Home Decor to Modernize Your Home’s Style

Living in an older home does not mean you have to live with older decor. Updating your home with a modern style does not require a huge investment. Home decor is often about the details. You don’t need a home renovation in order to enjoy a modern decor style. Today, the team at Ellecor Interior Design will offer a few decor updates that can give your home’s style a modern look.

Start With the Lights

One of the most overlooked aspects of home decor is the lighting. The lights you use have a significant impact on the feel of a room’s design. Brighten up your home with table and floor lamps. Metallic lamps with simple geometric designs are an inexpensive investment that can do wonders for your home’s style.

Installing new ceiling fixtures is a bit more intensive, but can have a dramatic impact on a room. For most homeowners, it’s best to avoid digging into your home’s electric wiring on your own. If you are planning on making significant changes to your fixtures, contact a professional interior design team, like Ellecor.

Clean Up Clutter

There are a few schools of thought when it comes to accessorizing your home. Contemporary design leans towards minimalism, but that doesn’t mean simply ditching stuff. Instead, concentrate on rearranging furniture so your rooms feel open. Unburden your bookshelves from unnecessary clutter. Remove excess decorative pillows and blankets.  A few are fine, but piles of pillows and blankets strewn across your sofa can make your living room seem cluttered.

Accentuate Your Decor with Art

Contemporary art is a lovely addition to almost any room. Look for art that complements your furniture. When you place art on your walls, try to hang it about eye level or slightly below. Opt for simple frames in lieu of more traditional ornate frames.

Ellecor: Interior Design Tips for Cozy Minimalism

Cozy minimalism is a rising trend in the interior design world. This trend is essentially the halfway point between harsh minimalism and a busier interior design trend. You don’t want your house to be cluttered, but you also don’t want it to feel like an operating room. The idea behind cozy minimalism is to focus on both comfort and functionality. Read on to find out more about how to curate a cozy minimalist look in your own home!

Curate a Functional Base

Get the basics right! Invest in pieces of furniture that will fit the function of the room. Build your room around simple and sleek pieces. If you’re designing a living room, your couch (which is the piece of furniture that expresses the function of the room) should be the focal point. Everything else in the room should focus on enhancing that space and highlighting its function. Function is king in a minimalist design!

Quality Over Quantity

Instead of spending money on lots of cheap décor that can end up making your home look cluttered, invest in high-quality pieces of décor that enhance the space without overwhelming it. Spend time curating your collection of décor so that you don’t end up with extraneous ornamentation.

Add in Some Texture

A great way to make a minimalist design feel cozy is to add texture to your space. You can do this by adding a fuzzy area rug. Also, a few blankets draped over chairs and couches will give the space a soft, inviting feel.

Don’t Forget to Accessorize

Cozy minimalism doesn’t call for a rejection of all accessories. Rather, you should carefully choose your pieces so that each one adds something to the space. Choose minimal accessories so as not to make the space feel cluttered. Use things like throw pillows or wall art to add pops of color to your simple design. If you forgo accessories altogether the room will feel sterile, so choose a handful of pieces that speak to your sense of cozy style.
