Design bloggers are always on top of the latest home decor trends and these are just six of the trends that are taking over the blogosphere.

When looking to update a room, homeowners would usually turn to the glossy pages of Vogue or Vanity Fair. Social networking changed this significantly and these days many people are being inspired through different channels including Twitter, interior design blogs and online magazines. If you want to add a contemporary feel to your home, take a few tips from the following trends.

Go Nude

Neutral decor is something that never goes out of fashion so it’s not surprising that today’s top design bloggers have included it in this season’s hottest home trends. However, this season’s neutrals boast a fresh twist that focuses on texture. Classic colours such as taupe, beige and cream are the base of the look but with each colour change brings a new texture for the room. You can incorporate this trend into any room of your home by using accessories that include neutral fur rugs, suede lamps and textured wall paper.

White Hot   

White is this season’s hottest hue which is great news for homeowners who want to create the illusion of larger rooms this summer. White walls, furniture and home accessories instantly make a look fresh and reflect the light making it a brighter space. Light colours open up a room and make it look larger which is perfect for those with limited space. Mix your shades of white to create this look that design bloggers love.

Gorgeous Gallery Wall

If you want to make a home decor statement this summer, this trend is for you. You can create a gallery wall in any room of your house to instantly update your decor. This trend is simple as it only requires a few picture frames in various sizes and some family photos. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour and don’t forget to use a tape measure to ensure that all of your pictures are equally spaced.

Bold Prints

Bold prints are all over the catwalk this season but they are now taking over home decor trends too. Design bloggers have pitched prints as one of the biggest home decor trends of the season and a bold print is great if you want to create a stunning feature wall. Leave three of your walls plain and create a unique focal point with one wall in a striking print. Purple is one of the hottest hues when it comes to prints and is set to be huge this season.

Eclectic Collections

In order for your home to be bang on trend, your furniture doesn’t even have to match. Eclectic decor is set to be big this year with mix and match items in different colours and styles. Thrift shops and vintage stores are great places to pick up chairs, tables and home accessories to help you create this look. The great thing about this trend is it is reasonably inexpensive and you can spend as little as you wish.

Eco Friendly Decor

Like neutrals, eco friendly decor isn’t something that will ever go out of fashion. Reclaimed wood, LED lights and recycled tiles are all ways to embrace greener living.
