Keep your style fresh for years to come

Keeping up with the trends in home decor can be tough. So this year, why not opt out of following the latest and greatest, and choose timeless home decor style over fleeting fads? We've got 10 home decor trends that will keep your style fresh for years to come.

Keep your style fresh for years to come


Natural lighting

If you need to buy window coverings, choose window treatments that let in the most light. Where there is minimal natural light, invest in high-quality lighting options that give your space a natural-looking glow.



When it comes to home decor, it's often better to splurge on something that will stand the test of time rather than something trendy, yet poorly made. You'll end up spending the same amount on several low-cost, low-quality items versus one well-made piece. Again, shop wisely.


Warm tones

Shades like caramel, plum and ochre are all timeless because they warm up your space. Whether you paint a room in a warm tone or stock up on accents in those shades, your home will look chic and cozy, regardless of the latest trends.


Shades of gray

In fashion and in home decor, gray is a shade that isn't going away. From softer tones to slate to gray with hints of blue, this timeless color looks good anywhere -- including on counter tops, walls and accessories.


Smart storage

An organized house is a happy house. Having smart storage solutions never goes out of style and will ensure your home is always in order. From wrought iron hooks to classic bookshelves, you can easily make storage part of your design aesthetic.

Easy updates for any home

Not every piece within your home must fall within the "timeless" category. In fact, following the latest trends will keep your decor fresh and fun. To have your cake -- and eat it too -- go trendy with items that can easily be exchanged from season to season. Feature the latest fabric prints on throw pillows, or highlight the hottest color palette by painting an accent wall. As the trends come and go, you can easily update these items without requiring a complete makeover.
