Decorating Trends for 2011 by Galerie Vanlian

One of the reasons I hate to follow trends is just about the time you start to follow one and think you finally know what is “in” you are actually out.  BUMMER! More significantly, I just like to be unique and do my own thing. I really don’t like the idea of someone else telling me what is in or out

When I start to see the same types of accessories pop up in everyone’s home, I have to admit I cringe a little bit. Especially if it is pretty obvious it is done to follow a trend. I’d rather fill my house with things I love or that have significance to me, even if they are not on the current “hot list.”

It is hard though, because when you start to see everyone heading in a direction, it is easy to fall in love with the look and want to copy it for yourself. And there really isn’t any thing wrong at all with incorporating some trends into your own style, if you truly love them.

I am happy to see that the trends are moving away from the stark modern look (which I’ve never liked) to a more eclectic style that incorporates some richer and bolder muted colors, more textures, layers, antiques and items collected around the world. It seems like the current trend makes it easier for those of us who have been collecting things over time and through our travels to be somewhat “in” without even trying!

It is easy to get stuck in a rut of what you’ve always done and not really know how to update your look on a budget, even if you wanted to. By being aware of the trends, it is easier to shop and be able to pick out bargains that keep your style current, if that is important to you. You don’t need to shop at the high end shops when you know what to look for in the bargain or thrift shops!

 do appreciate seeing things in a new way, so it is worth looking over trends to see how you could use what you already have and see it with fresh eyes! And in some cases, you might already own some of the new trends! You might even think of them as out of date when really, they are back around again and even being used or paired in new ways.

So I guess if you already have something that is in, even though you’ve had it for 20 years, it makes you a trend setter! YES! Next thing you know, you’ll be able to pull out those mom jeans you’ve tossed in the very back of your closet.

Living Room Furniture by Galerie Vanlian

The living room is the room for living. It’s a gathering place, a place that embraces family and friends with relaxed style. If you want to enrich your life, create a family-friendly living room with areas for reading, talking, working and relaxing.

Before you order a coach, or pick up a paint brush, look at your space with objective eye. Whether you’re redesigning the whole room or just refreshing it, open your mind to the creative possibilities, think about furniture and finishes, colors and textures, follow your own instincts, what counts is not a certain style, but your style.

Choose furniture, materials and colors that inspire you. Trust your own eye for and feelings about decor will generate the best ideas for decorating your living room. Start with the basics: a comfortable, well-made sofa, a versatile coffee table, beautiful drapes, a quality rug.

When shopping for new furniture, make safety and comfort just as important as beauty. Look for designs with friendly detailing. To increase the sense of comfort and good energy, arrange your living room furniture to form islands that you can move around easily. Appoint corners with any combination of enhancements, such as plants, sculpture, lighting, art and furniture.

An interior is the natural projection of the soul – Coco Chanel

To encourage social intimacy and relaxation, place the primary furniture-often a sofa- so that it commands a view of the room. Then give other seating a nice view, putting everyone at ease and making the room both attractive and comfortable. To assure ideal views throughout the room, make sure the corners in your living room are clear of clutter. A sense of uncluttered abundance is the key: all that’s needed is present and plentiful, yet organized in a way that keeps the space open and livable.

Living room decorating expresses a sense of welcome and sets the tone for the rest of your home. By definition the living room is the space in a home that’s most full of life and spirit.
