who want this room to be less secluded from the rest of the house have the option to separate it with a practical sliding shelf which will function as both a door and convenient storage space for work documents and books. Furthermore, since you have the freedom to work at home barefoot, you would want to keep your feet warm and cozy by adding a shag carpet or cool-patterned Moroccan rug. As far as comfortable furniture is concerned, make sure to get an amazing egg chair so you can work in style. This chair is not only an iconic décor piece, but it also possesses an impeccable ergonomic design which will allow you to remain seated for longer periods of time without straining your back. Finally, for creating a laidback reading nook, all you’ll need to do is place a great daybed cushion against a wall along with soft throw pillows and a freestanding LED lamp that will shine a pleasant focused light and improve your reading sessions.
Rejuvenate the Bedroom
A home makeover today would definitely be incomplete without rejuvenating the bedroom. With this in mind, be sure to incorporate subtle tones and exquisite fabrics this season since they’ve gained a lot in popularity recently. Begin by introducing calming beige and cream hues into the design with a walnut, pine or maple wood bed and a matching dresser or vanity. You should complement the look with a wonderful upholstered background wall and a bed frame for a stunning contemporary design. Alternatively, you can opt for padded wall panels or the look of textured wallpaper since they offer a wide range of customizable options. To bring out the true potential of this modern arrangement, you should cover your bed with designer bedding and sleep like royalty.
Modern Industrial Kitchen Design
Last but not least, boosting the look of your kitchen is necessary for adding the cherry on top to your redecoration project. When it comes to its design, one should focus on creating a clean looking open space where natural and artificial materials bond to make a meaningful unity. For instance, you can go for a concrete kitchen countertop for an industrial style feature. Not only is this a high-demand material, but it’s also very durable and can even be decorated with mosaic stones, seashells or built-in lights. This attractive industrial design can be further emphasized by installing bare brick tiles on the walls and bringing in dining chairs and a table made from reclaimed timber. Lastly, a large art piece such as an oil painting or a retro poster will add that final touch to the decor.
As you can see, it doesn’t take much effort to upgrade your existing home décor to meet the latest interior design trends. Simply try to experiment with materials, fabrics, colors and styles until you find the ones that speak to you the most and help boost the look of your home.
