Five Ways to Add Year-Round Color to Your Home Garden

Is your garden looking a bit dull and unloved? If so, it’s probably time for you to sort out your garden and add a splash of color. A garden can do miracles for your overall well-being, as it has been scientifically proven that being in nature has a healing and calming effect on people. Spending some quality time in your garden will help alleviate stress and offer you a healthy way to relax after a hard day of work. Here are five steps you can take to add more color to your garden:

Clean Up your Garden Thoroughly

The first step you should consider is a good cleaning. Take out all the old leaves and plants, pull out the weeds and throw out any junk you don’t use. This will give you a far better idea of what your garden needs and thus make it easier to restructure and landscape your outside space.

Divide the Garden in Sectors

You can use all sorts of materials for this purpose, from old fashioned stone walls to colorful picket fences. Dividing your garden will give you more of an overview, plus it will make it easier for you to attend to plants and flowers since they will be easily reachable. A neatly arranged garden will make you feel more calm, in a similar manner to a Japanese rock garden.

Add Lots of Flowers

Flowers are the obvious choice, since gardens are mostly known for the plethora of greens that grow in them. You have access to so many specimens online and at your local nursery, that you can literally make your own tiny rainforest if you want to. Or maybe you prefer a traditional rose garden? Flowers will brighten up any day, so make the most of them in the space you have.

Consider Building a Cozy Porch or Veranda

There’s nothing better than having an afternoon cup of tea after sunset on your own porch. You can paint the porch in bright colors, which will make the garden more colorful instantly. Try to choose sustainable materials such as recycled wood, the environment will thank you.

Add Some Colorful Lighting

If you want to make the nights just as colorful as the days, add some special lighting sources. A few unique lamps or lanterns here and there will make your garden a heavenly place for late night chill sessions or a barbecue with friends. During Christmas you will reap the benefits, as you will have less work putting up colorful lights.

It is easy to add year-round color to your garden. The color can come from a wide variety of sources: outdoor furniture, paint, pots, tile, and of course plants.

Eight Home Design Trends that Will Rule 2019

Want to know how to improve your personal space with the latest design trends? Interior design has become a large influence on our lives. After all, who would even dare to invite friends over for a dinner party when the venue is not up to par. If you want your house to be the life of the party, read on for the latest design trends for the upcoming year.

Craftsmanship

Choosing well-crafted furniture is fashionable again, as opposed to stockpiling Ikea items just because they’re cheap. Go out and find a local atelier or a neighborhood carpenter, so you can have a craftsman design your own unique piece. It will surely give your interior a personal touch.

Metal makes a comeback

Metal is back from…well, it never really left. Iron, copper, stainless steel and aluminum are all popular in 2019. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer a classical or modern interior; a touch of metal will guarantee to provide you with an edge that will make your interior shine.

Nature as a guiding force

With the trend of valuing natural items, going back to our roots seems plausible. Which is why natural elements like wood and plants is so popular. People want to feel like they can breathe in your home, so crank up that photosynthesis and invest in some green additions or at least a wooden table. You won’t regret it.

Flowers are timeless

Flowers never fall out of fashion. The petals might fall out in due time though, so remember to refresh your flower arrangements from time to time.

Concrete is still happening

Concrete seems like a boring and cold material, but it sure has its benefits. It’s extremely resistant to all sorts of moisture damage and it has an overall sleek look and feel. If you want to create a downtown atmosphere that is reminiscent of a Brooklyn loft, invest in some concrete accents. Success guaranteed.

Vintage accents to counter Minimalism

Last but not least; don’t forget the value of nostalgia. If you want a pleasant atmosphere in your house, invest in some classic items. And to create that authentic feel, don’t forget the vintage pieces like a collector’s Hermes scarf on the coat rack. These historical gems will make any lifeless place come to life in the blink of an eye.

Pattern

Designers aren’t just going bold with color: geometric patterns, abstract prints and nature-inspired motifs like florals, which were emerging trends last year, will continue to be popular in 2019.

A Resort in Your Backyard

Homeowners want luxury hotel amenities in their backyards. They want all the amenities and the look of a luxury hotel and even go a bit further with outdoor home theaters, poolside televisions and pizza ovens from Italy. Another popular feature is artificial turf because it always looks perfect. It can be used in shady areas and does not require water and chemicals to keep it healthy.


Design Trends for the Home

The start of a new year means that it’s time for a whole new set of home design trends, great news for those who love to redecorate.  In this blog, we’ll be taking a look at some of the big design trends for 2018, and explaining the ideas that underlie them. These are the home design trends that will come to dominate the next twelve months.

First of all, let’s take a look at what is predicted to be the color palette for 2018. Last year the neutral base color of choice was gray. That’s set to stay the same this year, the key difference being that the colors set against it are going to be a lot bolder. It’s all about setting a mood, so shades of dark purple and rich emerald will be perfect for creating a space that’s sophisticated yet homey, somewhere that you can really relax.

As for patterns in the home, you can’t have missed the 2017 trend for big, palm tree patterns covering pretty much everything you can think of in home décor. Well, that trend doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere, but it’s likely that it will diversify into a richer selection of floral patterns to choose from. Big and oversized are still the buzzwords of the day. Look for large patterns, and see how you can fit them into the rest of your décor without spoiling the mood.

One area where vintage fittings are trending is lighting. Crafty home decorators are reclaiming old light fittings and giving them a new lease on life, using things like pendants and sconces and transforming them into feature pieces. Whether you want it to or not, lighting always ends up being a focal point of a room. Reclaiming big, bold retro lights allows you to embrace this fact, and give a much-needed centerpiece to any room.

Finally, let’s take a look at the upcoming home design trends for kitchens and bathrooms. As any real estate agent will tell you, these are the rooms that really sell houses, so if you’re thinking about moving, you’ll want to pay close attention to them. However, even if you’re planning on staying put, it’s still nice to have a warm, homey feel in these rooms and fortunately, that’s exactly the trend in 2018. Following on from those reclaimed retro lights, sinks are also being influenced by the past. Bucket or trough sinks are all the rage right now, since not only do they give a bathroom a rustic feel, but they are also remarkably durable, perfect for busy homes. Both kitchens and bathrooms are predicted to move away from that classic white look, and start to incorporate a bit more of the dark side. Blacks and grays are the order of the day.

Evеrу соlоr has an еmоtiоnаl аѕѕосiаtiоn and еасh оf us аrе drаwn tо ѕhаdеѕ of thе vаriоuѕ colors thаt most resemble or reflect оur оwn оutlооk оn life, thiѕ is аlѕо known as оur реrѕоnаl color рrоfilе. Exploring thе wonderful opportunities аvаilаblе to сарturе diffеrеnt moods аnd fееlingѕ, using соlоr thаt rеflесtѕ уоur реrѕоnаl inspiration.

Here аrе ѕоmе examples:

Bluе

The ѕwееt tаѕtе оf bluеbеrriеѕ, уоur fаvоuritе pair оf bluе dеnim jеаnѕ, rеlаxing оn уоur back ѕtаring intо thе big bluе ѕkу, wаrm сrуѕtаl blue water lapping аt уоur feet, and thоѕе tinу bluе flоwеrѕ.

Red

Chilliеѕ, blооd rеd аnd rеd hot, еxоtiс аrоmаѕ that arouse the senses, ѕumрtuоuѕ сut vеlvеtѕ, ѕilkу tаffеtаѕ jеwеl like mоѕаiсѕ, ѕwееt ѕtrаwbеrriеѕ, аnd рink сhаmраgnе, forbidden fruitѕ lеаd uѕ tо tеmрtаtiоn, ѕсеntеd candles….. a сеlеbrаtiоn of live аnd love.

Whitе

Thе firѕt light, still, huѕhеd, tranquil a quiet рlасе tо think аnd rеflесt freshly washed ѕhееtѕ blоwing in thе breeze, ѕnоw flakes gеntlу fаlling, реаrliѕеd glass, translucent роrсеlаin, a blаnk саnvаѕ…… a masterpiece аwаitѕ.

Green

Mоѕѕ covered rосkѕ in a deep dark fоrеѕt, the coolness of a tropical rain fоrеѕt, the vеrу firѕt leaves оf spring, the ѕmеll of freshly сut grаѕѕ, a riре аvосаdо in a frеѕh gаrdеn ѕаlаd, or a juicy green apple.

Orаngе

Thе brеаthtаking beauty of аn orange ѕunѕеt, autumn leaves ruѕtling undеr уоur fееt, thе еxоtiс aroma of ѕаffrоn, nutmeg, аnd сinnаmоn that giant Mexican tеrrасоttа роt уоu hаd tо leave bеhind, thаt frеѕh tаѕting orange thаt burѕtѕ tо lifе when you take thаt first bite.

Brоwn

The crusty top on a perfectly bаkеd lоаf оf brеаd, smooth реbblеѕ оn the bоttоm of a creek bed, an overcast ѕkу аbоut tо ѕtоrm, driftwood washed uр on a beach, аnd thе smell of frеѕhlу brеwеd соffее.

Whеn сhооѕing paint, kеер in mind thаt a lighter соlоr will mаkе уоur place lооk biggеr, аn imроrtаnt соnѕidеrаtiоn if уоu live in a tiny араrtmеnt. By thе same token, a dаrkеr color can make a rооm fееl mоrе closed in, аlthоugh оnе wаll in a dаrkеr ѕhаdе саn have a focusing еffесt. If gоing with a lightеr color, you dоn’t hаvе to stick with thе uѕuаl whitе оn whitе. Sоftеr ѕhаdеѕ аrе dеfinitеlу аnd option, еѕресiаllу tаnѕ and mосhа оr cappuccino, light grеу-bluе and ѕаgе green. Stау аwау frоm рinkiѕh toned pastels it can be overbеаring ѕоmе timеѕ. Also stay аwау frоm patterned wallpaper, whiсh hаѕ thе leaning to overpower small ѕрасеѕ.
