Incorporating Current Fashion Trends Into Your Home

Who says fashion is reserved for the runways? In fact, you might be able to guess what the inside of someone's home looks like based on what they wear. Just as clothing goes in and out of style, so does home decorations. One might argue that clothes are easily replaceable, are less costly, and are generally less of a pain to replace. However, if you shop smartly, this isn't always the case. You can incorporate textures, patterns, colors, and designs easily into your home, without breaking the bank. By swapping out things such as curtains, wool rugs, and wall decor, you can incorporate your favorite current fashion trends into your home, so your living room or bedroom represents your own personal style.

Textiles are probably the quickest and easiest items to replace and swap out and they make a bigger difference than you would think. By adding a pair of bold mustard yellow curtains on French doors or investing in a tribal print throw rug, you can embrace your favorite trends without overspending and they really do make a world of difference. Some textiles to swap out might include:
  • Curtains
  • Throw rugs
  • Bed comforter
  • Throw blanket
  • Throw pillows
Wool Rugs
Switching out old fashion furniture can be a little tricky and you might have to get creative. If you really feel that your furniture is out of date and doesn't represent the style you are trying to achieve in a room, you can always visit your local thrift shop or flea market. Garage sales are often a hit or miss and you might find some really great pieces to fit your new furniture theme. Remember, it may only take one piece to achieve the look you're going for. However, if there's a way to change the look of your furniture yourself, go for it! Whether it's a fresh coat of paint or another creative DIY for furniture, the sky's the limit.

If you want to go for the preppy equestrian fashion look that seems to be all over the runways, there are ways to do it without breaking the bank. Add a plaid throw blanket to your couch and go thrift shopping for an older, vintage trunk to use either as a coffee table or just for aesthetics. Opt for some monogrammed throw pillows and a wool rug in a deep color, such as burgundy or hunter green and voila! You've transformed an entire room with just a few items and without breaking the bank.
