If you consider decorating and redecorating your home, you should keep in mind some fresh trends and ideas that modern designers offer. We’ve already shared some ideas of edgy furniture that every home needs and today I’d like to show you some more options considering home decor.
Though symmetry is considered the best idea to visually make your space larger, it also makes your space more ordinary. Asymmetry adds visual interest to the space and it makes it look more casual and less formal. Asymmetrical elements in the decor catch an eye and give your home a character. These can be gallery walls, asymmetrically placed furniture, asymmetrical fireplaces and various accessories, the windows can be also asymmetrical – such an architectural feature is a bold and cool idea if you can go for it.

Mixed Metallic Finishes
Matching metallics has always been a hard problem, which required tons of time to look for the pieces that match but now you can forget about it – no more matching! Mixed metallic finishes have become a trend, and you may see more and more spaces with them. Of course, there is a couple of rules that you should apply to achieve a stylish look but that’s not difficult! Choose a dominant metal that will the main one, then match the finishes – they should be the same to unify the look and highlight the statement piece, which is done in the dominant metal.

A negative space is one more idea, it’s not even a trend, it’s a timeless idea that always works. It’s a spot where there’s nothing, which is psychologically pleasing, and such a feel of a spacious room is always great. Besides, you may use this spot anytime filling it with something. A negative space in any room should be intended to look harmonious. To have enough room for a negative space, declutter the space and use double-duty furniture. Negative space accentuates the decor you have even more creating that light feeling of a large room.
